Physical Therapy Treatment

Your treatment begins with a thorough evaluation of your condition, which may include x-rays and other tests as needed. After a diagnosis, Dr. Dunham will talk with you about what your condition means for you and what you can expect over the next weeks and months.

Depending on your condition we will use a combination of the following physical therapy treatments and techniques:

  • Manual therapy and manipulation to improve connective tissue, muscle and joint function.

  • Stretching to reduce tightness and improve your range of motion and flexibility.

  • Massage therapy or application of deep pressure to injured areas.

  • Motor control training and core stability exercises.

  • Neuromuscular re-education.

  • Supervised exercises in our office and a regimen for home if needed.

  • Heat and/or cold presses along with electrical stimulation, ultrasound and traction to reduce swelling and improve mobility.

  • Education about your injury or condition including: avoiding movements that aggravate your condition, posture guidance and future injury prevention.

We want to get you back to living your life’s potential as safely and quickly as possible.
