How can Physical Therapy help with chronic pain?
Chronic pain is any discomfort that lasts more than 3 months or beyond an expected healing time. We will help to educate in understanding what chronic pain is and how we can help. Strengthening and flexibility exercises will be specifically designed to fit your individual needs, helping you to gain what you will need to decrease the pain and strain on your body. Manual therapy is a hands on technique that is a gentle manipulation of the tissues, mobilizing tense joints and soft tissues. This will increase range of motion, administer more blood flow to the tissues and reduce your pain. Posture and body mechanics will be taught to you to help you learn how to hold your body so the discomfort can decrease.
Are you in need of post or pre surgical rehabilitation?
We can help with your post and pre-surgical rehabilitation to get you back to work, back to living your life fully and comfortable and to get you on the right path of healing and recovery. Your first visit with your therapist will be to establish goals for therapy and in most cases you will be given a home exercise program so you can continue your rehabilitation at home too. Common injuries include~Rotator cuff repairs, total joint replacements (shoulder, hip, knee), anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, arthroscopic knee surgeries (meniscectomies, meniscal repairs), hip surgeries, nerve releases (cubital tunnel, radial tunnel, carpal tunnel, tarsal tunnel), neck and back surgery (fusions, laminectomy, decompression), surgical fixation of fractures of the arms and legs and achilles tendon repairs.
Orthopedic Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy focuses on problems of the musculoskeletal system. The primary goal of this service is to restore activity, strength and motion by strengthening, stretching, balance, passive stretching and joint mobilizations and modalities to decrease swelling and increase circulation and healing times.

What can you expect from your Therapy Visit?
You will be asked medical history questions by your therapist and complete a physical evaluation.

The following is a list of some specific treatment exercises~Passive range of motion, active range of motion, neuromuscular re-education, proper body mechanics, activities of daily living and gait balance training.
