Our physical therapy staff is comprised of experienced and highly trained therapists. Our therapists have specialized training in orthopaedics and manual therapy to provide quality care and achieve optimal outcomes.
Manual therapy is a specialized treatment for the management of orthopaedic conditions. Treatment includes specific highly skilled approaches to restore normal motion and power to joints and muscles.
Our Physical Therapists are trained to assess the athlete’s location and extent of the injury. Once an exam is complete, a comprehensive treatment regimen will be developed to restore the athlete to pre-injury level and prevent the risk of re-injury.
Specific Therapeutic Exercise Prescription
Injured areas of the body will be assessed to determine which exercises are optimal for the tissue that is damaged (i.e., cartilage, muscle, tendon, nerve, and bone). Exercise prescriptions will include sets and repetitions that are optimal for the patient’s specific area of injury and the tissue type involved.
Kinesio Taping is a technique designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles. Kinesio Tape supports the joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy.
This is a method used for patients that have pain with full weight-bearing activities. Unloading allows patients to walk with less pain and achieve a more normal walking pattern.
Mechanical traction is a non-surgical form of treatment to alleviate low back pain, neck pain and radiating pain into legs or arms. Traction can be successful in alleviating pain associated with disc herniations, degenerative disc disease, and facet osteoarthritis.
