As a physical therapist, I treat pain through movement and exercise, helping patients improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion. Manual therapy is a hands-on approach to treating pain. It can reduce pain and improve movement. Physical therapists also educate their patients about pain, understanding their patient’s pain history and then helping their patient to set realistic goals, which has been known to improve their outcome. Physical therapists are exercise and movement experts who optimize quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care, and patient education.
Some of the more common conditions we treat in our clinics include: back & neck pain, shoulder & elbow pain, arthritis, auto, work & sport injuries, headaches, orthopedic disorders, acute & chronic tendonitis, balance disorders and pre & post-surgical rehabilitation, along with countless other conditions affecting an individual's ability to move freely, without pain.
There’s a wide assortment of medical conditions that can benefit from the appropriate form of exercise and treatment. A few conditions treated by physical therapy that people may be surprised to hear are dizziness, vertigo, osteoarthritis and Parkinson’s Disease. We examine, evaluate, and treat patients of all ages and abilities to expand, restore, and maintain motion. We help our patients improve motion and relieve pain.
An advantage of having direct access certified therapists at my clinics is getting to treat the patient sooner than later. Research shows that the sooner an injury is treated- the sooner the recovery, with less the cost. Call today for your evaluation!
