TRIGGER POINT DRY NEEDLING (TDN):

See our TDN brochure for more information
AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill gives you the opportunity to rehab from surgery or train through injury without pain, even while you are still recovering from surgery or injury. AlterG's unique unweighting technology reduces the impact of walking or running, while your body goes through the normal healing process. The first time you try the AlterG you won't believe how much fun it is to exercise at a lower body weight. People who have used the AlterG say it's like "running on air", and "it's so much more fun than normal running" and "you have to try it to believe it!" The AlterG can be used in a variety of ways and provide a broad range of benefits. The world's best athletes and teams use the AlterG to reduce the frequency of injuries, build fitness, and train and recover more quickly. They also use the AlterG as a core part of their athletic conditioning and training programs to strengthen and improve muscle coordination while minimizing stress on their bodies. You have to experience the AlterG to truly appreciate how amazing it is. To find out what it feels like to defy gravity and exercise like never before, try the AlterG at our Perkins Road location.
As we remain on the cutting edge of physical therapy practice, our therapists recently trained with the ASTYM System. The ASTYM System is a therapy approach that addresses problems such as scarring, fibrosis and degeneration that occur in soft tissues. These problems may develop as the result of trauma, surgery, or overuse. The System is effective for new injuries as well as chronic, nagging conditions. The ASTYM System uses instruments along the surface of the skin to locate these problem areas and stimulate the body’s healing process. As the body heals, exercise and activity help guide the healing which allows you to return to activities without pain and limitation. The success of the ASTYM System is documented for a wide variety of diagnoses and many times it helps patients where other treatments have failed. The therapists will customize a stretching and exercise program to assist you with your healing. Most patients see a significant change in their symptoms in the first 3-4 visits.

PEAK PERFORMANCE SPONSORED PROGRAMS:
SPECTRUM FITNESS & MEDICAL WELLNESS CENTERS:
" The preservation of health is much easier than the cure of disease"
In one of the most unique relationships in south Louisiana, the physical therapist owners of Peak Performance Physical Therapy also own the three Spectrum Fitness & Medical Wellness Centers. Two of the Spectrum Fitness sites house a Peak Performance clinic within the club providing a tremendous setting for both club members and Peak patients alike.
The Spectrum at 7069 Perkins Rd (at Kenilworth Blvd) is a 30,000 sq ft, full-service health club with a 2500 sq ft Peak clinic just inside.
Another Spectrum Club, located in Southdowns Village Shopping Center on Perkins Rd between College and Acadian, offers over 18,000 sq ft of premiere club space with an 'old school' feel.
Down I-12, jut off of the Denham Springs Range Ave exit, Spectrum boosts a new, completely renovated 20,000 sq ft full-service club with a huge outdoor pool and another 2300 sq ft Peak Performance clinic.
All of the Spectrum facilities have programs which are designed to merge, and blend, the areas of exercise, fitness training, and medical wellness. While continuing to offer the traditional high energy group classes, personal training, and state-of-the-art equipment, Spectrum Fitness & Medical Wellness also has space, equipment, and programming for individuals who may not be ‘regular’ exercisers and for those who are managing chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, obesity, chronic fatigue, and many other conditions that are positively impacted very significantly by exercise. The focus is on normalizing numbers such as blood pressure, body weight, body fat percentage, cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels. EXERCISE IS MEDICINE !
