Personalized Attention to Health
It’s not just a catchy headline. It’s our promise to you! The level of care at Glinn & Giordano Physical Therapy is unmatched, which is why we feel comfortable saying we are the best private practice physical therapy provider in Kern County. It amazes us how often companies forget the roots of their business and try to buy into the latest fads. We guess it’s that old-fashioned with a new-age twist mantra that pushes us to perfect the art of rehabilitative care without the need for all the fancy bells & whistles.
Our goal is to push the envelope of rehabilitative care. We have carefully developed a select group of services that we feel will truly benefit our patients. Each visit will be supervised by a member of our highly trained professional staff and documented according to industry specific guidelines. We encourage our patients to ask questions about the rehabilitative process. Our clinics are not the type of clinics to simply have you run through a series of exercises and leave. We want you to understand what the exercises are and how the effect your recovery.
Pre-Op Total Joint Program – We know the importance of pre-surgery preparation and we know that the patient who is best prepared gets the best results. If you have a 1-3 month wait before your surgery or you are apprehensive about the recovery process, talk to one of our therapists about the pre-op total joint program.
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo – Unique to Glinn & Giordano Physical Therapy is our treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV. When BPPV is present, it gives evidence that the crystals (otoconia) in the inner-ear have migrated into the canal system effecting sensory balance and dizziness. BPPV is common in older patients and is known to relate to problem motions such as rolling over or getting out of bed. Symptoms of BPPV include vertigo, lightheadedness and imbalance. Our specially trained staff uses a series of treatment techniques to realign the otoconia in the inner-ear and reduce the instances of dizziness. Through our treatments patients can often feel results in as little as 1-2 visits.
Industrial Rehabilitation – Employee injuries are a common occurrence, but they do not always have to be costly and time consuming. Our therapists work with employees to increase their muscle strength, endurance, joint motion and decrease pain while aiming to return the patient to work activities in a timely, cost-effective manner.
Occupational Therapy – People often confuse occupational therapy with being only work related injuries, but in reality occupational therapy provides rehabilitation for the hands and upper extremities. The goal of occupational therapy is to provide patients the tools to function in society to the best of their abilities. Unique to Glinn & Giordano is our two Certified Hand Therapists who specialize in the rehabilitation of hand injuries.
Aquatic Therapy – The pinnacle of individualized therapy care. The Aquatrex system uses a submerged treadmill system to reduce weight bearing for patients who require less weight to perform exercises. Once patients using the Aquatrex system are capable, we transition them to ground-based exercises to complete their rehabilitation. This unique feature is great for patients with Fibromyalgia, chronic pain or serious debilitative injuries.
Sports Specific Rehabilitation – We provide rehabilitation for everyone from the little leaguer and high school athlete to the weekend warrior. The goal is to minimize recovery time while enhancing strength & conditioning through proper body mechanics, education and training. Our therapists are often seen on the sidelines of athletic games and sporting events to provide care for injured athletes.
WorkSTEPS – Employment decisions can be one of the riskiest ventures for any business. We are the ONLY provider of WorkSTEPS in the Kern County area. Using established, comprehensive testing methods we put your prospective employees through a litany of work-related tests. Our goal is to protect your company and ensure that prospective employees are capable to safely perform the essential functions of the job. Through our WorkSTEPS program we offer pre-employment screenings, return-to-work testing and annual agility tests. Please feel free to contact us regarding other testing options.
Educational Presentations – Each year our trained professionals deliver numerous speeches to captive audiences on subjects such as injury prevention, nutrition, hydration, balance, injury care and many other topics. To schedule a presentation, free-of-charge, please call Brian Monroe at firstname.lastname@example.org. We make every effort to accommodate requests pending availability of staff, etc.
Coaches Clinics – Since 1986, Glinn & Giordano Physical Therapy, in conjunction with the Superintendant of Schools Office and the Kern High School District, has presented a series of coaches clinics designed to protect the safety of the students participating in school teams or events. This one day seminar provides information to high school level coaches about the legal issues involved in coaching, the dangers of improper supplementation, nutrition, hydration, injury care and concussion recognition.
