Treatments provided at Keller Athletic Therapy involve an in-depth and thorough Initial Assessment to begin with, followed by a variety of manual therapy techniques such as Myofascial Trigger Point Release, Massage, Soft Tissue Release, Joint Mobilizations, Muscle Energy and Myofascial Release, as well as CranioSacral Therapy Techniques.
The use of therapeutic modalities such as Ultrasound, Transelectrical Neuromuscular Stimulation (TENS), Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES), and Acustim (which is similar to Acupuncture) are also part of the treatment protocol depending on the patient's needs and stages of rehabilitation.
Patients will be educated on prevention of re-injury, and their rehabilitation process will involve a series of progressional exercises that will focus on improving their flexibility, correcting muscle imbalances and the strengthening needed for a safe and effective "Return To Play".

Muscle Energy (LL Consultants)
Developed by Osteopathic Doctor Fred Mitchell, Muscle Energy is defined as a “manual therapy that requires muscular contribution of the patient”. The therapist uses a method called “reciprocal inhibition” which is a theory that describes muscle relaxation through the activation of the golgi tendon reflex. It is said to help relieve pain, lengthen connective tissue, loosen adhesions, decrease edema, and increase joint range of motion.
