Specialized Physical Therapy Treatments
Patients who use physical therapy first for spine, shoulder, and knee pain are often successfully treated without imaging or prescription medication use.
Pelvic Health Treatment
Pelvic health is a primary concern for millions of men and women suffering with conditions such as urinary or fecal incontinence, painful sex, pre- and post-partum, pelvic pain, constipation, coccyx pain, and more. For your comfort, we provide one-on-one sessions in private treatment rooms. Our highly experienced pelvic therapists take an evidence-based approach to deliver solutions, including biofeedback training, that work best for each patient to ease discomfort and improve quality of life. To provide lasting relief, we utilize a holistic approach to strengthen your whole body as well as your pelvic floor muscles. Each treatment plan is tailored to your situation, your goals, and your body.
Pre-operative physical therapy offers proven benefits to patients preparing for surgery. Our therapists will help restore strength and range of motion in your joints, while relieving pain and inflammation that can interfere with the healing process. We believe that the better you feel going into surgery, the better you will feel during your rehabilitation.
After surgery, we will ensure you’re healing the way you should and create a custom therapy program to help you achieve your personal goals and resume your prior activity level . We work closely with your surgeon to implement an appropriate rehabilitation plan based on the surgery technique performed and our years of experience caring for patients. Our effective services are a natural alternative to traditional medication used to alleviate pain, providing you with an extra option when you need relief.
Injuries such as low back and neck pain are one of the most common reasons people seek medical care and can dramatically reduce quality of life. Research has shown that low back injuries recover more quickly when physical therapy is started as soon as possible. Our services are proven to reduce the intensity of your discomfort, improve functional mobility, and restore your sense of control over your symptoms.
Spine conditions are often multifactorial, so we discuss your symptoms, assess your physical condition, identify the underlying cause of your pain, and create an individualized treatment plan. Our physical therapists use advanced, hands-on skills combined with leg and core strengthening to obtain the best outcomes for our patients. Your “core” includes muscles in your trunk and hips that provide a bracing effect on your low back. We’ll help you get back on track to doing what you love, whether it’s swimming, jogging, or running around with the kids.

Manual therapy is the foundation of our treatment approach, and you can expect manual treatment to occur during your therapy sessions.
Vestibular and Balance Training
The vestibular system connects the inner ear to the brain and helps us maintain our balance and proprioception, the body’s ability to sense movement, action, and location. Struggling with balance and coordination increases your risk of falling and sustaining severe injuries, such as broken bones and concussions. We provide customized assessments of your balance, strength, mobility, as well as other health issues or medications that may be negatively impacting your balance.
Lower your risk of injury with our vestibular and balance training designed to help reduce instances of dizziness, improve your overall proprioception, and strengthen your body. We provide these services to keep our patients safer at home or on the go, ultimately enhancing their independence. We’ll help you navigate the complex rehabilitation process and become more confident than ever when standing, walking, or going up the stairs.
Our therapists have completed the necessary training to offer dry needling services to help our patients achieve the absolute best results. Dry needling involves using thin filiform needles strategically placed throughout the body to target tightened muscle fibers, known as trigger points, to ease pain and improve range of motion.
Dry needling is beneficial for many conditions and ailments, including sports-related injuries, arthritis, chronic back pain, tennis elbow, and more. While often compared to acupuncture, dry needling is in a league of its own. It is based on modern scientific study of the musculoskeletal system and focused on eliminating dysfunctions in muscle, fascia, and tendons in order to restore biomechanical function.
