Elite PT News
Congratulations to our Baltimore based Partner Caroline Queale, MPT and Wilmington based PT Erin Igo, DPT for successfully completing their Level 2 Certification in Functional Dry Needling.
Functional Dry Needling is a hands-on physical therapy approach to treat Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction. A variety of manual techniques are used during the physical therapy treatments to inactivate myofascial trigger points, and to restore normal muscle tone, muscle length, coordination, function and strength.
With this level of certification, both Caroline and Erin are now experienced and skilled to cover musculature in more technical areas including that of the thoracic spine and trunk, lumbar spine, cervical spine, hip, hand, foot, upper extremity, temporomandibular joint, and connective tissues.
We are proud to say that we are the only practice in the state (perhaps the region) to have Physical Therapists in each of our locations trained in this valuable skill.
Nicole from our Rehoboth location, had the opportunity to spend a week this past month with the US U-18 Women’s Soccer Team at the Chula Vista Elite Training Center in California. She was responsible for the well-being of the team, which included setting up water and ice, performing treatments and taping before practices, and attending to any of the athletes that were injured during practice. After training she held additional treatment sessions, ice baths and recovery stretching and foam rolling. In addition to double session practices, they played one inter squad scrimmage, a local club team and USC at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA. Gratefully, the girls stayed healthy through the week and they only had minor aches and pains that come with doing double sessions!
Nicole’s aspirations of working with the National Team developed early when Hash worked with my soccer team to do injury prevention when I was in middle school. Currently and during this time, he was working as an Athletic Trainer for the Men’s National Team, which inspired my career choice. While watching the 1999 Women’s World Cup, I dreamt of playing for and then working as the Physical Therapist for the National Team.
Nicole was thrilled to work with this great group of girls who are phenomenal athletes and great people. Having the opportunity to treat and work on this caliber of athletes has always been a dream of hers. Nicole hopes to have the opportunity to work with these girls again soon at the World Cup!
Elite PT has a new addition! Elite PT in Rehoboth Beach has a brand new Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill. With a front row view of the ocean, is there a better spot to get yourself back to walking or running at full capacity? The Atler G is a treadmill that supports your body weight allowing you to begin exercising without stress on the injury.
Elite PT has worked with the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation at their Annual 5K and through selling TShirts and Pint glasses at their clinics. In April, Wilmington Elite PT donated all the money raised from Erin's baby arrival pool to B+. Please join us on June 21st at this years Annual 5K!
