How it works

Ultrasound imaging is a new and exciting musculoskeletal tool that is revolutionizing the orthopedic health care world. A diagnostic ultrasound machine sends sound waves into the body, the sound waves then reflect off the body in order to produce an image. Normal functioning body tissue will provide echoes from the sound waves in a typical fashion. Abnormal tissue will display a different image; your Doctor of Physical Therapy can use this imaging to discover dysfunction and pathology that can be missed in a routine physical exam.

ultrasound BENEFITS

An effective and efficient alternative to MRIs

Ultrasound imaging is quick, painless, and proven to be as accurate as MRI in diagnosing several conditions, including:

  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Achilles tendon tears
  • Ligament sprains
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Bone spurs
  • and more!
MOST INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL MAKE YOU WAIT FOR AN MRI,
BUT STAATS PHYSICAL THERAPY CAN PROVIDE AN IMAGE SAME DAY!

Dr. Staats has received advanced accreditation in the use of Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound imaging. This allows the Physical Therapists at Staats Physical Therpay to devise a more appropriate treatment plan and determine if there is a need for an outside referral.

Manual Therapy


Manual Therapy


Manual Physical Therapy is a unique treatment approach integrating hands on techniques with ongoing assessment to stretch and manipulate soft tissue throughout the body. Throughout the course of aging or after periods of immobilization, joints become more viscous and lose their ability to respond to the stresses of daily activities. These same joints will gradually lose their range of motion, create adaptive shortening of the adjacent muscles and overall create aberrant functioning. Manual Physical Therapist’s provide patients with a comprehensive evaluation seeking to identify restricted joints and/or unstable joints. Manual Therapy can consist of a gentle stretch to muscle tissue, a muscle enegy technique to correct a positional fault, a joint mobilization to improve normal arthrokinematic motion or even a high velocity low amplitude thrust to stimulate Type 3 mechanoreceptors and increase mobility. Dr. Staats utilizes an array of these techniques and others to provide his patients with relief from pain and restore optimal functional mobility.

According to the Journal of Manual & Manipulative Therapy, patients treated by therapists with Manual Therapy Certification reported higher functional outcomes than those without. (JMMT Vol. 12 No. 1 2004, 32-43)

Dry Needling


Dry Needling


Dry needling is used to treat an array of musculoskeletal conditions—injuries that affect muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other structures which support the neck, back, or limbs.

Thin, fusiform needles are inserted into the dysfunctional tissue, disrupting the chemical holding pattern and thus evoking a healing response. During a dry needling session, the Doctor of Physical Therapy will insert the needle into the dysfunctional tissue, often a trigger point. Dry needling is often painless, but occasionally will elicit a brief dull ache, or a "twitch response." This twitch response may feel much like a muscle cramp, and lasts only a short period as the trigger point is deactivated. Many patients experience immediate improvement in pain, range of function, and overall functional well-being.

Though often mistaken for Acupuncture/Chinese medicine, Dry Needling is a modern Western medicine approach based on a strong understanding of anatomy. Dry Needling directly targets dysfunctional tissue, while Acupuncture utilizes the dogma of meridians as related to the flow of Qi.

Patients suffering from the following conditions may benefit from Dry Needling:

Headaches, Neck/Back Pain, Tendinitis, Patella Femoral Syndrome, Sciatica, Hip/Knee Osteoarthritis, Muscle Strains, Fibromyalgia, Tennis/Golfer's Elbow, Overuse Injuries, Chronic/Acute Conditions, and more
