Advanced Physical Therapy Treatments
- Nervous System Rehabilitation
- The better your nerves communicates, the better your body functions resulting in faster recovery times from injury.
- We evaluating nerve functions without needles and rehabilitating them much the same way that we rehabilitate muscles. These neurological re-education techniques allow us to improve the quality of the information being sent along the entire path of the nervous system.
- We manually test each muscle-nerve connection for weakness and deficits.
- We also test the sensory receptors such as pain, tingling, numbness and proprioception.
- After we have found the problem areas, we then re-educate the body by stimulating acupressure points and using other modalities such as infrared light therapy and vibration therapy. Infrared Light therapy is FDA approved, safe, and painless and affects nerve healing and vibration increases the neuromuscular stimulus. MIT has shown how light therapy can profoundly accelerate one’s health more quickly.
- Recover faster & eliminate pain by enhancing neurological signaling of the body.

Total Body Alignment™
- Exclusive to the Mantione Center
- A one of a kind head to feet total body alignment with shocking results.
- A missing link to why many individuals have not eliminated their pain and/or healed their injuries from other practitioners and treatments.
- If you are not getting better, your body is may not be properly aligned
- The body must be aligned first to improve the functional movements of the body, not the other way around.
- These misalignments of the body contribute to the faulty movement patterns we see in everyone with pain and injury, including all athletes from every sport.
- Physics doesn’t lie and the body is a pulley system made up of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia.
- We look for the structural misalignments that are causing imbalances in the bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and energy of the body.
- We then realign the leg length, pelvis, spine, ribs, neck, jaw, shoulders, shoulder blades, elbows, wrists, knees, hips, ankles and feet all very gently with manipulation or without manipulation using osteopathic muscle energy techniques depending on the person’s preference and comfort level.
- Next we re-educate the neurological system so the body recognizes what was just corrected and integrate specific functional movements to re-educate and reinforce the new alignment so the body knows where it is supposed to be
- The body is made up levers and pulley systems
- This treatment allows the body to be in the best possible position to heal itself
- For example: most individuals have one leg longer than the other which is a “detective clue” that there is an imbalance in the spine, pelvis, sacrum or elsewhere and most need to be corrected to maintain an injury-free state followed up with an advanced therapeutic exercise program and advanced self-help tools to support your alignment.
- Proper alignment allows the bones to support the body and takes the strain off the already tight and imbalanced muscles
- oor alignment causes dysfunction of the body
- Incorporating gentle, slow, rhythmic movements to reverse nerve tension most often in the nerves from the neck into the arms and spine into the legs
- A highly skilled technique that requires precision
- Lacking good capsular mobility in the shoulder, elbows, hips, spine, ankles and feet can prevent you from full recovery
- Contributes to pain and injury and poor flexibility
- xample: If you have poor joint mobility in your hips then the surrounding muscles of the hips will be tight
Active Trigger Point Release
- Releasing the “knots” in your muscles so they function properly
- These trigger points can disrupt proper biomechanics, cause pain and refer pain to other parts of the body
- The root of your pain is usually above or below the area that hurts.
- A safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle pressure into the connective tissue restrictions
- Eliminates pain and restores motion.
- Using different types and techniques of taping to support joints, improve functional movements, unload pain and prevent injuries in life and in sport.
- McConnell taping
- Athletic training taping
Advanced Therapeutic Exercise
- Unique functional and strengthening movements to reinforce the body imbalances that were corrected
- All individuals will receive a customized exercise program to increase and maintain strength, function, and flexibility and reinforce the corrections we worked so hard to attain.
Gentle Osteopathic Manipulation
- Gentle hands-on manipulation to re-align the leg length, pelvis, spine, ribs, neck, jaw, shoulders, shoulder blades, elbows, wrists, knees, hips, ankles and feet
- Gently re-align the leg length, pelvis, spine, ribs, neck, jaw, shoulders, shoulder blades, elbows, wrists, knees, hips, ankles and feet body and cranial bones without manipulation, without “cracking” using osteopathic muscle energy principles
Applied Kinesiology (AK)
- Advanced manual muscle testing used to help the practitioner determine the root of your pain, injury and stress in the body and energetic field. AK is used throughout the world and combined with conventional methods of diagnosis. AK is one of the most effective healing arts.
Emotional Freedom Techniques
- Restore your mind-body connection
- We can store life’s emotional stresses inside our pain and injuries
- Releasing these emotions can accelerate your healing and improve the quality of your life, and enhance athletic performance.
- Tendon & ligament power: The missing link to performance & rehabilitation
- Increase recovery times
- Injury prevention and wellness
- Brain stress and fatigue
- Support pain relief
Injury-Free Exercise and Weight Training Modifications Around Pain and Injury
- Many of the practices of exercise, weight training, sports conditioning and rehabilitation are mediocre and standardized. This is due to poor application of existing knowledge, the use of outdated information, and the failure to seek out innovative solutions. Learn how to injury proof your workouts!
