JNP Physical Therapy Services
How We Can Help
At JNP Physical Therapy, we hear your story and take a detailed note of your medical history. From there we create an individualized treatment plan aimed at achieving the functional goals we set together.
Our approach at JNP Physical Therapy is to treat the whole body, not just an isolated injury. We offer a variety of personalized, one-on-one treatments to ensure our patients’ long-term health and wellness.
We tailor our services to meet your individual needs. Get in touch with us to find out more.
Physical Therapy Evaluation (First time)
60 minute first session that covers the history of the patient, your injury(s), testing of the site and surrounding structures to determine what the issue is, assessment of this session to create a comprehensive and individualize plan, initial intervention with manual techniques and appropriate corrective exercises to start healing process, decrease pain and create a Home Exercise Program (HEP) for client to do on days they aren't in therapy.
Physical Therapy Treatment Session
55-60 minute session of Therapy has an emphasis on helping you achieve improvement in basic daily activities, movement in and out of home,recreational activities and, community activities. Use of manual therapy techniques: soft tissue massage/mobilization/joint mobilization, dry needling (if appropriate), use of hypervolt (when appropriate), cupping active trigger point release; self and manual stretching, therapeutic/corrective exercises, balance, gait and posture training etc.
After Physical Therapy has been completed
45-60 min depending on Package.
Maintain progress safely
Continue over a series of weeks to advance program (HEP)
Flare up/Recovery session
Return to sport training
Dry needling is a PT technique that can be part of manual therapy. It has been shown to be powerfully effective in decreasing muscle tension and tone (the muscle's resistance to passive stretching during a resting state) alleviating pain, nerve sensations due to compression of muscle on nerve and overall tightness. One way physical therapists treat trigger points is through dry needling a safe and effective technique using thin monofilament needles to penetrate skin to help treat muscular trigger points.
The addition of e-stim acts as an adjunct to enhance the treatment's pain-relieving effect. E-stim helps to stimulate blood flow and provide analgesic effects to help numb the pain, often providing long-term relief. This can improve a patient's range of motion and relieve pain.
Graston Technique is Instrument assisted soft tissue massage (IASTM)/manual therapy technique used to reduce a patient's pain and increase function through a combination of:
Breaking down the scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are usually associated with some form of trauma to the soft tissue (ie: a strained muscle, pulled ligament, tendon, or fascia).
Reducing restrictions by stretching connective tissue in an attempt to rearrange the structure of the soft tissue being treated.
Promoting a better healing environment for the injured soft tissue.
There also appears to be a neurologic benefit to treating patients, the literature suggests that when someone’s is given manual or IASTM therapy, certain nerve fibers are activated.
We use the Graston Technique frequently for all ages and types of patients to improve the function of various joints and muscles, increase the rate of healing, decreasing scar tissue and pain, and improve overall function and performance. By using this technique in conjunction with all of our other services, we can drastically improve the patient’s healing and recovery time and return them back to their prior level of function at a much rapid rate.
A therapeutic taping technique which alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin increasing interstitial space and allowing for decreased inflammation in affected areas. It has been proven to have positive physiological effects on the skin, lymphatic and circulatory system, fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. It can be used in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments and modalities within your clinic and is effective during the rehabilitative and chronic phases on an injury as well as being used for preventative measures.
Scar Tissue Mobilization
The goal of scar tissue mobilization is to help organize the tissue by using the body’s own healing process to aide in the re-alignment of tissue fibers to be more in line with the tissue pull and stretch in and around the scar region.
Your body continues to re-organize scars throughout your lifetime, with the most remodeling done in the first 3 months, then 6 months, and finally the ending of first year.
Types of scar tissue mobilization with and without instrument assist
Parallel scar mobilization
Circle scar mobilization

Deep Tissue laser therapy: Class IV laser
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process with in the cell called photobiomodulation (PBM). During PBM, the light interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation. This treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drug and surgery for pain relief.
Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free option for individuals suffering from both acute and chronic pain. Treatments are fast, safe, and painless. Most patients see results in 3 to 6 treatment sessions, and patients can expect notable pain relief, with the effects lasting longer after each treatment.
Laser therapy is clinically proven to reduce pain and inflammation associated with many common and wide array of musculoskeletal conditions. Laser therapy is endorsed by professional clinical organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO), American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), and the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP®) with over 3,000 research studies having been conducted in the field.
