Manual Therapy & Rehabilitation
Manual Therapy is our claim to fame. Unique, cutting edge manual therapy techniques allow our staff to gain better results than other more conventional treatment strategies offered by other physical therapy clinics or chiropractic clinics. We do not use passive treatment such as alternating current electrical stimulation, ultrasound or ice packs.
After a comprehensive evaluation examining your health history, symptoms and lifestyle, our therapists help you create a goal for recovery beyond just relieving the pain. Rehabilitation is tailored around your specific, self-defined wellness goals with all diagnosis whether plantar fasciitis, chronic back pain or shoulder impingement. Goals could include climbing Mt. Rainier for the first time or simply improve your fitness to care for your grandchildren with greater vitality and ease. A & C P.T. is not just a recovery center, we are a springboard for new successes.
Treatment & Performance
The Neufit Neubie is arguably THE most highly advanced and effective electronic stimulation devices in existence, and we are the ONLY CLINIC IN WASHINGTON to offer both Neufit and NeuPTTech certified care.
Think of the Neubie as an eraser of pain. Using direct current, not alteration current like TENS units, the Neubie talks directly with your nervous syetem to reprogram your brain, like a software update to remove the bugs.
Believe it or not, the Neubie uses the exact same frequency of electricity as your nervous system to communicate with your muscles. Each physical therapist using the Neubie at our clinic can literally override the inappropriate signals sent by your nervous system - including the electrical input controlling your muscles with activity and posture. By eliminating the incorrect input to your muscles the Neubie can change the output. In this case the output is expressed by a reduction in pain! As a secondary benefit, depending on the setting, the Neubie can help with digestion and general relaxation. Believe it our not, our expert clinicians have even used the NeuFit Neubie to successfully improved mobility for stroke patients and eliminate neuropathy from chemo therapy during cancer care! For many patients, their pain goes away while using the Neufit Neubie. Often patients leave our clinic pain free. Talk with us to find out if the Neubie can help you.
