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 create treatment plans that address personal needs using techniques such as heat and cold eStim therapy, soft tissue mobilization, muscle energy and therapeutic exercise. Therapeutic exercise is important to the treatment of orthopedic and neurological conditions to help reduce discomfort and optimize mobility.

Custom orthotics 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
Orthotics to fit:
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
Therapeutic exercise may be an important part of personalized treatment. Evaluations will help identify weak muscles that are not firing appropriately, leading to treatment options:
Manual resistance, TheraBand, free weights, therapy ball
Progress determined by pain level, strength or activity tolerated
TheraBand exercises promote strength & stability.
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
Tendonitis an& tendinosis
After an initial PT evaluation, you may schedule ThermoStim-only appointments (30-minutes), or I will incorporate ThermoStim into your regular PT session.
ThermoStim for Plantar Fasciitis
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.
