Acute Low Back Pain Care
Approximately 80% of individuals will experience low back pain sometime in their lives. At any given point in time, 1 in 4 people have low back pain that interferes with work, routine daily activities, or recreation. Although it is common, low back pain is often misunderstood and left untreated.
The term “manual therapy” refers to hands-on treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Manual therapy encompasses a broad group of sophisticated techniques performed by hand and by uniquely trained physical therapists. These may include mobilizations or manipulations of soft tissue and skeletal joints. Manual therapy techniques aim to decrease pain and increase function.
Orthopedic Physical Therapy
Orthopedic Physical Therapy is the core of our practice and represents the majority of the services we offer. Physical Therapy, provided by a licensed Physical Therapist (PT), is a medical specialty that focuses on the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular dysfunction. Physical Therapists specialize in anatomy and physiology and are experts in understanding how movement, posture, and function affect the wellness of an individual.
Workers’ Compensation Rehabilitation
Have you been injured at work or on the job? Physical therapy after a work-related injury is one of the most common treatments to restore movement, decrease pain and return to function. We accept workers’ compensation cases and would be happy to help you in your recovery.
Astym® treatment is a therapy that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Astym® treatment is highly effective and even works when other approaches routinely fail.
Chronic Pain Program
Origins of persistent pain are diverse and can include muscle, joint, and/or nerve dysfunction and emotional attachment. In patients with persistent pain, growing evidence supports the importance of central sensitization (increased sensitivity of the central nervous system). In such cases, traditional approaches with Physical Therapy will not be successful, and will in some instances worsen the condition.
Hand Therapy is the specialized rehabilitation of injuries and dysfunction of the upper limb from shoulder girdle to fingertips. It includes evaluation and individualized treatment of conditions due to trauma, post surgical repairs of tendons, ligaments, and fractures, arthritic conditions, as well as repetitive stress or overuse syndromes and nerve compression to name a few.
Lymphedema Management Program
Our certified lymphedema physical therapist will walk you through an effective treatment known as Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT). Effective management of lymphedema is possible through clinical treatment, education, and individual efforts at home.
Motor Vehicle Accident Care
Motor vehicle accidents can have devastating effects on the body. It is not uncommon to see everything from whiplash and fractures to muscle strains and tearing. Physical therapy is important in helping those who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents, as it helps to reduce stiffness and improve range of motion, while also aiding in overall recovery.
Pediatric Physical Therapy
Pediatric physical therapy assists in the early detection of health problems, in addition to the treatment of a variety of injuries and disorders/diseases that affect the muscles, bones, and joints. Treatments of children from infancy through adolescence focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance, as well as cognitive and sensory processing and integration.
Pre & Post-Partum Rehabilitation
The pelvic floor and abdominals go through a lot before, during and after pregnancy which will affect the way we move throughout the day. We at Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy are here to help you return to your optimal function and get you back to doing everything busy moms do!
Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging (RUSI)
Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging (RUSI) is a non-invasive tool that employs the same safe and tested technology used for pregnancy monitoring. This technology dramatically enhances our ability to accurately identify motor control deficits in deep and hard-to-access muscles that are commonly impaired in patients with musculoskeletal problems.
Our Temporomandibular Dysfunction Program focuses on assessment, direct intervention, and patient education. The goal of our program is to decrease pain, improve posture, and maximize function of patients through efficient and effective delivery of outcomes-based physical therapy services.
Vestibular and Balance Rehabilitation
Vestibular Therapy is specialized physical therapy directed at the vestibular component of the nervous system. The vestibular system uses information from the eyes, inner ear and extremities to help keep your body balanced. Sometimes, this information is incomplete or distorted, causing dizziness or a loss of balance. The purpose of vestibular therapy is to restore good communication between these sources of information and the brain in order to allow better balance or improve dizziness.
