Passive Therapies

SIT BACK, RELAX, AND LET US DO THE HEAVY LIFTING

Passive treatment can help immediately relieve pain stemming from a wide variety of sources. Passive treatments offered at South Pointe Physical Rehab include Cupping, Kinesio Taping, Dry Needling, and Wet Needling. We like to pair our passive treatments with active treatment to keep our patients functional and pain free in the long term.

Cupping

When cupping is utilized correctly, the cups act on the layers of tissues and decompresses them, causing any points that are “stuck” to move freely again. This decompression of layers creates the potential for a global healing response.

Kinesio Taping

The functionality behind Kinesio Tape is that it microscopically lifts the skin, which can reduce discomfort and facilitate lymphatic drainage. Due to the many ways, locations, and reasons for applying this therapy, the uses are almost endless.

Dry Needling

Functional Dry Needling (FDN) is an extremely effective tool in treating restrictions in myofascial tissue as well as re-educating muscles that aren’t working properly. Functional Dry Needling is often a single component of a larger treatment plan.

Wet Needling

Wet Needling is an extremely effective tool in treating restrictions in myofascial tissue as well as re-educating muscles that aren’t working properly. Wet Needling is often a single component of a larger treatment plan.
