Conditions MFR Can Treat

 

At From the Heart Physical Therapy we take pride in providing you with the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care through delivery of Myofascial Release treatments, education and a safe healing environment to help you meet your goals.

 

Our skilled therapists at FTHPT will evaluate, treat and educate each patient individually. Our focus is to find the cause of YOUR pain, create lasting and effective structural changes in your body in order to alleviate pain and dysfunction. Most importantly, we empower every patient to become their own therapist through providing them with the knowledge and necessary tools to self care.

Pediatrics

MFR is a highly effective adjunct treatment which can produce consistent results in children suffering with orthopedic problems such as:

  • Scoliosis
  • Birthing trauma or injuries
  • Head trauma
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Asthma symptoms

 

  • Digestive and elimination issues
  • Pelvic imbalances
  • Other neurological and movement dysfunctions

Initial Evaluation

Your initial appointment will be 75 minutes long which includes a complete evaluation of your history, posture, flexibility and strength for detection of your specific fascial restrictions and cause of your pain and dysfunction.

 

Individual Treatment Sessions

A typical appointment is 50 minutes long, however 80 minute and 100 minute appointments are available and commonly scheduled.

 

Co-Treatment Sessions

This is a must have experience! When you have four or six therapeutic hands simultaneously unraveling your compressed and tangled three-dimensional fascial web, the effectiveness of your treatment is significantly enhanced. Most patients describe this feeling as being on Cloud 9 or heavenly! For many, this produces results equivalent to multiple single treatments.

 

Intensive Programs

Our Intensive Treatment Program is a two to four week plan designed for individuals with chronic pain and limited mobility who have exhausted many other therapeutic options and are on the verge of losing hope.

 

This program includes:

  • A comprehensive evaluation
  • 15-18 therapist hours per week provided by our team of multi-talented and highly skilled therapists trained by John F. Barnes, usually including a daily co-treatment session
  • Inner Journey and Myofascial Unwinding Workshop
  • Self Treatment Plan includes the design and detailed review of an individualized home exercise program empowering patients to reproduce similar treatment results at home
  • Re-evaluation at the end of the Intensive Program
