We treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions, including plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow and impingement syndrome. The focus of therapy is to improve the patient’s biomechanics to reduce overuse injury with goal of return to prior level of function. Our department utilizes manual therapy skills to reduce myofascial tension, therapeutic exercise to restore musculoskeletal symmetry, and the use of modalities to reduce pain and inflammation.
Pelvic floor therapy
Physical therapy can help with various modalities such as ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and biofeedback. Our specially trained therapists use exercise to strengthen weak muscles as well as teach overly tight muscles to completely relax. Manual techniques are used to restore balance to the muscles and joints of the pelvis, lumbar spine and hips.
Most importantly, our physical therapists educate the patient how to manage their problem and return to daily activities.
Pre and post-natal
The goal of therapy is to improve postural awareness and lumbar stabilization with appropriate progression of a home program specifically designed for the pre or post natal patient.
Pre and post-Surgical
Our Physical Therapy department encourages a patient to be seen prior to surgery to provide gait training using crutches, cane or walker. Physical Therapists are specially trained to progress range of motion and strength to restore you back to your prior level of function throughout your entire rehab program. Your therapist provides regular progress reports to your physician to improve patient outcomes and communication.
Vestibular rehabilitation helps patients address their decrease in balance and stability by improving postural control, center of gravity and limits of stability combined with sensory integration. In addition the therapist is able to assess the need for canal repositioning techniques which may include the Epley maneuver to help resolve vertigo.
