Many of my patients who seemed to have little improvement have benefited from this treatment which allowed them to continue working with less pain. I highly recommend Dr. Sadowski and his team for the Graston technique.

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture
We can provide certified Contemporary Medical Acupuncture treatments - also known as Neurofunctional Acupuncture. By stimulating the nervous system in a very precise and deliberate way, this acupuncture can efficiently clear many neurological barriers to physical therapy success. We can deliberately up-regulate or down-regulate the nervous system, endocrine system, exocrine system, and immune systems. more info...
Our therapists use a special technique called Kinesio Taping to provide protection for muscles and joints in a way that actually improves circulation. Kinesio Taping facilitates healing and recovery by allowing damaged joints to move within healthy ranges of motion, by enhancing neurological feedback, and by creating a pumping effect for local circulation. Typically not a standalone therapy, this technique enhances several physical therapy
treatments to create faster pain relief, more efficient therapeutic results, and more satisfied clients. more info...
We teach our patients special "blueprint"
physical therapy exercises designed just for them to help strengthen
and correct their own unique problem. These exercises
can be performed in the comfort of your own home
and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal
correction by as much as 30-40%.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our
patients on certain activities they should avoid
or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular
health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient
achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of
the activities they enjoy most.

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important

of employment in and around both Enfield and Suffield, Connecticut
