Empowered

By | Raves | No Comments

I now feel like I actually know why my back has been hurting me for the past ten years, and I know what to do about it. I greatly appreciated how she took the time to show me strengthening exercises and stretches so that I won’t have to get adjustments as frequently. After my visit with Dr. Lelke, I feel empowered to make some changes in my daily habits that will affect my back as well as my general health.

Back-to-Hiking Knees

By | Raves | No Comments

My knees have always bothered me, but Dr. Lelke assured me that my activity level did not have to suffer from my pain. She confidently assessed me, taught me much about my body and movement, and gave me a range of treatments, from massage to realigning my hips and an adjustment that completely released all the tension build-up in my back. After years of feeling like “I’ll just have to learn to live with pain,” Johanna proved I can still do the hiking and exploring I love. She truly understands the athlete’s body and how to fix it.

Kinesio® Taping

By | Arrive | No Comments

For more than twenty-five years, Kinesio® taping, created by Dr. Kenzo Kase to mimic  the feel and elasticity of skin, has been facilitating natural healing processes by stabilizing muscles and joints without restricting motion. Rather than immobilizing joints like traditional sports tape, Kinesio® tape secures the surrounding muscle by microscopically lifting the skin, promoting circulation while re-educating the neuromuscular system and discouraging further damage. As a certified practitioner, Dr. Lelke was featured in an October 2009 Triathlete article about Kinesio® taping’s relevance to sports performance, pain management and physical therapy.

Rehabilitation Exercises

Linking office and home care with prescribed exercises reduces recovery time and costs while strengthening the body to avoid repeated issues. As part of your treatment, Dr. Lelke will teach you simple movements that you can practice on your own, from ball or foam rolling to yoga poses to balance, stability and strengthening tactics, cultivating proper posture and correction of strain.

Electric Stimulation

Called “muscle stim” among physical therapists, electric stimulation is achieved by activating a light current through electrodes set on the skin. Directly provoking contraction relaxes muscles in spasm and spikes endorphins, lessening pain.
