PHYSIOTHERAPY

What is Physiotherapy?

Physical therapy is a specialized discipline that focuses on both assessment and treatment of injury and disease to detect, correct, and prevent ailments/injuries.

Physical therapy encompasses manual therapy, biomechanical examination, and intramuscular stimulation. All these skills aim to achieve a better quality of life through the improvement of joint mobility and physical function. By focusing on the prevention of future injury, physical therapy arms individuals with knowledge of what physical intervention is available to them. Patients will learn how to optimize the body they have so they can achieve and thrive in all their physical pursuits.

At Uthrive, our physical therapists utilize advanced training in a variety of rehabilitative modalities (manual therapy, electro-stimulation, rehab protocols, and acupuncture). Having that variety enables our team to provide you with an innovative and personalized approach to physical therapy, which ensures decreased pain, increased functional ability, and a return to one’s activities as quickly as possible.
