Having optimal balance and stability is an essential component of movement that must be maintained as we age. Falls are one of the main causes of injury in older adults. Those who already have existing physical comorbidities, past injuries, or a history of falls are at an even higher risk for serious complications, and even fatality after a fall.
Our team at ProMet can help you master skills in order to decrease your risk of injury, while increasing your confidence in pursuing the activities you love!
IASTM Technique is a type of instrument-assisted, soft tissue mobilization that is designed to aid in the healing response from the body to the affected area. This is accomplished through breakdown of the capillary beds inducing nutrition to the tissues of the injured area.
What can you notice?
We have used IASTM on strains and sprains, arthritic joints, chronically painful tissues, post operative areas, and myofascial dysfunction- just to name a few. Side effects of the treatment may include mild bruising along the lines of treatment, and delayed onset muscle soreness, although completely normal! Often times, the patients describe a general warming feeling, or even some tingling in the treated areas for up to 24 hours.
Therapeutic cupping is a form of alternative medicine dating back to ancient Egyptian, Asian, and European cultures. Treatment consists of cups placed on the skin wherein negative air pressure creates a suction force.
Cupping is used for a variety of purposes:
The suction created by cupping therapy can also be used to:
By lifting the skin from the muscle, the cupping action facilitates improved tissue extensibility, decreases pain perception, and allows more efficient movement patterns.

Kinesio Tape® (other brand names we also use include Rock Tape®, KT Tape® and Strength Tape®) are elastic tapes that supplement the body’s natural healing process. Traditional, white athletic tape limits movement, but Kinesio tape allows for full movement of the taped area and can help distribute forces to other nearby areas and the underlying tissues.
Posture is a reflection of the “position” of many bodily systems that are regulated, determined, and created through limited functional patterns. These patterns reflect our ability and inability to breathe, rotate, and rest symmetrically.
‘“Limited functional pattern” refers to movement that is restricted in directions, planes, or normal boundaries of functional range, as a result of improper joint, muscle, and mediastinum rest position. Function is therefore limited because soft tissue and osseous restrictions prevent one from using muscles and joints in their normal range. Adaptation and compensation for these limitations require neuromotor encoding and hyperactivity of muscle that is placed in improper positions.
