At Suburban Physical Therapy, our team of highly qualified physical therapists work together to provide a high level of personalized, hands-on physical therapy. Our approach enables our patients to achieve the kind of exceptional results that can only come from skill and experience, and the exceptional care we deliver because we focus on your individual goals and progression.
Our physical therapists evaluate and treat post-surgical and non-surgical orthopedic injuries using modalities, exercise, and active manual physical therapy – hands-on techniques to restore movement and function to the bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles. We develop a customized plan of care for each patient, utilizing modalities, exercises and functional training most beneficial to their case, in order to:
- Relieve pain
- Restore function
- Maximize healing
Our physical therapists use modalities such as soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, ultrasound, manual therapy, moist heat/cold, and others. Many of our therapists are trained in the McKenzie method, medical exercise therapy, myofascial release, and muscle energy technique.
Active Manual Physical Therapy
Manual therapy is a term for any hands-on treatment provided by a physical therapist. Our therapists are trained in many different hands-on therapies – massage therapy, strain-counterstrain, muscle energy technique, joint mobilization, shiatsu, joint manipulation, and myofascial release. We complement these hands-on therapies with various modalities and therapeutic exercise.
The Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill® has revolutionized the way physical therapists can help patients recover from injuries or surgery by reducing the body's weight on the lower extremities (limbs). This allows therapists at Suburban Physical Therapy to monitor each patient and build up their strength and stamina and improve their muscle coordination, to help optimize your treatment outcomes and get patients moving again. Click here to see how the Alter-G Treadmill can aid your recovery, help you get moving again, and even improve your performance.
Dynamic “core” stabilization
Used for both postsurgical and nonsurgical patients, dynamic stabilization exercises target the muscles of your trunk – the core that keeps your spine and body stable. They help you stay balanced when you move. If your core muscles are strong and they contract when they should, your posture is better, your body is balanced, your movement is more efficient and powerful, and you are less likely to get injured.
At Suburban Physical Therapy, we believe in every individual’s potential to take charge of their health. Through gentle care and education, our top-notch therapists will guide you through the pain and disability of your sports injury, restore your health and optimize your potential to play and function better. We will teach you how to cope with the sports injury of today. More importantly, we will teach you how to prevent sports injuries tomorrow.
