What makes Physical Therapyworks different?
Physical Therapyworks is proud to base both our Examinations and our Treatment Plans on the best available evidence. This means the best research, our clinical experiences, and patient preferences.
Once your examination is complete and we arrive at a PT diagnosis, we collaborate with you to create a plan of care, once again based on the best available evidence.
Your plan of care may include one or more of the following treatments, and as you progress your plan will evolve and progress as well.
Many types and grades ranging from traditional joint mobilization and manipulation, to isometric and "muscle energy" techniques, HVLA and many more.
Manual physical therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. In manual therapy, practitioners use their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints in an attempt to decrease pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension, and joint dysfunction.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization
The Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) approach provides functional tools to assess and activate the intrinsic spinal stabilizers in order to optimize the movement system for both pre‐habilitation and rehabilitation of athletic injuries and performance.
Types of Treatment
Video Movement Analysis
A slow motion and freeze frame video capture is used to assist your Physical Therapists in movement analysis.
Bodyweight Resistance Training
Bodyweight exercises are a type of strength-training where you use your own weight to provide resistance against gravity. When you complete a bodyweight workout, you are essentially using your body alone without any other exercise equipment
Functional Range Conditioning
Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) is a system of training to help acquire and maintain functional mobility, and articular (joint) resilience, health and longevity.
Electromyography through M-Trigger
Research grade surface electromyography can help educate patients about overuse and underuse of muscles. This can lead to quicker and more effective correction of muscle imbalances and improve outcomes in a great variety of conditions.
Strength Testing by MicroFet
A MicroFet device is a wireless, state-of-the-art, diagnostic and evaluation tool that provides objective, reliable, and quantifiable muscle strength measurements.
The K-Pulley 2 is the state of the art in flywheel training, which is used for eccentric strengthening and training. Eccentric strengthening is used for many reasons, ranging from activating the posterior chain, to improving athletic performance, to healing tendons and improve their strength, and more.
Shoulder Sphere Strengthening
Invented by an orthopedic surgeon, the shoulder sphere is effective at specifically strengthening the rotator cuff in a functional and multidirectional manner.
Blood Flow Restriction Training
Blood flow restriction (BFR) is a training method that partially restricts arterial inflow and fully restricts venous outflow in working muscles during exercise. Essentially the body is tricked into thinking it is in an anaerobic state, and in turn increased strength gains can be achieved even while using low loads. This is useful in many stages ranging from prehab to rehab to performance training.
Fitlight helps improve reaction time, mental accuracy, sensory processing, and other neurocognitive attributes to improve all aspects of human performance.
Self-Care is not designed to be a substitute for medical advice, or physical therapy treatment, for that matter. The essence of any good medical or physical therapy treatment is that it is based on a comprehensive evaluation, which includes an interview, a medical history, and appropriate objective tests. Treatments are planned based on the results of this initial evaluation, and treatments will vary from session to session based on an ongoing evaluation. We recommend that you see a qualified health care professional for an evaluation and a customized treatment plan, and use these tips to supplement and optimize your physical therapy sessions.
We're sticking to the basics (posture, breathing, biomechanics, ergonomics, thoughts & thought viruses), because the basics are what are required in order to build a foundation of good health. We're also sticking to the basics because these are things that you can do for yourself, take little or no time, and are free!
