ADAPT PHYSICAL THERAPY
& PLAYER DEVELOPMENT SERVICES
Your physical therapy session will consist of an evaluation of your movement system to diagnose impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions in your current daily life. We will strive to integrate the best available evidence, clinical expertise, and your values to collaboratively make the best decisions for returning you back to the life you want to live.
Dry needling is utilized by a licensed physical therapist who has received additional training in this technique. This procedure is (Dry Needling) is defined by the Kansas Physical Therapy Practice Act, K. S. A. 65-2901 amendments thereto. Dry needling uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. As a patient you will be monitored during your dry needling appointment and your physical therapist will use appropriate infection control procedures to reduce the risk of infection. Dry needling as used in physical therapy is not acupuncture and should not be confused with a complete acupuncture treatment performed by a licensed acupuncturist. Patients who are interested in acupuncture should consult with a state licensed acupuncturist.
BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION TRAINING
Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFRT) is achieved through the application of external pressure over the extremities. The applied pressure is enough to maintain arterial inflow while occluding venous outflow distal to the occlusion site. The goal is to enable patients to make greater strength gains while lifting lighter loads, thereby reducing the overall stress placed on the limb. Our physical therapists have an existing firm foundation in anatomy, physiology, therapeutic exercise, and the cardiorespiratory system, as well as clinical reasoning, which are the components of the safe application of blood flow restriction training (BFRT). Physical therapist education provides PTs with the requisite knowledge (muscular and vascular anatomy, and physiology and exercise physiology), as well as skills (therapeutic exercise prescription, monitoring of physiological vital signs and blood flow) to perform and monitor this type of therapeutic exercise.
SPORT SPECIFIC PLAYER DEVELOPMENT
What separates us from most physical therapy clinics is our return to sport player development programs. How will we know if you are ready for your return to sport after an injury? At Adapt Physical Therapy and Player Development we utilize the most up to date research with physical therapy, bio-mechanics, strength/conditioning, and coaching to develop specific player development plans to return you back to sport from the youth to professional level.
Bio-mechanics incorporates a detailed analysis of sport specific movements in order to minimize the risk of injury and improve sports performance. Sport and exercise bio-mechanics encompass the area of science concerned with the analysis of the mechanics of human movement. It refers to the description, detailed analysis, and assessment of human movement during sport activities.
