Services often requested from our physical therapists include, but are not limited to:
Back and Neck Pain
Our physical therapists are keenly aware how back and neck pain can impact your quality of life and ability to work effectively and play fully.
Physical therapy has been proven in scientific studies to be an effective course of action in the treatment of even the most severe back and neck pain.
We will work with you to find immediate relief from your pain and devise programs where we work with you to ensure the pain does not become chronic and that injuries do not recur.
Pre and Post-Surgical Therapy
A number of scientific studies in recent years have supported the effectiveness of physical therapy both before and after surgery, especially in the full recovery of joint replacements.
Full recovery is made possible when you enter the surgery in the best possible shape and have the assistance of professional physical therapists following surgery.
Our goal is to help you return to active, pain-free living as quickly as possible and to build your strength and mobility to ensure that there are no lingering weaknesses from your surgery.
Leg and lower back pain coupled with tingling and numbness is often referred to as sciatica, a symptom of an injury or condition that has caused the sciatic nerve to be irritated.
We will work with you to determine the cause of your pain and develop a customized program of treatment.
We may prescribe continuing exercise programs as well that you can continue on your own to ensure that the pain does not return.
Upper and lower extremities pain
Whether you are suffering from pain in your arms and shoulders or legs and ankles, our customized physical therapy programs can provide relief and long-term healing.
By using modern modalities and evidence-based exercise programs, we will work with you to restore your range of motion and strengthen your limbs.
Our goal is to enhance your endurance and mobility both through our programs of treatment and by working with you to set in place home exercise programs as well.
Like back pain, headaches plague millions of people each year, seriously impacting your desire to participate fully in life and causing days of seemingly endless pain.
Headaches are generally categorized as tension-type, secondary-type as in resulting from some other underlying condition, migraine and cluster or cranial neuralgias or facial pain.
Almost every type of headache can be helped with physical therapy. Your physical therapist will work with you to determine the type and cause of your headache, and then to devise an appropriate treatment plan.
Tendonitis and other repetitive strain injuries
Located where bones and muscles connect in our bodies, tendons are bands of fibrous tissue that are usually quite flexible. When they become injured or inflamed, however, their flexibility is compromised and pain results.
Pain in the tendons is most commonly linked by repetitive overuse either through a sporting activity or a workplace activity. It can also be impacted by arthritis or injury.
Physical therapy is an effective approach to the treatment of painful tendons. We will work with you to reduce pain and restore mobility as quickly as possible.
Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia and Arthritis
The chronic pain of conditions such as chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia can lead to reduced participation in life and feelings of hopelessness.
We have worked to provide effective relief of chronic pain and help patients to be empowered to overcome a life of persistent pain.
Our physical therapy has also been found to be effective to assist many patients who are suffering pain from arthritis and cancer.
As we age, we often face a number of physical and emotional changes that can impact our ability to function well. Geriatric rehabilitation focuses on overcoming age-related conditions such as skeletal problems such as osteoporosis, conditions involving joint replacement surgery and pain and reduced mobility that can accompany disuse and deconditioning.
Our goal as physical therapists is to help our senior patients be successfully rehabilitation to return to a normal quality of movement and flexibility.
We will also work on an educational component to assist patients in preventing falls and embracing a lifestyle that keeps them active and independent for as long as possible.
