Physical Therapy Services
Physical therapists are movement experts who optimize quality of life through hands on manual therapy, patient education, prescribed exercises, and application of modalities. We teach patients how to prevent, manage, and optimize your current condition so that you will achieve long term benefits. We examine every individual and develop a plan of care using treatment techniques to address the biomechanical deficits, neuromuscular dysfunctions, and motor control limitations to promote the ability to move, heal, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability. Additionally, we work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility BEFORE it occurs by developing fitness and wellness oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
These days, medical professionals are ultra-specialized, and physical therapists are no exception to this trend. Orthopedic physical therapy focuses on treating conditions affecting the neuro-musculoskeletal system, which is made up of your joints, muscles, fascia, bones, ligaments, nerves, and tendons. Orthopedic injuries and conditions may include fractures, muscle strains, ligament sprains, pre and post-operative conditions, tendonitis, and bursitis. These injuries may cause pain, limited functional mobility, and loss of strength or range of motion. These impairments may prevent you from enjoying your normal work or recreational activities. The focus of orthopedic physical therapy is to help your injury heal properly and improve your strength, range of motion, and overall functional mobility. While your PT may use various instruments and tools to help you move better and get better, exercise is often your main tool to help you recover fully and prevent future orthopedic problems. Exercises in orthopedic physical therapy often involve strengthening, stretching, ROM, balance, endurance, plyometric, and motor control exercises.
If you have been living with some type of GI dysfunction, you may benefit from Visceral mobilization treatment. Visceral mobilization assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive, and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments. Visceral mobilization increases proprioceptive communication within the body, thereby, revitalizing a person and relieving symptoms of pain, dysfunction, and poor posture.
