Physical Therapy
Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility - in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.

Physical therapists can teach patients how to prevent reinjury or manage their condition so that they will achieve long-term health benefits. PTs examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

Physical therapists provide care for people in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, outpatient clinics, home health agencies, schools, sports and fitness facilities, work settings, and nursing homes. State licensure is required in each state in which a physical therapist practices.

General Orthopedics

Orthopedic Rehabilitation focuses on problems of the musculoskeletal system - muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons. Orthopedic clinicians diagnose, manage and treat injuries of the musculoskeletal system and rehabilitate patients right after orthopedic operations. At Active Life PT, our clinicians specialize in treating post operative joints, acute injuries due to sporting activities or everyday injuries, arthritis and amputations. 

Orthopedic Rehabilitation is essential to restore the patient's activity, strength and motion right after injury or surgery. Orthopedic patients typically have deficiencies and weaknesses which could be eliminated or alleviated via specific targeted workouts. A specialized clinician will show the patient and teach them the appropriate workouts designed to restore and enhance function and minimize the problems. Orthopedic clinicians are educated about surgical procedures and are able to adapt and adjust their knowledge to treat each individual patient.

Orthopedic rehabilitation programs and treatments include but are not limited to:

     - stretching
     - strengthening
     - balance/proprioception
     - passive stretching and joint mobilizations
     - modalites to decrease swelling and increase circulation                  and healing times
Manual Therapy
Manual physical therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. In manual therapy, practitioners use their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints in an attempt to decrease back pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension, and joint dysfunction.
Neurological Rehabilitation
Neurological rehabilitation is a doctor-supervised program designed for people with diseases, trauma, or disorders of the nervous system. Neurological rehabilitation can often improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of the patient.

Vestibular Rehabilitation is indicated for patients that may be suffering from dizziness, vertigo, or balance problems. Assessment is performed using several tests for eye motion, head and neck motion, and balance. Special maneuvers are administered to address findings as appropriate. 
Phase III and Phase IV is a long term maintenance program--something to follow for the rest of your life. By this point, you probably have developed your own exercise routine at home or at a local gym. You may also continue to exercise at a cardiac rehab center. You may remain under medical supervision during this time, particularly if you have special health concerns. Education about nutrition, lifestyle and weight loss may continue as well as counseling. For best success, make sure your exercise and lifestyle practices become lifelong habits.

Dry Needling
Dry needling - Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling is the use of either solid filiform needles (also referred to as acupuncture needles) or hollow-core hypodermic needles for therapy of muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain syndrome. Dry needling is sometimes also known as intramuscular stimulation (IMS). Acupuncture is a broad category of needling practices with solid filiform needles. Modern acupuncture notably includes both traditional and Western medical acupuncture; dry needling is arguably one subcategory of western medical acupuncture.
