Advanced Physical Therapy Center’s Concussion Management Program offers a simple baseline test, concussion assessment and training program using the Biodex Balance System SD and the ImPACT Program. The Biodex Balance System SD is a sophisticated measuring and training device for static and dynamic balance testing and training. It is used by leading hospitals, rehabilitation centers and national sports teams throughout the U.S. The Biodex Balance System SD is designed to systematically test the sensory selection process by compromising available somatosensory, visual, and vestibular senses while measuring an athlete’s ability to minimize postural sway. Biodex has software that includes the option of conducting a modified version of a Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) test of postural stability, popular for concussion management.
Functional Dry Needling is a mechanical-device assisted manual therapy technique within the scope of physical therapy practice. It is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. It is used in conjunction with traditional physical therapy.
The needles used are typically much smaller than hypodermic needles, and are solid rather than hollow, with a rounded rather than a beveled tip with the cutting edge of a hypodermic needle. Dry Needling is different than acupuncture with regards to the evaluation tools used, the assessment, the application, and the overall intended goal. The treatment protocols are based on Dr. Levitt’s work in orthopedics. Attached please find 2 case reports on dry needling in the cervical spine, and the hamstring, both published in The Journal of Sports and Orthopedic Physical Therapy.

Kinesiology tape helps relieve pain by lifting the skin, allowing blood to flow more freely to the injured area. Faster blood flow means more oxygen and more lymph drainage. This, in turn, helps to remove lactic acid. Not only does kinesiology taping increase circulation, but it also reduces muscle fatigue. It is extremely strong and flexible and is, usually, made from 100% cotton, making it latex free, which is good for those with allergies or sensitive skin. The tape is applied in a specific pattern and is either stretched or not stretched, depending on the injury. Kinesiology tape can last anywhere from two to five days. It can be worn swimming or in the shower, and it resists perspiration well.
