Rehabilitate your injury and strengthen your core with Pilates

Pilates is as a strength- and agility-building exercise that has skyrocketed to popularity in gyms and health clubs around the country. Pilates exercises are typically performed on a mat or an exercise machine called a Reformer, and focus on strengthening the core. You might be surprised to learn that Pilates is also a form of extremely effective rehabilitative therapy. Pilates might be the missing element you need to put you on a faster road to recovery.

What conditions can Pilates help treat?

Many injuries and chronic soft tissue issues result from muscular imbalances. Muscle overuse, poor posture, a tendency to sit or lay in one position, overwearing high heels — all of these can cause the muscles to shorten or lengthen on one side, resulting in back pain, neck pain, or other chronic problems. These muscular imbalances can also make us more prone to muscle strains, rips, and pulls. Pilates is ideal for treating any condition caused by a muscular imbalance. It is also an effective treatment method for people with multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions, osteoporosis, scoliosis, and other orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions.  

Why try Pilates at Integrated Physical Health?

If you want to incorporate Pilates into your rehab regimen in Tulsa, it’s very important to work with a trained physical therapist and not attempt Pilates at the gym or with a personal trainer. Pilates exercises have to be carefully adapted to treat injuries and chronic conditions, and you’ll need a trained therapist to ensure you don’t inadvertently make your injury worse. At Integrated Physical Health, our trained physical therapists utilize Pilates rehab to help improve your recovery time. We also offer Pilates rehab for Tulsa and the surrounding communities in combination with our other treatment protocols, including chiropractic treatment and massage therapy.

Titleist Exam

Fitness Assessment for Amateur and Professional Golfers

The Titleist Performance Institute or TPI, a part of Titleist golf, is an industry leader in physical fitness assessment for amateur and professional golfers. The assessment is a tiered approach to measuring your range of motion and core strength of the muscles and joints used in the modern day golf swing. The TPI assessment takes about an hour to conduct in the comfort of his office.

Dr. Bachman is a licensed chiropractor in south Tulsa with works in sports medicine with several area athletes using the Active Release Technique or ART and is certified by Titleist as a Level 1 Assessment professional.

Kinesio tape supports and facilitates motion

What is Kinesio Taping?

The Kinesio Taping Method is a specialized rehabilitative technique designed to support muscles, joints, and soft tissues. It involves applying a special elastic-like tape in specific places on the skin, over and around affected muscles and/or joints. Kinesio Tape provides strategic support to affected tissues, promotes proper healing, and prevents over-contraction during the healing process. While most people think of tape as restricting motion, Kinesio Tape is designed to support and facilitate normal motion. With this method, the patient can still be a full participant in normal activities, just with a bit of additional support. Just ask Olympic, professional, collegiate, and amateur athletes how helpful it can be!

How is Kinesio Tape applied?

Kinesio Tape is very stretchy and about the thickness of the skin. To apply it to your injury, we cut the tape to the correct size, then apply it to your skin using therapeutic techniques designed specifically for your type of injury. The tape provides a sort of brace across your muscle or tendon but does not cause pain or discomfort. You can shower and swim while wearing Kinesio Tape, which is left on the skin for days, weeks, or longer, depending on the injury.

What is Kinesio Tape used for?

The Kinesio Taping Method is a versatile treatment used for both chronic conditions and rehabilitation of injuries. We will assess your condition and determine if this method might help. It is most often used for sports injuries caused from overuse, but we also use Kinesio Tape for a wide range of orthopedic, neurological, and neuromuscular conditions, including everything from muscle strains to joint instability to tendonitis.

At Integrated Physical Health, we always tailor your treatment to your condition. We typically utilize the Kinesio Taping Method in conjunction with other treatments like chiropractic care, massage, and/or physical therapy.

Our Tulsa chiropractors treat the cause of your discomfort

Tulsa chiropractic adjustment

A chiropractic adjustment is the most common form of treatment utilized by chiropractors in clinical practice. Also known as spinal manipulative therapy, an adjustment is a non-invasive, manual procedure using highly-refined skills developed through years of intensive chiropractic education. An adjustment is a carefully controlled procedure delivered by a skilled practitioner to dysfunctional spinal or extremity joints. The primary goal is to decrease pain, improve movement in joints and supporting tissues, and decrease muscle tightness or spasm. We do this by restoring the normal mechanics and functioning of the spine, extremities, and supporting soft tissues. An adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, you may experience mild soreness or aching after treatment, though this usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.

What do IPH’s Tulsa chiropractors treat?

At Integrated Physical Health, our chiropractors adapt each procedure to meet the specific needs of our patients. We also specially modify our techniques when treating children, pregnant women, and older patients. Most of our patients seek chiropractic healthcare for conditions affecting the spine such as low back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Research consistently shows that chiropractic treatment is effective for these conditions, and we’re proud to say our patients typically notice improvements in their symptoms immediately following treatment.

Primary & complementary Tulsa chiropractic care

For many conditions, like lower back pain, chiropractic care may be our primary method of treatment. For patients with other medical conditions, we may use chiropractic care  to complement or support other medical treatment by relieving musculoskeletal discomfort associated with the condition. Chiropractic care may also be palliative, providing symptomatic relief to patients with chronic conditions. By treating the musculoskeletal elements of such disorders, chiropractic treatment may improve the general well-being of the patient.

