Specialty Physical Therapy Services

Orthopedics and Sports Rehab

To start, an individualized plan of therapy is developed. We only use licensed therapy staff for treatment. You will not work with a tech for any part of your sessions. It is very important that the prescribed movement patterns be properly aligned, monitored, and progressed by a licensed therapist. Every body is different and it requires a skilled therapist to identify the differences and curate a program that will be most effective. This is why we schedule one on one sessions for every patient. We are committed to providing the highest quality physical therapy experience possible.

Joint Pain

Disease processes such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can cause significant pain and limitations to one’s ability to walk or participate in life.

The focus of treatment for joint pain is to:
Improve mobility and restore the use of painful joints, improve strength in the muscles surrounding the joint, improve overall fitness, and restore and preserve the ability to perform daily and recreation activities .

Joint Replacement

Rehab is the most important part of a joint replacement. It is imperative that range of motion, flexibility and strength training start without delay, after surgery. Long term outcomes depend heavily on the quality of physical therapy received and we are focused on making sure you return to full function and mobility, without delay. Your therapist will work with your surgeon and follow appropriate surgical protocols.

Whether it is a knee replacement, hip replacement or shoulder replacement, you are in good hands with Beyond Therapy.

Back Pain and Sciatic Pain

If you have low back pain, you are not alone. At any given time, about 25% of people in the United States report having low back pain within the past 3 months. Starting PT quickly after the first sign of back or sciatic pain can reduce the duration of the pain and return you more quickly to normal mobility. Sciatic nerve pain is often a result of spasm in the back and glutes, specifically the piriformis. Disc herniations can contribute to muscle spasm and nerve pain/compression. Physical therapy works to decompress affected nerves, encourage proper disc position, eliminate spasm, and increase spinal stability to eliminate your pain and reduce the risk of recurrence.

What is Sciatic Pain?

Neck Pain

Neck pain is pain felt in the back of the neck and can radiate down the shoulders and arms. It is estimated that neck pain affects approximately 30% of the US population each year. Neck pain can be caused by chronic poor posture, sudden trauma such as a fall, sports injury, or car accident, or by long-term problems in the spine.
Neck pain most frequently affects adults aged 30 to 50 years. Some studies indicate that women are more likely to suffer neck pain than men. Poor posture, obesity, smoking, repetitive lifting, office and computer work, and involvement in athletic activity are all risk factors for developing neck pain.
The majority of neck pain episodes do not require surgery and respond best to physical therapy and conservative care. Citation

Rotator Cuff Injury and Repair

The "rotator cuff" is the group of 4 muscles and their tendons responsible for keeping the shoulder joint stable. Injuries to the rotator cuff are common—either from accident or trauma, or with repeated overuse of the shoulder. Risk of injury can vary, but generally increases as a person ages. Rotator cuff tears are more common later in life, but also can occur in younger people. Athletes and heavy laborers are often affected. Older adults can injure the rotator cuff when they fall on or strain the shoulder. When left untreated, a rotator cuff tear can cause severe pain and a decrease in the ability to use the arm. Physical therapists help people with rotator cuff tears address pain and stiffness, restore movement to the shoulder and arm, and improve their activities of daily living.citation

After a surgical repair for the rotator cuff, physical therapy is essential for regaining full range of motion, flexibility, strength, and use of the arm again. Proper adherence to rehab protocols for RTC repairs can mean the difference between a full return to function and having to redo the surgical repair. Your physical therapist will keep you at the appropriate level of progress - not too slow and not too fast, to facilitate the best outcomes possible.

A frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, occurs when there is a specific pattern of motion loss in the shoulder. This can happen after an injury or without reason. It affects women more than men and is typically diagnosed in people over the age of 45. Of the people who have had adhesive capsulitis in 1 shoulder, it is estimated that 20% to 30% will get it in the other shoulder as well. Physical therapists help people with adhesive capsulitis address pain and stiffness, and restore shoulder movement in the safest and most effective way possible. Citation

Musculoskeletal Injuries

Physical Therapy addresses the injured area with the use of modalities to control and reduce pain and inflammation. Body and sport mechanics are evaluated and modified. Muscle and nerve imbalances and restrictions are corrected to allow full return to sport or activity.
