ABOUT 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.
The McKenzie Method
Our therapists are educated in The McKenzie Method of Diagnosis and Treatment of the spine and extremities. This approach fosters patient independence in management of symptoms and education for prevention of recurrence. Many patients respond rapidly to this method of treatment.
In addition to our traditional therapy services, we offer aquatic therapy at the Newport Aquatic Center. Aquatic therapy is an integral part of the recovery process for many of our patients. The buoyancy of the water means less stress is placed on the joints, making movement easier and less painful while still providing enough resistance to improve strength. The water provides a safe place to improve balance and stablity - and build confidence.
We have a licensed massage therapist on staff offering therapeutic massage. Therapeutic massage can help enhance and preserve the increased mobility you’ve gained through therapy. These treatments are beneficial between therapy appointments and after your physical therapy sessions are complete.
