Physical therapists understands the mechanics of bones, muscles, and joints. They treat a range of conditions and help you recover from chronic pain or injuries that limit movement and make everyday activities difficult.
While acute care from a healthcare provider is often important in treating chronic joint pain or trauma from accidents or sports injuries, physical therapists are also essential to the process. We provide hands-on therapy, help limit the duration of pain, and get you back to normal daily activities.
Expert Physical Therapy Services at JAG PT
We offer you a wide range of physical therapy treatments.
Physical & Occupational Therapy
An occupational therapist can help you regain the range of motion to perform daily tasks. A licensed physical therapist can work with your joints or back following an injury or to relieve pain due to repetitive motion. Occupational therapy aims to get you back to daily activities without chronic pain.
Sports medicine involves diagnosing, treating, and preventing sports injuries and orthopedic conditions. The goal of PT and AT in sports medicine is to help athletes perform at an elite level after recovering from an injury by undertaking a well-designed and customized plan tailored for the specific motions needed for their sport.
Workplace injuries can come from trauma, repetitive motion, or strains. Falls, lower back pain, and spine conditions are common work-related conditions. A physical therapist can relieve pain and help the patient return to work or prove a disability.
Teletherapy is a convenient alternative to visiting a physical therapy clinic. Teletherapy is a video call where a licensed physical therapist directs the patients in movements and stretches to aid recovery. This treatment option is primarily for mild conditions like sprains, strains, and late-stage post-surgical rehabilitation. Insurance coverage typically includes remote physical therapy appointments.
Education & Injury Prevention
Injury prevention involves stretching, training, and exercise. A physical therapist and athletic trainer can help you strengthen muscles, improve endurance, undertake balance training, and perform therapeutic exercise. Education combined with an exercise program and things like posture training can help patients lead a pain-free, active lifestyle.
Hand Therapy (CHT)
The upper extremities are most prone to injury. A certified hand therapist undergoes special training to help patients who have injuries or need postoperative rehabilitation. They work on pain management, grip, movement, flexibility, and other issues with complex hand injuries and simple fingertip injuries.
There is also a wide range of specialized physical therapy services. The comprehensive care at JAG Physical Therapy centers includes treatments that are not common to other physical therapy clinics. For example:
- Graston technique is a soft-tissue manual therapy service to break down scar tissue.
- The Schroth method is a spine therapy that deals with unnatural curvature in the back.
- Women's health services address muscular-skeletal issues that are specific to women's bodies, such as postnatal issues.
- We can tackle pelvic health concerns that affect a variety of different bodily systems, using specialized methods from pelvic floor therapy and exercises to biofeedback and more.
PT at Home
When the patient cannot leave their house, it is easier for the licensed therapist to come to them. Physical therapists can bring all the necessary equipment with them to the patient's house. Also, a provider can help ensure that the patient's insurance covers the physical therapy treatment.
