Neuromuscular based presentations  'What do I feel?'

Altered performance at the nerve to muscle interface may be called muscular pain, myofascial dysfunction, trigger point syndrome, or neuromuscular distortion.

The presentation of this status /condition is a combination of many common symptoms:  sensation of tension (or stiffness), ache/throbbing/burning, weakness or sensation of instability, firmness with or without tenderness to touch, and often referred pain to a different area with interaction/palpation (pressing contact).   The intensity of each symptom can be different person to person (and muscle to muscle) and changes based on how activities interact with the related muscles.

These presentations come as a result of rapid events (impact, tug/pull) or sustained poor posture:  either cause results in the nervous system telling a portion of muscle to maintain activity to anticipate later events - indefinitely!

Fortunately, the problem is not progressive and will change rapidly when directly addressed.

Find out for yourself what changes come in 1 to 2 sessions!

The injury resolves but the remaining symptoms do not

Some events (muscular strains, joint sprains, even a percentage of of strains concurrent with bone fractures) result in the nervous system adjusting the input from a muscle or a joint/region to increase sensitivity in order to reduce the likelihood of reinjury.  While we consider this to be detrimental in general terms, the body/nervous system considers the change in status to be appropriate/beneficial and is sustained to 'protect' us.

Appropriately applied treatment will provide a stimulus to the nervous system to 'reset' or 'restore' this status to normal input/sensations.

The intent of my business 

Need a second opinion or a different point of view?  Concerned that different treatments have only helped briefly?

 

I have for many years been a second source of input for individuals who have seen limited success or have not succeeded in reducing persistent pain, weakness, or tightness in specific areas of the body with prior use of pain medication or non-invasive care. Over my last four military assignments, 25 out of 27 other physical therapists have referred patients to me for my evaluation and treatment approach - including many who have completed the same training.

Mission:  The 2nd Look will advance the awareness of northeast Kansas regarding neuromuscular based pain, tension, or weakness; collaboration with other providers will improve recognition and addressing these complaints through direct patient care and consumer education.

Vision: A scalable and sustainable business through collaboration with other medical and wellness professionals to provide complementary care options in response to variable and dynamic needs of the Leavenworth county communities.

Values: Availability to interested adults without regard to health insurance status, collaboration with other medical and wellness professionals, contributions to professional education, and candid representation of service capabilities and limitations to consumers.

What I Offer

Do you have pain with exertion?   A pulling sensation with stretching?  Stiffness after sitting more than 15 minutes?  

Muscular based symptoms that do not resolve within a few days to a couple weeks will linger indefinitely without direct intervention.  Whether the symptoms are present all the time or only with certain activities, most of my clients have reported months or years of ongoing complaints.  I had my own experience with a hip muscle for 12 years; even as a therapist I did not recognize it for what it was until attending more advanced training in 2011.

Where would we meet?

I have an office at Bella Vita Salon and Spa (4516 S 4th St Leavenworth) and spend time weekly at CrossFit Unconquered (902 N 7th St), Cobra Command Crossfit (14500 Parallel St in Basehor) and Eden's Gate Salon (2916 S 4th St Leavenworth - shared building with Genesis Health Club).   Your preference for exercise intensity (body weight or home exercise focused program vs gym exercise program) would determine which location we would meet after the initial evaluation session. 

I can provide service at any location with a minimum of 150 sq feet and adequate privacy, but alternate locations would need direct contact with at least 24 hours notice to allow for blocking for travel time.

Concerned about getting only one complaint addressed at a time?

I provide regional evaluation and treatment for multiple complaints as indicated.  Avoid having to contact your provider for multiple referrals or multiple evaluation session charges to include different complaints.

I have been certified since 2012 to provide advanced care with dry needling for muscular focused symptoms.

Areas I have commonly treated include:

  • Neck pain / upper back pain / tension headaches

  • Shoulder pain, weakness, and stiffness

  • Elbow / forearm and hand pain

  • Low back pain

  • Hip pain and tightness / thigh pain

  • Knee pain

  • Lower leg pain, ankle pain and weakness, and foot pain (arch or front of the foot)

My treatment techniques will include a combination of mobility and facilitation exercises, soft tissue release through ischemic compression, and dry needling.  I will let you know what each technique option provides for each complaint or examination finding; you will decide what is applied for your plan of care. 

Concerned about cost?

My business model allows me to provide my services at a price that is comparable to insurance co-payment for single visits. 

My quality and value would be maintained by providing my care with reduced overhead (smaller facility, less equipment, single staff).
