Our Physical Therapists & The Injuries We Treat
Our Doctors of Physical Therapy are experts when it comes to exercise therapy and physical health management. Our team of physical therapists believes 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 Doctors of Physical Therapy will not only prescribe specifically-tailored exercises but they also closely guide the patients as they perform them, to make sure form and technique are not compromised and the patient does not put themselves at risk for re-injury. Meet our physical therapists here.
Low Back Pain & Back Injury Therapy
Back pain is one the most common pains that bring patients to visit the doctor, miss work, and skip sports. It is also the major source of the over-prescribed opioid crisis plaguing our nation. Low back pain is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Physical Therapy is intervention is not only non-narcotic, but is a means to help the body move away from harmful habits that cause back pain.
Because of how much we use our backs for almost every activity we do (walking, standing, sitting upright, lifting, carrying) it is no wonder that pain, discomfort, and the health of our spines would cause us to halt most of our activities. Our practice therapists are here to help by guiding patients back to those activities in a calculated and progressive manner. Learn more about back pain therapy here.
Our therapists treat the following types of back pain:
Mid Back Pain
Lower Back Pain
Herniated & Bulging Discs
SI Joint Disfunction
Neck Pain Physical Therapy
Neck pain can be a result of many different conditions like a pinched nerve, soreness from whiplash, or even from just sleeping incorrectly. Our diagnostic tests will point us in the right direction when deciding the best therapy plan for you. At your Physical Therapy session we will provide manual therapy involving massage, stretching, traction and mobilization of joints. Our goal is to regain mobility and to loosen spasms in the neck. Read more about our neck treatment here.
Our practice can assist with the following types of neck therapy:
Postural problems and ergonomic recommendations.
Lower Extremity Extremity Injuries
Lower extremity injuries are very common in the US population simply because we are largely a sitting society. A lot of our lives are spent in a seated position – whether during work, in the car, or when relaxing and socializing. Over time, muscles of the lower extremity become atrophied from non-use and muscle strength will gradually reduce. Then when we climb stairs or participate in sports, ligaments and joints get strained because of the lack of stability.
Our physical therapists can help strengthen targeted muscles and improve alignment. Learn more about our leg pain treatment here.
Common lower extremity injuries we see are:
IT Band Syndrome
Knee Injury Therapy
A large number of patients in the United States suffer from knee pain. It is one of the most common problem we see at our clinic. Knee pain sufferers may have osteoarthritis, ligamentous sprains and mal-tracking of the knee joint. The main solution for all of these issues is to progressively strengthen the knee in a dynamic environment (for e.g. on staircases, uneven ground, squatting, kneeling, jumping, running). Our physical therapists have rehabilitated hundreds of knee patients at our clinic and all have had great success in returning to stair climbing, tennis, travelling, running and other recreational activities. Read more about our knee pain treatment here.
Our medical staff offers therapy for the following types of knee pain:
Total Knee Replacement
Osteoarthritis of the Knee
We are sticklers for posture and biomechanics. We build personalized therapy plans when treating sports injuries, such those from running. We make it a point to watch how our patients move during an activity, honing in on their movement dysfunction and analyzing faulty biomechanics. This can also be applied to non-sports related injuries by way of ergonomic evaluations, walking evaluations and posture analysis.
Post Surgical Physical Therapy
Patients with surgical repairs have to be given the utmost care and attention in physical therapy so they attain a strong and speedy recovery. Our Physical Therapists respect bone and tissue healing time, but also challenge body structures with appropriate, progressive exercise so the patient can return to different activities. Manual therapy is always given in all sessions so any scar tissue, muscles spasms and guarding is reduced.
At Stride Strong Physical Therapy, our therapists have several methods for reducing surgical pain so the body is better able to heal. Our services include performing various levels of manual therapy to calm muscles down, improve circulation, and decrease scar tissue formation.
Common Post- Surgical Cases We Treat Are:
Total knee replacements
Rotator Cuff Repairs
Achilles Tendon Repairs
In physical therapy, dosing of exercise progression is paramount to a patient’s healing continuum: too little and we risk prolonging the rehab phase, too much and we risk aggravating the pain. We are experts when it comes to this delicate balance of benefit and harm and will maintain close communication with your orthopedic surgeon so everyone knows you are on track to full recovery.
