Physical Therapy & Rehab
We are one of the only therapy offices in our area where the therapists still provide hands on care. We don't just put patients through an exercise circuit. We provide one on one therapy and develop a customized rehab exercise protocol for each patient.
Our highly-trained team of licensed therapists provide physical therapy and rehab under the direction of our medical director.
Therapy can be helpful for easing pain, increasing movement and overall improvement of function. Our caring therapists provide our patients with compassionate group and one-on-one supervised care in our state-of-the-art treatment center.
Physical therapy and rehab can consist of many different modalities and programs. For example:
Cold Therapy (Cryotherapy)
Cold therapy (cryotherapy) is used to reduce tissue pain and swelling, especially following an injury. There are many forms of cold therapy, including ice packs or ice massage.
Electric Muscle Stimulation
Electric muscle stimulation relaxes tissues to ease both acute and chronic pain, swelling, muscle spasms, and scar tissue (adhesions). Electric muscle stimulation is applied with a small unit that delivers a small painless electrical current to a targeted muscle.
Whole body vibration therapy increases bone density, increases muscle mass, improves circulation, reduces joint pain, reduces back pain, alleviates stress, boosts metabolism and stimulates nerves.
Our therapists use iontophoresis to deliver a mild anti-inflammatory medication through the skin to reduce pain and swelling. The iontophoresis technique uses a small painless and harmless electrical current to move the medication.
Mechanical traction is used to separate the space between the bones in the spine to help reduce swelling and back pain and to promote joint movement and hydration to joint structures.
A moist heat pack is used to relieve muscle spasms, increase relaxation, and increase blood flow to promote healing. Heat therapy can be helpful for relieving pain and muscle stiffness, as well as chronic pain.
A soothing paraffin bath uses gentle heat to soothe painful joints in the wrist, hands, and feet. In addition to relieving pain, the warmth eases stiffness and promotes movement. It can be especially helpful for people with arthritis.
Our physical therapists use ultrasound to deliver deep penetrating heat to tissues to provide a micro-massage effect. Ultrasound can be helpful for relieving painful muscles, tendons, and ligaments where they attach near the bone, as well as for breaking down scar tissue and reducing swelling.
Balance is a complex function that involves the coordination of many body systems. If any of the systems are disrupted by injury or neurological disorders, balance problems or dizziness may occur. A custom designed movement and exercise program can help promote optimal function and safe mobility.
Cardiovascular rehabilitation can help patients recover and improve functioning after a heart attack or cardiovascular problems. Cardiovascular rehab is a medically supervised program that can help stabilize, slow, or even reverse the progression of heart and vascular disease.
Gait training refers to therapies to help people walk following trauma, neurological disorders, medical conditions, or orthopedic conditions. Strength, endurance, motion, balance, coordination, and fall prevention are all components of our gait training therapies.
Manual therapy is a hands-on therapeutic modality that is used to relieve pain, increase circulation, decrease swelling, and restore normal muscle movement. A combination of physical therapy techniques including soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, manual lymphatic drainage, manual traction, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release.
Massage therapy is a therapeutic hands-on technique that is used to ease pain, reduce swelling, decrease scar tissue, improve joint motion, restore muscle function, and relieve muscle spasm. Massage therapy is a relaxing modality that is easily combined with other physical therapy techniques. Learn More!
Myofascial release is a hands-on physical rehabilitation technique that can relieve pain and relax muscles and tissues. When muscles are injured or strained, both the muscles and tissues tighten, causing pain. Myofascial release is used to stretch tight and sore areas to relieve pain, restore tissue health, increase motion, and improve function.
Our physical therapists use specialized exercises and techniques called neuromuscular reeducation to restore normal movement patterns, as well as to prevent injury. Muscle movement patterns are affected when nerves experience trauma or injury from trauma, medical conditions, and neurological conditions such as stroke and traumatic brain injury. Learn More!
