If you have recently experienced a sports-related injury, you have been involved in a car accident, you’ve undergone a medical procedure or you have any other concern that interferes with your physical wellness, then you might consider taking advantage of our therapy programs. Injuries can result in stress and uncertainty, especially when they go untreated.
Physical therapy helps people who have experienced some form of disability resulting from sports-related injuries, accidents and even some medical procedures. Physical therapy is an art that doesn’t involve medicine or surgery. Highly-trained and qualified specialists put their skills to work by helping patients to regain control of their lives.
Our board-certified team provides treatment for a variety of conditions to all patients regardless of their age. They utilize different modalities to achieve the desired results.
Benefits of Physical Therapy
Physical therapy treatments offer many health benefits to patients. A recent study found that close to 70 percent of patients who undergo physical therapy for various spine, knee and shoulder injuries were successfully treated without being subjected to prescription medicine or imaging.
Furthermore, these therapy programs can help in relieving and eliminating chronic pain from various parts of the body. After successful treatment, many patients can resume their normal lives without the need of further treatment or care.
What to Expect
Most therapy programs are designed to offer significant relief from pain and restore normal functioning. Some of the problems addressed include:
- Neck and back pain
- Knee and hip pain
- Foot and ankle pain
- Balance and fall prevention
- Shoulder pain
- Post-surgical rehab and sports injuries
We may also have you engage in therapeutic exercises to strengthen the weakened muscles as part of the recovery process. These exercises are usually gentle, and they help in improving your range of motion, coordination, strength, and stamina. Most of these exercises are easy and can also be done at home to maintain your results.
