Outpatient Physical Therapy
Physical therapists evaluate patients to identify areas of dysfunction. Then, they create a plan of care to address the areas of dysfuction using strengthening exercises and other modalities including manual manipulation. The goal of physical therapy is to reduce pain and to increase function and mobility.
The goal of therapy after auto injuries is to manage pain and restore normal function through exercise, strengthening, manual therapy, and instrument aided manipulation.
Patients are evaluated to identify underlying cause and treated accordingly. They are analysed for balance deficits and given proprioceptive and strength building exercises.
Individuals with gait problems are evaluated for balance deficits and offered exercise to improve form and walking pattern.
Hip and knee replacements
The goal of therapy after hip and knee replacement is to reduce pain, restore mobility and function and return safely to the activities of daily living.
Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a technique used to break up scar tissue and increase circulation. It is performed using small rigid instruments to allow the therapist to better manipulate soft tissue.
Kinesio tape is a stretchy tape applied externally to provide support and optimize biomechanical performance.
Manual therapy is hands-on therapy to mobilize joints and soft tissue and restore proper alignment.
Therapy for people recovering from meniscus tear provides pain relief, edema management to maximize mobility.
Therapy for people with MS includes pain management and learning energy conservation. There will also be emphasis on transfer training and identifying adaptive equipment.
Neck and back pain
Treatment for neck and back pain is focused on reducing muscle spasms, promoting proper alignment and posture and strengthening exercises.
Treatment for neurological disorders is aimed to improve proprioceptive neruo-muscular facilitation, in other words to improve balance, coordination and gait.
Physical therapy is an excellent way to address pain. It is non-invasive, and may offer immediate results, as well as continued imporovement over time. Using manual therapy, electric stim, strengthening exercises, instrument assisted gait training and education on body mechanics.
Parkinson’s patients undergo a postural assessment leading to balance and gait training.
Pulmonary therapy begins with a cardiopulmonary assessment to monitor vital signs and progresses with a graduated exercise program to increase endurance. The program also teaches proper posture and breathing techniques.
Repetitive Motion Injuries
Treatment begins with a biomechanical assessment to address limitations. Next steps include activity modification and strengthening exercises.
Bacharach offers pre- and post-operative theraputic exercises to increase range of motion, decrease pain, and increase strength.
Running injuries might include shin splints, meniscal tears, sprains, strains and poor body mechanics. Physical therapy for runners would address increasing strength and reducing pain, as well as correcting improper ankle and foot alignment.
Bacharach therapist will examine and evaluate the injured athlete to develop an injury specific plan of care. Therapies are designed to improve mobility and range of motion, and reduce pain.
Sprains and Strains
Sprains and strains are among the most common soft tissue injuries. Treatments address reducing swelling and pain, and increasing strength and range of motion.
Stroke patients are evaluated for gait and balance issues. Therapies are designed to improve strength, balance and function.
Neck and back pain
Physical therapy for neck and back pain would begin with a thorough evaluation to determine the area of dysfunction. Next, the therapist would create a plan of care to increase strength and develop proper body mechanics. This would lead to a decrease in pain and an increase in functional mobility.
