To get you back on the field or feeling like yourself again, our physicians and physical therapists offer an array of physical therapy options and equipment to address issues brought about by sports and spine injuries or chronic conditions:
Manual therapy describes a specialized form of physical therapy delivered by touch as opposed to a machine or device. Our skilled manual therapists use a hands-on approach to apply specific pressure to your affected muscle tissue and joints to produce a corrective action to alleviate problems caused by your sports or work injury. It is especially effective in relieving deep-rooted pain in spinal injuries, as our skilled manual therapists use a hands-on approach to apply direct pressure to affected muscle tissue along the spine.
Aquatic (or pool) therapy is an exercise program performed entirely in water for those suffering from musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, and other diseases, disorders, or conditions. This type of treatment is extremely beneficial for a variety of spine or sport injuries where the reduced impact on joints is crucial.
In addition to making exercising easier and less painful, aquatic therapy allows for muscle strengthening without the use of weights and utilizes hydrostatic pressure to decrease swelling and improve joint position awareness. It also contributes to overall patient health and wellness.
Our physical therapists are fully trained in the Graston Technique. This state-of-the-art, hands-on method of treatment combines the use of specific instrumentation and skilled evaluation and treatment techniques to address painful and restricted areas of the body resulting in effective, positive outcomes in many orthopaedic and spine-related conditions.
As part of a total approach to treatment and rehabilitation, our physical therapists employ the Kinesio Taping Method, which is a specific taping technique to stabilize muscles and joints to facilitate the body’s natural healing process. Kinesio Taping is used for anything from headaches to foot problems and many problems in-between.
