Trigger Point Dry Needling. Dry Needling is a specialized form of physical therapy that uses acupuncture type needles inserted through the skin and into the deeper tissues that are trigger points to pain. Not all medical or physical therapy professionals are trained to perform this technique; Summa has advanced certification in dry needling, and performs the treatment as part of a physical therapy referral.
Graston Technique®. This instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization technique is performed on the injured and surrounding tissues, and is combined with stretching and strengthening to fully treat the injury.

Multi Radiance Super Pulsed Laser. The Multi Radiance Super Pulsed Laser is a non-invasive technology used to help reduce acute and chronic pain, improve blood flow, reduce inflammation and increase mobility leading to an improved quality of life.

After an evaluation by the physical or occupational therapist, a treatment plan is developed for your condition and may include the Multi Radiance Super Pulsed Laser so you can spend more time in the game and less time in recovery.
