Why see a Physical Therapist?
Physical therapists are movement experts who improve quality of life through hands-on care, patient education, and prescribed movement. Physical therapists can identify, diagnose, and treat movement problems. Pain-free movement is crucial to your quality of life, your ability to earn a living, and your independence
At ProFormance Rehab the physical therapist will take a detailed history, conduct a systems review, and perform tests and measures to identify potential and existing problems. The therapist will observe your movement in space as you perform certain activities including walking, jogging, and stretching to identify impairments and the biomechanical causes of your dysfunction. Joint and muscle dysfunction can lead to compensatory movements and more dysfunction including pain. Identifying muscle and joint imbalances enables the practitioner to treat the cause of your pain by restoring normal muscle length and strength throughout the injured spine or extremity.
At ProFormance Rehab, we are guided by the best evidence-based medicine combined with decades of clinical experience. We collaborate with you to form meaningful and achievable goals and develop a treatment plan that may include highly skilled and expert manual therapy combined with guided functional exercises. Patient education is also a vital part of the treatment process as your rehab doesn't just take place inside our clinic but continues once you walk out the door. At ProFormance Rehab, we prioritize hour-long, one-on-one visits with your Physical Therapist. You won't be pawned off to any helpers or aides.
EXERCISE & TRAINING
Ultimately, functional and sport/activity-specific training are completed to enable you to return to your desired level of activity. You will be educated in exercises that are tailored to your individual goals. We will always instruct you in a home exercise program so you can manage your situation as independently as possible.
