Proper form equals optimal performance. myPT will analyze your movement patterns to determine what impairments you have.

ORTHOPEDIC INJURY RECOVERY
Orthopedic injuries range from tendonitis to strains to tears or even breaks. These are scary words. Understanding your problem is at the heart of recovery. Understanding how the problem started is at the heart of developing a treatment program. At myPT, educating the individual is one of the first steps to rehabilitation. You will receive hands-on care, but also a deeper understanding of which movements are right for your body. Each person has a unique biomechanical composition, and each person requires treatments that address the requirements of his or her musculoskeletal system.
What if I told you that you CAN move better with less or no medication? Pain is a symptom of dysfunction. Pain is not something to train through. Pain is not something to live with. Pain CAN get better. Pain is your body is telling you something and you have to listen to it and respect it. If you can’t speak the same language as your body, myPT can translate. Patients frequently arrive at physical therapy with a chronic pain issue. myPT can perform a comprehensive systems assessment to figure out the source of your pain. Your journey does not begin when you walk through the door. Very likely it began weeks, months, or years ago. Understanding why you started hurting in the first place is of utmost importance in living a better life. Changing long-standing habits or quickly-learned compensations can greatly improve your level of pain.
At myPT, injury prevention is paramount in long-term health and wellness. In the confines of most PT practices, prevention is not covered under insurance plans or it may be deemed an unimportant part of individual fitness. myPT will assess and re-assess your specific movement patterns to create a functional blueprint of your body and highlight any weaknesses in your patterns. Corrective exercises with guided progressions will ensure that you continue to move better as you perform. When you move better, you will feel better, perform better and be better…for longer.
Most of us spend between 30 and 50 hours a week at work or getting to work. We are sitting ourselves to death. So we stand, then we hurt. Why?

Workplace ergonomics are often overlooked as contributors to pain or dysfunction. myPT can assess your workplace set-up to determine your body’s needs and adjust accordingly.
