Physical Therapies

A number of conditions or ailments benefit from physical therapy where the emphasis is to promote mobility, ability to function more independently, and achieve a better quality of life. Physical intervention occurs after the patient is examined and evaluated resulting in a diagnosis. Loss of mobility may be prevented by the development of an exercise program and more general wellness-oriented program for the patient. Manual therapy commonly is part of the individualized program.

Physical Therapy Rehabilitation

Recovery from serious injury, illness or surgery may require therapy to regain strength. Skills lost may need to be relearned or new ways to complete daily activities learned during the rehabilitation process. Physical therapy is useful in recovering strength, mobility and general fitness.

Spinal and Extremity Mobilization

Mobilization helps to restore range of motion to affected joints by moving them through their normal range of motion. This assists in reducing the pain of inflammation and swelling as well as repairing abnormal joint motion.

Traction

Our traction treatment benefits by reducing pressure within the disc to take pressure off surrounding nerves, decreasing scar tissue and increasing hydration of the disc.
