A physical therapist is an expert in the physical examination of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular injuries. Your physical therapy begins with one of our physical therapists' evaluating and identifying the underlying cause of your injury rather than merely treating the symptoms.
This philosophy focuses on a detailed biomechanical analysis, which allows us to determine the faulty movement pattern and identify the mechanism of injury.
Based on their findings, the physical therapist will recommend a treatment plan including stretching and strengthening exercises to address biomechanical faults and modalities to address pain, swelling, and inflammation. We also provide extensive patient education, which encourages patient involvement and promotes injury prevention.
