Blood Flow Restriction
Be the first to experience the latest in muscle recovery and strength enhancement. BFR rehabilitation is a highly effective method that can be used in a diverse population and is becoming one of the most sought after tools in rehabilitation and athlete enhancement alike.
Elite athletes looking to boost their performance or patients recovering from a surgery to regain strength from a disability, BFR rehabilitation may be the best choice of treatment. Currently, BFR rehabilitation is being used by military rehabilitation programs and Professional Sports Teams with proven results. Our treatment professionals use the most advanced and evidence based medical devices on the market.
Leading research has found that BFR use can:
Give you similar results as lifting heavy weights while only lifting 30% of your maximum lifting weight
Show muscle growth in just 3 weeks - rather than the normal 8 weeks
Improve muscle endurance in ⅓ of the time
Enhance protein synthesis in the aging population
Diminish atrophy and loss of strength from sedentary lifestyles or prolonged bed-rest
Increase the body’s natural production of growth hormones by up to 300%
Avoid stress on joints and soft tissue
Provide faster recovery
Allow greater strength gains while reducing overall stress on the limb
Understand the science behind this groundbreaking treatment technique by contacting our certified professionals. Try this FDA approved alternative method of exercise to receive the strength and muscle growth you would see from heavy lifting while using very light weights in a controlled environment.
If you are injured at work and are unable to perform your duties without pain or frustrating limitations, we can help you. We work as a team to develop personalized interventions based on a patient’s needs and goals to allow for a timely return to work. Work simulated treatments may consist of manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and activities, and ergonomics training.
Our L&I Work Conditioning Program uses physical and functional activities related to work to address the specific needs of the worker. This intensive program consists of 1-2 hours of physical therapy 3-5 times per week for 4 weeks.
Our Physical Therapy team tailors the Work Conditioning Program to your workplace needs. We work toward lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, sitting, standing, and walking tolerances that you will need to accomplish in order to return to your job without risking inflammation or further injury.
Vestibular rehabilitation is a therapeutic approach to reduce the effects of impaired balance, decreased equilibrium and dizziness associated with vestibular dysfunction whether they are acute or chronic (such as Meniere’s Syndrome). We develop specific exercise programs to decrease dizziness, increase balance and function, and improve visual motor control.
Motor Vehicle Accidents:
Our trained therapy team will assess the source of functional limitation and direct therapeutic intervention to decrease pain, increase range of motion, and improve strength and motor control. Our goal is to get you back to pain free living and the activities that you love.
Once a patient has been discharged from a hospital setting rehabilitation center, it is common to refer for continued therapy in an outpatient setting. Our patients who need oxygen or suffer from breathing difficulties including emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis, and pulmonary fibrosis can significantly benefit from physical therapy. We implement a plan of care designed to address deficits in breathing and help you overcome your physical limitations associated with your pulmonary dysfunction.
Physical therapy improves your endurance and gives you strategies to be more active with less difficulty resulting in more energy and improved tolerance to carrying out activities of daily living. We emphasize regaining activity tolerance and independence.
Physical Therapy before, during, and after chemotherapy or radiation treatment has great benefits for patients who are battling cancer. Studies have shown that those who have undergone physical therapy prior to their first cancer treatment have an improved tolerance to performing daily life activities. In post-treatment interviews, patients report less pain, higher energy levels, and fewer recovery days needed during courses of cancer treatment than those patients who did not have regular physical therapy.
Our team is committed to working with you to reduce discomfort and maintain as much normal activity as possible. Physical Therapists and their assistants work one-on-one with each patient throughout their entire journey into recovery.
Manual Therapy is a skilled, hands-on approach using techniques to treat neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Manual Therapy is beneficial for decreasing pain, improving joint mobility and increasing range of motion. These techniques are highly effective in treating spinal and peripheral joint issues.
Part of neuro-rehabilitation involves physical therapy that is aimed at recovery from a nervous system injuries. Patients commonly seen, though not limited to, include Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Post-Polio syndrome, and Guillian-Barre syndrome. Our goal is to help you regain your active and independent life by improving mobility and function.
Our Work Conditioning Program focuses on preparing patients for a safe return to work after an injury. The program includes injury specific strengthening and endurance exercises as well as ergonomic training, instruction for proper body mechanics and lifting techniques, and work simulated tasks. We evaluate the whole patient and educate them on strategies to prevent future work injuries.
The SASTM method is a form of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization techniques for treating soft tissue injuries and dysfunction. This leading-edge, non-invasive treatment is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that allow the therapist to stimulate your own capacity for healing when dealing with soft tissue degeneration, fibrosis, or chronic inflammation.
Our Therapist will evaluate your walk and stance to best fit your orthotics. Foot orthotics are fitted shoe inserts that help cushion heel strike forces, support your arch, and provide proper foot and leg alignment. We offer over the counter orthotics or custom fitted orthotics.
Custom orthotics: Individually made using a casting of your foot. These are typically more expensive than over the counter orthotics, but provide greater support and comfort. Some insurances may cover a portion of the expense for custom orthotics.
Over the counter orthotics: Generic inserts designed to fit your general foot type. These are inexpensive and can typically be dispensed the same day your foot is evaluated.
Kinesio Taping is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological, and medical conditions.

Lymphedema is a condition of localized fluid retention and tissue swelling caused by a compromised lymphatic system. People with Lymphedema can be at risk for complications like infection, loss of mobility, and pain. When being treated for lymphedema, your therapist will work closely with you to determine the best course of treatment including:
Manual techniques to decrease swelling
Compression and wrapping techniques to keep swelling from returning
Exercises to activate muscle pumping to facilitate edema decongestion
Education for self-care techniques to manage symptoms after therapy
The benefits of aquatic physical therapy are numerous. The chief benefit is the pool’s variant weight environment with the water supporting between 25 and 100% of total body weight. This alleviates joint stress and pain allowing the patient to move more freely through their exercises and build muscle. The hydrostatic pressure of the water helps reduce swelling and stimulates blood flow. Our Aquatic Therapists focus on each patient’s needs in one-on-one therapy to maximize the benefits of the aquatic environment and help you realize your best quality of life.
