What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy includes activities performed and modalities applied that decrease pain, improve function and rehabilitate nerves, muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Physical therapy is appropriate supportive care to the chiropractic adjustment (spinal correction) as well as for rehabilitation after an injury or after a surgical procedure.
We employ the latest science and research in matching our physical therapy protocols to our treatment programs so that you, the patient, receive what you need to heal quickly and get back in the game or back to your life. We have traditional modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound and muscle stimulation, along with gym balls, balance boards, vibration platforms, Bowflex and Total Gym-type technology and other equipment and yoga mats for core stabilization work. We also employ manual therapy, myofascial and Graston-type therapy. Our doctors are licensed by the State of Maryland to perform physical therapy.
Our office has the convenience of physical therapy, chiropractic, Class IV K-Laser therapy, German BEMER magnetic therapy, Juvent micro-impact vibration therapy, rehabilitation, SpineMED Spinal disc decompression therapy and functional medicine-nutrition, ALL UNDER ONE ROOF.
Is Physical Therapy for You?
Our doctors will diagnose you and then make appropriate recommendations. Often physical therapy of some type is included in our plan for your quick recovery and long-term success. Patients with weak core muscles, injured or healing soft tissue and poor posture will benefit from physical therapy along with their care. The good news is that now you don’t have to go to multiple offices. It’s all under one roof in our Westminster office.
