Back and Neck Pain

 

Neck pain and/or back pain are two of the most common referral sources for physical therapy.  Seeking treatment as soon as possible will help get you back to your normal activities quickly.

The source of neck and back pain needs to be examined by a physical therapist. A thorough evaluation by a physical therapist will help to figure out the cause and the treatment to the condition.  It will include asking about how or when your back or neck pain started, an understanding of the type of pain you are having and the activities/movements that you can and can't do.. From there, the physical therapist will perform special tests, procedures and diagnostics to help pinpoint an optimal treatment strategy and describe a treatment diagnosis.

Treatment strategies will include: posture re-education, proper lifting techniques, spinal alignment issues, strength imb alances or deficencies including a weak core and abdominal stabilization issues.  Treatment will be based on both established and newest physical therapy practices, evidence-based practice research and theory. 

 

Shoulder Pain

 

At Elite Physical Therapy, we are familiar with the various ailments that can occur in the shoulder, including: frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis), shoulder joint (glenohumeral joint) sprains and strains, rotator cuff tears and strains, bicep muscle tendonitis and tendinopathies, improper shoulder blade (scapula) function, upper limb impingement and numerous other ailments. And more than treating the pain, we focus on treating the underlying cause


Knee Pain

 

Knee pain can be debilitating. Over time, it may hinder daily activities such as climbing stairs or bending your knees to pick up something off the floor. Knee pain may come from arthritis, degenerative joint disease, meniscal dysfunction, patellar cap dysfunction, weakness/ muscle imbalance or other causes.

We will work with you to develop a plan of care to get you back to your prior level of function and activities as safely and quickly as possible. Treatment strategies include re-training your walk pattern, therapeutic exercises, manual therapy, and modalities (i.e. electrical stimulation, hot or cold packs and ultrasound) for pain relief. So if you want knee pain relief, don’t wait any longer. Give us a call and let’s start treating knee pain together!

Foot and Ankle Pain

 

Our feet and ankles are very dynamic and complicated structures. There are 28 bones, over 30 joints, and over 100 muscles in the human foot! When you stop to think about the highly intricate structure and the great amount of loads we require of our feet and ankles (3 to 6 times our bodyweight loads through the leg during running), it is quite amazing that we go so often without injury!

Foot or ankle pain may be triggered by a ligament sprain or muscle strain, stress fracture, tendonitis, arthritis, nerve irritation, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, bone spurs or other mechanisms of injury. Because there are several potential causes, it is important to have foot and ankle pain properly evaluated by a physical therapist. Our staff is experienced enough to distinguish between all the possibilities and determine the underlying source of your foot and ankle pain. Treatment options vary based on the mechanism of injury and include: soft tissue massage, mobilization and manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, orthotist evaluation (available through outside provider), and modalities for pain relief, when necessary.
