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.
Physical therapy is a key component often missing in the treatment of breast and other cancer patients. Multiple research studies have shown that large numbers of cancer survivors experience ongoing pain, swelling, or impairments in mobility, strength, posture, and stamina that affect their functional ability and quality of life long after their cancer treatments have ended.
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.
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.
Osteoporosis is a preventable and treatable disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue. This causes bones to become thin and brittle. Osteoporosis causes pain, postural changes and increased susceptibility to fracture.1

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.
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.
