Physical Therapy in North Plains
Stride Strong Physical Therapy provides outpatient physical therapy for patients suffering from orthopedic and musculoskeletal injuries. Our physical therapists are well experienced in treating patients recovering after orthopedic surgeries. We work closely with their surgeons and doctors, making sure that all surgery protocols are adhered to and that our patients make the smoothest progress.
We also treat patients who are avoiding the need for surgery. These include sprains and strains of joints that would benefit from conservative and progressive treatment. We strongly believe that strengthening the body and guiding our patients through muscle adaptation and habit/posture retraining offers the most effective pain relief by way of minimizing strain on injured joints. Strengthening and movement retraining also serves to reduce future injuries.
Stride Strong Physical Therapy boasts a spacious 3000 square foot gym equipped with effective strength training equipment. The clinic is conveniently located across the street from Intel’s Jones Farm campus, just 10 minutes west of North Plains.
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 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. Some of the most common surgeries we help patients heal from are: Total knee replacements, rotator cuff and labral 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.
