Our Proven 4-Phase Recovery Program

PHASE I:

PAIN

It can be frustrating and overwhelming when you’re in pain and don’t know where to turn for help. Our physical therapy experts will work with you one-on-one to identify the root cause of your pain and create a personalized treatment plan that will reduce your pain quickly.

PHASE II:

PRIME

We all know that reducing pain is important, but sometimes it’s hard to stay motivated after the initial relief. It can be tough to keep up the momentum after your pain has subsided. You may feel like you’re stuck in a rut and don’t know how to get moving again. During Phase II, we help you regain your mobility, flexibility, and strength so you can continue on your path to success. With our help, you’ll be primed for future performance and able to prevent injury.

 

PHASE III:

PERFORM

You’ve been sidelined by an injury and you’re eager to get back to your old self as soon as possible. It’s frustrating when you’re injured and can’t do the things you love. Sitting on the sidelines is hard, especially when everyone else seems to be moving on without you. That’s where our physical therapists come in. We’ll help you rehab your injury so that you can get back to your old self as quickly as possible. With our personalized treatment plans and experienced therapists, we’ll have you feeling like yourself again in no time.

 

PHASE IV:

PREVENT

You’ve just suffered an injury and the last thing you want to do is go through the pain again. It’s normal to feel concerned that the injury will occur again. In fact, most people worry about this very thing. That’s why our physical therapists make sure that you are equipped with the tools needed to prevent any future injury. We’ll help you recover quickly and safely so that you can get back to your life as soon as possible.

Treatments

Physical therapy

A thorough exam and interview with a physical therapist make it possible to develop a personalized recovery plan. Once the cause of your pain is identified, your healing journey begins.

Dry Needling

Dry needling has a variety of therapeutic uses. The localized microtrauma from dry needling can be used to bring oxygen to a specific site in a muscle for treatment of a trigger point, a knotted area of decreased oxygen within a muscle that can cause pain.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave or extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a modality that uses high energy pulses of acoustic energy to increase local circulation and breakdown calcifications at the site.

Core Training

Core training is not like a class at your gym. Our limited class size allows the therapist to monitor form and adapt exercises as necessary. Classes are led by a licensed physical therapist to consider any pain or limitations specific to health conditions (i.e. rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, post-surgical, post-therapy, etc.) and make modifications.

Physical Therapy for Dancers

As a dancer, you place high demands on your body on a daily basis, and it is important to properly care for your body. Our Performing Arts Specialists are highly-trained, licensed Physical Therapists with experience and training in dance & performing arts.

Blood Flow Restriction

While exercise is important, there are other treatments such as personalized blood flow restriction therapy. These can give you better results with the same amount of effort (more results from your hard work). After an injury or surgery, it’s normal for your muscles not to look the same.

IASTM

Empower Physical Therapy and Performance uses instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM). This is a manual form of physical therapy. Our physical therapists use special metal or plastic tools to gently scrape and move the skin to reduce pain and inflammation and promote healing.

Joint Mobilization

Joint mobilization involves passive movement of certain joints through the skilled application force, direction, or technique. The physical therapist may use their hands to mobilize the affected joint, or use other tools such as straps to achieve the desired effect.

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a safe, effective and non-invasive treatment method that is used by physical therapists, massage therapists, and athletic trainers. Typically, patients visit a manual therapist when they are experiencing musculoskeletal pain.

Therapeutic Exercise

Physical therapists often use therapeutic exercise in patient rehabilitation. This exercise can help restore muscular and skeletal function, correct impairments, and reduce pain. It also increases flexibility.

Vestibular Therapy

Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT), a specialized type of physiotherapy, is used to treat vestibular disorders. This therapy often includes manual head maneuvers, as well as a progressive program that aims to reduce vertigo, dizziness, visual problems, imbalance, falls, and/or balance.

Neuromuscular Re-education

Car accidents happen every day and those involved may have suffered minor injuries, but if they were lucky, the injuries are not serious. Some may have required physical therapy to recover. What happens if you are in an accident that results in serious and life-altering injuries

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect during physical therapy sessions?

Physical therapy sessions typically involve an assessment of your condition, manual techniques to improve mobility and flexibility, individualized exercises and activities to help you reach your goals, education on how to prevent further injury or pain, and instruction on proper posture, body mechanics and other lifestyle changes.

 

Do I need a referral from my doctor before attending Physical Therapy?

It depends on what health insurance plan you have and the state in which you live! In some states, direct access laws allow patients to be seen without a physician referral. Check with your health insurance company and local physical therapy clinics before scheduling an appointment.

What do I need to wear or bring with me?

You should dress in comfortable, loose clothing that allows you to move easily and doesn’t restrict circulation. Depending on your condition, your physical therapist may also recommend special shoes or a brace. You should also bring any paperwork related to your medical history, including x-rays, ultrasounds, and doctor’s notes.

Is there anything I can do before my appointment to prepare?

Yes! Make sure you arrive for your session well-rested so that you can give it your full attention and energy. It is also helpful if you keep track of how much pain medication (if any) you take prior to the appointment so that the physical therapist can adjust the intensity of treatment accordingly.

How long will my physical therapy sessions last?

Sessions typically last 30-60 minutes depending on your condition and the types of techniques used. Your physical therapist will give you an estimate when you first arrive for your appointment.

Are there any exercises I can do at home between appointments to help improve my condition?

Yes! Your physical therapist may provide specific exercise recommendations for you to try in between visits, which will help speed up your recovery and progress faster toward reaching your goals. It’s important to follow these carefully and always check with your PT before starting a new exercise program if you have any questions or concerns.

What if I have questions after my physical therapy session?

Your physical therapist should be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment plan before and after each visit. You can also contact the clinic directly for further assistance. We want you to get the most out of every session!

Will insurance cover my physical therapy?

It depends on your insurance plan. Most plans cover some or all of the costs associated with physical therapy, but you should check with your provider to determine coverage and any associated fees.

How often will I need to attend physical therapy sessions?

The frequency of visits will depend on your individual goals and condition, but typically it is recommended that patients attend 2-3 times per week for a minimum of 4-6 weeks in order to maximize results. Your therapist will provide more details during your initial appointment.

How long will it take for me to see results?

Every person’s situation is unique; therefore the amount of time needed to reach goals varies. With commitment and dedication from both you and your physical therapist, you can expect to start seeing results within a few weeks. The more positive lifestyle changes you make, the faster your progress will be!

Will my physical therapist be able to answer any questions I have about my condition?

Yes! Your physical therapist should be available to discuss any concerns or questions you have regarding your condition or treatment plan. Don’t hesitate to bring up any issues that may arise during the course of therapy.

What if I feel too much pain during a session?

If at any time during your physical therapy session you experience increased pain, it’s important to let your therapist know so they can adjust the intensity or technique as necessary. Your therapist will work with you to make sure that treatment is comfortable and effective for you

How will I know when I no longer need physical therapy?

Your physical therapist should be able to provide guidance on when it is appropriate to stop attending physical therapy sessions based on your progress, goals, and overall health status. It’s important to listen to your therapist and continue with treatment until they feel you are ready to move on.
