Why Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is an important step to overall wellness. Whether you are a new to exercise or an athlete rehabilitating an injury, physical therapists are here to help. As movement scientists, we are there to determine an individual’s impairments and take this information to formulate a plan to assist them with improved movement patterns.
There is a lot of evidence to support both pre and post-operative physical therapy for favorable outcomes. Individuals, who are treated by a physical therapist prior to surgery, tend to have stronger muscles and more flexibility to the surgical site. This assists with post-operative recovery, where they may be referred to physical therapist for additional care.
Physical therapy after surgery is imperative. There is organized trauma to the surgical site that involves not only the skin, muscles, and tendons but also a connective tissue called fascia. When this happens there are disturbances to the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. Your skilled physical therapist can help detect these disturbances and re-educate the body to correct movement patterns for optimal health and wellness.
What You Can Expect
Please wear clothing that is loose fitting and allows the therapist access to not only the area of pain, but also surrounding areas for a thorough examination.
Typical treatments last about 60 minutes. During this time, individuals are treated for pain management, soft tissue techniques, guided therapeutic exercises, and postural correction with progression to independence with therapeutic exercises.

With medications or surgery, the pain may be temporarily reduced. It takes a professional physical therapist to truly restore and rehabilitate the full function of the human body.

Can Physical Therapy alone treat a condition?
In some cases, physical therapy alone cannot restore a condition. Each condition is unique; some injuries require surgery and medication, followed by extensive physical therapy. Physical therapy is very important after surgery, and should be started based on the surgeons’ recommendations.
Other condition will respond quickly to physical therapy. We have helped many people avoid surgery by resetting their movement’s patterns.
