Physical Therapy

At React Spine and Sports Institute, we provide evidence based rehabilitation techniques to improve the quality of joints and tissue, improve ranges of motion, and improve the control of movement.  The React team is certified in a number of physical therapy techniques to help patients improve quickly.

Functional Release

Functional Release is a soft tissue technique that is grounded in tissue adaptation at the cellular level.  There are many myths surrounding manual therapy that soft tissue adhesions can be broken or rolled out.   When you closely examine the extensive body of research, we can see that tissue adapts over a period of time depending on the force that is placed through tissue.   Our current environment encourages prolonged postures and repetitive tasks that negatively mold our tissue and lead to degenerative, dysfunctional changes.  Functional release is a technique that manually exerts a specific directional based force to encourage tissue to remodel appropriately.
