How will Advanced Muscle Therapy resolve my issues with muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and nerves when my doctor hasn’t been able to do it?
What techniques are used by Advanced Muscle Therapy to resolve my muscular and joint pain?
We use various tools in helping us reach homeostasis in the human body. Number one, a fit body is a healthy body, this is why we offer fitness training for everyone. We have fitness for the healthy, we have fitness for the post medical rehab and we have fitness for the senior population.
We offer massage therapy which has shown in study after study to be the best line of defense for muscle or joint pain developed through injuries or just aging.
Massage techniques such as cupping, deep tissue, myofascial release, neuromuscular massage, and Active Release Techniques are used daily in our offices.
Our Doctor is on staff to help with any situations that may need a special assessment or physical therapy prescribed by an MD.
We offer so many modalities that sometimes we can’t put everything in a short concise group, however, here are some of the tools we use to help you resolve your pain:
- Piezo Wave2: We offer extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) to help remove restrictions and adhesions along the full length of the muscle, tendons and ligaments.
- Light MD: Our red light and infra-red light machine was developed by a NASA scientist and has shown remarkable results in healing burned tissue, post surgical wounds, strained muscles, chronic sinus issues that present with headaches and chronic pain from post surgical areas.
- Tool assisted myofascial release: Gua Shau blades remove adhesions along tendons and ligaments. Cupping helps reduce inflammation and assists myofascial release that helps restore tonicity to the human body. Foam Rollers assist in myofascial release and may be used in the office or at home with proper instruction. Hypervolts are state of the art percussion instruments that help reduce sensitivity and pain in an area that needs additional fascial therapy.
Stretch Therapy: We offer a unique fascial stretching technique that, over the last 15 years, has given our clients freedom of movement without pain and our athletes the flexibility they need to compete in today’s high speed endurance races.
My doctor and all my friends have suggested that I call Advanced Muscle Therapy. How can I make an appointment and do I need a prescription?
Do you take insurance?
Why don't you accept insurance?
How many treatments will it take to resolve my problem?
We hear this question every time we consult with a new client. Unfortunately, there really is no way to answer that question with a definitive answer. Frequency of visits is determined on a case by case basis. For the last 20 years we have developed a comprehensive understanding of what our therapy can and cannot do. However, if there is no change after three visits, we will refer you to your doctor. Typically even our most challenging cases experience at least a 75% improvement within their first three visits.

Do you offer Personal Training and how frequently should I see a trainer?
Many weekly clients reduce their frequency of personal training sessions to bi-weekly or even monthly once they’ve demonstrated the ability to consistently get to the gym and progress their exercises as recommended. Although we miss seeing their smiling faces, we are always proud when clients reduce their need to see us because they’ve become self-directed exercisers.

Why can't I just do cardio?
Adding strength training to your program allows you to (1) increase the load on your legs, (2) change the range of motion you move your joints through and (3) target muscles that you don’t typically use during cardiovascular training.
