We utilize a wide variety of evidence based-techniques including corrective exercise, joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, and other supportive modalities to both guide and expedite our patients through the recovery process.
Typically, an initial diagnosis is provided, and then your physical therapist will work with you throughout your recovery to help restore your motion.
Those seeking physical therapy may be doing so due to injury, disability, disease, or condition… but no matter what your reason for pursuing physical therapy, you should know that your physical therapist is a highly trained professional who will work with you to help you recover.
- Physical exam/evaluation, health history, and a few other tests for movement and flexibility
- Receive a diagnosis, prognosis, and next steps
- A physical therapy treatment that will depend on your diagnosis (this may be anything from massage, heat, or cold therapy, warm water therapy, or ultrasound to ease muscle pain or spasms)
- “Homework” which is part of your physical therapy treatment
Physical therapy can benefit anyone in terms of pain management, general strength, conditioning, and can even improve athletic ability.
- Better pain management
- Improvements to mobility/movement
- Recovery from injury
- Recovery from stroke or paralysis
- Preventing slips and falls (improved balance)
- Avoiding or being better prepared for surgery
- Strength and conditioning
- Improved athletic ability
- Reduction of age-related ailments
- Management of other conditions
For example, you’ll likely learn that the spot that hurts is rarely the source of the pain and in reality, the issue may be somewhere else along your biomechanical chain.
Attending physical therapy, while 100% necessary for some conditions, is simply an option for others. If physical therapy is included in your health benefits or you are able to afford to see a physical therapist on a regular basis, it is highly recommended to help improve your quality of life through recovery and strength!
We are 100% committed to helping our patients Move Better | Work Better | Live Better
