Additionally, at Spring Forward Physical Therapy, your doctor will determine the reason that injury developed or happened. Our unique approach will address both the resultant painful injury while also treating the reason behind it. This plan of care will ensure a faster recovery that will also provide a higher level of wellness for you than before the injury.

    Physical Therapy For The Neck

    Neck pain has the ability to make everything unbearable. Headaches. Trouble sleeping. Inability to turn your head. Tension when you are sitting at your desk. Referred pain that runs down your arm. We can help. When you come to Spring Forward Physical Therapy, we will assess your neck vertebrae by vertebrae, muscle by muscle to determine how best to get you pain-free. Unlike many PT places, our one-on-one care will allow you the personal attention and manual healing that you need to get better.

    Shoulder Physical Therapy

    Not just a problem for professional athletes. Given that the shoulder has so many degrees of mobility, it is very susceptible to a wide variety of injuries – both traumatic and insidious in onset. Often due to repetitive stresses, shoulder problems are the result of poor mechanics and positioning. Upon evaluation, we will determine why you have your pain and what we specifically need to do to get you to your goals. Many people think the rotator cuff is a capsule in the joint but actually, the rotator cuff is a composition of four muscles in the shoulder that are the primary movers. Those muscles (supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, subscapularis) can be injured in many ways but our plan of care will be based on you. Every injury is different and based on why you are hurt, your body type, age, goals, body type etc. We will form a plan that will be yours and get you well fast. In many cases, we are even able to take a few strokes off your best golf round.

    – Rotator Cuff Tears
    – Shoulder impingement

    Physical Therapy Of The Elbow, Wrist, and Hand

    Elbow pain isn’t just for golfers and tennis players anymore. Many of the injuries to the elbow are frustrating to patients because they don’t know why they have “tennis elbow” when they have never played a match or why they have “golfer’s elbow” when they have never picked up a golf club. However, upon evaluation, we will determine exactly why your pain developed. In fact, often it is a result of too much strength in one compartment leading to a muscle imbalance. We will use state of the art manual techniques to calm the injury and provide proper progressive strengthening and stretches as we use various modalities to augment our treatment. When needed, the use of a brace might be necessary if it’s determined you are positioning your wrist or elbow in a poor position while sleeping.

    – Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
    – Triceps tendonitis

    – DeQuervain’s Tendonitis

    Hip Physical Therapy

    Injuries to the hip come in many forms. Often the result of falls, overuse, deterioration or weakness, pain in the hip can lead to pain at every step and can have little relief when sitting. With more and more patients getting hip replacements, the need for hip wellness starts now. By increasing the hip range of motion through proper mobilizations and stretching – backed up by proper progressive strengthening – we know the recipe for success. Upon evaluation, we will determine how best to create a healing process that is right for you as an individual. Keeping in mind, that the hip doesn’t get the benefit of complete rest due to the fact that you have to walk to get around, our job requires complex considerations.

    – Arthritis
    – Hip replacement
    – Piriformis Syndrome
    – Sciatica
    – SI Joint Dysfunction
    – Labral Tears

    Knee Physical Therapy

    Whether you are an athlete or a seasoned walker, knee pain can limit, alter or inhibit your favorite activity. A runner needs to run. A parent has to play. With many surgeries out there including knee replacements, recovery post-surgery is our top priority to get you well. Post-op patients have shown their willingness to do whatever it takes. We continue that mindset and will go above and beyond for you to get you back to your passion.
    For those of you who are trying to avoid surgery, we will work our best to accomplish that goal. We don’t just focus on what’s damaged. Tears and deterioration don’t necessarily mean surgery. With the proper mechanics and supporting strength, being pain-free is possible. We look at the entire body to determine what individual factors may be contributing and require supportive attention. We never treat a diagnosis; we treat you. And you’ll feel the difference.

    Physical Therapy For The Ankle and Foot

    Did you know that in each foot, there are 26 bones and 33 joints and more than 100 muscles? It’s important to realize that each bone, joint, and muscle is just as important as any other large joint in the body. Decreased range of motion, loss of mechanics or weakness can compromise the integrity of the foot and ankle and increases the probability of pain and impairment. Your physical therapist will assess every joint and muscle and determine what the reason for your pain is. Whether it’s arch pain, bunion pain, lateral ankle pain or heel soreness, we will help to put a plan that’s right for you. Soon you will have that spring back in your step.
