Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is the treatment of physical dysfunction or injury by the use of therapeutic exercise and the application of modalities, intended to restore or facilitate normal function or development of an individual.

Physical Therapy provides pain relief through a multifaceted treatment approach. Movement disorders such as neck pain, headaches, low back pain, shoulder tendonitis, knee pain, sprains, tennis elbow and limitations following surgery or injury can result in pain, swelling, and loss of motion. As movement specialists, our physical therapists can help provide relief from these problems and others.

In addition to the obvious cases of patients with sports injuries, orthopedic surgeries, etc., there are those that live with intractable chronic pain, postural deficiencies and muscle imbalances. These maladies often go unattended for years until the pain becomes intense—and in many cases, unbearable. Also, there are patients with balance impairments, vertigo, decreased coordination and urinary incontinence that can benefit from the intervention of Physical Therapy.

Until recent times, patients were treated almost exclusively with traditional modalities — putting little or no emphasis on exercise programs and the great results which can be obtained utilizing muscle energy to correct the structural deficiencies of the body. At Therapy Providers customized exercise programs are designed for each patient with visual feedback and clear, concise instructions in either English or Spanish. This enhances compliance and promotes independence.

In the treatment of patients with work-related injuries — the majority of which are a consequence of improper ergonomics — Therapy Providers will serve the needs of both patients and employers. The objective is a speedy recovery by the patient and a safe return to work without recurrences
