AC Physical Therapy provides a wide variety of Physical Therapy services. Every patient's plan of care is customized to meet their individual needs.
Orthopedic Physical Therapy Treatment
We utilize a variety of PT techniques including joint mobilization and manipulation, myofascial release, soft tissue mobilization, trigger point dry needling, and individualized exercise instruction for strengthening, stretching, motor control, proprioception, postural assessment and gait training to treat patient with injuries in the following areas:
Neck, Thoracic Spine and Ribs, Lumbar Spine, Sacrum, Pelvis, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Hand, Hip, Knee, Ankle, Foot and Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)
This includes Sport Injury Rehabilitation and pre/post surgical care for Total Joint replacements, rotator cuff repair, ACL reconstruction, spinal fusion and many other orthopedic surgeries.
For patients who are in severe pain or are weakened due to an injury, disability, or surgery, aquatic therapy offers the perfect solution to begin treatment. By conducting your care in water you will have greater control over your movement with less pain as your body weight is partially supported by the buoyancy of water, reducing stress on joints and allowing freedom of movement. Plus, the natural pressure of water reduces joint and soft-tissue swelling and provides enough resistance to strengthen muscle.
