For certain driving jobs like commercial truck driving, a DOT physical is necessary to ensure that you’re physically fit enough to operate the vehicle. Many people put off taking their DOT physical thinking that it will take too much time or that paperwork will be a hassle to complete. We provide quick physicals with a DOT Certified Medical Examiner so that you can get in and get back to your day. We also understand how important it is for a driver to maintain their commercial driver’s license, so you can trust us to be professional and knowledgeable about your needs as a commercial driver.
Dry Needling is used to relax your trigger points and reduce pain. Often referred to as ‘muscle knots’, trigger points are tight bands within the muscle that limit blood flow, restrict range of motion, and cause pain and tenderness. When Dry Needling is applied to a dysfunctional muscle, it can decrease banding, increase blood flow, and reduce pain. The conditions that it can especially help include back pain, upper and mid back tightness, chronic pain, frozen shoulder, TMJ, headaches, neuropathic pain, osteoarthritis, sciatica, tennis elbow, and Plantar Fasciitis. Dr. Amanda Franconi has received extensive training in trigger point Dry Needling, and she looks forward to helping you feel better.

Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints. Use of specific exercises are used to correct deficiencies caused by trauma, inactivity, muscular imbalances, poor flexibility or biomechanical inadequacies.
This comprehensive and consistent approach works to retrain muscles, restore joint function and prevent recurring injuries as well as doctor visits. When corrective exercises become necessary, they help maintain proper posture, improve lifting mechanics while helping to determine the “Do’s and Don’ts” related to certain jobs or daily activities. The effectiveness of the treatment protocol depends on the patient’s commitment to their therapeutic exercises and doctor’s recommendations.
