Mission: To provide our patients with high quality, compassionate, and affordable musculoskeletal care, resulting in outcomes that will exceed expectations.
We believe that in order to achieve the best outcomes, Physical Therapy must be practiced with an unsurpassed approach to customer service... that begins with you.
Our philosophy centers on helping patients receive the maximum benefit from their treatment with emphasis on patient education and injury prevention.
From your initial evaluation to manual therapy, we strive to stay connected to you and the kind of care you receive.
We also welcome you to ask questions. In fact, we expect you will. Below are answers to some of the commonly asked questions.
It all starts with an evaluation. During your first visit, your Therapist spends approximately one hour, interviewing you, establishing goals, testing and examining your condition and setting up a treatment plan. The therapist teaches you about your condition and reassures you about what to expect in the recovery process. Some form of treatment is always included in the first visit.
Subsequent treatment sessions systematically fix the injury, movement disorder and/or pain. The key tool of the therapist is his/her hands-on techniques to stretch and mobilize stiff, misaligned and restricted areas of your body. Once mobility is improved, then exercises are used to restore strength, balance and function. Injured athletes looking to return to sports do sports specific training under the watchful eye of the therapist.
Manual therapy is a collection of techniques in which the PT uses their hands to skillfully mobilize joints and soft tissues. These techniques may be used to alleviate pain, improve mobility, induce relaxation, reduce swelling and improve musculoskeletal function. The use of manual therapy is considered by many PTs to be an important component of evaluation and treatment of spinal disorders.
Physical therapists (PTs) are specialists in restoring movement. PTs receive intensive education in anatomy, physiology, pathology and rehabilitation. It is among the fastest growing professions because of the value PTs provide for our increasingly active society. All PTs are graduates of accredited university programs and licensed by the state in which they work.
