HOW WE DO IT

Our intervention with you begins with an evaluation and examination.  First, we interview you to find out about your medical and lifestyle history.  We of course want to know why you have come to us and what you would like us to help you with. 

We then proceed to an examination of the "movement system" of your body.  This entails observation of your posture, alignment, and movements.  The therapist will select, with your input, which movements to evaluate.  We also look at various aspects of strength and flexibility.  Tender points may be located.  Once the evaluation is completed, a physical therapy program is set up for you. 

Our physical therapy programs often include exercises chosen for your particular case.  Depending upon the situation, you may also receive such treatments as: massage, joint and soft tissue mobilizations, ultrasound, cold laser,  and electrical stimulation to muscles or nerves.