At Integrated Physical Health, we are proud to serve our Tulsa community, offering both primary and complementary chiropractic care. We would love to work together as your Tulsa chiropractor of choice.

The power of massage for muscle pain

What is massage therapy?

Massage is an effective treatment for muscle, joint, and soft tissue pain. Massage has been used for centuries, and today researchers have discovered specific, proven methods to apply exact pressure and friction to affected tissues to generate real results, decreasing pain and promoting healing. At Integrated Physical Health, our massage therapists are trained to focus on soft tissues affected by chronic conditions as well as stress, injuries, and acute illness using precise manual techniques.

A massage therapy session at Integrated Physical Health may last from 15 minutes to an hour. It involves a therapist using his or her hands, and sometimes elbows and forearms, to apply pressure and manipulate the soft tissues. Massage can do you a world of good, and getting a massage frequently can do even more. This is the beauty of bodywork. This form of self-care can play a huge role in your overall health. Regularly-scheduled bodywork is truly an investment in your health.

Massage therapy benefits

Massage therapy increases blood flow to injured or aching tissues which speeds up the healing process. Massage therapy at Integrated Physical Health can help to:

  • Improve your circulation
  • Relax your muscles
  • Decrease muscle spasms
  • Relieve chronic or injury-related pain
  • Treat scar tissue and adhesions
  • Reduce stress
  • Support your immune system
  • Promote overall health and wellbeing

Tulsa massage therapy at Integrated Physical Health

Just because massage feels pampering doesn’t make it any less therapeutic. Think of your massage appointments at Integrated Physical Health as a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.

Active Release Technique: Specialized Tulsa soft tissue manipulation

What is Active Release Technique (ART)?

Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented therapeutic massage technique designed specifically for problems with the muscles and other soft tissues. Most muscle pulls and tears, scar tissue, and other acute and chronic soft tissue injuries can be felt by an ART specialist’s trained hands.

ART uses a series of specific massage techniques and patient movements to treat these issues, hence the name “active release.” There are over 500 specific, patented ART therapy protocols, and we are specially trained to choose the one you need to feel relief from your soft-tissue problems. Many common conditions that cause discomfort and pain can be treated with ART, including overuse injuries, carpal-tunnel syndrome, headaches, pinched nerves, bursitis, sciatica, elbow tennis, and more.

What is the healing process like with ART?

Most patients experience some discomfort during treatment because we must manipulate your affected tissues to promote healing, but doctors trained in ART are careful to stay within a patient’s pain tolerance levels. Some people experience slight inflammation of the area after treatment.

Tulsa massage: ART treatment at Integrated Physical Health

Every Active Release session at Integrated Physical Health involves a thorough muscle examination where one of our trained specialists uses their hands to assess the condition of your affected muscles or other soft tissue. We check for muscle texture and tightness issues that might indicate scar tissue buildup or tears, as well as movement problems that might indicate pinched nerves, muscle pulls or tears, or other conditions causing pain. After identifying the precise location and likely cause of the problem, we treat abnormal tissues with a combination of precise massage and simultaneous patient movements.

At Integrated Physical Health, we are among few Tulsa chiropractors or Tulsa massage therapists trained and certified in ART therapy. In fact, our team is proud to provide ART therapy to several Tulsa sports teams including the Talons, Shock, 66ers, and the Oilers.

Tulsans restore mechanical function with pre- and post-surgery rehab

Tulsa prehab services: A proactive approach to injuries that require surgery

If you have a condition that requires surgery, you likely also experience pain, inflammation, scar tissue adhesions, and swelling at the injury site and surrounding muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Our chiropractors and physical therapists use Active Release Technique (ART) to break up scar tissue and reduce pain and inflammation.

Additionally, research shows that patients who undergo surgery in good physical condition greatly improve their chances for a successful operation. Proper “prehab,” including ART and controlled specific exercise, prepares your body and the injury site for the surgical procedure. When you go into surgery, your muscles will be optimized for recovery, improving the efficacy of surgery and shortening your recovery time. We’ve also seen many cases where prehab helped delay surgery significantly, and some patients have been able to avoid surgery altogether because their symptoms had resolved completely.

Tulsa rehab services: Recovery from surgery through soft tissue rehabilitation

After you’ve gone through surgery, you might experience swelling, inflammation, and scar tissue buildup in the soft tissues around the surgical site. Our chiropractors utilize Active Release Technique (ART) combined with ultrasound and electric stimulation to break up scar tissue and end the cycle of inflammation, decreasing pain and improving your range of motion. ART, combined with proper controlled exercise, will strengthen and balance the repaired site and result in better and quicker recovery outcomes.

What is Trigger Point Dry Needling?

Trigger point dry needling is a form of physical therapy that uses small needles (similar to those used for acupuncture) to cause a biochemical reaction that reduces pain and increases mobility.

Is dry needling different than acupuncture?

Although both dry needling and acupuncture use similar instruments to achieve increased mobility and reduced pain, acupuncture is based on ancient Eastern approaches to medicine. Dry needling, on the other hand, is based in Western medicine and has been proven effective by recent clinical research.

How does dry needling work?

During trigger point dry needling therapy, also called intramuscular stimulation, your doctor will insert a small, disposable solid filament needle into the myofascial trigger point that is causing you discomfort. By manipulating the muscle in the trigger point, your doctor will elicit a local “twitch” response that will help the trigger point release. The release of this trigger point will increase your mobility and eliminate or decrease the level of discomfort you’ve been experiencing.
