General Physical Therapy Information
Physical Therapy is often defined as a form of rehabilitative health. Physical Therapists are known for using forms of exercise and special equipment exactly designed to help clients in pain to regain or improve their physical capabilities.
Physical Therapy, or PT, helps to regain a client's capabilities to function by helping to minimize physical damage, disability-related and acquired conditions, and most functional limitations.
Most people who are experience a problem while moving, and it continues to prevent them from performing their daily activities, should pursue physical therapy.
Who Is Physical Therapy Good For?
Our team is comprised of both movement specialists and healers equipped to handle a range of patients. From expecting mothers to injury-prone children, fitness beginners to professional athletes, we work both reactively to heal and proactively prevent injuries.
Physical Therapy is good for all ages! All age groups, from children and teens, to adults and seniors, have to move and function to complete their daily activities. At any point in your life, Physical Therapists are there to help. They want to promote healthy lifestyles, wellness, and most importantly, educate clients on ways to prevent injuries that create a loss of movement.
Physical Therapists are also known for assisting clients in maintaining their health by preventing future deterioration and illness. They can help educate clients on how to make certain environmental adaptations. This allows them to function much more independently.

For Pre- And Post- Natal Therapy
Our physical therapy services for expecting and recent mothers can help improve posture and strengthen your muscles to prevent or relieve the pains and aches of pregnancy. These symptoms include headaches, backaches, and cramps. With strengthening exercises centered around abdominal, lower back, and pelvic muscles, we can help you prepare for your baby’s delivery.
Post-partum therapy is also a crucial element of returning to optimal pre-pregnancy condition. We recommend exercises that restore flexibility in the abdomen and back since the unequal forces caused by weight gain during a pregnancy can mean long-term dysfunction if this isn’t addressed.
Our services can help with cross-training as well as sport-specific movements including, but not limited to, soccer, basketball, football, swimming, volleyball, baseball, tennis, and triathlons. Our physical screenings look for muscle imbalances, tightness, and instabilities that may prevent you from performing at your optimal level. Every athlete knows that prevention is as important as rehabilitation and we educate our patients with proper weight training techniques and corrective exercises.
For Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
A successful operation rarely means that you’ll be fit to walk immediately after. Typically, a patient’s return to optimal fitness depends entirely on a tailored physical therapy program that works to restore health and joint motion. We keep in mind the patient’s comfort and self-esteem while determining exercises that will strengthen muscles and improve flexibility. Gait analysis after an operation is crucial to see if other muscles are compensating for any weakness caused by the surgery. We look to understand every surgical patients needs and guide them towards recovery.
