Tip of the Month

 

 

What is physical therapy?

Physical Therapists use physical and educational means to help the patient reduce aggravating symptoms and improve his or her ability to function. Examples of physical therapy include the following:

exercise (i.e. stretching, strengthening, and aerobic exercise)
thermal modalities (i.e. heat, ice, ultrasound)
electrical stimulation
traction
joint mobilization
patient education
fitting for orthotics or knee braces
taping
phonophoresis/iontophoresis

Our Goal

Our goal in patient care is to provide the necessary treatment to minimize pain, improve function, and to instruct and guide the patient toward independent management of his or her symptoms.

We feel successful when the patient:
has minimized aggravating symptoms
is able to function as independently as possible in activities of daily living and/or recreational activities
has the knowledge and tools to avoid further symptoms independently
has taken responsibility for further progress by maintaining a home exercise program
