OC Sports & Rehab


OC Sports & Rehab is THE Gold Standard for Physical Therapy Services and Clinics

This week on our blog, we’d like to go into greater detail about the specific modalities we offer at each and every one of our locations. We utilize a wide range of tools and equipment to enhance your rehabilitation and get you back to feeling your best as quickly and as effectively as possible!

In our clinics, we utilize advanced electrical stimulation units with several different modes, tailored to your specific injury’s needs. Instead of just a hot pack, we also use moist hot packs that allow for deeper penetration within the tissue. In conjunction with each other, they create a more therapeutic effect to relax and loosen up the muscles before our therapists work on them. We also kick ice therapy up a notch by utilizing the Game Ready ice-compression system. When used at the first sign of an acute injury, such as a severe ankle sprain, the Game Ready uses compression therapy to keep swelling down and ice-cold temperatures to help alleviate pain.

We take manual therapy above and beyond by implementing the use of a DMS, a deep muscle stimulator. This jack-hammer-like piece of equipment is a percussive instrument that is used to massage and alleviate tight or sore muscles. Our patients love it! The DMS is the top of line; much more effective than a Hyper-volt or Theragun, and exponentially better than a therapists hands alone. Each and every one of our treating providers is also expertly trained in how to provide active release techniques, or ART. This a much deeper, more intense form of manual therapy, and our providers do it best!

Another modality we use is low-level laser therapy, or LLT. Also known as “cold laser” therapy it is beneficial for many injuries and conditions, including post-operative incisions/scars, and inflammatory conditions such as plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis. LLLT works on the cellular and tissular level to improve would healing and reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling.

Perhaps our patients’ favorite modality are our pneumatic compression devices. These devices are used for promoting better circulation, decreasing swelling, moving fluid out of the extremities, or to simply unwind after a long workout at the gym. We have pieces for the legs, the abdomen, the groin, and the arms, so we can do compression therapy on pretty much any part of the body! Effective for so many conditions and populations, it’s no wonder why so many people call it their favorite part of their treatment.

In short, OC Sports & Rehab is THE gold standard for physical therapy services and clinics. We provide the most comprehensive, cutting edge, state of the art modalities and equipment to our patients. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment at our Foothill Ranch Phsyical Therapy or Lake Forest Physical Therapy locations and see our modalities in action!
