Ever wondered why your body compensates when you can't take that first step in the morning when your feet hurt when you have plantar fasciitis? Or how your gait changes when your knee hurts during running? Or when you're recovering from a fracture and on crutches, you feel lower back pain?
Rehabilitation of extremity disorders including knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand requires an understanding of how these joints interact with each other through kinematic chains and through a global context with the core and the opposite side of the body, and how our brain functions in states of musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
Understanding the many different mechanisms of how we sustain injuries and help ourselves heal from these injuries whether the injury occurs in the joint, muscle, tendon or musculotendinous junctions is integral to the process in physical therapy.
Understanding best treatment approaches using clinical practice guidelines from patellofemoral pain syndromes, impingement disorders of the shoulder and the hips to strengthening programs used in hip labral tears and shoulder dysfunctions, including the management of musculotendinous disorders, we can help tailor your physical therapy needs.
We also believe that employing a current understanding of early weight bearing, early mobility training within the evidenced-based healing time frames and its implication to the rehabilitation of post-surgical orthopedic management of the extremities. So whether you're rehabilitating from an ACL repair to more complicated post-operative surgical procedures, we can help you navigate your success through this important healing process and get you back on track faster.
