Physical therapists (PTs) evaluate patients’ neuromuscular and orthopedic disorders; prescribing specific exercises to increase strength, endurance, agility, and flexibility. Our expertise is sought out to assist individuals reach their fitness goals, through professionally developed training programs.
Neuromuscular Re-Education is incorporated into all treatment, to connect the mind (nervous system) and body (musculoskeletal system). These techniques (such as NMES, biofeedback, verbal, and tactile cues) re-establish normal movement patterns, and improve body awareness. In some cases, Bracing/ Sports Taping/ Splinting is necessary to adequately reduce pain, and stabilize injured muscles and/or joints.
Our therapists believe strongly that hands on treatment, combined with active patient participation, are most effective in resolving disorders of mechanical origin. Manual therapy is integral to our practice. We are trained in joint and soft tissue mobilization, which restore range of motion and decrease discomfort.
We utilize appropriate tests and measures to identify dysfunction contributing to poor balance. Patient education on safety and exercise is key to: increase independence, decrease fear, and prevent risk of injury. Treatment of the inner ear and/ or cervical spine may be necessary to alleviate nausea, headache, and dizziness.
