Services We Offer

Whereas traditional physical therapy will spend a great majority of the treatment focused exclusively on the injured body part (lower back pain, knee pain, etc.), AFS teaches us that to effectively treat an injury such as lower back pain, we need to assess and treat not only the lower back, but also the foot/ankle complex, the knees, the hips, and the thoracic spine (mid back). With this approach, we not only relieve pain, swelling, stiffness, and dysfunction of the particular body part, we also identify and treat the underlying causes of the lower back pain (or wherever your problem area is), so that you’re less likely to have a recurrence of the problem.

What is AFS?

Probably the simplest way to define Applied Functional Science is to go back to the song “Dem Bones” that many of us sang for fun as children – “The shin bone’s connected to the knee bone, the knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone…”. One of the primary principles of AFS is that the body is one big chain reaction, that what goes on at one joint or region in the body profoundly affects other joints or regions.

Frequently, the source of your pain is not the ultimate cause of your problem. All of our treatments consist of a combination of at least 30 minutes of hands-on manual therapy (joint mobilizations, soft tissue mobilizations, etc.), and at least 30 minutes of directly-supervised therapeutic exercise to improve mobility, flexibility, strength, endurance, and proprioception. (link to FAQ page)

From an experiential standpoint, our process involves community, encouragement and a sense of family. In a perfect physical therapy world, the patient immediately makes extraordinary gains and their pain and problem is solved in two or three visits. And this happens, though not frequently. Oftentimes, the patient experiences smaller successes that are stacked on top of each other over a series of 8/10/12 visits. In cases such as these, it is essential that the patient embraces the process of physical therapy. As such, the environment of the clinic is super important. We take pride in providing a community environment that focuses on encouragement and empathy.

Our Treatment Process

From a biomechanical, physiological, and procedural standpoint, our treatment process is as follows: All of our treatments are based on the principles, strategies, and techniques of Applied Functional Science. This means that, in addition to diagnosing and treating the immediate cause of your pain and dysfunction, we also analyze, diagnose, and treat the underlying causes of your pain and dysfunction.

Acupunture

Acupuncture is a safe and effective healing art that is backed by more than two thousand years of practice and research. It is used worldwide both as a primary and adjunctive treatment for a wide range of conditions. The acupuncture experience is generally found to be relaxing, especially after a patient gets over any initial hesitation regarding needling. Acupuncture needles used today are very thin (almost hairlike) and come in pre sterilized packages. They’re disposed of properly after each use as is done in conventional medical settings. This eliminates the chance of contamination and transmission of disease.

Medical massage helps to manage swelling of joints such as ankles, knees, elbows, and wrists. Massage followed by functional mobilization is a particularly effective way to address chronic pain and fibromyalgia. A unique feature of medical massage therapy at G3 is the close communication our massage therapists have with G3’s physical therapist. This team approach helps clients reach their goals most efficiently.

Medical Massage

Massage is a great complement to physical therapy, as well as a great stand alone therapy modality. The many benefits of massage include increased blood flow to all tissues, with particular benefit to muscle spasms, trigger points, and restricted fascial tissue. Medical massage can also assist in relief of low back, neck, shoulder, hip, calf, and headache pain.
