PHYSICAL THERAPY

At Lone Peak Physical Therapy, we go way beyond traditional therapy techniques, implementing an innovative system that allows our team to accurately and efficiently analyze, treat, and train human movement. We know that human movement is dynamic and takes place in an upright position. Why do so many providers evaluate and treat patients while they are statically lying on a table or sitting on machines?

Our team understands that the only way to achieve long term pain resolution is to seek out the root cause of the problem by analyzing clients in an authentic environment. We evaluate each individual in a truly functional environment utilizing our unique 3D movement assessment.  The human body is a compensating machine that hides dysfunctional movement patterns that manifest as pain and limitation elsewhere in the body. Our movement experts know how to ask your body the right questions, revealing the subtle limitations responsible for your pain. We then partner with you in implementing a personalized program based on your goals, promoting a faster recovery with lasting results.

Commonly treated diagnoses:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Work injuries
  • Shoulder pain (tendonitis/bursitis, impingement, instability)
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Knee pain (tendonitis, patella femoral tracking, IT band syndrome)

PERFORMANCE COACHING

Getting to the point where you are pain free is only one piece of the puzzle. True wellness is a continuum and improving your performance and preventing injury can be more important than just eliminating pain. To that end, we also offer performance coaching and personal training services to our clients.  We utilize a functional, multi-directional training approach to enhance performance and improve overall fitness. The performance coaches at Lone Peak implement cutting-edge techniques to prevent injury, while increasing strength, flexibility, power, quickness, balance and cardiovascular stamina, all in a fun, motivational environment.

Our functional integrated training system is based on the principles of Applied Functional Science (AFS). This system places the focus directly on the client and their needs, not on a one-style fits all training philosophy. What makes us different is our advanced level of understanding of tri-planar human movement, which lets us design programs that are more efficient at meeting each client’s goals. As a result, our clients are able to train safely and achieve results faster than with more traditional training techniques.

DRY NEEDLING

Experience this innovative approach that helps to release muscle tension and restore normal function. It is important to us that you are able to return to your activities as quickly as possible and functional dry needling can help you do that. Functional Dry Needling (FDN) uses thin filament (non-hollow) needles to treat symptoms stemming from a variety of conditions. FDN eliminates tension, relieves trigger points, increases motion and most importantly, restores function. Needling is a powerful tool that allows us to directly address muscle tension and pain.  We find FDN to be a great compliment to our whole body functional approach to rehabilitation.  The dramatic improvement FDN elicits in the soft tissues allows an easier transition to more advanced rehab techniques, ensuring a quicker recovery for you, the client.

Dry needling should not be confused with acupuncture, a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is similar to acupuncture in that it uses needles to address myofascial restriction, but it is part of modern Western medicine principles, and supported by research (1).



Preliminary research (2) supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. This can help speed up the patient's return to active rehabilitation.
