Types of Treatment
Types of Treatment
Here are the resources at our disposal to help you feel like yourself again.
The kind of therapy your body needs depends on a number of factors, like your pain, injury, age, and physical fitness level.
We’ll never just give you an exercise program and leave you to figure it out. Instead, we’ll define an individualized plan just for you, and then work with you so that you get the maximum benefit out of the time you put in.
Physical therapy exercises aren’t the type of thing you’ll learn at yoga or with a personal trainer. Often the movements you need to do are tiny and specific—easy to get wrong if you don’t have help.
We’ll use evidence-based interactive teaching, as well as share video examples you can reference later on our proprietary app.
