Our Fields of Expertise
We provide one-on-one therapist to patient treatment (manual therapy based) to ensure the quickest and most complete functional outcomes for our patients.
Functional Dry Needling
FDN uses a fine filament needle without medication or injection into muscle tissue to alleviate pain and dysfunction.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a system of manually resisted exercises performed in diagonal patterns that mimic functional movements.
Progressive Resistive Exercises (PRE)
Progressive Resistive Exercises (PRE) are exercises that gradually increase in resistance (weights) and in repetitions.
Posture Training is instruction in the correct biomechanical alignment of the body to reduce undue strain on muscles, joints, ligaments, discs, and other soft tissues.

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) is - the application of electrical stimulation to aid in improving strength (e.g., the quadriceps muscle after knee surgery or injury).
Neck traction is a gentle longitudinal/axial pull on the neck, either manual or mechanical, intermittent or continuous for relief of neck pain, to decrease muscle spasm and facilitate
Mobilization consists of hands-on therapeutic procedures intended to increase soft tissue or joint mobility. Mobilization is usually prescribed to increase mobility, delaying progressive

Treatment of Balance and Fall Prevention
Evaluation and Assessment of falls, or “near falls” and balance. Tri-City will give you ways to address and manage your apprehension of falling or “near falling.”
Active Range of Motion (AROM)
The patient lifts or moves a body part through range of motion against gravity. AROM is usually one of the first modalities prescribed for arthritis.
Active Assistive Range of Motion (AAROM)
Therapist-assisted active range of motion. This is usually prescribed for gentle stretching or strengthening for a very weak body part.
Gait or Walking Training is the analysis of walking problems by visually examining the interaction of the low back and the joints of the thighs, legs, and feet during the various ...
