physical rehabilitation
It takes longer for foot injuries to heal because we never stop using our feet!

Don't jump into a new exercise program too quickly; always progress slowly and let your muscles, joints and bones adapt to the new stresses.

Pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Respect what your body is telling you and modify your activity or stop if you are hurting.



Physical Therapy : Life after an injury, surgery, or illness can be painful, even while doing the simplest tasks.  Our physical therapy treatment programs are a custom-designed course to restore maximal function, allowing patients to safely return to life's daily activities.  Our programs treat a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders, and help restore range of movement and function, decrease pain, reduce inflammation or swelling, and increase muscle strength and endurance.

Massage Therapy : Massage therapy is used as a complement to physical therapy to hasten recovery from an injury or exercise.  Massage therapy helps relieve stress and muscle tension/stiffness, provide greater joint flexibility, reduce spasms, cramping or swelling, and promotes tissue regeneration.  Massage also increases the brain's release of endorphins, which reduces pain, reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and increases blood circulation and lymphatic flow.  It is a key part of the rehabilitative process that aids both the body and mind during the recovery process.

Orthopedic Care : Orthopedic physical therapy aids in the treatment of injuries or diseases affecting bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, as well as rehabilitation after orthopedic surgery. After a full assessment by the therapist and consultation with your referring physician and observation of any x-rays, MRIs or other scans, a treatment plan will be designed to treat your specific condition. Treatment focuses on strength training, joint mobilization, and may include hot or cold compresses, ultrasound stimulation, massage and a series of exercises designed to stretch and strengthen the affected area.

Post Surgical : Recovering from surgery can be a slow process.  Although you may be eager to return to your regular activities as soon as possible, you must approach your recovery with care so as not to damage healing areas, or overuse muscles that have either been weakened or are newly active post surgery.  A proper physical therapy regimen will aid in a quicker, healthier recovery after surgery.
