why kintsugi physical therapy and wellness
Kintsugi is built on the idea of strength and beauty in imperfection. When a ceramic object breaks, the kintsugi technique involves using gold dust and resin (or lacquer) to reattach the broken pieces. The resulting piece thus incorporates the unique cracks into its design, and the gold lines add to the beauty of the piece while strengthening it. This art form is seen to many as a metaphor for brokenness and healing—that embracing one’s brokenness and imperfections can create something unique, beautiful and strong.

ORTHOPEDIC MANUAL THERAPY
Orthopedic Manual Therapy encompasses hands-on techniques that are used to decrease pain and improve range-of-motion and flexibility. Both soft tissue and joint mobilization and manipulation are key components of manual therapy as they restore the efficient power of movement to joints and associated muscles as well as improve motor control.
PELVIC FLOOR CARE
We provide hands-on Manual Therapy treatment, Biofeedback, and Motor Control guidance for every phase of an individual’s life. Our specialized staff creates an individualized treatment program for pre/post natal care, pelvic, hip, and low back pain, incontinence, prolapses, diastasis recti, and more.
Vestibular therapy helps correct issues with vertigo, dizziness, imbalance/falls, spatial disorientation, vision disturbance, hearing changes and cognitive and/or psychological changes.
Massage therapy uses varying degrees of pressure to reduce pain, inflammation, stress and fatigue by eliminating toxins and releasing endorphins. It also enhances circulation, flexibility, sleep, and the immune system.
PILATES & YOGA
Pilates and yoga are great for dynamic spinal stabilization, which involves full body, multi-joint, multi-plane, and multi-positional exercises. It improves all facets of movement quality: strength, flexibility, coordination, precision, control, endurance, and breath.
SPORTS IMPROVEMENT & INJURY REDUCTION
The Kintsugi Physical Therapy team identifies an athlete’s weaknesses or imbalances and creates a unique plan to address it. This improves performance, reduces the potential of injury, and improves functional movement patterns.
GI DYSFUNCTION & NUTRITION
Visceral mobilization increases motility and communication within the body, thereby, revitalizing a person and relieving symptoms of bloating pain, dysfunction, and poor posture. Nutritional interventions help improve overall health outcomes and reduce inflammation.
WELLNESS & STRESS MANAGEMENT
Wellness is a multidimensional state of being describing the existence of positive health in an individual as exemplified by quality of life and a sense of wellbeing. Stress management services can help patients reduce stress and the symptoms it brings.
ERGONOMICS/JOB SITE ASSESSMENTS
Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job to the person, rather than requiring the person to conform to the physical job parameters. Ergonomics identifies strategies that help workers perform their jobs in the most efficient manner possible, with the least amount of strain on their bodies. Good ergonomics result in greater efficiency, improved productivity, and better health. We provide assessments and customized plans for both individuals and businesses.
(TMD) / JAW PAIN
This therapy restores the natural movement of your jaw and decreases pain. Our physical therapists will teach you special “low-load” exercises that don’t exert a lot of pressure on your TMJ. It strengthens the muscles of the jaw and restores a more natural, pain-free motion. Symptoms of TMJ include jaw pain, fatigue, difficulty opening your mouth to eat or talk, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), headache, popping sounds in the jaw, neck pain, and locking jaw.
Whether you are a high-performing cyclist, a weekend warrior, a bike commuter, or someone who just enjoys a weekend ride with your family and friends, getting a proper bike fit is essential to long term cycling health and performance. We offer bike fit as a cash-pay option for those in the community who are looking to improve their cycling injury-prevention, efficiency, performance, or aerodynamics based on your unique athletic experience, health history, and morphology. A bike fit is a dynamic process, and we will offer recommendations on possible components, equipment, or clothing changes as you adapt to your goal position.
GOLF REHAB & FITNESS
Golf is an invigorating, highly enjoyable sport that can sometimes have serious physical repercussions if you don’t know how to properly move your body during play. Kintsugi Physical Therapy and Wellness offers a golf rehabilitation program that utilizes the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) assessment model. Golfers of all ages and skill levels can participate and will be assessed on their overall functional movement by going through a series of mobility and stability movements designed to grade, record, and analyze the body’s movement. The total picture of your body and swing are assessed to help optimize your personal performance and minimize pain and risk of future injury.
