Occupational Therapy and Hand Therapy
Our occupational therapists specialize in the treatment and rehabilitation of injured upper extremities and may use functional purposeful activities to address or treat the underlying dysfunction. Like physical therapy, the goal of occupational therapy is to restore normal functional use in your daily life. Our occupational therapists are also well trained in hand therapy.
Manual or manipulative therapy is a clinical approach utilizing skilled, specific hands-on techniques, including manipulation and mobilization, to diagnose and treat soft tissues and joint structures. Our physical therapists use manual therapy to:
- Modulate pain
- Increase range of motion (ROM)
- Reduce or eliminate soft tissue inflammation
- Induce relaxation
- Improve contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability
- Facilitate movement
- Improve function
Sportsmetrics™ACL Injury Prevention
Sportsmetrics™ACL Injury Prevention is the first ACL injury prevention program scientifically proven to decrease serious knee ligament injuries in female athletes. ACL injury rates are 2-10 times higher in female athletes than in male athletes.
Despite advances in ACL reconstruction and rehabilitation, some recent studies have reported high failure rates when patients resume sports after surgery. Sportsmetrics™ is a training program for injury prevention and performance enhancement.
Jumping drills are used to teach you to pre-position the entire body safely when accelerating (jumping) or decelerating (landing). You may decrease the likelihood of an injury and maximize your athletic performance.
Vestibular disorders often cause vertigo, dizziness, visual disturbance, and/or imbalance problems. Other problems can also arise that are secondary to vestibular disorders, such as nausea and/or vomiting, reduced ability to focus or concentrate, and fatigue.
Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is a customized exercise-based program primarily designed to reduce vertigo and dizziness, gaze instability, and/or imbalance and falls. Beginning with a comprehensive clinical assessment of your symptoms and how these symptoms affect your daily activities, your physician and therapist will document the type and intensity of symptoms and discuss possible triggers.
AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill
Take your rehab and physical recovery to the next level. Athletes, runners, and rehab patients alike may recover, continue to train, and strengthen – while minimizing stress and potential injuries. You can recover effectively and with less pain after training or competition.
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill elevates rehabilitation and athletic training with exclusive unweighting technology. You can reduce gravity’s impact by progressing between 20% and 100% of your body weight in 1% increments.
Thanks to its precise technology, the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows you to push your physical therapy rehabilitation and training further than ever before. Whether you are a patient or an athlete dealing with lower body injuries, chronic pain, or neurological conditions that inhibit mobility, you can benefit from the AlterG.
Certified Astym® Treatment
Generally, chronic soft tissue problems (muscles, tendons, and ligaments) are due to scarring or degeneration. Our Astym® therapy promotes the regeneration of healthy soft tissues and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or restricted movement.
Certified Dry Needling
For the management of headache, cervical, thoracic, and upper extremity pain, dry needling involves inserting a small needle or needles (similar to acupuncture) into targeted tendons, ligaments, bones, or their connective tissues. This technique is used to improve microcirculation and decrease chronic pain conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
