Physical therapy increases motion and mobility while decreasing pain, without using medication, to help patients regain maximum functioning throughout life. Movement and function can be threatened by injury, aging, surgery, or disease, but our therapies can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and optimal well-being. The benefits of physical therapy are immense, ranging from helping you move through your daily tasks to recovering from a major surgery, to improving your overall fitness. Our skilled therapists seek to offer a total wellness experience to each of our patients.
Physical therapy is a health care profession that utilizes a variety of services to offer treatment designed to strengthen, maintain, and restore function and movement. Treatment is usually sought in response to aging, surgery, injury, pain, or disease. The goal of treatment is to maximize the quality of life for each patient. Treatments may be focused on prevention, intervention, or rehabilitation. Preventative therapies seek to develop fitness and an active lifestyle to limit loss of mobility, intervention works to treat injuries or pain, and rehabilitation focuses on regaining mobility after surgery or injury. Our physical therapists work with you and your doctor to help meet your goals for quality of life and long-term health. Your therapist can help you with a number of common issues, including:
On your initial visit, a physical therapist will meet with you to perform a physical examination and review your medical history. They will use the information provided to develop a treatment plan based on your condition and needs. Some treatment methods include education, manual therapy, and stimulation with cold, heat, water, ultrasound, and electricity. Exercise is often a part of a physical therapy program and may incorporate core exercises, stretching, walking, and/or weight training. Exercises are frequently performed during a treatment session, but the therapist may also teach you exercises that you can do at home. Patients may experience mild soreness after treatment, but talk to your therapist if you are ever bothered by the discomfort.
When exploring the possibility of any kind of medical treatment, you want a health care professional who has the training and experience necessary to handle your situation and provide effective care. Our licensed physical therapists provide professional, compassionate care for a variety of conditions. Sessions are conveniently located on-site and offer specialized treatments to help you improve your overall health and mobility. Our focus is on providing you with the education and treatment options to maximize your movement potential.
