At Goodman Physical Therapy, P.C., each patient receives an extensive evaluation and a treatment plan consisting of manual therapy, therapeutic exercises and modalities. Each one-on-one treatment focuses on decreasing pain, improving range of motion and strengthening muscles to improve endurance and function for a complete return to previous levels of activity.
Initial evaluations are offered and performed within 24-hours of first contact.
Physical Therapy: Musculoskeletal rehabilitation to the extremities and spine for a wide variety of orthopedic conditions and injuries, including arthritis, low back pain, sprains, strains, tears and post-surgical rehab.
Physical Therapy may include but is not limited to: joint mobilization, passive and active range of motion, muscle strengthening, neuromuscular retraining, stretching and soft tissue mobilization.
Modalities that we may use during your rehabilitation: Electrical stimulation, Neuromuscular re-education, Ultrasound and Iontophoresis.
Gait and balance techniques to decrease fall risk or improve stability. These techniques can help improve your base of support, posture, use of assistive devices such as crutches, cane or walker, as well as improve overall mobility during ambulation.
Core Training and Postural Therapeutic programs will help improve muscle strength in your abdominal muscles, back muscles as well as muscles that work with the pelvis.
Our Osteoporosis and Joint conservation program uses low loading exercises to decrease pressure on the joints and help improve their strength and mobility.
Some of the specialties we provide are:
Graston Technique is a form of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) that uses stainless steel instruments to treat tissue dysfunction in muscle, tendon and/or ligaments and restore proper mobility and function to the affected site. In order to use Graston Technique, you must go through training by Graston certified instructors in order to become a provider.
All of our physical therapists are trained and certified Graston Technique specialists.
Myofascial Release is a manual therapy technique that increases soft tissue mobility while decreasing pain by relaxing contracted muscle and other skeletal tissue. This will also improve blood and lymphatic circulation to the area and stimulate the stretch reflex in the muscle tissue.
Kinesiotaping is an elastic therapeutic tape that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.
• Re-educate the neuromuscular system
• Reduce pain
• Optimize performance
• Prevent injury
• Promote improved circulation and healing
All of our physical therapists are certified Kinesiotaping practitioners.
Mulligan Concept Techniques are advanced manual therapy treatments that are designed to increase your range of motion while decreasing pain after identifying the loss of movement and/or mobility. These techniques are:
• NAGS (Natural Apophyseal Glides)
• SNAGS (Sustained Apophyseal Glides)
• MWMs (Mobilizations with Movement)
Sportsmetrics is an ACL injury prevention program scientifically proven to decrease serious knee ligament injuries. This program was designed while studying the female athlete and the increased likelihood of an ACL injury due to a non-contact event. The sportsmetrics program can help any athlete by using neuromuscular retraining principles. This was developed by Dr. Frank Noyes and a team of athletic trainers, physical therapists and researchers at the Cincinnati Sports Medicine facility in Ohio.
We have physical therapists on staff that are Sportsmetrics certified trainers.
We believe that during rehabilitation, the patient should be educated by their physical therapist in order to be able to maintain maximum flexibility and pain-free living long after our work ends. Learn more about our physical therapists.
