Physical therapy services include:
Our therapists use soft tissue and joint mobilization techniques to help relieve pain, reduce swelling, and increase circulation. Our therapists use this technique to help restore motion and function in the hip, knee, or foot following injury or an orthopedic condition.
Doctors may refer patients to pre-surgery rehabilitation, particularly before knee surgery, to ensure that the muscles around the knee are in the best shape possible to facilitate good post-surgical results.
Following hip, knee, or foot surgery, physical therapy plays a very important part in rehabilitation and recovery. Our therapists will employ exercise, modalities, and other components of physical therapy to increase strength, endurance, motion, balance, and coordination for functional independence.
Gait training following hip, knee, or foot injury or surgery focuses on strength, endurance, motion, balance, and coordination for safe walking and the prevention of falls. Our therapists will train you to use a walking device, such as a cane or walker, if necessary.
The knees in particular are very vulnerable to injury during sports that require sudden starts, stops, pivoting, or contact with other players. The feet are susceptible to strain, sprain, and broken toes. In many cases, many sports injuries can heal with rehabilitation. For others, physical therapy can help recovery following surgery. Our therapists can help professional and amateur athletes recover from hip, knee, and foot injuries and optimize strength, agility, and performance. We will also teach you how to prevent similar injuries in the future.
Our highly trained therapists are familiar with exercises specifically for muscles in the hips, knees, and feet. We will challenge you to reach your optimal recovery with exercises to help improve flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, balance, and posture. Our therapists provide 1:1 treatment times and individualized exercise plans that are upgraded as you progress.
Infrared, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and hot or cold treatments are modalities that can help relax muscles, stimulate muscles, increase range of motion, and reduce pain. Our therapists use modalities in combination with other types of physical therapies for the hip, knee, and feet to achieve the best outcomes.
Massage therapy is used to help stimulate and improve circulation, relieve pain and stiffness, and improve flexibility and range of motion during the treatment of hip, knee, and foot conditions. Our professional therapeutic massages is tissue specific and may be preceded or followed by other types of therapy for enhanced results.
Advances in technology have revolutionized braces and splints that are used for the knees and feet. Braces and splints are used to position a joint while it heals or support a joint during motion.
From sophisticated temporary braces that can be worn for support during sports, such as custom knee braces for water skiing, to shoe inserts that can position the foot for walking, braces and splints can remarkably affect the way you move. Our licensed professional therapists have the expertise and resources to make sure you are matched with the perfect brace or splint for all of your activity needs.
Manual Therapy is defined by the Guide to Physical Therapy practice as "the skilled passive movement to a joint and/or related soft tissues at varying speeds and amplitudes." Our therapists have experience with soft tissue mobilization as well as joint manipulation/mobilization in order to restore range of motion and function and assist in decreasing pain and limitations. Some of our therapists have undergone rigorous training to become Manual Therapy Certified (MTC) in order to enhance their knowledge and clinical skills to better treat patients and return them to their prior level of function.
