Thrive Integrated Physical Therapy, in partnership with Dominican College, is proud to announce that Mark Comerford, author of Kinetic Control: The Management of Uncontrolled Movement and a highly regarded international educator is going to teach a course at our facility this fall. This will be a course open to physicians, physical therapists and athletic trainers. Dynamic taping was originally developed for Sports Physiotherapy, Dynamic Tape is proving extremely effective for both orthopedic , sports medicine, dance and neurologic conditions. Dynamic Tape is highly specialized and designed to contribute genuine mechanical force into the kinetic chain. Working like a bungee cord, the unique, strongly elastic Dynamic Tape aims to absorb load, contribute to force generation, improve biomechanical efficiency and modify faulty movement patterns. Load reduction combined with powerful neurophysiological effects may provide prompt pain relief, reduce metabolic demand, facilitate recovery and improve function.

If you’ve been following along with our Instagram, you may have noticed that Thrive has had a few in-services with the amazingly smart and talented Giulia Pline. Giulia introduced our entire staff to the Threes Physioyoga Method, which merges physical therapy principles with yoga. What more could we ask for? We were so impressed that we wanted to know more, so we decided to host, and have our staff participate, in their Intro Course for Physical Therapists which will take place right here at Thrive on February 23rd and 24th. We can’t wait to bring all of this new knowledge to our patients! About Threes Physiyoga Method for Physical Therapists This introductory weekend consists of foundational knowledge regarding the teaching of yoga as a mind-body-spirit wellness modality and how this modality can be integrated into traditional physical therapy for the benefit of the patient and the clinician. Yoga is a multi-limbed practice that unites movement with breath. Having an understanding of the influence and benefits of this practice on the body is a powerful, efficient tool for physiotherapists. Physiotherapists will be introduced to the Threes Physiyoga Method of assessing suboptimal and dysfunctional movement. They will understand the mechanics of breath, […]

General principles of functional anatomy, tissue and joint biomechanics, pathology and treatments are applied to clinical examination and treatment. Includes instruction and techniques of evaluating structure, active movements and palpation for condition, position and mobility of the spine. Manipulation techniques are instructed at all levels of the spine except the subcranial area. Supportive treatments, such as exercises and distraction, are instructed and practiced to a limited degree.
