Acute Low Back Pain Care
If you have experienced low back pain, you are not alone. Approximately 80% of individuals will experience it 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.
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.
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.
Functional Diabetes Program
Our functional diabetes program is aimed at helping provide you with a proper pain-free functional exercise program designed just for you to help control and reduce the effects of diabetes.
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.
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!
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.
