Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy

OMPT concerns itself with conservative management of musculoskeletal problems with a predominantly "hands-on" approach and targets the bio-mechanical cause of the dysfunction rather than modality application or exercises only. 

OMPT increases our treatment options for the spine and extremities significantly, including specific joint mobilizations. 
Medical Exercisese Therapy

Medical exercise therapy, a functional approach to rehabilitation, is used to assess and treat patients with injuries and dysfunction  of the neuromusculoskeletal system. the principles of strength, speed, endurance, power, coordination, and aerobic training are applied to achieve specific results. The progressive exercise program is designed to restore normal function through gentle 3-dimensional exercises. 
Golf Specific Physical Therapy

Chris has completed two comprehensive courses: Back to Golf and body balance for performance. This allows us to offer your patients golf specific exercises to improve posture, flexibility, strength, and wing mechanics as related to the physical impairment. 
Works and Sports Specific Rehabilitation 

We have developed work and sports-specific protocols to promote safe and appropriate return to work and sport. The functional protocols use 3-Dimensional exercises resembling the required activities following rehabilitation. 

The use of function-specific home exercises allow the patients to exercise independently at appropriate frequency. 
Home exercise Protocols

Our patients are instructed in an extensive HEP consisting of:
  • Self traction (joint decompression techniques)
  • Flexibility training 
  • Strengthening training 
  • Ergonomic considerations
  • Relaxation exercises 
Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Our staff has extensive experience in rehabilitation following Orthopaedic surgery and the use of function-specific home exercises contributes to the functional outcome. 
Neuromusculoskeletal Rehabilitation

We have the dedication, skills, and the patience to work with all neuromusculoskeletal dysfunctions. 
Pediatrics and Geriatrics 

We appreciate the structural changes in the neuromusculoskeletal system through the ages and the consequences created for the rehabilitation program and the expectations for return to function. 
Myofascial Pain Syndromes

Myofascial pain syndromes including fibromyalgia are challenging conditions welcomed by our staff. We will work int he conjunction the physician and the patient to decrease the pain level and assist in reaching your functional goals. 
TMJ and Cranio-mandibular Dysfunction

In addition to localized treatments of the TMJ, we will consider other area's in our comprehensive approach: the upper cervical and cervicothoracic spine. We consider the fact that a poor posture and increased muscle tension can influence the overall functioning of the TMJ.
