We believe that the human body is an amazing creation and is capable of incredible feats!
We also recognize, that due to the broken nature of this world, our bodies are often affected by trauma, injury, disease and dysfunction.
When physical pain, restricted motion, inflammation, muscle tightness or weakness are present, our ability to enjoy daily activities and work suffers. (That’s the sad news…)
Physical therapists believe the the body’s motion and function can be RESTORED through:
- Skillful evaluation of the dysfunction
- Diligent application of a customized treatment plan incorporating techniques that mobilize, stabilize, strengthen, and relax the affected areas of the body
- Educating the patient in proper home management of the condition
Physical therapy (or physiotherapy) usually incorporates manual therapy techniques, progressive therapeutic exercise, appropriate stretching, and a handful of other tools and skills that address the condition’s underlaying cause.
That means that physical therapists actually believe YOU CAN GET BETTER and that you don’t have to succumb to living life in pain and dysfunction. (That’s such happy news you guys!)
One important differentiation in the philosophy behind physical therapy treatment is to properly evaluate the source of patient symptoms. We believe addressing the cause of dysfunction is as equally important as providing symptom relief. This approach ensures the body is properly healed, strengthened and protected against re-injury. That means, we really want THE CONDITION TO GO AWAY & NEVER RETURN.
We hope to provide you with such a great program, that you never deal with this condition again! Unlike, chiropractic care and other eastern based philosophies, WE DO NOT BELIEVE THAT A HUMAN BODY NEEDS TO BE PHYSICALLY MANIPULATED REGULARLY, OR POKED OFTEN to promote healthy bodily function.
Conversely, we believe that if a person lives an active lifestyle, exercises, uses proper posture and biomechanics, eats a balanced diet (dense in macro+micro nutrients, vitamins, and minerals), gets adequate quality sleep, and has a healthy relational support system, then that person is capable of achieving optimal wellness and bodily balance.
Physical therapy uses a direct treatment approach, based on human anatomy and physiology, the musculoskeletal + neurological systems, and human biomechanics.
Physical therapists, along with orthopedic physicians, are considered to be the most knowledgeable about the musculoskeletal system form and function, while PTs are considered to be THE EXPERTS in human exercise and movement.
We look forward to applying our knowledge and expertise to help you realize your return to the life and work you enjoy. We really want you to Feel Good, Move Better, and Be The Very Best that you can be.
