Reducing or Alleviating Pain

Everything from spinal manipulation to the therapeutic exercises we provide can help to alleviate any sore, achy, and painful soft tissues in the body.

Improving Mobility

One of the main reasons people turn to physical therapy is because certain injuries and disorders have impacted their ability to move and function. Your daily routine might be impacted by everything from carpal tunnel syndrome to musculoskeletal dysfunction and neurological conditions. Physical therapy can provide a variety of unique and custom-designed exercises and treatment options that can improve how your body functions and moves as a whole.

Fall Prevention

If you are considered a fall risk due to age or certain musculoskeletal disorders, physical therapy can also provide you with balance and coordination training to improve how the muscles, ligaments and other soft tissue in the body move and function. By retraining and strengthening certain parts of the body, physical therapy could reduce your risk for falls.

Avoiding Surgery and Drugs

Many people turn to our practice for physical therapy because they want to avoid more invasive procedures such as surgeries and they don’t want to be reliant on strong painkillers such as opioids. Physical therapy provides safe, long-lasting relief from pain without being at the mercy of pain medications. If you’d like to wean yourself off medications, or you are simply looking to avoid them altogether, physical therapy may be ideal for you.
