Physical Therapy

You have been referred to Physical Therapy.  Now what?

Who we are:

We are college-educated specialists in the care of the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal system. Today's graduates come to you with an undergraduate degree and three years of post-graduate work at the doctoral level. Our therapists are strong generalists who can address the needs of a broad population of patients. Some examples include: the amputee, the worker with low back pain, the post-surgical patient, the person who just had a stroke, those with Parkinson's Disease and the wounded weekend warrior. Among our staff are specialists in treatment of those with orthopedic, vestibular, women's health and sports-specific issues.


What we do:

In the big picture, our mission is to help people to get back to what both what they need to do and what they love to do. We do this by providing our patients with a variety of specifically tailored tools including exercises, conditioning, education regarding posture, movement patterns and anatomy. Often these approaches are complimented by "hands-on" work by the therapist to help improve flexibility in areas that are restricted. We pride ourselves in the use of the best "evidence-based" practice. Our goal is that you leave physical therapy with the knowledge of how to "treat thyself."


Who we see:

We see people from all walks of life ages 12 to 90+. Whether your issue is chronic, the result of an accident or illness, or is work or lifestyle-related, we welcome the opportunity to help you help yourself in the most effective-way possible.


What to expect:

Your first session will consist of a thorough evaluation. Wear flexible clothing. Evaluations include assessment of range of motion, strength, postural alignment, flexibility of joints and muscles, analysis of walking/movement patterns, balance and use of special tests to narrow down the more specific cause of the problem. From this point, you and your Physical Therapist will come up with a plan of care that often includes multiple treatment sessions.
