SOL’s clients – and heroes – are Olympic athletes and weekend warriors of all ages who strive to jump a little higher, run a little faster, and walk a little taller. They are also veterans recovering from acute or chronic conditions, workers recovering from on-the-job injuries, eighty year-olds breaking records in their eighties, parents trying to keep up with young children, and folks of all walks-of-life in between.
At SOL Physical Therapy + Performance, we believe that everyone is – and can be- an athlete. We also believe in movement for life so every service SOL provides is designed to help you achieve the types of movement that will help you feel good for life. Our scientific approach to healing combined with our human-centered approach to care ensures you learn everything you’ll need to transform, renew and surpass your own perceived limitations!
Active Release Technique® (ART) is a specialized soft tissue intervention which effectively minimizes the development of scar tissue and adhesions that follow injury. Scarring and tissue adhesions that occur in the soft tissue of the body can lead to pain, weakness, immobility, and generalized dysfunction – all of which are addressed through the use of the specialized ART approach.
The AlterG is a revolutionary approach to rehabilitation and training. AlterG’s unique unweighting technology reduces the impact of walking or running, giving post-operative and post-injury patients the opportunity to rehabilitate and resume training earlier than ever before.
ELDOA is a revolutionary stretching and strengthening technique for the spine and joints of the body. The ELDOAs, developed by French Osteopath Dr. Guy Voyer, target every level of your spine to decompress and normalize the tension around each vertebrae.
If you’re an athlete who suffers from occasional muscle pain or chronic injury, you may have tried massage and other treatments that exert pressure for the promotion of healing on the source of your soft tissue “hot spot.” If these treatments have proven unsuccessful in getting you back in the exercise saddle, consider the power of light.
You may have seen some of the world’s most elite athletes hanging out between competitions and practices in a pair of space age-looking boots. They’re not the latest in athleisure but rather a recovery method. The thigh-high sleeves provide intermittent pneumatic compression — a therapeutic, controlled pressure cycle to the limbs — for the purpose of reviving the legs for their next performance.
Safe and refreshing, the many benefits of SOL Pilates include the development of stable core musculature which protects the spine from dysfunction, the creation of lean and flexible muscles through emphasis on strength throughout the joint range of motion, and balanced movement patterns which result in efficient motion and reduced incidence of injury.
