Physical Therapy focuses on restoring and improving motion.
Motion is integral to quality of life. Physical therapists provide care in a wide variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, home health agencies, schools, work settings, and nursing homes.
A physical therapy visit involves an initial and individualized evaluation where an assessment is made about range motion, strength, coordination, proprioception, functional tasks, and neurological motor function. A plan of care is established in collaboration with the patient. Interventions and treatment techniques are used to promote movement, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability.
We will work together to establish a targeted home exercise program in order to facilitate long-term changes. We will advance these exercises in order to safely improve the balance between motion and strength.
Bowenwork melt’s the body’s resistance.
It is a gentle manual therapy technique that addresses the muscle, fascia, and ligaments, causing the muscles to relax, allowing the body to return to a state of balance. It addresses the autonomic nervous system by removing the body from a state of fight or flight due to injury and pain, allowing it to use its inherent capabilities of healing.
I have found Bowenwork to be a profoundly powerful technique that allows the physical therapy techniques I provide to be much more effective.
Bowenwork is safe and appropriate for all ages and for a variety of diagnoses. Personally, I have been receiving Bowenwork since I underwent back surgery several years ago. It has provided me with not only immediate relief from pain when I tend to overdo things, but it has also helped me to address the underlying muscular imbalances inherent in every individual.
Some of the health issues that I treat are:
- Back and Neck pain
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Postural imbalance
- Shoulder dysfunction
- Sports Injuries
- Plantar fasciitis
- Post surgery dysfunction
- Pediatric developmental therapy
- Balance dysfunction
- Gait dysfunctions
