We conduct a thorough examination including the head, neck, and arms. We determine the root cause of your symptoms to ensure that physical therapy treatment is the best option for you.
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.
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.
Recent research has also shown that many people have a labrum (SLAP) tear in their shoulder and never have pain or dysfunction. Our treatment focuses on strengthening the rotator cuff muscles, the scapular muscles, and improving strength in the most painful positions to return to your active lifestyle!
Studies now indicate that conservative care like physical therapy and progressive strengthening is often more effective to treat labrum (SLAP) tears than surgery or more invasive treatments.
