Our Therapists Treat Many Common Injuries
Our Doctors of Physical Therapy are experts when it comes to exercise therapy. We believe strongly in the power and healing ability of exercise and strengthening. Too often, in our daily lives, we have been subjected to sitting and sedentary lifestyles that are not conducive to building strong and healthy bodies. Much of the common ailments are actually caused by this inactivity: low back pain, knee pain, and rotator cuff injuries. Our physical therapists will not only prescribe exercises, but, they also closely guide the patients as they perform them, to make sure form and technique is not compromised and the maximum healing effect is attained.
One other aspect we are sticklers for is posture and biomechanics. This is crucial when treating sports injuries such those from running, and for chronic strain injuries like plantar fasciitis. Just as patients can slowly decondition their tissues from non-activity, patients can also hurt themselves during faulty activity. We utilize Video Analysis to record and playback biomechanics during walking, running or even standing. This way we are able to analyze what each joint and limb is doing and we are quickly able to ascertain where postural habits and poor mechanics have caused an injury.
Common After-Surgery Treatment & Therapy
Surgical repairs have to be given the utmost care and attention. Not only do we have to respect for tissue healing time, but the physical therapist must also account for gradual tissue adaptation to exercise. At Stride Strong Physical Therapy, we have several means for reducing surgical pain so the body is better able to heal: we employ the Gameready cold compression delivery system to help with swelling; and we perform various levels of manual therapy to calm muscles down, improve circulation, and decrease scar tissue formation. Some of the most common surgeries we help patients heal from are: Total knee replacements, rotator cuff repairs, lumbar microdiscectomies, achilles tendon repairs and vertebral fusions.
Dosing of exercise progression is also paramount to a patient’s healing continuum: too little and we risk prolonging the rehab phase, too much and we risk aggravating the patient’s pain. Our Physical Therapists are experts when it comes to this delicate balance of benefit and harm. We also make it a point to maintain close communication with orthopedic surgeons and physicians to maximize healing for our patients that are recovering from surgeries.
