Bone, muscle and joint problems…
Treated with one-on-one manual care…
To help you feel better, move better & work better.
At OrthoBalance Physical Therapy, we treat a wide range of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, using an eclectic blend of traditional manual therapeutic techniques and contemporary evidence based interventions.
Orthopedic Physical Therapy is a branch of healthcare focused on the neuromusculoskeletal system. Physical therapy plays an important role in the recovery and management of the various disorders and injuries affecting our muscles, bones, and joints. This neuromusculoskeletal system is formed through the connection of bones, ligaments, cartilage, muscle, tendons which are controlled by central and peripheral neural tracts, connections and mechanisms. Each of these structures and mechanisms, however, is susceptible to injury or diseases. Physical therapists use a wide variety of treatments to manage these problems.
During the initial evaluation encounter, we will obtain a full relevant history, perform the appropriate detailed physical therapy evaluation and discuss with you various treatment options and their rationale. This treatment will be based on our physical findings and any recommendations and/or precautions which your medical doctor may have outlined on your physical therapy referral. Patients will routinely receive education about the rehabilitation process. Your medical doctor will receive a full written consultation report containing my findings and treatment plan; progress reports will be forwarded as necessary.
Treatment interventions are designed and carried out by a long seasoned Doctor of Physical Therapy, with clinical and academic experience spanning 3 decades. Personalized, one-on-one care has historically been the identity and face of physical therapy. Having owned and managed large and comprehensive physical therapy centers for many years, my mission at OrthoBalance PT is dedicated to individualized care in a small and intimate setting where the patient can feel comfortable and be the focus of our clinical attention.
