What can Physical Therapy do for me?
Physical therapy uses a variety of techniques to help you achieve your goals. Manual therapy aids in improving range of motion (ROM), strength, motor control, and modulates pain. Some common manual therapy techniques include joint mobilizations, soft tissue techniques, and dry needling. Once you are moving better and with less pain, we use therapeutic and corrective exercises to make these improvements stick and to strengthen them. You also receive an individualized home exercise program to reinforce these principles, help manage pain, and promote healing.
