  • Physical Therapy Treatment Approach

    Each performer has unique needs and goals.  We design individualized therapeutic programs for each patient.  As part of our goal for treatment is to prevent re-injury, we educate performers about posture and body mechanics which requires patients to take an active role in their therapies and adjust behaviors to protect from re-injury.  Our primary examination and treatment method is the Movement System approach to rehabilitation where we work with the patient to restore function of joints and muscles, improve balance and endurance, and restore neuromuscular balance to facilitate performance. 

    All patients will be evaluated for movement dysfunction associated with their injury, including specific movements and technique associated with their performance goals. 

    If you are a musician, please bring your instrument with you to your physical therapy appointment when possible.  If you are a dancer, please bring any shoes needed for your specific style of dance.
