Acupuncture Physical Therapy is a unique approach to treating pain, including neck and back injuries, sports injuries and stress-related diseases. Merging traditional Oriental Acupuncture practice with evidenced-based, modern medicine technique of dry trigger point needling, Acupuncture Physical Therapy treatments can be a viable means of healing, pain management and prevention. Combining acupuncture theory with the physical therapy approach of releasing myofascial trigger points (sometimes felt as "knots") and stress holding patterns allows Acupuncture Physical Therapy to address problems that are not responsive to other more common interventions such as medications, chiropractic or traditional physical therapy.
Dr. Pertes has completed advanced course work in the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction, utilizing the osteopathic approaches - including CranioSacral therapy- to restore movement and function to the joint, muscle, nerve and surrounding soft tissue. Acupuncture energetics and "trigger point release needling" are added to this framework to offer a comprehensive treatment approach.
