Our 3,500 square foot physical therapy facility houses state-of-the-art equipment and fully trained physical therapists. We deliver the highest quality and most efficient physical therapy to patients from pediatric to geriatric by creating a personalized program to suit your specific rehabilitative needs.
Benefits of Physical Therapy
Our patients range from athletes looking to improve their performance to accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as neck and low back pain, arthritis, pre- and post-operative surgical rehabilitation, heart disease, fractures, and orthopedic injuries. It’s our goal to help you return to full activity by restoring, maintaining, and promoting overall fitness and health. Our team of physical therapists provide services to help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and limit permanent disabilities. Patients benefit from improved flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, range of motion, and posture.
What to Expect During Physical Therapy
First, our physical therapists perform an examination, take medical history, and test and measure strength, range of motion, balance, coordination, posture, muscle performance, respiration, and motor function. Then, they develop a treatment plan describing strategy, purpose, and anticipated outcome. We also determine our patients’ ability to be independent and reintegrate into the community or workplace following an injury or illness. Our patients may also be assisted by Physical Therapy Assistants under the direction and supervision of our Physical Therapists.
Throughout treatment, our physical therapists will document progress, perform periodic examinations, and modify treatment as necessary. It’s our goal to provide integrated, independent, and ongoing patient care so that all of our patients can achieve their goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
New and Traditional Physical Therapy Techniques
We begin by assisting patients to increase their flexibility and range of motion using their own muscular ability. Then, we advance to exercises that improve strength, balance, coordination, and endurance with the goal of improving function at work and at home.
Our physical therapists sometimes integrate additional modalities such as electrical stimulation, hot packs, cold compresses, and ultrasound to reduce pain and swelling. Sometimes we also recommend traction or deep-tissue massage. Our physical therapists are also trained to teach patients how to use adaptive devices such as crutches, prostheses, and wheelchairs. We also show patients exercises to be completed at home in order to expedite recovery.
