Comprehensive Treatment Services at ShechterCare®

Understanding Your Personalized Treatment Approach

Each treatment session at ShechterCare® is uniquely tailored to your needs. We guarantee that every session will include comprehensive manual therapy such as soft tissue work, scar massage, and lymphatic drainage. We prioritize understanding what bothers you the most and use various therapeutic tools to address these concerns.

Pre-Session Preparation

For optimal results, we may ask patients to arrive early to use the visor pneumatic pump. This pre-treatment step helps soften the tissue, allowing for more effective manual therapy during your session.

Personalized Rehabilitation Programs

Our Comprehensive Therapy Techniques

  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage: We employ gentle techniques to facilitate fluid movement and reduce limb heaviness. 

  • Exercise Integration: Each session incorporates exercise, starting with stretching to improve mobility, followed by strengthening exercises.

  • Additional Modalities: Our treatments may include cold low-level laser, Hiva mat, pneumatic compression, and more.

  • Individualized Care: As a small practice, we reassess your needs each session, ensuring personalized care.

Addressing Upper Extremity Lymphedema

Our bandaging technique for lymphedema does not hinder the functional use of your arm. We focus on maintaining as much comfort and mobility as possible while effectively reducing swelling and fluid retention.

Evolving Treatment as You Heal

The use of pre-therapy modalities, like moist heat or vaso pneumatic pumps, will adapt as your tissue heals and your body recovers. This approach is followed by extensive manual therapy, tailored to your specific needs.
