At Rehab Without Walls® our Physical Therapists (PTs) are experts in treating
issues that affect one’s ability to move and function.
Individuals sometimes lose the ability to move functionally due to accidents, diseases, the aging process, pain, paralysis, balance dysfunction and/or living situations.
Working as part of an interdisciplinary rehabilitation team, our physical therapists treat individuals of all ages who have sustained injuries or have medical or other health-related conditions that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. They work with individuals to establish realistic goals such as ease of ambulation or wheelchair propulsion, decreasing pain, improving balance to decrease the risk of falls, posture improvement and return to work, school or leisure activities that are important to the individual.
Depending on the individual’s specific needs, Rehab Without Walls therapists may employ methods to help re-educate muscles that have been affected by an injury or treatment to improve motor coordination.
Our team of physical therapists use methods, called modalities, such as ultrasound, functional electric stimulation for muscles, aquatic therapy, and manual therapy to promote proper movement and function.
We are committed to education that enables the individual to continue improving as therapy sessions decrease or end. They educate individuals about ways to take care of themselves or perform certain exercises on their own and help individuals make use of adaptive equipment, such as wheelchairs or orthotic devices to enhance their mobility.
The Rehab Without Walls® team works closely with physicians, individuals, and their loved ones to develop a customized treatment plan to improve their ability to move, manage pain and prevent further dysfunction.
Some of the conditions we treat with physical therapy are:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Brain injury
- Cerebral Palsy
- Multiple Sclerosis
