is a specialized medical profession that provides individually tailored programs that help patients improve physical function, mobility, decrease pain, and maintain or regain independence.
Our therapists can help individuals who face a wide range of conditions of musculoskeletal and orthopedic origin, back/neck pain, joint-related disorders (such as arthritis), sports injuries, balance problems, and post-surgical rehabilitation. Most spine & musculosketal pains are result of repetitive, cumulative micro-injuries. Major scientific in managing spine pain indicate exercise and overall fitness level to be the single most key factor in injury recovery.
The therapist, physician and patient work together as a team to meet progressive recovery goals. Treatments may include manual therapy (hands-on); stretching and strengthening exercises; balance training activities; therapeutic exercise; and patient education to promote healing and avoid re-injury.
Our treatment philosophy combines skilled hands-on physical therapy with superior patient education, conditioning, and specific strengthening/stretching programs. Objective measurements are utilized to chart patient progress and outcomes. This multi-faceted approach is designed to restore functional movement, relieve pain and promote healing and recovery. Our emphasis on teaching injury prevention, functional restoration and healthy behaviors helps patients to maintain the improvements made as a result of their therapy and return more rapidly to their work and activities of daily living.
If acute or subacute episodes last longer than 6-8 weeks or recurs our proactive pain management program aggressively treat episodes with non operative interventional pain management options. This is standard of care at our practice, as delayed treatment may lead to chronic pain syndrome, disability, depression and disuse and overall delay in return to function. Early return to function and or work is key in the long term prognosis and the impact of the condition on patients overall well being.
