Great River Spine & sport is staffed with Doctors of Physical Therapy at each location. Physical Therapy starts with a thorough evaluation.
This evaluation is where you the patient will verbalize your problems, limitations and goals for improvment. The Physical Therapist will formulate with you the proper treatment options for your individualizes conditions and needs. Each plan starts with simple stretches to minimize pain and increase range of motion. As your range of motion normalizes and symptoms decrease progession into a stability program to help correct the instability and weakness and improve balance is the next step. A good majority of the patients we treat have not only pain, but issues with instability and weakness in the area of pain. Often most of us expect our bodies to perform harder tasks at home and work than our body can handle resulting in breakdown, injury and degeneration of joints over time. It is the goal of our Physical therapy team to not only educate you to the issues and a solution, but to actually take the time and teach you a simple program that you can continue at home.
