In my practice I combine manual therapy, modalities and exercises which ever benefits my patients the best at a given moment. Physical therapy session is a dynamic process and should be tailored to patient's specific condition at a specific moment of their recovery. My treatment is successful due to accuracy of diagnosis of the underlying problem(s) and application of the appropriate treatment technique. For years, I have been challenged by treating complex cases. Physical therapy usually begins with correcting any mechanical or leg-length asymmetries, utilizing muscle energy therapy, manual and neuromuscular techniques (manual therapy). Modalities (deep oscillation therapy, ultrasound, LASER, functional electrical neuro-muscular re-education of the lumbar dorsal spine musculature, decompression therapy and more) are used as preparatory tools to "get body ready for healing". Stretching excessively tight lumbar and pelvic muscles, and strengthening weak and inhibited muscles addressed via exercises to maintain (achieved through therapy session) structural balance. Most exercises performed on inclined vibrational board Prohabilitator. Core stabilization exercises usually begin in the neutral spine position or a pelvic position to minimize acute pain. Patients are progressed through core stabilization exercises at increased intensity and angle of Prohabilitator and challenging dynamic spinal stabilization, functional positioning as well as balance and proprioceptive activities. If this seems rational to you please call to schedule an appointment for consultation.
