Have you been involved in a motor vehicle accident, hurt at work or while engaging in a physical activity? Do you need to prepare for an upcoming surgery or rehabilitate after a surgery? Do you have a medical condition that restricts or ability to move or function normally? Have you experienced pain, inflammation, and loss of range of motion? Then physical therapy may be for you.
Physical therapy often includes individualized treatment routines based on exercise, therapy and pain management. Manual Therapy is hands on therapeutic interventions to deal with fascial tension, tissue adhesions, trigger points, scar tissue, muscle tension and dysfunction. Treatment styles include: soft tissue mobilization (STM), trigger point release (TPR), muscle energy technique (MET), active release technique (ART), myofascial release (MFR) and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM). This form of therapy helps to decrease muscle/fascial tension, decrease pain, decrease scar tissue, improve mobility, improve circulation and increase healing potential in the affected tissue.
Chiropractic Company was designed to provide an ideal environment for healing your body, through physical therapy, chiropractic and massage.
At your first appointment, we will take a thorough history, and evaluation of the entire body including posture and biomechanics, range of motion and joint mobility to find out the cause of pain or disability. We will then discuss treatment options and your goals, so that we can customize a treatment plan catered to you. This session takes about 45 minutes.
Thereafter, each session will last roughly 30 minutes. Most patients will then see their physical therapist for several visits. Just how many visits depends on your needs and progress, and the numbers can vary. Six to 12 visits is usually enough to cover most diagnoses.
Patient success is typically a result of the patient’s commitment to following through with the individualized care plan along with making appropriate lifestyle changes with guidance from your Physical Therapist.
