Postural Assessments

Most people are unaware of their posture, yet if you are walking, standing or sitting crooked, all your joints will suffer. Over time, your bad posture can cause injury and chronic pain. A proper analysis for postural deficiencies and an individualized prescription for body realignment can be a powerful tool for conquering pain.

Running and Gait Analysis

Perhaps your style of running or walking has led to your pain or injury. We can observe and assess any abnormal gait and footfall pattern using a video analysis that can assess joint angle and capture still photos with positional vectors while you run or walk on a treadmill.  We then devise a training program to correct the errors. Running without injury is one goal, walking without pain is another goal.

Sports Test and Assessment

Our aim is return our patients better than they have been in years. A sports test measures all the goals of fitness: strength, agility, balance, proprioception, cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, flexibility, power, coordination and accuracy. Once weaknesses are identified, we create a personalized program to return optimum balance and power.

Manual Therapy

Manual Physical Therapy is skilled soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization and/or neural tissue mobilization in order to create mobility, restore tissue health and optimize functional movement. Specific hands-on techniques use pressure, kneading and manipulation to dramatically improve range of motion and healing of injuries all over the body. Our therapists are experts in manual therapy techniques developed from international and American institutions such as the Folsom Long Term Course, Maitland-Australian Physiotherapy Seminars (MAPS), the Institute of Physical Arts (IPA), and many others.

THERAPEUTIC EXERCIES

If you have been injured, whether it is due to a forceful trauma or just wear and tear over time, your body looks for a way to compensate. This compensation leads to imbalances, overuse of an uninjured limb and overall dysfunction. Below are a few videos showing therapeutic exercises. The exercises prescribed are individual to the person and may consist of stretching, strengthening, neuromuscular education, gait training and balance work to name just a few.
