Outpatient Physical Therapy Services

Physical therapists evaluate patients to identify areas of dysfunction. Then, they create a plan of care to address the areas of dysfunction using strengthening exercises and other modalities including manual manipulation. The goal of physical therapy is to reduce pain and to increase function and mobility.

 

Arthritis/Rheumatoid Arthritis

 

Treatments for arthritis include modalities (heat, cold, electric stim) to reduce inflammation, and exercises to increase mobility.

 

Auto Injuries

 

The goal of therapy after auto injuries is to manage pain and restore normal function through exercise, strengthening, manual therapy, and instrument aided manipulation.

 

Balance

 

Patients are evaluated to identify underlying cause and treated accordingly. They are analysed for balance deficits and given proprioceptive and strength building exercises.

 

Gait/Walking

 

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.
