We provide hands-on therapy techniques for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries such as sprains/strains, tendonitis, and fractures as well as pre- and post-operative rehab.

Sports Physical Therapy
We provide injury management for athletes who are recovering from acute or chronic injuries and who desire a rapid return to competition. Each athlete will learn how to condition his/her body to achieve optimal levels of performance.
Dry needling is a treatment performed by skilled, trained Physical Therapists certified in the procedure. Dry needling uses small skin pricks to stimulate a so-called “twitch” response in the muscle fibers in the tight bands of tissue, which then releases the spasm or trigger point that is causing the pain. When the needle is expertly inserted into the skin, the action stimulates nerve fibers for the management of neuro-musculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
Lymphedema is a chronic lymphatic disease that results in disfiguring swelling in one or more parts of the body. It has several causes, including cellulitis, radiation therapy, deep vein thrombosis, or cancer surgery that resulted in the removal of lymph nodes to name a few. Our staff has undergone rigorous coursework and testing to be able to provide this life-changing treatment to residents of Muscatine and surrounding communities.
