About Physical Therapy
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy promotes prevention, diagnosis and treatment of movement dysfunction to enhance health and function.
Therapeutic exercise and functional training are the cornerstones of Physical Therapist treatment.
Physical Therapy brings motion to life! A physical therapist can help you achieve and maintain mobility and quality of life without surgery or prescription medication.
With extensive education and clinical expertise, physical therapists help you move forward so you can do the things you love to do.
Our services include aquatic therapy and Karen Smith is credentialed in the McKenzie method of diagnosis and treatment of the spine and extremities.
The McKenzie method is based on three steps:
1. The evaluation is a logical step-by-step process to evaluate the patient's problem quickly.
2. Treatment prescribes a series of individual exercises with emphasis on self-treatment.
3. Patients gain a hands-on-knowledge on how to minimize the risk of reoccurrence and to rapidly deal with reoccurrence if it occurs.
