Physical Therapy is the treatment of physical dysfunction and injury using exercise, manual techniques, and modalities to decrease pain and restore function. At Universal Health Institute, we focus heavily on hands-on manual physical therapy techniques, as well as active exercise, to insure that our patients achieve his or her best possible outcome in physical therapy. Physical Therapy at UHI is always one-on-one and our physical therapists employ a variety of physical therapy techniques, including stretching, strengthening, joint mobilization, tissue mobilization, myofascial release, trigger point release, manual traction, suboccipital release, and active exercises. Our physical therapists work closely in conjunction with our other clinicians to insure that each patient's individual needs are addressed each and every physical therapy treatment. Utilizing this approach, physical therapy can be very effective in reducing and preventing pain, improving posture, increasing strength and flexibility, and maximizing a person's athletic performance or everyday function in the community.
During your first physical therapy session, a comprehensive physical therapy examination is conducted. Throughout this initial physical therapy evaluation you are encouraged to discuss the issues that are most important to you and how your current condition is keeping you from achieving these goals. After completing the physical therapy examination, our physical therapist will discuss his findings with you and explain how physical therapy can help you achieve the goals that are most important to you. At this time, you will again have the opportunity to express your priorities regarding physical therapy so that all of these needs can be addressed each and every physical therapy session.
