What kind of treatment will I get?
Out wellness program consists of an in depth evaluation of your current level of fitness and function, examination of your personal goals and development of a progressive fitness program. We offer any level of supervision you may need – from development of an independent program or one on one supervision in our clinic for those who need a little more assistance.
If any serious problems are noted, we will refer you to a physician if needed or initiate physical therapy treatments if warranted. Physical therapists may use a variety of treatments to optimize your performance, treat and prevent injuries. Some treatments include manual therapy, orthopedic therapy, therapeutic exercise and education. We may also use a number of other treatment modalities depending on your condition.
