Physical therapy has a wide variety of applications, from athletics to surgery to joint disorders and beyond. Our comprehensive approach starts with a thorough evaluation of your primary issue and secondary protective mechanisms, yielding an optimized treatment tailored to you.
You do not need a doctor referral to see a physical therapist! Most of our patients come in on their own! You know your body best, and we encourage you to reach out directly if you think physical therapy is right for you.
Here at PTP, we offer a wide variety of services. You can click on each to learn more.
ACL/PCL Treatment: an injury that affects most athletes at some point in their careers, ACL and PCL tears are debilitating and painful. Physical therapy is an essential component for getting people back on the field.
Arthritis Treatment: one of the most common joint problems, arthritis occurs with age, as a result of an autoimmune disorder, or both. Either way, physical therapy can help ease arthritic pain and restore mobility.
Balance Fall Prevention
Balance and Fall Prevention: falls are a serious risk for athletes, the elderly, and people in certain occupations. Preventing them saves lives, and physical therapy can help significantly.
Dance is a powerful fusion of both art and sport: it’s the use of highly precise, physical movements to express feeling beyond words. Dancers need a balance of strength and flexibility and their profession pushes their bodies above and beyond. The stress of performance can take its toll on even the strongest dancer.
Dry Needling: a pain relief procedure that focuses on releasing “trigger points” in your muscles through careful insertion of very thin, hollow needles. Useful for injury recovery, chronic pain, and more.
Manual Physical Therapy
With all the advanced equipment available in modern physical therapy, it’s sometimes hard to remember that our best tools can be our own two hands. Manual physical therapy is just that: therapists manipulating your body with no tools except their hands. It’s a vital, foundational component of Physical Therapy Partner’s approach to patient care.
Physical therapy and massage therapy also target different structures. While physical therapy sometimes uses soft tissue work, massage is exclusively focused on soft tissue, specifically skin and muscles. Physical therapy also deals with ligaments, joints, bones, and other body structures, and as a result can tackle some issues that massage cannot: sprains, arthritis, and surgical recovery.
Your muscles are comprised of soft, fibrous tissue, designed to flex with movement. That movement has limitations, and when muscles are stressed beyond their capability, a strain occurs.
Neck and Back
Your neck and back are some of the most complex structures in your body. And as a key component of your posture with a wide range of movement, they are also some of the most used. Naturally, pain in these areas can be quite common and frustrating.
For many instances of neck and back pain, physical therapy can be of significant benefit. Whether you’re putting in work out on the field or in the office, we can help you conquer your pain and get back to doing your best.
A big focus of physical therapy is on proper movement. While traditional techniques help with this, physical therapists are always trying to think outside of the box. That’s why pilates has become an integral and beneficial part of physical therapy at Physical Therapy Partners!
Rotator Cuff Injuries
Rotator Cuff Injuries: the rotator cuff is a delicate assortment of ligaments in your upper arm and shoulder, prone to painful injuries. Physical therapy can alleviate these issues.
