Physical Therapy

Could you benefit from physical therapy?  If you can answer yes to one of the questions below then physical therapy can help you.

  • Do you change how you move because of pain or previous pain?
  • Have you been told by someone to stop doing what you love because it’s bad for your knee/back/shoulder…?
  • Do you have tightness or soreness that you think is “normal” (hint: it’s not)?
  • Have you had your pain for so long that you think it’s always going to be there?
  • Do you want to move better or perform better?
  • Have you modified your exercise or life because of pain or because you think it’s bad for you?

If you can relate to any of these questions, then physical therapy can help.  Whether you were recently injured or have had your pain for months or years, we are here to tell you that there is an answer.  We believe that no movement or activity is off limits to anyone and that the answer is to identify the source of the problem to get you back to doing what you love.  Many of our clients have been told to stop running because of their knee or to stop lifting because of their back. A full physical therapy evaluation will determine what can be done to get you back to your activity that you’ve been missing out on or modifying.

Competition Preparation and Recovery

Are you preparing for or recovering from a lifting meet, a race, or other competition?  We are experts at preparing athletes to perform their best and to recover after competition.  Treatments before competition will be tailored to keeping nagging injuries away as you train as well as developing a plan to peak at the time that you need it for competition.  Treatments after competition will allow you to recover faster and get you back to training as well as address any injuries that may have occurred during training or competition.  

The earlier you contact us the better.  It’s never too early to start planning and preparing a plan for how you will perform your best.

Dry Needling

Trigger Point Dry Needling or Functional Dry Needling is a technique to improve muscle strength, flexibility, tension and function.  It involves the insertion of a small needle into a muscle that has been identified as a problem during your evaluation. While it also involves using a needle, it is not acupuncture, as it relies on a different evaluation, approach and technique.  While it is a great approach for many, if you have a fear of needles or are uncomfortable for any reason, it is not a necessary technique to reach your goals and there are other approaches that will be effective.
