How We Treat

Your first visit will consist of an evaluation where your physical therapist will take a thorough history of your problem, perform a physical exam, and determine a plan of care. Your follow up sessions may consist of any of the following based on your individual plan of care:

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy or hands-on treatment is a specialized skill utilized by physical therapists. Manual therapy may consist of soft tissue mobilization (massage), joint mobilizations, traction, stretching, or passive range of motion.


Modalities can be used to increase/decrease circulation, decrease edema, modulate pain, and re-educate muscles after surgery or injury. Modalities consist of tools such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, compression, hot packs, and ice packs.

Therapeutic Exercises

These may include strengthening exercises with resistance bands or ankle/hand weights, body weight exercise, core strengthening exercises, agility exercises, endurance conditioning, balance, body mechanics, postural alignment, soft tissue stretching.
