Our comprehensive, cooperative approach is achieving remarkable results, not only relieving immediate pain, but—crucially—reducing the frequency and intensity of future occurrences. The net effect is lower healthcare and rehabilitation costs, less time off from work, more time enjoying family, social and recreational activities, and a higher quality of life.
Low back, neck, and extremity injuries can limit a person’s ability to physically perform. Many times orthopedic injuries are due to poor biomechanics, muscle imbalances, myofascial restrictions, or nerve pain. Physical therapy and rehabilitation services are designed to improve such restrictions and imbalances to reduce pain and progress to meet functional and performance goals.
When acute neck pain occurs, the natural response is to seek relief. The last thing we want to think about is the likelihood of the pain coming back. Unfortunately, research shows that 66% of neck pain sufferers following acute whiplash will have persistent symptoms three months later.

When acute low back pain occurs, the natural response is to seek relief. The last thing we want to think about is the likelihood of the pain coming back. Unfortunately, research shows that 80% of acute low back pain patients will experience a recurrent episode within one year.
Many of the most common extremity strains and pains are due to some type of abnormal biomechanical stress, not only at the location of injury, but somewhere from above and below the kinetic chain. For example, anterior knee pain is often a result of abnormal foot mechanics and poor hip strength. With altered forces from above and below, the knee experiences repetitive loading and stress, resulting in tissue inflammation and injury.
