PILATES

Pilates is a system of exercises that focuses on posture, core strengthening, stretching, breathing and body mechanics. Pilates exercises were created by Joseph Pilates after WWI and has been integrated into rehabilitation since the 1920s. At Motion Pros P.T. & Pilates, we use a combination of exercises on the Reformer and Trapeze table that are specific to Pilates but tailored for the client’s specific injury or needs.

TRX

TRX is a full-body strength workout that utilizes a person’s own body weight by using Suspension Straps or a Rip Stick. Although created by a Navy Seal to train people who are highly fit, many exercises can be appropriate for people who are working at the most basic level, even after surgery. TRX is utilized to develop core strength, rotational power, flexibility and endurance.

MANUAL THERAPY

Manual therapy is a physical therapy term describing hands-on treatment by a therapist and can include joint mobilization, passive stretching and myofascial release. For example, trigger points in the muscles which cause pain can be released through hands-on gliding or point pressure by a therapist.

MASSAGE & REIKI

We offer massage with aroma therapy as part of the physical therapy treatment and customize the pressure to the client's needs. A Swedish massage is light to medium pressure. Deep tissue is very firm. Our massage therapist also offers pregnancy massage and Reiki. Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel positive energy into the patient to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.

PEDIATRIC PHYSICAL THERAPY

We treat all ages including children. Some common disorders that children are seen for include fractures, sprains and posture dysfunction

MODALITIES

In physical therapy, we can use modalities to manage pain. The following is a list of our modalities and what they are effective for:

  • Electrical Stimulation – a comfortable level of electrical pulses are delivered through electrodes on the skin to reduce pain and swelling, to improve blood circulation to muscles and to stimulate muscular activity before exercise. We offer interferential and Russian stimulation, which are more effective than TENS machines.
  • Ultrasound – is a type of heat through ultrasonic waves which focuses well on small localized areas to improve circulation and reduce pain
  • Cold Laser (or Light Laser) – A light set at a therapeutic wavelength is applied directly to a targeted area and damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.
  • Cervical Traction – We use a manually controlled device to distract the vertebrae of the neck to reduce pressure on the nerves. This is often used for people who have radiating pain or numbness and tingling down the arms. Manually controlled devices are generally safer than electric/automatic traction machines.
