Physical therapy is a healthcare specialty that involves the evaluation, assessment, and treatment of individuals with limitations in functional mobility. 

Many skills are incorporated in physical therapy to help decrease pain, gain strength, and restore range of motion. These may include (but are not limited to):

  • THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE: cardiovascular and strength training, stretching

  • NEUROMUSCULAR REEDUCATION: balance, postural training, kinesiotaping 

  • MANUAL THERAPY: massage, cupping, joint mobilizations

  • GAIT TRAINING: correct walking mechanics, with or without using an assistive device

  • MODALITIES: electrical stimulation, ultrasound, hot/cold therapy

 

 Choosing physical therapy is a conservative first step to consider in managing your condition before turning to surgery or medication. It is an investment that can save you money in the long run, due to decreased overall healthcare costs.  At Optimal Physical Therapy, we accept many health insurances and offer competitive self-pay rates. We will work with you to find your best payment option!
