Physical Therapy

Physical therapists are movement experts who improve quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care and patient education.

Physical Therapists examine each person and then develop a treatment plan to improve their ability to move, reduce or manage pain, restore function, and prevent disability.

Our Physical Therapists treat many diagnosis and movement dysfunctions with unique treatment approach involving Postural Restoration. This approach addresses the underlying issue and postural imbalances to reduce and manage pain, and restore function so that our patients can return to desired life activities.

Postural Restoration

Postural Restoration unlike traditional physical therapy treatments takes a more holistic approach, focusing on identifying common asymmetries within the body that can create neuromuscular patterns that negatively affect muscle function and structural alignment. The Postural Restoration treatment helps works to address the underlying postural patterns to address the root of the problem, and help to prevent it’s reoccurrence in the future.

Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery

We use principles from Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery (PWR!) and our movement assessment to create a program of care just for you. PWR! Is a comprehensive, research-based exercise and wellness program for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. This program helps counteract bradykinetic-type movement, freezing, postural dysfunction and other individualized symptoms associated with Parkinson’s Disease.

Sports Injury

A sports injury is any discomfort that causes an athlete to miss game/practice time, compensate for athletic movements, or hinder performance level. The best time to treat an injury is early, or even before it occurs. Oftentimes injury is a result of poor or hindered mechanics leading to overuse of a specific tissue. Let the Physical Therapists at AYPT help you recover from a sports injury, or correct an imbalance that may lead to one.
