Physical Therapist: We Treat Many Common Injuries
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 team of occupational specialists also services post-operation and outpatient procedures. Our university trained physical therapists will not only prescribe exercises but they also closely guide the patients as they perform them, to make sure form and technique are not compromised and the maximum healing effect is attained during therapy at our clinics.

Back Injury Therapy
Back pain is one the most common pains that bring patients to visit the doctor, miss work, and skip sports. This type of pain is also one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. 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. Learn more about back pain therapy here. Our therapists treat the following types of back pain:
Upper Back Pain
Mid Back Pain
Lower Back Pain
Neck Injury Therapy
Neck pain can be a result of many different conditions like a pinched nerve, soreness from whiplash, or even from just sleeping incorrectly. Most neck pain is NOT caused by a serious disease and there are a variety of clinical tests and prediction rules to determine the most likely cause of the neck injury that will point us in the right direction when deciding the best therapy plan for you. Manual neck injury therapy comes in the form of mobilization of the joints, manual stretching of muscles to obtain mobility and soft tissue massage to improve and loosen spasms without medicine. Our certified medical staff at our clinic can give you relief. Read more about our neck treatment here. Our practice can assist with the following types of neck therapy:
Leg Injury Therapy
Leg injuries are very common in the US population simply because we are largely a sitting society. A lot of time is being spent in a seated position – whether during work, in the car, or when relaxing and socializing – almost all activities are spent in a chair. Over time, muscles of the leg become atrophied from non-use and muscle strength will get gradually reduced, requiring extensive rehabilitation, at our clinic, to improve strength. Our care services specialists at our Hillsboro clinic can help. Learn more about our leg pain treatment here. Our certified specialists offer therapy services for the following types of leg therapy:
IT Band Syndrome
Knee Injury Therapy
A large number of patients in the United States suffer from knee pain. There are many causes for it ranging from osteoarthritis to ligamentous injuries to the bad knee mechanics leading to mal-tracking of joints. The main reason why there is a large number of knee patients suffering from knee pain is largely because the knee does not possess much musculature. Our therapists have rehabilitiated hundreds of total knoww repalcements at our clinic. Read more about our knee pain treatment here. Our medical staff offers therapy for the following types of knee pain:
Total Knee Replacement
Outside of the physical therapy department, we are sticklers for posture and biomechanics. This is crucial when building personalized therapy plans and treating sports injuries, such those from running, and for chronic strain injuries like plantar fasciitis, at our clinic. Just as patients can slowly decondition their tissues from non-activity, you can also hurt themselves during faulty activity. Part of the therapy process at our clinic, our services 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 are doing and we are quickly able to ascertain where the balance of postural habits and poor mechanics have caused or at least played a hand in an injury. One large subset of the population we see in our therapy clinics is postural issues pertaining to the occupational risk of desk work and computer work. With large numbers of patients from across the street at Intel, we can perform ergonomic evaluations and make recommendations for sit-stand desks. During our physical therapy programs, we also take the time to coach our clients on how they should be sitting and standing with proper posture to reduce workplace discomfort and pain.
Common After-Surgery Treatments & Therapy
Surgical repairs have to be given the utmost care and attention for physical therapy to assist in a strong and speedy recovery. 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, 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. Some of the most common surgeries we help people heal from are; Total knee replacements, rotator cuff repairs, lumbar microdiscectomies, achilles tendon repairs, and vertebral fusions. In therapy, 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 pain. Our services include outpatient surgeries as well. Our Physical Therapists are experts when it comes to this delicate balance of benefit and harm. For a thorough physical therapy process, we also make it a point to maintain close communication with orthopedic surgeons and physicians to maximize healing for those that are recovering from surgeries.
