Campbell Hall, N.Y. (February 27, 2018)—Access Physical Therapy & Wellness, Hudson Valley’s fastest growing physical, occupational and speech therapy group, is proud to announce the integration of the Whelton Myofascial Referral Technique to its service offerings.

The Whelton Myofascial Referral Technique uses specific points on the body that are stimulated with exact patient positioning and exact angles of pressure. With this technique, it allows physical therapists to stimulate these referral points to instantly relieve pain, increase range of motion, and decrease muscle spasm. In some cases, it also expedites the healing rate.

“Ryan Whelton, the inventor of the Whelton Myofascial Referral Technique, has done something pretty remarkable,” said Dr. Tracy Urvater, PT, DPT, OCS, owner of Access Physical Therapy & Wellness in Rockland. “He has created thousands of maps that attach referral points in other places of the body to the area of pain. By manipulating these referral points, we can immediately alleviate pain for patients and speed up their recovery process.”

Access Physical Therapy & Wellness therapists that are now trained in this technique can utilize this treatment as a part of any treatment plan for any part of the body that experiences muscle pain and difficulties with movement and function.

“Some of our patients volunteered to come and test out this treatment and were amazed at the immediate reduction in pain and improved range of motion,” added Urvater. “We are really excited to be able to offer this treatment to our patients.”
