What we Do

Your Treatment at Hopp Physical Therapy

In most cases, your treatment will be a comprehensive program consisting of exercise and flexibility programs, instruction in movement awareness and body mechanics, mobilization and muscle energy techniques, and modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, electric muscle simulation, and heat or icepacks.

Myofascial Release

The primary technique performed by our therapists for the mobilization of soft tissue is called "myofascial release" which focuses on restrictions in a tissue called "fascia".

Fascia is a tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three dimensional web from head to foot without interruption. The fascia surrounds every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel and organ of the body, down to the cellular level. Fascia supports and stabilizes, involving all aspects of motion, enhancing posture and absorbing shock, Trauma, inflammation or poor posture can create restrictions or binding down of the fascia, resulting in abnormal pressure on nerves, muscles, bones or organs.

This can cause pain or malfunction throughout the body, sometimes with seemingly unrelated symptoms. Standard test such as x-rays, CAT scans and MRI's do not show fascial restrictions.

CranioSacral Therapy

The craniosacral system (a physiological system like the cardiovascular and respiratory systems) provides the physical environment in which the brain and spinal cord develop and function.

The light-touch technique works with natural and unique rhythms of our different body systems to pinpoint and correct source problems.
