We will help you overcome and heal from the pain and discomfort of musculoskeletal injuries. Through physical therapy delivered directly in your home or office, we work to bring you back to your normal level of activity as quickly as possible.
We use evidence-based techniques coupled with education and prescribed exercises to not only help you heal, but give you the tools to remain healthy and strong in the long term.
Back and Neck Pain
Back pain, especially pain in the lower back, impacts the lives and health of more than 80 percent of Americans at some point in their lives.
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, lower back pain is the leading cause of disability around the world.
With that being said, back and neck pain can be effectively treated with physical therapy. This allows those who are experiencing pain to return to their active lifestyles without medications or surgery. Our hands-on and movement-therapy approach paired with individualized exercises help the patient feel better in the short and long-term.
Consumer reports and studies show a common theme across the board: Seeking physical therapy as the first line of treatment can save over $1,500 per episode of care, and reduce the likelihood of opiod prescription by nearly 90% for individuals experiencing back pain.
Shoulder, Knee and Hip Pain
Shoulder pain can have a multitude of causes. Because the shoulder is a complex made up of four separate joints, a thorough evaluation will help determine a proper individualized plan of care to help relieve pain and regain function.
Knee pain brings many individuals to seek physical therapy and cases have been steadily increasing as society embraces a more active and movement-conscious lifestyle.
Hip pain is complicated since the source of pain may be from the hip joint itself, or from the various other structures that surround it.
We work with each specific kind of pain to determine the root cause of the pain, alleviate it, and then help you build up your strength to avoid recurring injuries.
Pre and Post-Surgery
Research has shown that having physical therapy both before and after a joint replacement surgery will speed up healing and lead to a full recovery.
We are knowledgeable about joint replacement surgery and other surgeries and will work to determine the most effective therapy for you.
Our goal is to help you increase strength, activity and range of motion so that you can return to a normally active life as quickly as possible without recurring problems.
Balance and Gait Issues
Dizziness and balance issues can seriously impact your quality of life, making it difficult for you to conduct the normal activities of daily life and fostering fear of going out alone.
Signs that you are experiencing balance issues include frequent falls, vertigo, imbalance, dizziness and migraines.
We are experienced in providing balance training and therapy to avoid compounding the difficulties created by balance issues.
We also conduct gait assessments to determine if your body’s pattern of movement is causing other problems to develop.
If your running or walking gait is off, it will compromise your ability to walk and run and can lead to recurring injuries.
Chronic Pain Relief
Chronic pain can become so incapacitating that it becomes difficult to do the ordinary activities of everyday life.
Our goal is to work with you as an individual to learn about your history and your pain so we can customize a holistic program of care to help you find relief that is lasting. We will start with a detailed physical evaluation and also learn how your pain is impacting your life.
We will work with you to determine treatment goals and determine what level of movement and exercise is possible for you to begin.
We are experienced in treating many kinds of chronic pain and our combination of thorough assessment, treatment and exercise has been effective in many cases where the patient had given up hope.
To enable our patients to become active participants in their own recovery and reach their rehabilitation goals faster, we prescribe therapeutic exercises that can be done by each patient between our home visits.
These exercises are custom-designed to meet specific needs of each patient.
Therapeutic exercise has a myriad of benefits and helps improve: muscle strength, flexibility, joint motion, circulation, endurance, coordination & balance, respiratory capacity, pain response and overall functional capacity. (The list goes on!)
