Physical Medicine

Physical medicine focuses on treatment, prevention, and diagnosis of musculoskeletal complaints.

We use physical medicine for a variety of acute and chronic conditions including strains/sprains, low back pain, neck pain, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, IT band syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome, and others.

If you have an acute musculoskeletal complaint that is not an obvious medical emergency, we can evaluate it. We will either offer you treatment or refer you to the appropriate specialist.

If you have an obvious medical emergency like a broken bone, head injury, dislocated joint, or extreme pain then go to the emergency room or call 911.

Physical medicine is commonly used in conjunction with our other treatments, including herbal medicine and counseling. Some examples of our services/treatments include:

  • Therapeutic Massage & Manual Trigger Point Therapy

    These techniques may be utilized for muscles that are too tight or in spasm.

  • Muscle Energy Stretching

    This is an assisted stretching technique that can be used for any tight muscles that are contributing to pain patterns and/or poor body mechanics.

  • Structural Integrity Assessment

    We will determine the best treatment approach for achieving optimal alignment in your body.

  • Custom Orthotics

    We can determine if custom orthotics are right for you. We use Foot Levelers brand orthotics because they support all three of your arches, lateral, medial, and anterior.
