  • Active Release Technique: a service that breaks down scar tissue around injured areas, decreasing pain and stiffness in muscles and joints    
  • Dry needling: this treatment uses thin needles to penetrate the skin in order to treat the muscles that are impaired, decreasing pain and increasing mobility
