Physical Therapy Services at Move Strong
As experts in movement, physical therapists serve as your first line of care when you experience pain, discomfort or injury while training or competing in your sport. A thorough evaluation from a physical therapist will determine what caused your injury, setting an optimal course for treatment, healing, prevention, and performance enhancement.
The spine is our body’s core, so when the muscles and nerves along it are pinched, pulled or twisted, it can stop us in our tracks. Our physical therapy team is made up of experts in spine health. We focus not just on treating pain, but on determining its cause and preventing it from coming back – getting you back to life.
Pre- & Post-Surgery Therapy
Get back to the level of work, play and function you enjoyed before first experiencing the pain and injury that led you to surgery. Get stronger, heal faster and get back to life (and through rehabilitation) more quickly with our physical therapy team at your side. The journey toward recovery can begin before surgery is even scheduled.
Balance / Fall Prevention
Generally speaking, a person’s risk of falling increases as they age. But our physical therapy team will work with you to mitigate many of the factors that often lead to falls – strength, balance, home safety issues, etc. – helping keep you upright, confident and independent for years to come. Start today with a thorough balance assessment.
Move Strong is happy to offer on site aquatic therapy. With access to both a lap pool, as well as a warm water therapy pool, aquatic therapy can offer exercise options to people who may have difficulty exercising on land. Those with chronic pain, partial weight bearing status, and those who have difficulty/inability walking can all benefit from exercising in water. The warm water pool is maintained at 92-94 degrees and both pools have lift access.
Pelvic Floor Health & Lymphodema
Muscles of the pelvic area can be affected following pregnancy and child birth, after prostate disease, or for no apparent reason at all. Sometimes the muscles can be weak, spasming or shortened. Physical therapy for the pelvic floor can help train the muscles to contract more efficiently, as well as release spasming or guarded muscles to decease pain and symptoms of incontinence.
