What is physical therapy, you ask?

Physical therapy is a strategic process comprising three crucial stages: pain relief, strengthening, and functional integration. Contrary to some misconceptions, physical therapy aims at reducing pain and enhancing strength. Our dedicated DPTs guarantee that your therapy plan is pain-free and comfortable, utilizing various services such as ice and heat therapies, stretching, bracing, and ultrasound.

Our dependable evaluation procedure is designed for all musculoskeletal issues, spanning pain in the back, neck and extremities, sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms, and intermittent numbness in hands or feet.

Physical therapy isn’t just about treatment – it’s about problem-solving. Our therapists work closely with you, focusing on specific movements to bolster your strength, flexibility, balance, and overall mobility. They guide you through your in-clinic exercises and also provide you with simple routines to perform at home.

The objective of physical therapy? Empowering you to live life on your terms, unhindered by painful constraints. This empowerment comes from applying the knowledge and exercises you learn during therapy to your daily life. Our therapists are as committed as you are, cheering you on to reach the goals you’ve outlined from the start.

Imagine wielding the knowledge and power to manage your pain and stiffness, with the ability to perform your work or daily activities without depending on unnecessary medications, injections, or surgery. Seize control of your injury, empower yourself, and reclaim the life you love through targeted movements and exercises provided by our certified physical therapists.

How can physical therapy assist me?

Physical therapy’s objective remains consistent regardless of your needs. Be it lingering pain from an injury, recovery from surgery, or simply seeking relief from aging joints, our DPTs are committed to alleviating your discomfort and restoring your peak physical health.

Physical therapists are movement specialists, proficient in diagnosing mobility issues related to walking, running, jumping, bending, stretching, and virtually all forms of physical activity. Our DPTs can identify problem areas and tailor a treatment plan to improve those specific points. Through in-office sessions and at-home exercises, you can strengthen your muscles and joints, improve your balance, build endurance, and experience pain relief, all without the negative side effects of drugs or surgery.

What should you expect?

Physical therapy is personalized medicine at its best. As everyone’s body has unique needs, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Our therapists will work closely with you, assessing your mobility, balance, range of motion, and pain intensity. Your personal goals and potential health risks will be considered when crafting your treatment plan. An initial evaluation may involve basic movements such as sitting, standing, walking, lifting, and stretching. Once our physical therapists grasp your needs, they will develop a treatment plan to alleviate your pain and help you achieve your aspirations.

In conclusion, an active lifestyle is attainable, even with chronic pain. If you’re keen on improving your health, strength, and physical activity, look no further – we’re here to help.
