Physical Therapy

Physical therapy services at ELITE Physical Therapy are dedicated to the improvement of movement and functional ability for persons of all age groups and physical conditions. Our physical therapists and physical therapy assistants are dedicated to helping our patients and clients return to function, prevent injury and illness, and improve the quality of life.

Low Back and Neck Pain

75% of Americans experience back pain during their lives. Whether chronic or acute, back or neck pain can be painful and limiting. We address this with manual techniques for the joints and soft tissues. This includes spinal mobilization and manipulation. We are also specialists at prescribing the proper exercise program to address your limitations.

Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

Nobody likes to have surgery and often the recovery can be difficult. We are here to help you through this difficult time. Whether you’ve had a fracture, ligament tear, rotator cuff tear or other surgical procedure, we work closely with your physician on returning you to your pre-injury functional level. We have established, goal oriented, post-surgical protocols for most surgical procedures and we’ll discuss this process with you, providing encouragement and guidance during your rehabilitation.

Total Joint Rehabilitation

ELITE Physical Therapy has a Total Joint Program that is specially geared to the special needs of these patients. We have treated hundreds of patients with joint replacements over the years. Whether it’s a knee, shoulder, hip, or other joint replacement, we provide a hands on approach to control pain, restore range of motion and strength and return the patient to their highest possible level of function.

Sports Injuries and Return to Sport Testing

Our team has been assisting the athletic community for the last 27 years. Whether a youth athlete, high school, college, professional or recreational athlete, we have the state of the art skills and training necessary to return you to sports quickly and effectively. Our scientific based return to sport testing protocol utilizes priciples from SFMA, Y-BALANCE and FMS.

Trigger Point Dry Needling

Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm which commonly follows injuries and often accompanies the degenerative processes. This muscular tightness and spasm will cause compression and irritation of the nerves exiting the spine. When the nerves are irritated, they cause a protective spasm of all the muscles to which they are connected. This may cause peripheral diagnoses, such as carpel tunnel, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility and chronic pain.  Small, thin needles are inserted in the muscles at the trigger points causing the pain referral. The muscles would then contract and release, improving flexibility of the muscle and decreasing symptoms.  

Geriatric Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation from injury is not the same for all persons and the physical and occupational therapists at ELITE Physical Therapy acknowledge that the needs of our geriatric patients differ from those of younger age groups. Our specialty training and experience with the geriatric population allows ELITE Physical Therapy' our physical and occupational therapists to provide some of the most sound, compassionate, and effective care available to the aging adult. Specializing in the areas of geriatric fitness, wellness, and balance, ELITE Physical Therapy will improve and facilitate optimal health within the aging population.

Work-Related Care

In conjunction with Injury Management Services and Bruce O’Dell, MOT, CPE, CFCE we can meet all of your industrial and work related needs. We works with industry to provide onsite job analysis and functional job descriptions to make sure that the essential functions of the job are identified. We then provide pre-work screens to ensure that the prospective hire has the physical abilities to meet those essential functions. We also provide comprehensive FCE services, work conditioning and work hardening.

ASTYM

ASTYM is a specialized process of soft tissue mobilization which stimulates the body's own regenerative healing processes. Use of the ASTYM technique and specialty tools requires advanced training and credentials, of which ELITE’s providers have successfully obtained for the benefit of our patients. ELITE’s therapists are currently the only physical and occupational therapy providers in the area who provide this specialized treatment technique.

Occupational Therapy

ELITE Physical Therapy’s occupational therapy personnel have advanced skills in the evaluation and treatment of elbow, wrist, and hand injuries including post-operative, nerve, and orthopedic conditions. Our therapists fabricate custom fitted splints and develop treatment plans specific to each patient’s individual needs and based on their specific diagnosis. Special consideration is given to each patient’s ability to participate in their activities of daily living including the home, work, and recreational environments. Industrial services are also offered through Injury Management Services by Bruce O’Dell, MOT, CPE, CFCE. These services include the development of job descriptions, pre-hire screening, functional capacity evaluation (FCE), and work hardening/conditioning.

Hand Injuries

With specialty training in hand rehabilitation and customized static and dynamic splinting, ELITE Physical Therapy has the advanced experience and clinical skill in the complex region of the hand and upper extremity. A combined approach which integrates elements of physical and occupational therapy, ELITE therapists provide some of the most current and advanced treatment techniques available to persons with injury to the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder regions.

Sprains and Strains

Sprains and strains can occur when the joints or muscles are overloaded, either in a sudden injury or a repetitive situation. When injury and inflammation occur, we work with the patient on controlling inflammation and swelling and restoring range of motion, strength and function.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the lay term for neuropathy of the median nerve, in which bony and soft tissue compression leads to numbness and/or muscle weakness as the result of repetitive trauma to the area. ELITE’s therapists are trained to remediate the symptoms associated with CTS, making them a preferred provider for this severe, but manageable condition.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are an unfortunate reality of the busy world in which we live. And while motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of acquired disability in the U.S., ELITE Physical Therapy is here to address the complex issues that arise out of these unfortunate happenings. ELITE Physical Therapy’s providers are highly skilled in the clinical rehabilitation of motor vehicle injuries, and our medical billing staff are knowledgeable in the processes required to submit medical claims to auto insurance companies in order to receive prompt and appropriate payment.

We are here because we care. We are here because of you.
