Stay Healthy with Physical Therapy in Northern Colorado
Our physical therapist prides herself on providing the highest quality wellness and rehabilitation services available. With our coordinated approach to health, you will see results. Our physical therapist has advanced training, deep clinical experience and a compassionate approach to care.
A detailed evaluation allows your physical therapist to determine the root cause of your condition — we don’t just treat symptoms. We take ample time with each of our patients on an individual basis, helping ensure that our rehabilitation services help you recover, even if you have had little success with other providers. We listen intently, work with you and help ensure you get the care you need to improve your quality of life.
It is beneficial to see a physical therapist anytime you experience ongoing muscle pain, joint pain, decreased joint mobility, headaches, or any other musculoskeletal problem. Physical therapy is an excellent mode of rehabilitation for many kinds of injuries, such as a sprained ankle or dislocated knee. It is also wise to consult a physical therapist before starting a new exercise program if you have pre-existing musculoskeletal injuries.
Physical therapists use various methods, such as stretching the joint structures, massage, and exercises to retrain muscles that have stopped working properly. Sometimes treatment may include electrical stimulation to reduce pain or swelling or stimulate a muscle to contract, ultrasound to provide deep heat, and traction to stretch the neck or low back region.
With your active participation, your physical therapist will be on your team, providing you with the tools to recover and stay healthy. We only ask that you follow through with your home exercise program and instructions for the best results.
