A physical or occupational therapy evaluation is the first step in the rehabilitation process. The evaluation identifies areas of deficit, including strength, range of motion and functional abilities. An individualized treatment plan is established which will address areas of deficiency and will work to achieve the patient’s own goals for treatment. Treatment plans may include, strengthening, conditioning, stabilization, mechanical evaluation, diagnoses and treatment, lumbar stabilization, kinetic evaluation, pain reduction/management through the use of modalities (fluidotherapy, electrical stimulation, ultrasound) and manual techniques, restoration of motion and strength through exercise, education, and functional training.
Physical therapy is a specialty in rehabilitation medicine where specially designed exercises and equipment help patients restore their normal physical activities. Physical therapy is advised when the health problems make it hard to move around and make your daily activities uneasy. The therapist assesses and treats varieties of conditions that affect the physical function of adults and children. They are often able to relieve pain and help you to resume daily activities.
Physical therapy can provide relief from long term health problems. Physical therapist may use exercise program, manual therapy, education and other techniques such as heat, ice, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation to provide rehabilitation. They evaluate and diagnose movement dysfunction and treat patients accordingly. Interventions may include therapeutic exercise, functional training, manual therapy techniques, assistive and adaptive devices, equipment, physical agents, and electrotherapeutic modalities.
Physical therapy is recommended for various conditions and they include:
Spine & Joint Conditions
Sports Related Injuries
Other Joint Issues
People who suffer from lower back pain are encouraged to help with their own recovery by exercising and getting physical therapy, but are seldom given the knowledge and tools needed to accomplish this. This discussion will provide a basic understanding of the causes of lower back pain, and discuss appropriate steps to exercise and rehabilitate a painful back. Of course, getting better is only the beginning, since further episodes of back pain are quite common as time passes. Whether suffering from the first bout of low back pain or following extensive treatments or even surgery, the best way for patients to avoid or minimize the severity of recurrences is to rehabilitate the back through appropriate back exercises.
Pre-Surgical Education and Rehabilitation
Your physician may refer you physical therapy prior to your scheduled surgery. The purpose of pre-surgical physical therapy will vary. At minimum, your therapist will discuss your post-surgical precautions and/or restrictions. You may be instructed on how to safely move in bed, get in and out of a chair, and use an assistive device, such as crutches or a walker. You may be given exercises to perform at home in order to maximize your range of motion before surgery. Depending on your needs, you may be seen for one visit or you may be seen for multiple visits before your surgery.
Our goal during your post-surgical rehabilitation is to return you to your prior level of physical function. This includes successful return to your work, recreational activities, and competitive sports.
Our therapists provide one-on-one treatment sessions to closely monitor your progress and will advance you according to your response as well as your physician’s recommendations. We maintain regular communication with your surgeon to ensure your progress matches the rate of tissue healing so that your recovery is optimal.
Your participation in your rehabilitation is critical. On your first post-surgical visit, your therapist will work with you to establish your goals for therapy. Your therapist will review any post-surgical precautions you may have. You will also be prescribed a home exercise program so that you can continue your progress outside of therapy.
Dry needling is a skilled intervention used by physical therapists that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. A trigger point describes a taut band of skeletal muscle located within a larger muscle group. Trigger points can be tender to the touch and can refer pain to distant parts of the body. Physical therapists utilize dry needling with the goal of releasing/inactivating the trigger points and relieving pain.
