We offer all services available within the scope of the outpatient physical therapy practice.
Manual Physical Therapy
concerns itself with conservative management of musculoskeletal problems with a
predominantly “hands-on” approach and targets the biomechanical cause of the
dysfunction rather than modality application or
OMPT increases our treatment options for the
spine and extremities significantly, including specific joint mobilizations.
Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy
requires four years post-graduate education including 600 hours of residency.
clinical staff members are enrolled in the North American Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Physical
Therapy. This enables us to provide our patients
with advanced manual therapy techniques and be continuously updated on the
newest PT approaches.
conduct weekly training sessions and patient care meetings with the objective
to improve our functional results and clinician skill level.
Medical exercise therapy, a functional approach to rehabilitation, is used to assess and treat patients with injuries and
dysfunction of the neuromusculoskeletal system. The principles of
strength, speed, endurance, power, coordination and aerobic training are
applied to achieve specific results. The progressive exercise program is
designed to restore normal function through gentle 3-dimensional exercises.
Work and Sports specific Rehabilitation
We have developed work and sports-specific
protocols to promote safe and appropriate return to work and sport. The
functional protocols use 3-Dimensional exercises resembling the required
activities following rehabilitation.
The use of local health clubs allow the
patients to exercise independently at appropriate frequency.
Post surgical rehabilitation
Our staff has extensive
experience in rehabilitation following Orthopaedic surgery and the use of the local
health clubs contributes to the functional
We have the dedication,
skills and the patience to work
with all neuromusculoskeletal dysfunctions.
We appreciate the structural changes in the
neuromusculoskeletal system through the ages and the consequences created for
the rehabilitation program and the expectations for return to function.
We have developed several rehabilitation
protocols tailored to the age of the patient, the prior functional level and
the desired activity level following rehabilitation, including athletic
Myofascial pain syndromes
Myofascial pain syndromes
including fibromyalgia are challenging conditions welcomed by our staff. We
will work in conjunction the physician and the patient to decrease the pain level and assist in reaching your functional goals.
addition to localized treatments of the TMJ, we will consider other area’s in
our comprehensive approach: the upper cervical and cervicothoracic spine. We
consider the fact that a poor posture and increased muscle tension can
influence the overall functioning of the TMJ.
Research has shown that in addition to medical intervention, a
program of weight lifting and cardiovascular training is mandatory to slow
down, prevent or even reverse osteoporosis.
Our role in this process is to perform a thorough musculoskeletal
assessment and design an exercise protocol
tailored specifically for our patient.
If desired and appropriate, patients can incorporate our programs at the local health clubs .
Pre and Post Natal Pelvis / Low Back Pain
Pelvic changes causing back pain in pregnancy is a well-known
problem. Our gentle techniques of joint
mobilization, massage, manual traction and functional exercises will help
alleviate the spinal dysfunction.
Biofeedback protocols along with pelvic floor
musculature exercises are used to strengthen the weak area.
