Often it’s not what exercise you’re doing, it’s how you’re doing them that causes problems! It requires skilled, hands-on correction through repetition to correct movement patterns. The majority of chronic pain problems can be corrected and surgeries prevented with this process.
Most, but not all pain problems can be 100% corrected. We offer pain-relieving modalities including electrical stimulation, ultrasound, infrared light therapy and compression therapy. We also offer assistance for techniques or devices that can be utilized independently at home to help manage pain.
Our team members are specifically trained to recognize and correct movement faults that can hinder sports performance and eventually lead to pain or injury. We also offer comprehensive running assessments that include a video analysis of a person’s running form and corrective techniques.
Our manual therapy techniques range from gentle stretching for pain relief to more aggressive instrument-assisted or hands-on myofascial release techniques. Most adults have pain problems because of decreased mobility in specific areas causing musculoskeletal imbalances.
Many post-surgery patients are released from medical care too early which can result in long-term impaired function. Physical therapy bridges the gap between functionally difficult experiences during the first weeks or months after surgery, and best possible long-term, functional outcomes.
Geriatric Functional Mobility
As we age, it's common to experience decreased mobility. We focus on an individual’s strength, range of motion, balance, and coordination. This may include exercises to improve strength and flexibility, balance training and manual therapy techniques to reduce pain and improve joint mobility.
