Different communities have different needs. That’s why we offer several different types of treatment options at our facilities. Since each location is different, be sure to look at the facilities in your area to see if they offer the specific types of therapy you require.
VitalStim Therapy is a safe and effective treatment for patients that have difficulty swallowing or experience dysphagia. It is a non-invasive, external electrical stimulation therapy that applies specially designed electrodes to the muscles of the throat to promote proper swallowing. VitalStim is the only therapy that carries FDA clearance for the treatment of dysphagia. This treatment is available in our Grundy, Virginia Beach, Big Stone Gap, Blacksburg, Blackstone, Leesburg, and Clintwood locations.
Complex Decongestive Physiotherapy for Lymphedema
Complex Decongestive Physiotherapy (CDP) is the conservative treatment of choice for lymphedema. Lymphedema is the excessive accumulation of tissue fluid due to a disorder of the lymphatic vessels or nodes. It is a chronic condition and will usually worsen over time if left untreated. CDP involves a regime of manual therapy, medical compression (bandaging or wrapping of the area), skin care, patient education and isotonic exercises. The effectiveness of this therapy is well documented in medical and professional journals and is considered the “gold standard” of care in medicine today. This treatment is available at our Blacksburg location.
Myofascial Release is a gentle, hands on approach used to free up restrictions in connective tissue throughout the body. The therapist releases the tight fascia by applying sustained pressure into the fascial barrier or restriction, allowing permanent elongation of tissues. As additional fascial layers are released, the client gains greater flexibility. This helps decrease pain, enhance daily functional abilities and refine athletic performance by increasing the ease of movement and improved structural balance and integrity. This treatment is available at our Laurel Meadows location.
