The treatment you receive in physical therapy will depend upon what the therapist finds in the evaluation. Our treatment programs are mechanically oriented with a non-dependent therapeutic approach. Our facilities emphasize mobilization, self-treatment, and therapeutic exercise to go right to the structure and resolve the problem.

If indicated, and if supported by the evidence, modalities can be used.
