Physical therapists are licensed health care professionals who help individuals of all ages maintain, restore and improve movement, activity, and functioning, thereby enabling optimal performance and enhancing health, well-being, and quality of life. Their services prevent, minimize, or eliminate impairments of body functions and structures, activity limitations and participation restrictions.
Our staff consists of highly-skilled therapists with extensive experience in orthopaedics. They can teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so that they can achieve long-term health benefits. They examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability. In addition, our therapists work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness-and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
Your first visit will include an initial evaluation. Your therapist will review your history and perform a physical examination. You may be asked to walk around, sit or stand to measure movements (range of motion) and strength. Be prepared to discuss your symptoms and the factors that worsen or alleviate your pain levels, as this helps the therapist to determine the nature of your problem, your special care and focus.
