What are the Available Physical Therapy Services?

The physical therapists at Prominis Medical Services offer a wide range of therapies to restore function and decrease pain. Therapies include:

  • Manual Therapy: Manual therapy involves hands-on treatment and active patient participation to improve body mechanics. Muscle activities and joint or soft tissue mobilization are part of this therapy.
  • Neuromuscular Re-Education: Neuromuscular re-education is a way to connect the mind to the body. Biofeedback, verbal, and tactile cues help you establish normal movement patterns and improve body awareness.
  • Balance Training and Fall Prevention: Poor balance and proprioception put patients, especially older patients, at risk of devastating falls. The physical therapists at Prominis Medical Services offer exercises and education to increase independence and reduce fear
  • Therapeutic Training: Your physical therapist may offer specific exercises to help increase your strength, agility, flexibility, and endurance. Use therapeutic training to help you reach your fitness and wellness goals.

Physical therapy helps you retake control of your health. In many cases, physical therapy enables you to avoid or minimize pharmaceutical and surgical interventions.
