Our Services

Lymphedema is an abnormal collection of fluid just below the skin. It most often occurs in the arms or legs, but it can occur in other parts of the body as well. Lymphedema commonly occurs when lymph vessels are damaged or after lymph nodes are removed.

Symptoms may include feeling of heaviness, aching, infections and limited mobility. Lymphedema is a disease and cannot be cured, but it can be effectively managed with:

  • Manual lymphatic drainage

  • Exercise

  • Compression therapy

  • Skin care

Our lymphedema therapists have completed additional training for the treatment of primary and secondary lymphedema.

Manual therapy includes skilled, hands-on treatment to diagnose and care for soft tissue and joint dysfunction. Manual therapy may be used to:

  • Reduce pain
  • Improve range of motion
  • Decrease myofascial restrictions
  • Decrease swelling
  • Improve circulation
  • Reduce muscle tension

Manual therapy techniques are just another way we tailor the treatment to your needs.

Orthopedic physical therapy focuses on the evaluation and treatment of muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments and joints. Our clinic treats conditions like:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Hip bursitis
  • Knee instability
  • Stenosis
  • Disc herniations

Therapy generally includes strengthening, flexibility, modalities, and manual/hands on treatment.

Pelvic floor physical therapy addresses pelvic pain, weakness or dysfunction of the pelvic floor muscle group. This type of therapy can help with conditions like:

  • Urinary incontinence or difficulty voiding
  • Bowel dysfunction
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Unexplained pelvic, genital or rectal pain

Therapy can also help restore normal function after pelvic surgeries, childbirth and pelvic cancer treatment. Our specially trained therapists use corrective exercise, biofeedback and manual techniques to help return normal function of the pelvic floor.

The success of surgery greatly depends on the post-operative care. Some of the benefits of therapy following surgery include:

  • Improved mobility
  • Improved circulation
  • Pain reduction
  • Better muscle strength
  • Improved balance
  • Strengthened core

Even though surgery is a stressful time for everyone, having a personalized therapy plan will greatly help the healing and recovery process.

Sports medicine can help you overcome injuries such as:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Runner’s knee
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Shin splints
  • Shoulder tendonitis

It also includes post-operative therapy for ACL reconstruction, rotator cuff repairs and meniscus surgeries. Our therapists work with all levels of athletes, from the casual golfer to the high-level competitive athlete. The therapy evaluates and treats the root cause of dysfunction, helping return you to whatever activity you enjoy without re-injury.

We work with your case manager, adjustor and doctor to help coordinate the best possible care to return you back to work. Physical therapy will initially focus on acute injury while progressing you back to work related and functional tasks. This may include a Functional Capacity Evaluation, work conditioning program, specific work ergonomic training and a job-site analysis.
