Revolutionize Your Recovery with Our Groundbreaking Physical Therapy Services

Discover a broad spectrum of innovative physical therapy services at Primal Physical Therapy, each designed to help you reclaim your strength, mobility, and life.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a specialized technique that targets muscle tension and spasms. By inserting thin needles into trigger points, our skilled therapists can alleviate shoulder and neck pain, improve flexibility, and enhance performance. It's a unique treatment method with far-reaching benefits.

Running Gait Analysis

Our running gait analysis can be a game-changer for the runners among us. This detailed assessment examines your running style, identifying areas for improvement to boost efficiency and reduce injury risk. Whether you're a seasoned runner or just starting, optimizing your gait can unlock a new level of performance.

Movement Analysis

Understanding how you move is key to functional rehabilitation. Our movement analysis involves a comprehensive assessment of your movement patterns, identifying potential issues that may lead to injury or hinder performance. Armed with this knowledge, we can craft a therapy plan that's uniquely tailored to you.

Blood Flow Restriction

A revolutionary treatment technique, blood flow restriction therapy involves applying a specialized cuff to the targeted body part. By carefully controlling the blood flow, we can stimulate muscle growth and expedite recovery, even with lighter exercises.

State-of-the-Art Laser Therapy

Laser therapy uses the power of light to accelerate the body's natural healing processes. This non-invasive treatment modality stimulates cellular activity, promoting cell growth and reproduction essential in healing soft tissue injuries. Additionally, laser therapy has proven effective for the following: 

  • Sprains and strains
  • Tendinitis
  • Tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
