About Physical Therapy in Milwaukee

Physical Therapy promotes wellness, mobility and independent function.  Physical Therapists have advanced understanding of how the body moves, what keeps it from moving well and how to restore mobility.

Is Physical Therapy for Me?

Physical Therapists are professionals who understand movement and function. Your physical therapist at Bodygenic is skilled at assessing and managing a range of conditions including:

  • Physical conditions such as back pain, arthritis and repetitive strain injury
  • Chronic joint pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Post surgery recovery
  • Physical complications of cancer and its treatment
  • Mobility problems related to neurological disorders such as stroke, spinal cord injury or Parkinson’s disease
  • Shoulder, hip, and knee pain and other joint injuries
  • Respiratory and cardiac conditions
  • Dizziness and vestibular dysfunction

We can also help you to prevent most of the above conditions by offering advice on posture, exercise, workplace and lifestyle habits.

We will work as part of a team with you and sometimes other health care providers.  The success of your Physical Therapy program usually requires your co-operation outside of what we do during physical therapy sessions.  You will probably be required to participate in an exercise program or some modifications to your postural or lifestyle habits.  Your dedication to your Physical Therapy "homework" will greatly enhance the outcome of your Physical Therapy program and will help you to achieve your goals as quickly as possible.

You can expect your Physical Therapist will follow the system below to ensure your time in Physical Therapy and at home is used effectively to reach your goals.
