Diagnosis

What We Do >>

We conduct a thorough examination including the back, hips, knee, and ankle/foot. We determine the root cause of your symptoms to ensure that physical therapy treatment is the best option for you.

How We Do It >>

We examine posture, range of motion, strength, reflexes, sensation, soft tissue mobility, joint mobility, nerve mobility, and functional movements to create a custom treatment plan. We also take into account any imaging that you have had like X-Rays, MRI, CT scans, etc.

Why We Do It >>

Recent research has actually shown that physical therapy is a better option than surgery, pain medication and injections. We can help you avoid unnecessary invasive procedures and tests that cost a fortune with limited effectiveness.

Treatment Plan

We may use a combination of the following
techniques to help you get your life back:

  • Joint manipulation/mobilization to decrease pain and improve ankle motion and movement of the joints in the foot
  • Soft tissue mobilization to reduce muscle guarding and increase mobility especially in the calf
  • Dry Needling to reduce muscular pain and increase the health of muscle tissue especially in the calf and muscles along the front and side of your lower leg
  • Neuromuscular retraining to teach your body how to move in a better way and improve your balance and stability
  • Mobility training to increase flexibility and range of motion in your ankle and foot
  • Strength training increase your calf, lower leg and foot strength
  • Endurance training to improve your capacity to do what you love without pain especially if you’re a runner or athlete
