Services - What to Expect

A comprehensive evaluation designed to identify the cause of your pain and specific dysfunction that is contributing to your symptoms. 

 

 A full one hour examination during which you and your therapist design an individualized treatment program to meet your needs in order to fulfill your goals.  This treatment protocol will address both your structural and functional needs and will be ongoing throughout each of your treatment sessions.  You will be supervised exclusively by one therapist, allowing you to develop a strong patient-therapist relationship that will enhance both your treatment and overall experience.  

 

As structure dictates function, your sessions will address structure through the use of manual physical therapy, which is a hands on approach to restore your structural alignment and in turn reduce pain and improve your tolerance to all of your functional activities.  Functional needs include your ability to sit, stand, walk, run, lift, bend over, lift overhead, get dressed, perform work duties, and engage in sports activities.

 

Functional movement training uses corrective exercise strategies to help improve muscle imbalance, movement capabilities, and decrease the risk of injuries.
