Soft Tissue Mobilization
Soft tissue mobilization plays an important role in the successful recovery of an injury or rehabilitation following a surgical procedure. Our therapists apply hands-on soft tissue mobilization to help prevent the build up of scar tissue that can limit movement.
Joint mobilization is a manual therapy technique that is used to reduce pain, restore joint play and increase range of motion of an injured limb.
Pre- and Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
Pre- or post-surgery physical therapy is important in preventing and reducing stiffness, swelling, pain, and limited motion. Rehabilitation exercises can help increase strength, endurance, motion, balance, and coordination so that you can perform your favorite activities as independently as possible. Our physical therapists focus on the functional goals that are important to you.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation
For the injured athlete or weekend warrior, sports injury rehabilitation can help the recovery process. Our physical therapists will use hands-on techniques and therapeutic modalities to help increase circulation and reduce pain and swelling. Our physical therapists will show you how to optimize strength, agility, and performance to get you back in the game. We will also teach you how to prevent similar injuries in the future.
Exercise therapy is individualized and specific to the type of injury or condition you have. Our physical therapists will create a specific exercise plan just for you. As you progress, we will upgrade your therapeutic exercise plan to challenge your capabilities. Exercise therapy can help improve flexibility, strength, and coordination to improve functional use following an injury or orthopedic condition.
Electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and hot or cold treatments are modalities that can help relax muscles, stimulate muscles, increase range of motion, and reduce pain. Our therapists incorporate modalities with hands-on treatment and exercise to enhance the therapeutic effect.
Braces are used to position, support, and protect a joint while it heals. Braces may be worn to provide support or positioning during select activities.
Orthotics are shoe inserts that are used to correct an irregular walking pattern. They make standing, walking, and running more comfortable and efficient by altering slightly the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface. Custom-made orthotics are made specifically to meet individual needs.
Fall Prevention Program
Falls are a leading cause of injury in adults over the age of 65. Our Fall Prevention Program begins with a comprehensive assessment of your medical history, posture, strength, flexibility, balance and vestibular function to identify fall risk factors. Our physical therapists will then customize an exercise and education program specific to your needs. The goal of our Fall Prevention Program is to maximize your safety, function and self-confidence, which will reduce your risk of falls and fall-related injuries.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD)
If you have facial pain, jaw pain, headaches or locking, popping or clicking in the jaw, you may have a temporomandibular disorder (TMD). While disorders of the jaw joint, or temporomandibular joint (TMJ), are common, relief of pain and restoration of function can be challenging. Worse, without effective care, the pain and improper oral function can disrupt nearly every aspect of your life.
The good news is that it is possible to relieve the pain and restore normal TMJ function. The key is to accurately assess the problem and then provide treatment that is appropriate and effective. Today, physical therapy figures prominently into effective treatment, sometimes alone and sometimes in conjunction with other treatment methods.
