What to Expect At Diversified Physical Therapy
As our patient, you can trust we will focus on you as a whole — we want to help improve you overall wellbeing.

Quality Therapeutic & Rehabilitative Services
Manual therapy techniques are used to increase range of motion, regulate pain, reduce soft tissue swelling and inflammation, induce relaxation, improve muscle elasticity, and more. Manual therapy involves skilled hand movements and passive movements of soft tissues and joints to improve physical function and enhance wellness.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is designed to release tension deep in the body, resulting in lowered dysfunction and pain relief, while improving whole-body health and performance. Developed by John E. Upledger, a osteopathic physician and professor of biomechanics at Michigan State University, this technique utilizes soft touch to release restrictions in the soft tissues surrounding the central nervous system. This enhances your body’s ability to self-correct and can help alleviate a complete range of dysfunctions, including sports injuries, chronic pain, and neurological impairment.
Myofascial Release Techniques
This treatment involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue to help restore motion and eliminate pain. It is safe and very effective, as it promotes proper body mechanics and movement, enhances strength, improves flexibility, and enhances postural awareness. Myofascial Release is used for patients who have experienced trauma, inflammatory, and/or surgical procedures which have created myofascial restrictions.
This type of therapy is performed by a physical or occupational therapist to treat conditions affecting the upper extremities and hands. It is our goal through our hand therapy services to help return you to your highest level of function.
