Orthopedic Physical Therapy

Orthopedic physical therapy is a treatment that focuses on improving the function of an individual’s orthopedic system—those very important muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments.

Individuals who have been injured or are facing the prospect of surgery can benefit greatly from orthopedic physical therapy, as it is a non-invasive, conservative treatment. For those patients who have already had surgery, orthopedic physical therapy can help with recovery. Patients often work with orthopedic PTs after surgeries such as:

  • hip replacement
  • knee replacement
  • knee arthroscopy
  • rotator cuff repair
  • heart surgery
  • cancer surgery

Orthopedic Treatment plans are focused on building strength, flexibility, and range of motion, and can help get patients back on their feet.

Sports Physical Therapy

Sports Physical Therapy is a treatment that focuses on the prevention, evaluation, treatment, and performance enhancement of an athlete. Sports physical therapists, for example, can help athletes move safely in an effort to prevent injuries.
Similarly, they can work with athletes to recover from sports-related injuries such as:

  • Knee injuries
  • Sprains
  • Shin splints
  • Strains
  • Swollen muscles
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations

A well-experienced sports physical therapy can help athletes reach their optimal athletic ability, and return to the sport they know and love.

Neurological Physical Therapy

Neurological physical therapy is a treatment designed for individuals with diseases, injury, or disorders of the nervous system. Physical therapists work one-on-one with patients to improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of a patient. This specialized form of physical therapy can also help patients with balance issues to prevent falls and other potential injuries.

Some conditions that can benefit from neurological physical therapy include:

  • Spinal cord or brain injuries (central nervous system injuries)
  • Stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome

With proper care, patients can learn to live their lives independently again, and can once again enjoy their quality of life.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient treatment used to treat a variety of diagnoses including, cellulite, musculoskeletal pain, post-operative symptoms, and countless others. Therapists put special cups on an individual’s skin for a few minutes to create suction. The suction encourages blood flow—and this increased circulation may promote healing and reduce pain.

Cupping is used to:

  • Encourage the circulation of blood and lymph in the body
  • Addresses stagnation of various materials in the body such as injured muscle tissue
  • Reduce inflammation and lymph
  • Relieve stress and pain
