Physical Therapy (PT)

 

A PT evaluation will assess orthopedic and neurological conditions that have resulted in pain, joint dysfunction, impairments of strength, flexibility, balance, endurance, mobility and posture. 

 

I will create a treatment plan that will address your personal needs using techniques such as ultrasound, heat and cold eStim therapy, soft tissue mobilization, muscle energy and therapeutic exercise. A therapeutic exercise program is very important to the treatment of orthopedic

and neurological conditions and will help reduce discomfort and

optimize mobility.  I will develop your individual rehab program to address your specific needs and goals.

 

Along with individual instruction on your program, we will get you back to work or recreation as quickly and safely as possible. 

 

Custom Orthotics

 

Custom orthotics are inserted into your shoes to reduce or eliminate back, hip, knee and foot pain by balancing your gait with strategically placed support.

 

To fit, I scan your feet with cutting-edge 3D BodyView Scan Technology. This results in a computer-generated image that reveals

We make orthotics to fit in all types of shoes for men and women: 

  • Athletic shoes

  • Running shoes

  • Dress shoes

  • Boots

  • Casual shoes

  • Flip-flops

where the most pressure is occurring on the bottoms of your feet while standing, and the     

      integrity of each foot's three arches.

Based on that scan, the Foot Levelers lab creates a mold and custom orthotics to      support your arches and level your feet more effectively. This supports joints in

your foot, knee, pelvis, spine and shoulders. Additionally, these customized       

   orthotics support proper posture to prevent injury or assist in healing an injury.

    I will create orthotics based on your specific needs:

  • Supportive orthotics for comfort

  • Corrective orthotics that help heal an injury

Therapeutic & Corrective Exercise

When indicated, therapeutic exercise is an important part of a patient's personalized treatment program. During initial and subsequent evaluations, as needed, I will determine which muscles are weak or not firing appropriately, and then prescribe exercises accordingly.

 

  • In-office exercises may be preformed with my assistance, including manual resistance, TheraBand, free weights or a therapy ball.

  • At-home exercises may be prescribed to complement overall treatment.

  • I will advance patients to the next level of exercises based on their progress, which is determined by pain level, strength or activity tolerated.

TheraBand exercises promote strength & stability.

Thermo Stim

 

This soft-tissue mobilization method lets me deliver heat or cold therapy with electrical stimulation (eStim) simultaneously to promote healing and reduce therapy time.

It is non-invasive, and a fantastic complement to manual PT. Patients have been very happy with the treatment, and I'm seeing outstanding results already. 

  • Back & neck pain

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Muscle strains

  • Tendonitis an& tendinosis

  • Nerve pain

  • Adhesions

  • Edema

After an initial PT evaluation, you may schedule ThermoStim-only appointments (30-minutes), or I will incorporate ThermoStim into your regular PT session.

Cupping Therapy

 

I use this alternative therapy when indicated during PT sessions to promote blood flow and facilitate healing. It involves placing small silicone cups over an injured soft tissue area. The cups create suction, which increases blood flow to the area, relieving muscle tension and promoting cell repair.
