What Can You Expect At Max Effort Physical Therapy?
Initial Evaluation: We perform a thorough, full body evaluation for all of the clients we care for. All of the activities you perform utilize multiple joints simultaneously and our assessment is no different. At this time we will also discus your goals for PT, whether it be to return to running marathons, or go to work each day without pain.
Modalities: Those in acute pain from surgery or a recent injury may receive electrical stimulation and thermotherapy to help alleviate symptoms for activity participation. We encourage clients with manageable symptoms to begin treatment sessions with a dynamic warm up such as stationary cycling.
Manual Therapy- Is a therapist driven, hands on approach to treating soft tissue and joint dysfunction. Research has shown that assisted joint mobilization helps decrease pain perception and the active releasing of soft tissue reduces movement restrictions. We also educate all of our clients in self-directed active stretching to increase blood flow to the targeted region and prepare the body for exercise.
Neuromuscular Re-education and Activation- Routines are a part of daily life and often lead to overactive and under active muscles which can create movement imbalances. Correcting these imbalances assists the muscles of the body to function in the most efficient and effective manner to achieve correct biomechanical control at a joint during desired movements.
Theraputic Exercise- These are patient directed, specific interventions used to rebuild weakened muscle and work toward returning to full pre-injury abilities. These activities range from progressive resisted exercises to athletic movement simulations. Exercises will increase to meet the improvements made by the patient with the goal of improving movement efficiency.
Return to Sport Testing- After time off due to an injury an athletes return to the field can be difficult. During this phase we simulate the demands of your sport to ensure a safe return to participation. You will perform activities such as; squatting, jumping, pushing, pulling, sprinting, and cutting and measured against a researched baseline.
