Pain Relief by Specialized Therapists

At Lake Region Therapy Services, our primary tool in treatment of pain is a therapeutic technique called Myofascial Release or MFR.  MFR is a gentle hands on technique directed at fascial restrictions to eliminate pain and to restore motion.

Fascia is a tough connective tissue that is spread throughout the body.  In its normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration.  It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction.  When fascia loses its flexibility, it becomes a source of tension and chronic pain. 

Injury such as a fall, whiplash, surgery or the lack of normal motion that often accompanies arthritic conditions has a cumulative effect.  Tightened fascia can exert pressure that produces pain and headaches leading to further loss of normal movement causing more pain.  This “vicious cycle” is often the source of chronic pain for which medication provides only temporary relief.

Standard tests such as x-rays, CAT scans, electromyography, etc., do not show the fascial restrictions.  It is thought that a high percentage of people suffering with pain, headaches, and or lack of mobility may be having fascial problems but many go undiagnosed. 

MFR is not chiropractic and it’s not massage.  As practiced at Lake Region Therapy Services, MFR is a comprehensive treatment that returns the fascia to its natural state allowing your body to heal.  Gentle exercises speed your recovery and help to make the process a solution to your pain rather than just a treatment for it.

Post Offer of Employment Testing (POET):

Lake Region Therapy Services utilizes BTE's POET Program and Isernhagen's Pre-Work Screens to assist employers in reducing injuries on the job by improving the screening process for new hires.  Developed specifically for each employer and their jobs, Isernhagen and BTE’s POET program has consistently delivered substantial savings to clients across industries.

Functional Capacity Evaluation:

BTE's Complete FCE Reliably Measures and Documents Function

Lake Region Therapy Services utilizes bothBTE’s EvalTech™/ER™ functional demand assessment technology and their proprietary FCE process. Initiated early in the lost time claim, the FCE can establish and document the residual capacity of the employee post injury and compare the post injury function to the physical demand requirements of the job. In addition, the FCE detail can be used to identify and target specific physiological deficit areas, which can be beneficial to the treating provider on medical treatment direction and intervention. The FCE plays a critical role in the case and claims management of individuals who have time away from work or require documentation of residual function.

 

Ergonomics/Work Station Analysis:

We spend approximately thirty minutes per person going over all the risk factors of their work site.  In addition, we provide tips, exercises and training on ergonomics as it applies to you.  Lastly, we make corrections on the spot to the workstation and document those changes that we are unable to make but recommend.  At completion, each employee is SMARTER, working SAFER and the corporate goal of an INJURY FREE workplace is well established.

Treatment of Lymphedema

Lake Region Therapy Services is one of the very few facilities in our community that offers specialized lymphedema treatment by Certified Lymphatic Therapists.

Lymphedema is a swelling of a body part, most often the extremities. It may also occur in the face, the trunk and the abdomen. Lymphedema is a result of an accumulation of protein-rich fluid in superficial tissues, which can have significant pathological and clinical consequences for the patient if it goes untreated.

 

Early stages of lymphedema may be temporarily reduced by simple elevation of the limb. Without proper treatment, however, the protein-rich swelling causes a progressive hardening of the affected tissues, along with recurrent cellulitis, and possibly fungal infection.

Lake Region Therapy Services offers a range of treatment methods to our lymphedema patients, including:

·         Manual Lymph Drainage

·         Compression Therapy

·         Decongestive Remedial Exercises

·         Wound Care & Skin Care

·         Education To The Patient And Family On How To Care For Affected Limbs
