Physical medicine involves therapies that alter the function and performance of the patient. Emphasis is placed on the combined use of physical modalities; such as heat and cold therapies, ultra sound, electric stimulation, physical training with therapeutic exercises, movement & activities modification, adaptive equipments and orthotics.
Common conditions that are treated by physiatrists include neck and lower back pain, sports injury, musculo-skeletal pain syndromes such as muscular strains and overuse, and fibromyalgia. Chronic pain management is achieved through multidisciplinary approach involving chiropractors, and interventional procedures when indicated.
Physical Therapist Miami Overview
Individuals generally consult a Physical Therapist for the management of medical problems or other health-related conditions that cause pain, limit the ability to move, or limit the performance of functional activities. Physical Therapists evaluate individuals, diagnose conditions, and develop plans using treatment techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability.
Whether your condition is neurological or orthopedic, new or old, our aim is to work to heal your injury and improve your fitness level to avoid future injuries. We accomplish this by using our state-of-the-art rehabilitation and fitness equipment, as well as a combination of manual, traditional and sports medicine techniques.
All of our physical therapy sessions are conducted in a comfortable private room where you can ask as many questions as you need to about your condition or treatment. Once you've completed physical therapy, we provide a program that you can follow at home, or we can create a program for you that can be followed at our fitness center.
