We are always striving to maintain our five-star rating as a premier integrated facility with all three pillars of services Chiropractic-Medical-Physical Therapy. In order to ensure the patient experience is the best possible, we recommend all our patients be screened by the medical staff to rule out any red flags or other contraindications. It’s good practice and it’s good for improving the patient’s experience and guiding them on their Path to Wellness.
Our Physical Therapy team work closely with the doctors and family nurse practitioner to ensure the patient’s comprehensive needs are met. In addition, our team specializes in several areas which we address below. Our patients receive a personalized treatment plan and the goal is to see our patients learn from our therapists and have successful postural changes and overall improvement within a limited number of sessions.
POSTURAL ALIGNMENT TECHNIQUE
Our specialized physical therapy focuses on postural alignment technique. We would like to see our patients learn from our therapist and have successful postural changes within a limited number of sessions.
First, we will address the initial symptoms causing pain and then we work on strength conditioning through dynamic activities and stretches.
Unique to our clinic is nerve mobilization and nerve injury prevention protocols. Sometimes our patients may not recognize that a source of pain, numbness and tingling in the body can be related to the spine and nerve aggravation. We address the acute issue with the long-term goal being to correct a patient’s posture.
What to expect during treatment:
- Target the symptom
- Correct posture
- Conditioning through postural alignment exercises
Physical therapy along with chiropractic is useful in identifying specific areas that are weak and need to be strengthened and re-positioned. Physical therapy can also be helpful in correcting nerve inflammation/trauma and reducing the swelling, tingling and numbness caused by bulging discs putting pressure on the nerves. Physical therapy combined with massage can increase blood and lymph circulation while breaking up scar tissue between muscles fibers.
PELVIC FLOOR HEALTH
Our Doctor of Physical Therapy specializes in women and men’s pelvic health. This specialty involves improving the pelvic floor and strengthening muscles to help patients with conditions such as diastasis, incontinence, bladder and bowel dysfunction, sexual dysfunction and/or pain. Pelvic health physical therapy can also benefit pediatric patients.

PELVIC FLOOR TREATMENTS
Each patient will have an individual evaluation that will last approximately one hour in a private room. A second person in the room may be requested if that makes the patient more comfortable. All testing will be done within the patient’s comfort zone and the treatment plan is entirely personalized to meet the specific needs of the patient. Generally, patients will attend pelvic health therapy once a week for between six to eight weeks.
Most of the conditions are covered by insurance and we will verify insurance with the patient’s provider prior to the evaluation.
