In general, physical therapists provide services that restore function to limbs and extremities, improve mobility and relieve pain. They also work to restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health.
This is the kind of care you can expect with us. Our patients include accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as low-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries and cerebral palsy.
Under our care, we will examine your medical history, then test and measure you strength, range of motion, balance and coordination, posture, muscle performance, respiration and motor function. Next, we will develop a plan for our treatment strategy and its anticipated outcome with you.
Treatment often includes exercise, especially for patients who have been immobilized or who lack flexibility, strength or endurance. Our goal is to improve how an individual functions at work and at home. Depending on the treatment plan we develop, we may also use electrical stimulation, hot packs or cold compresses, ultrasound, traction or deep-tissue massage. Our therapists also teach patients to use devices such as crutches, prostheses and wheelchairs when necessary.
As treatment continues, our physical therapists document your progress, conduct periodic examinations and modify treatments when needed.
