Aquatic therapy is physical therapy conducted in the water, typically in a pool under medical supervision. Aquatic therapy is often used as means of physical rehabilitation for patients suffering from bodily limitations that prevent effective exercise on land. An aquatic environment compensates for these difficulties through buoyancy, which supports body weight and movement, hydrostatic pressure, which relieves swelling and joint pain, and temperature optimization, which maximizes circulation and limb flexibility.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Repetitive hand movements, wrist trauma or inflammation from conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes can result in swelling causing compression of the median nerve that results in tingling, numbness, pain and weakness in the hand, thumb, and first three fingers that is known as carpal tunnel syndrome. Mild-to-moderate carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated non-surgically. But if symptoms are severe, your physician may recommend a surgical procedure called carpal tunnel release.
Cervical Discectomy and Fusion
Problems in the cervical spine, such as vertebral fractures or herniated discs, can cause painful pressure on nearby nerves or increase the risk of spinal cord injury. When this happens, the Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) procedure may be recommended to remove one or more discs in the affected area and fuse together adjacent vertebrae.
Dry needling uses thin needles to gently stimulate muscles so they relax. If you have never tried dry needling and are nervous about treatment, our expertise helps minimize discomfort so you can get much needed relief.
Hip and Femur Repair
Hip repair is a surgical procedure to repair and restore strength to the area of bone that has fractured, as well as surrounding soft tissues that may have been damaged from the injury. Hip fractures are classified as:
- Intracapsular: which includes femoral head and neck fractures are within the joint capsule
- Extracapsular: which includes trochanteric, intertrochanteric, and subtrochanteric fractures
Hip resurfacing is a bone-conserving procedure that is an alternative to total hip replacement surgery. The procedure replaces the hip socket in the same way as in hip replacement surgery; however, very little bone is removed from the thigh bone (femur). The head of the femur is resurfaced and covered with a metal cap to fit smoothly in the new socket.
Outpatient Physical Therapy
Outpatient physical therapy is rehabilitative care delivered in a physician’s office or walk-in clinic, rather than at an overnight or residential facility. Like other forms of rehabilitative medicine, outpatient physical therapy is used to help patients dealing with bodily pain or dysfunction. Physical therapy offers an extensive range of healing techniques and activities in a walk-in setting, though patients utilizing outpatient services tend to be more mobile and less constrained by their condition than individuals in the inpatient setting.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a new treatment that uses your body’s own cells to jumpstart the healing process. Unlike medications and cortisone shots, which provide temporary relief, this non-surgical treatment helps you overcome injuries for good.
Shoulder Replacement Surgery
During shoulder replacement surgery, an orthopedic surgeon removes damaged parts of the shoulder joint and replaces them with artificial materials known as a prosthesis. Shoulder replacement surgery usually takes a few hours and may require anesthesia depending on the surgery type performed. Shoulder replacement may include replacement of only the head or “ball” of the upper arm bone (humerus) or replacement of both the ball and the “socket” (glenoid cavity), better known as total shoulder replacement surgery.
Total Hip Replacement
Total hip replacement surgery is a safe and effective way to relieve hip pain that has not resolved with the use of medications or therapy. The procedure replaces damaged bone and cartilage with components made of metal, ceramic and/or high-grade plastic.
Total Joint Replacement Revision
Total joint replacement revision is a procedure to adjust or replace one or more prosthetic components from a previous joint replacement procedure.
Total Knee Replacement
Total knee replacement surgery is a safe and effective way to relieve knee pain when medication or therapy no longer bring relief. The procedure replaces the knee joint with an artificial joint made of metal and high-grade plastic.
Unicompartmental Knee Replacement
Unicompartmental knee replacement surgery is a safe and effective way to relieve knee pain associated with arthritis in only one part of the knee
- Only the damaged compartment is replaced with metal and plastic
- Healthy cartilage and bone, as well as all of the ligaments are preserved
Orthopedic Spine Therapy
Orthopedic spine therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy for injuries or pain originating in the back, neck, shoulders, and/or pelvis. It is non-invasive and is used to treat a variety of medical conditions or as part of a recovery program following surgery. Spine therapy targets the skeletal structure, muscle groups, and intervertebral discs of the spinal column for adjustment, pain relief, posture correction, and functional improvement.
Orthopedic Hand Therapy
Orthopedic hand therapy is a specialized form of physical or occupational therapy for injuries and pain originating in the hands and upper extremities. Hand therapy is used to treat a variety of occupational and sports injuries, as well as to assist patients in post-surgical recovery and with other medical conditions. Hand therapy targets the fingers, wrists, elbow, arms, and shoulders for tissue and joint repair, pain relief, and functional improvement.
