Massages soothe muscles sore from naps in uncomfortable chairs and long nights of aggressive rapid eye movement. Recover from relaxing with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a 50-minute therapeutic massage with an ETPS treatment at Solex Physical Therapy & Wellness Center, located in the Plaza Walk Center (an $85 value).
The professional staff at Solex soothe away chronic aches and pains with specialized massages and electro-therapeutic-point-stimulation (ETPS) treatments. Inside the crisp medical facility, therapists check clients’ muscles for tenderness caused by injury, arthritis, or using shoulders for snare drums in avante garde band performances. Practiced strokes pacify aches while a handheld ETPS device passes over afflicted tissues, zipping currents into bodily nodes to trigger a release of endorphins. The procedure emulates the pain-ousting effects of acupuncture without attracting stitched love notes from amorous pincushions, and can diminish pressure that had been plaguing nerve endings. After a single treatment, patients may notice relief in pain and discomfort, and further appointments can remedy symptoms from such ailments as migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, and carpal-tunnel syndrome.
Solex Physical Therapy & Wellness Center
While their services are highly sought after by athletes in search of custom fitness programs, the trainers and therapists at this 2,400-square-foot center specialize in treating musculoskeletal and neurological impairments ranging from tendinitis to Parkinson’s disease. Staffers and patients work together to modify lifestyles according to recovery needs, creating a rehabilitation program that helps clients regain movement and live lives with less discomfort. The team monitors patients’ progress with help from computerized strength-training equipment, creating illustrative graphs that allow results to be easily shared and interpreted by primary-care physicians, case managers, and employers. Outside of physical therapy, the facility also offers up its strength- and health-building resources to help clients build muscle tone, create healthy diets, or knead away muscle pain sustained while working as an undercover coat rack.
Solex also works tirelessly to ensure that their patients’ health isn’t compromised by a lack of resources. Those who have trouble making it to appointments can take advantage of the facility’s free transport service, and the multilingual staff ensures that services are kept accessible to speakers of English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian.
