What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapists assist the recovery process of people experiencing health problems resulting from injury or disease. We use exercises and hands on treatments including specific muscle/joint stretching and manual techniques to make patients stronger, relieve their pain, and improve their abilities to perform activities of daily living such as lifting, sports and hobbies. Physical modalities including heat, cold ultrasound, traction, and many varieties of electric stimulation are also used to help with pain management.

By emphasizing the importance of fitness, showing patients how to avoid hurting their bodies at work or during play, and by designing and supervising individualized exercise programs, physical therapists promote optimal physical wellness.

We offer a very unique blend of physical therapy that makes us distinctive from other clinics. Our combination of advanced manual therapy techniques, customized exercise programs, instruction in body mechanics/ergonomics, relaxation techniques, Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT), and acupuncture, helps promote healing in the shortest amount of time along with minimal pain/ discomfort. Our caring and experienced staff looks forward to helping you.
