Approaches

Integrative Physiotherapy “integrates” a variety of treatment modes (also referred to as “modalities”) into their physical therapy approach. Strategies for treating each of their patient’s will be tailored individually.

Modalities that are most often deployed by the clinic include:

 

Functional Dry Needling : Dry needling  is a highly effective treatment for neuro-muscular and musculo-skeletal dysfunction. The 42408005 - young woman getting acupuncture treatment in therapy roomstrategy of dry needling is to activate and in the process reset specific neuro-muscular trigger points with the goal of improving musculo-skeletal function. It does not follow energy meridians as in traditional acupuncture in Fort Collins. Instead, dry needling focuses on natural trigger points associated with the site of injury and source of pain causing a physical discomfort. In our experience and others practicing this technique, the positive effect of traditional dry needling in Fort Collins can be dramatic, and nearly instantaneous in some case. In general, at Integrative Physiotherapy we often use dry needling as a conjunct to other standard therapies.
