Each patient at the Physical Therapy Institute is evaluated to determine their individual needs and goals. Unique treatment plans are based on a thorough assessment of the underlying movement or neuromuscular problem. Each plan includes home exercises and instruction in functional activities to maximize the patient’s involvement in treatment. Manual therapy and exercise techniques are utilized to address the specific dysfunction identified in the evaluation.
The Physical Therapy Institute addresses many types of orthopedic conditions. Treatments include posture training, body mechanics, joint mobilization, strengthening, flexibility, pain reduction, coordination training, gait training, and correction of faulty movement patterns. Diagnoses treated include back & neck pain, joint pain & dysfunction, post –surgical orthopedic conditions and sports injuries.
About Physical Therapy
The overall vision of the physical therapy profession is to “Transform society by optimizing movement to improve the human condition.” (http://www.apta.org/Vision/). The Physical Therapy Institute is dedicated to this vision.
Physical Therapy can be a less expensive alternative to prescription drugs or surgery. Many conditions can be treated with our conservative approach to care. If surgery is required physical therapy can assist you in preparing you for surgery and returning to maximum function after surgery.
The Physical Therapy Institute believes in an interprofessional approach to care and will work closely with your physician and other health care providers to coordinate treatment.
