Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercise refers to a structured physical activity or movement performed under the guidance of a physical therapist. These exercises are specifically designed to target and address a variety of physical conditions, injuries, or functional limitations. The primary goal of therapeutic exercise is to improve strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, coordination, and overall physical function. It is often a crucial component of a comprehensive treatment plan, helping individuals recover from injuries, manage chronic conditions, regain mobility, and enhance their overall quality of life. Therapeutic exercises are tailored to the individual’s specific needs and are carefully selected and progressed by the physical therapist to optimize therapeutic benefits and facilitate the rehabilitation process.

Manual therapy is a specialized hands-on approach used in physical therapy to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions. Through skilled techniques such as joint mobilizations, soft tissue mobilizations, and manipulations, manual therapy aims to improve joint mobility, reduce pain, restore normal tissue function, and promote overall healing and well-being.

Dry needling is a technique used in physical therapy to address muscle pain and dysfunction. It involves the insertion of thin needles into trigger points in muscles, helping to release tension, promote healing, and improve overall muscle function.

Aqua therapy, also known as aquatic therapy, is a specialized form of physical therapy that takes place in a water-based environment. This therapeutic approach utilizes the buoyancy, resistance, and hydrostatic pressure of water to facilitate pain reduction, improve range of motion, enhance strength, and provide a supportive and low-impact environment for rehabilitation, making it particularly beneficial for individuals with orthopedic or neurological conditions.

These exercises focus on improving body awareness, control, and the ability to react to sensory input, which can be particularly beneficial in sports rehabilitation.

Sport rehabilitation is a comprehensive and specialized branch of physical therapy that focuses on the assessment, treatment, and prevention of sports-related injuries. Through a combination of targeted exercises, manual therapy techniques, sport-specific training, and injury prevention strategies, sport rehabilitation aims to optimize athletic performance, promote safe return to play, and help athletes achieve their full potential in a safe and effective manner.

Post-operative rehabilitation is a crucial aspect of recovery following surgery, aiming to restore optimal function, mobility, and strength. Through a personalized treatment plan that may include exercises, manual therapy, and modalities, post-operative rehab helps manage pain, minimize complications, and facilitate a successful return to daily activities, enabling individuals to regain their independence and improve their overall quality of life.

Electrical stimulation, also known as e-stim, is a therapeutic technique used in physical therapy that involves the application of electrical currents to targeted muscles or nerves. By delivering controlled electrical impulses, it can help relieve pain, reduce muscle spasms, promote muscle re-education, and enhance overall tissue healing and function.

What Our Clients Say

Doctor Laura is the best! After spending 17 years in the US Army the pain in my neck, back and arms had become unbearable. I have had physical therapy other places and and they did not provide the compassionate care and pain relief that I needed. When I 1st showed up I was very against needling due to the pain that I had received in other facilities. I've been going to doctor Laura for over a year now and can't imagine having to take all the pills to obtain the amount of pain relief that she offers naturally. Thank you Dr. Laura.
Katja Schlenner-Sands
Fantastic team, received shoulder adjustments and therapy. Almost back to new, pain relief finally. Highly recommend. Don't hesitate, very compassionate care.

I suffered multiple injuries during my accident. Never thought I would be back in the pool competing in swim ever again. Laura helped me get back into the game and I am now competing within less than 10 months after my accident. I must say, needling is awesome and it works!
