Physical Therapy

At Anderson Sport and Wellness Physical Therapy Corporation, pre-hab, post-hab and personal training/sports conditioning all follow the same philosophy. All services are one on one for the entire 60 minute session with a doctor of physical therapy. We believe complete healing requires active participation on your part and in most cases includes but is not limited to gentle soft tissue mobilization techniques including myofascial release, Jones' Strain Counterstrain, MELT Method self-care, and exercise. This approach promotes permanent structural change, eliminating pain and other symptoms.

Anderson Sport and Wellness Physical Therapy Corporation is an out of network provider with all insurance companies.

Why being out of network with insurance benefits patients:

Our mission is to provide the very best possible care to our patients. Being in-network with insurance would mean limiting time with the physical therapist per session to 20 minutes. Being out of network means that the entire 60-minute physical therapy session is provided by a doctor of physical therapy with no use of aids to increase billable time. This helps patients because the number of visits per week and per episode of care can often be decreased, saving time and money in the long run.

At Anderson Sport and Wellness you will be gently encouraged to advance beyond your current limits with cutting edge treatment techniques, including the John F. Barnes method of Myofascial Release, Jones Strain Counterstrain, and vibration technology. Your treatment will always be 1 on 1 with a doctor of physical therapy for the entire session and customized to your unique needs and goals.

Myofascial Release

Connective tissue dysfunction is often a cause or contributing factor in issues such as chronic pain, neck pain, back pain, TMJ dysfunction, postural imbalances, plantar fasciitis, and fibromyalgia.

Myofascial release is a technique used by clinicians who have been trained to recognize and treat connective tissue dysfunction. Tremendous recent breakthroughs in connective tissue research have demonstrated that connective tissue influences the nervous and muscular systems much more profoundly than has been previously believed.

The John Barnes approach to myofascial release is a gentle hands-on technique that facilitates a stretch into restricted soft-tissue utilizing low grade sustained pressure.

Unlike other forms of massage, the John Barnes approach to myofascial release treatment addresses the elastic component of connective tissue producing a restoration of appropriate length and space to compressed structures. This allows the neuromuscular components of the system to function within optimal ranges and produces relief from pain or stiffness.

Strain Counterstrain

Strain Counterstrain is a powerful tool used by a select number of clinicians trained by the Jones Institute. Through gently moving joints into positions of ease for the neuromuscular system, the system is rebalanced, resulting in relief of pain and muscle spasms. ​This technique is especially effective for whiplash injuries, chronic pain conditions, muscle spasms, TMJ dysfunction, and headaches.

Therapeutic Exercise

In most cases, therapeutic exercise will be an important component of your recovery process. All exercise programs are individually tailored to your needs and goals and personally supervised by Dr. Nicole Anderson, physical therapist.
