Our focus is two-fold:
1. Find and then treat the underlying cause of your pain, immobility or weakness to ensure you the fastest and most effective recovery.
2. Facilitate your complete health and prevent re-injury with a post-therapy independent program.
Manual therapy is a hands on approach both to assess and treat restrictions in joint mobility and soft tissue extensibility. Manual therapy can also identify loose joints that require improved control through muscle stabilization exercises.
Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises targeted to improve your performance, strength, posture, balance, range of motion and function. These exercises are carefully prescribed and progressed to better challenge you during your healing process. This is a key component for your recovery and this exercise progression provides you with insight and education into how your body functions.
Core Stabilization Exercise
Core stabilization is the balanced development of the deep and superficial muscles that support and protect the spine, pelvis and shoulder girdle. With core stability exercise strengthening, we are better able to control movement, transfer energy and generate powerful movements of the trunk and extremities. This restores proper motion and reduces pain.
This specialized treatment evaluates and treats hand, wrist, and elbow complaints or conditions. Patients may receive both non-operative and post-operative care. Treatments may also include orthotic splinting for support. Click here to read more about hand therapy.
Orthotics are inserts that are designed to treat poor function of the foot such as plantar fasciitis, Bunion pain, Achilles tendonitis. At times orthotics are also needed to correct knee, hip and low back pain. Our therapists are trained to examine the foot and leg to determine the appropriate type of insert to fit your need.
Treatment of Balance Disorders
Balance is the result of several body systems working together; the eyes (visual system), the ears (vestibular system) and the body's sense of where it is in space (proprioception). We treat a variety of balance disorders including BPPV and acute labyrinthitis. We also provide balance and proprioceptive retraining for other chronic diseases, such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.
Graston Fascial Release
Graston Technique is an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables therapists to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Women's Health, Pregnancy Care and Pelvic Floor Rehab
Women's Health and pelvic floor rehab employs a non-surgical approach for restoring dysfunction in the pelvis and low back that contribute to bowel/bladder concerns, sexual health, and pelvic/hip/low back pain. Approaches include behavioral strategies, manual therapy, modalities, therapeutic exercise and patient education.
We also offer Ultrasound, phonophoresis, electrical stimulation, iontophoresis, TENS, mechanical spinal traction, heat and cold therapies.
Aquatic therapy is physical therapy performed in the water with supervision by a trained therapist. The weightlessness and pain-relieving compressive properties of buoyancy in water allow the body to exercise in a reduced gravity environment while improving strength, endurance, and mobility.
Pediatric physical therapists treat and examine children from birth to age 18 who have pain with movement, are delayed in gross motor milestones, or are having difficulty performing physical activity. Conditions that are treated may be related to genetic disease/illness, neurological disorders and/or orthopedic injuries. Physical therapists can also help children during sport season to maintain health after injury and improve athletic performance.
