Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Orthopedic rehabilitation at Keep Moving Forward consists of one-on-one sessions with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Each session consists of manual realignment of the skeletal and muscular systems, putting your body in optimal alignment for functional strength and efficiency. Our therapists use a variety of manual techniques including soft tissue massage, myofascial release, joint mobilizations, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, cupping, and more. Following manual therapy, the physical therapist hand picks appropriate therapeutic exercises to strengthen and target the root cause of the pain, allowing you to reach your functional mobility goals. Since each session is one-on-one, the physical therapist will be able to make sure each exercise is performed properly to eliminate the risk of further injury. Using a variety of equipment and exercise philosophies, treatment plans are individually tailored to your needs.

Neurological Rehabilitation

The nervous system controls the muscles of the body, joint movements, balance, and coordination. Diseases and injuries to the nervous system can have dramatic effects across the body affecting one’s ability to function. Because of this, physical therapy for neurological conditions is different from treating an orthopedic injury. Neurological rehabilitation involves injuries, disease, and problems related to the brain and central nervous system. In physical therapy the goal is to achieve maximal, independent level of function through strengthening, range of motion, coordination and balance training as well as functional activities. With our state-of the art equipment patients are given the ability to gain strength, balance and function in a safe environment and gain independence!

 Therapists who specialize in neurology work with a wide range of patients who may have one of the following conditions:

  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain injury
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis

Aqua Therapy

Water provides a safe, comforting, and relaxed environment for gentle, virtually weightless exercise. Aquatic therapy allows a patient to gain muscle strength and practice other physical functions in a pool limiting the effects gravity would produce with normal land-based exercise. In water, participants are supported by buoyancy and encounter less resistance when they move around decreasing dependence with movement and increased sensory input to joints and muscles. Aquatic Therapy is a clinically proven, safe, and effective approach for intervention. 

Like any other physical therapy program, aquatic therapy is done under the supervision of a licensed and trained physical therapist. This treatment opens up several new options as goals and exercises that were once impossible can be made possible with aquatic therapy.

Our team works one-on-one with patients to develop a customized plan aimed at achieving maximum function.

 

 Aquatic therapy exercises are designed to improve:

  • Muscle strength
  • Gait mechanics
  • Balance
  • Ambulatory Endurance
  • Flexibility and Range of Motion
  • Postural stabilization
  • Coordination
  • Agility
  • Aerobic Capacity
