Is Physical Therapy Right for Me?

Physical therapy is both a rehabilitative and preventative field of treatment. Our ergonomic and fall risk assessments will help identify ways to improve your body mechanics and avoid injury. If you have suffered an injury or recently had surgery, we work with you to improve range of motion, strength, neuromuscular control, postural corrections, coordination, balance and elimination of pain and swelling that ensure optimal recovery and improvement in your quality of life.

Does Performance Rehabilitation Diagnose Conditions?

Our physical therapists utilize the Maitland Approach to the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. This approach places the patient at the center and relies on interactive questioning of the patient so that the physical therapist can develop a treatment hypothesis. This hypothesis is then confirmed or denied during a detailed physical examination that again utilizes interactive questioning and is simply asking the patient if they feel better, worse, or the same after a treatment technique is utilized. This is very empowering for the patient because very often they have been told what the problem is based upon an x-ray or MRI. Both are important pieces of information utilized by the physical therapist to help develop a clinical diagnosis and treatment program. But what ultimately drives successful outcomes is how a patient presents clinically and how the physical therapist is able to assess and re-assess what is always a fluid process. And this requires keen observation, clinical reasoning, and proper questioning of the patient to get to the root of the problem and treating the cause, not the symptom. Our physical therapists utilize evidence-based care, and this ensures that the patient is involved in the process, and the therapist relies not only on clinical expertise but the latest research to better validate and enhance treatment outcomes.
