Staying Ahead of Injuries
Most of us are well aware of the fact that getting regular maintenance on our cars keeps them running well and having routine dental appointments keep our teeth and gums healthy preventing costly and/or painful repairs and procedures in the future. Few people are aware of the harm they are doing to their musculoskeletal system by not taking similar preventive measures. Many times you can prevent pain and injuries from happening by seeing a physical therapist before they ever occur.
At Tri-Physical Therapy, our therapists are trained to assess the risks you face and to identify areas of imbalance and restriction of joint, soft tissue and neural structures that set you up for injury and pain in the future. Specific hands-on therapy techniques are used to restore efficient mobility and body alignment. Therapy is often followed by a prescriptive home exercise program to keep you in shape, feeling your best and prevent future painful dysfunctions.
A Fresh Start for Healing
Tri-Physical Therapy examines and treats to restore normal function and relief of pain. From joint pain to headaches, pain can often be addressed through a comprehensive physical therapy program. Our biomechanical examination can determine the source of your pain allowing us to implement a physical therapy program that offers both chronic and acute pain relief.
Pain is often caused by hyper mobility (too much movement) or hypo mobility (limited movement) within the musculo-skeletal system causing an alteration in function, posture and movement. As a result, patients experience dysfunction and discomfort. Through manual physical therapy, our physical therapists return patients to more natural pain free movement through restoring mobility to stiff joints and reducing muscle tension.
Rehabilitation and Recovery
If you have sustained an injury or had recent surgery, the proper rehabilitation is required to recover your full functionality. Functional manual therapy techniques can minimize pain, assist with restoring previous function, improve mobility and ultimately, lead to a full recovery. Manual physical therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. Manual therapy techniques include:
- Joint Mobilization
- Joint Manipulation
- Muscle Energy Technique
- Functional Mobilization
- Soft-Tissue Mobilization
- Therapeutic Exercises
- Body Mechanics Training
The goal of all treatment is to address the cause of the problem and not just the symptom.
