Aquatic therapy, or pool therapy, consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water, and is useful for a variety of medical conditions. Aquatic therapy uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance.
Whether you’re recovering from an injury or dealing with chronic pain, you may benefit from a physical therapy procedure called electrical stimulation, or e-stim.
E-stim sends mild electrical pulses through the skin to help stimulate injured muscles or manipulate nerves to reduce pain.
Gait training is designed to regain or improve your ability to be mobile. Your gait is your way of walking. Gait training is different for someone recovering from a musculoskeletal disorder than for someone who recently had a stroke.
Glinn and Giordano Physical Therapy looks at the golf swing from a unique angle—the golfer's body. Based on the idea that a body limitation contributes to every swing flaw, we focus on how a golfer's balance, flexibility, strength, and endurance contribute to or limit accurate, consistent performance.
Occupational / Hand Therapy
This type of rehabilitation therapy is often performed by an occupational therapist for patients that suffer from conditions affecting the hands and upper extremities. Occupational therapists help people in all stages of life participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations).
Heat and Cold Therapy
We treat everything from arthritis to pulled muscles to inflammation with heat and/or cold therapy. Treating pain with hot and cold packs can be extremely effective for a number of different conditions and injuries. The tricky part is knowing which situation calls for hot, and which calls for cold. Sometimes a single treatment will even include both.
Manual therapy techniques are skilled passive movements of joints and soft tissues performed by a skilled Physical Therapist. Physical therapists select, prescribe, and implement manual therapy techniques when the examination findings, diagnosis, and prognosis indicate use of these techniques.
There are up to 8 million people worldwide that are living with Parkinson’s Disease. While there have been great advancements in medication and other medical treatments to help treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, regular exercise is considered a primary treatment in maintaining the highest level of function, mobility and independence in daily life.
Total Joint Replacement Program
Total joint replacement (arthroplasty) is a common surgical intervention that is performed for severe arthritis when conservative treatments are ineffective. The goal of replacement surgery is to relieve pain, improve joint mobility, and restore or improve a person’s ability to safely perform functional activities.
Return to Sport Assessment
This is a question we hear on a regular basis from the beginning to the end of the rehabilitation period. Patients are eager to return to playing sports. While the progress of the tissue healing from the surgery or injury is critical in this decision-making process, there are several criteria at Glinn and Giordano Physical Therapy.
Therapeutic exercise is the systematic performance or execution of planned physical movements or activities intended to enable the patient or client to remediate or prevent impairments of body functions and structures, enhance activities and participation, reduce risk, optimize overall health, and enhance fitness and well-being.
Traction is a form of decompression therapy that relieves pressure on the spine and alleviates pain from joint and muscle spasms. It can also treat herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and many other back and neck conditions.
A small sound head is placed on the problem area combined with gel. The sound head vibrates, sending sound waves through the skin and into the body. These waves cause the underlying tissue to vibrate, which can have a variety of benefits.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy
Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based program designed by a specialty-trained vestibular physical therapist to improve balance and reduce problems related to dizziness. While dizziness can occur at any age, for patients over 75 years of age, dizziness is the number one reason for visiting a physician, and dizziness is a significant risk factor for falls in elderly individuals.
Work conditioning is a program in the field of physical therapy with the goal of returning an employee back to work in a safe manner. The physical or occupational therapist will obtain the patient’s job description and work requirements and assess the physical deficits related to the patient’s injury. A program tailored to the injury and work requirements is then developed to return to the employee back to work with minimal risk of re-injury.
