Injury Assessment – Not sure what may have happened, deciding where you need to go or what specialist to see? At Synergy Sports and Rehab, we provide a comprehensive injury assessment and look at your dysfunction, range of motion, joint mobility, and strength, in conjunction with performing any joint or muscle special test to determine the severity of your injury. With this, you can direct yourself to the appropriate course of care.
Spine Rehab – We specialize in the assessment and treatment of spinal and sacroiliac dysfunctions to identify the primary cause of pain and functional limitations. Our therapists assess the spinal segmental joint mobility and stability, and integrate this information with the evaluation of movement patterns, neurological status, strength, and overall flexibility. It is our goal to get to the root of the problem and treat the dysfunction as well as the symptoms.
Trigger Point Dry Needling – TDN is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm which commonly follows injuries and often accompanies the degenerative processes. Our highly-trained therapists use small, thin needles inserted into the muscles at the trigger points. The muscles then contract and release, improving flexibility of the muscle and decreasing symptoms.
Custom Orthotics – Orthotics are designed to maintain a healthy foot position so that your feet can function properly. Orthotics also improve shock absorption which helps prevent injuries throughout the body and then correct mal-alignment issues which interfere with optimum performance. At Synergy, we perform a thorough assessment which includes a biomechanical evaluation from your spine to your feet to determine the best custom orthotics for your needs. The benefits of custom orthotics include decreasing pain and improving function not only in the foot, but also in other parts of the body such as the knee, hip and lower back.
Myofascial Release – At Synergy, our therapists utilize an evidence-based approach to get the best results possible. Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to the connective tissue to correct abnormal movement patterns, restore motion and eliminate pain.
Injury Prevention – We believe that the best way to stay healthy longer is through injury prevention. Our custom injury prevention programs are a proactive way to help you implement proper techniques and approaches to daily life that will help you avoid injuries. We also offer sport-specific injury prevention training that can keep athletes of all levels self-aware and performing their best.

We work with competitive and recreational athletes as well as weekend warriors across various team and individual sports. Our therapists know what it takes to return you to your highest performance and therefore we build custom programs to suit your needs.

Kinesio Taping – Whether you are an athlete competing at the highest level or someone looking to find relief from your daily activities, Kinesio Tape might be right for you! Thousands of Americans are experiencing powerful results from this state-of-the-art technique. Kinesio Taping utilizes a strong, flexible “tape” that is activated by body heat. When properly applied, it provides stability and support to the joints and surrounding muscles and improves circulation while still allowing for full range of motion.
Concussion Management – Concussions are a growing concern in all levels of sports. They are all over television and are things that at times are presented as, “just a concussion” and are often anti-climactic events that the audience is led to believe will be over in days, if not hours. The reality of these conditions is a bit more serious. These concussions are actually traumatic brain injuries – which usually stem from a fall, severe shaking, a car accident or a direct blow to the head– which can severely impact a person’s quality of life for several months. Left untreated, this injury can lead to serious long term conditions that effect memory, personality, and even inhibit growth in younger children. Understanding the seriousness of concussion symptoms and being able to determine the difference between a concussion and other types of injuries that may present in the same way, can save patients a significant amount of time, money, and anguish every year. Fortunately, there are things in the field of physical therapy that are being discovered all the time, that can be used to help patients suffering from long-term concussion complications.
