Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

We utilize progressive physical therapy protocols dependent on your stage of recovery.

Range of motion and flexibility are emphasized during the initial acute stage of an injury. Shortly after, you progress to isometric exercise, which is a type of strength training proven to be a safe and effective way to establish and maintain strength in the supporting muscles around the injured area. This prevents disuse atrophy, which occurs when muscles that are no longer in use become weaker.

At later stages of injury rehabilitation, you are transitioned into kinetic strengthening and neuromuscular exercises. This imperative final stage is for stabilization around the areas of injury. The exercises include proprioceptive retraining, muscular strengthening, and overall endurance.

Patients get a solid understanding of exercises and techniques to incorporate at home after going through our physical therapy program . Future injury risk is lessened when staying proactive in rehabilitation.  

 

NWIRC has a different feel. You are greeted warmly, and they have a whole rehab area and private offices. The whole facility is clean and you can tell the staff is knowledgeable. They have also been very involved in the local community which is awesome when companies give back. A+ team and service.
