What to expect when you come in:
– Thorough history intake and functional movement assessment
– Various Alignment Therapy treatments
– Movement re-education and postural efficacy training
– Progressive re-training plan to work on goals at home
Whatever your age or ability, let us help you create a body that can not only move, but move pain free for life!
Manual Therapy is one of the fastest growing and most effective strategies for pain, injury and recovery. Touch therapies include: osteopathic, manual treatment, neuro-muscular, structural integration, muscle activation, positional release, and active stretching. These have proven to work on relieving chronic and acute pain in patients. People with back pain, neck pain and other neurogenic and neuro-muscular issues have seen a significant improvement after receiving Physiokinetix Therapy (PKT).
As the region’s premier center for helping clients with mobility, injury, preventive health and training, the Temple Human Performance offers a unique combination of assessment, treatment, training and repeat evaluation to keep our clients functioning and moving. Physiokinetix can help with head pain, radiating neck pain, neck stiffness, rotator cuff injuries, carpal tunnel, scoliosis, lumbago, sciatica, and visceral problems, among other body issues. By receiving PKT, you can increase your flexibility, improve your posture, and decrease pain throughout your body.
The reason why PKT works better than other forms of therapy is because it breaks the pain cycles and spasms by combining muscle balancing routines with unique joint-capsule maneuvers. Our team of PKT therapists, led by industry leader Paul Kelly, moves clients through a series of interventions that make the transition from illness to wellness. We help improve the quality of life for many types of clients including active adults, fitness enthusiasts (Tri-Athletes, Runners, Cyclists, Cross-Trainers), high-school athletes, pro-athletes, and those impacted by injury (acute or chronic).

Integrative Massage For chronic pain and repetitive Strain Injuries
The pain cycle is a complex chain of events which reinforce each other:
Muscle tension/pressure on nerves/stress/restricted movement/reduced circulation/Trigger points and/or irritating waste/muscle shortening.
Integrative Massage Utilizes a system of working specific areas to relieve soft tissue discomfort. The use of compression or friction strokes combined with strokes to lengthen muscle and connective tissue, deep sustained pressure, and general relaxation strokes are utilized to promote circulation, aid recovery, and disrupt the pain/spasm cycle.
Hot Stone Hot Stone is an integrative therapy approach that uses the stones to increase circulation to certain tight facilitated muscles. It also adds a grounding effect as well as sympathetic nervous system release
