Physical Therapy

In physical therapy, the therapist assesses muscle strength and flexibility, joint motion and stability, muscular and cardiovascular endurance, and the ability to perform activities of daily living. They are experts in movement and function, and focus on treating and preventing injuries. Physical therapy is physical. Recovery from an injury or painful and debilitating condition requires hard work and commitment to your therapy program. Depending on your injury, your physical therapy program will consist of different types of treatments and exercises. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Soft tissue Therapy
  • Spine Stabilization
  • Hand Therapy
  • Ergonomics
  • Pre/Post Surgery
  • Floor Exercises
  • Treadmill Exercises
  • Bike Exercises
  • Weights
  • Ultrasound
  • Electrical Stimulation
  • Hot and Cold Pack
  • Edema (Swelling) Control
  • Desensitization
  • Range of Motion Exercises

Passive manual therapy treatments such as ice, heat, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation help to alleviate inflammation and pain. Active treatments such as stretching, muscle re-education, conditioning, and strengthening aid in restoring function.

Every patient and the nature of his or her injury or condition is unique, therefore physical therapy treatment plans vary for each patient. Your therapist will tailor your rehabilitation according to your individual needs and abilities.
