We can work with you to develop a program that will help you regain normal jaw function is you suffer from temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) or if you are recovering from TM joint surgery. Techniques may include exercises to improve flexibility and regain range of motion, heat and ice therapy, massage and more. Treatments will focus on relaxation, stretching and minimizing scar tissue if surgery was done
Amateur and professional athletes can benefit from physical therapy. We can help with injury prevention, minimizing pain and improving balance and coordination. Our techniques include training regimens, manual and orthopedic therapy, and tailored exercise programs.
Back and neck pain can be chronic and affect many aspects of well-being. We can help you create a custom exercise plan to strengthen the back and increase flexibility so it is more resistant to injury. Techniques include manual physical therapy on the vertebrae and surrounding soft tissue. Our goal is to help you reduce spinal pain and prevent further injury.
Foot and ankle pain can severely affect your quality of life. We provide care for a variety of foot and leg problems such as heel pain, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, Achilles tendon injuries, ankle sprains, and more. We’ll work with you to create a plan to increase mobilization, reduce pain and restore function through a combination of orthotics, manual physical therapy, soft tissue mobilization and more.
Orthopaedics focuses on preserving and restoring function in the musculoskeletal system. Orthopaedic physical therapy can be used for non surgical patients as well as for post-operative rehabilitation. A few conditions we can assist with are:
● Arthritis ● Joint and muscle pain ● Muscle weakness and imbalance ● Spinal alignment dysfunction ● Tendonitis and bursitis
Manual physical therapy can help restore mobility to stiff joints and reduce muscle tension so you can return to more natural movement without pain. Techniques are aimed at relaxing tense back muscles and restricted joints to reduce back pain and increase flexibility. Soft tissue work, such as massage, can help relax muscle and increase circulation while manipulation work reduce joint pain and help with flexibility and alignment. Manual physical therapy can help relieve:
● Lower back pain ● Neck pain ● Muscle-tension headaches ● Hip and knee osteoarthritis ● Shoulder pain
Hand therapy involves treating conditions of the shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand. We provide interventions, preventative care and post-surgical rehabilitation for a wide variety of upper extremity issues such as:
● Carpal tunnel syndrome ● Arthritis ● RTC tendonitis ● Dupuytren’s contracture ● Tennis elbow ● Fractures and dislocations
Dry needling is a technique used to treat muscle pain and tightness. A thin needle is inserted into trigger points in order to release muscle tension, reduce pain and increase range of motion. This technique allows the therapist to target tissues that can not be reached manually. While the needle does penetrate the muscle, you may or may not feel the insertion. Some patients may feel a brief cramp at the site of insertion. Dry needling can be done for various musculoskeletal conditions and issues like chronic pain as well.
Physical therapy can help you manage your chronic pain and minimize your use of medication. Common complaints are headache, arthritis, neurogenic pain, and back/neck pain. We’ll work with you on strengthening and flexibility exercises, posture awareness, body mechanics and more. We’ll also help you understand the cause of your pain and ways to prevent it in the future.
Cervicogenic headaches are chronic headaches that can occur because of a neck dysfunction or lesion. We can work with you to decrease the pain and increase your range of motion through strengthening exercises and manipulation of the thoracic and cervical spine. Many of them have lack of a good posture as a major contributor. We can assist you to have a better ergonomic set up and awareness as well.
Breast cancer and its treatments, such as chemotherapy, can affect energy and physical functioning. For example, many treatments decrease estrogen in the body which can lead to decreased bone density. Procedures around the chest and armpit area can cause limitations in shoulder range of motion. We can help you design an individualized exercise program that combines range-of-motion training with light resistance exercises. This aims to reduce fatigue and decrease chances of developing lymphedema, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff issues, and posture weakness
