Physical Therapy at
Pain and Rehab Center

Physical therapy is a non-invasive therapy that addresses problems in the discs, joints, nerves, tendons, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. In addition, it works with sports injuries that cause pain, weakness and stiffness.

At Pain and Rehab Center we do a full assessment of your condition and create a treatment plan for your specific needs. Our goal is for every patient to regain their pre-injury fitness levels and prevent future injuries.

Improving Flexibility and Balance

Having a good level of flexibility and range of motion is important to perform most daily activities. Improved flexibility can help reduce the risk of injury when participating in physical activities.

At Pain and Rehab Center, we’ll help get your flexibility to your optimal level. Working together, we’ll ensure you have the most range of motion possible in your joints.

Postural problems make it difficult to maintain stable and upright positions when standing, walking, and even sitting. Injuries can affect balance as well when the body attempts to compensate for the unexpected weakness. Physical therapy can help retrain the body and correct the issue.

Conditions We Help With

Some issues physical therapy can address are:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Shoulder, knee and ankle injury or pain
  • Muscle injuries, ligament and tendon problems, sprains and soft tissue injuries
  • Sports related injuries
  • Workplace injuries
  • Balance and flexibility problems
  • Chronic fatigue and weakness
  • Osteoporosis
  • Pre- and post-surgical strength and conditioning rehabilitation
  • Fractures and other orthopedic conditions
  • Respiratory problems and poor cardiovascular endurance
  • Arthritis in one or multiple joints
  • Extremity problems
  • Bladder or bowel incontinence
  • Headaches and dizziness

Dr. Gela provides a thorough physical analysis. Having an open dialog with our patients regarding details relevant to their pain helps to correctly determine your course of treatment. We analyze any movement dysfunctions to properly diagnose and provide you with the best treatment strategies.

Getting You Back in the Game

Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a professional, athletes understand the demands sports activities place on their bodies. Painful sprains, strains, tears and overuse injuries are common. Causes may include excessive training, repetitive motions, failure to warm up properly, forceful impacts and old injury issues.

Regardless of how you got injured, physical therapy can help you heal and prevent future injuries.
