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.
Aquatic Therapy is an important tool for use with a variety of patients to accelerate return to prior function. It can be the key to speedy recovery. The pool allows walking and running activities without full weight-bearing and incorporates those activities earlier in rehabilitation.
Blood Flow Restriction Training
Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFRT) is a technique using FDA certified tourniquets/cuffs that safely and intermittently restricts blood flow to a muscle region to improve strength, gain muscle size, improve bone density, enhance recovery, and increase cardiovascular performance. BFRT allows for similar improvements in strength that one would see with heavy weight training, however uses light loads to spare surrounding joints.
Fascial Distortion Model
The Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) is a model of diagnosis and treatment for common musculoskeletal conditions. FDM practitioners use six specific problems or “distortions” in the body’s connective tissue to improve conditions such as pulled muscles, strains, sprains and frozen shoulders. The FDM treatment technique supports pain reduction and improvements in movement restrictions to help patients get back to pain free function.
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.
