Your Road to Wellness Starts with A T.E.A.M.’s Comprehensive Physical Evaluation

Our licensed professional staff of physical therapists will conduct a thorough evaluation of your overall physical condition including musculoskeletal, cognitive, and neurological screenings to determine the scope of your problem. We will also discuss your complete medical history, lifestyle, job requirements, and work conditions to assess how your life affects your pain and, conversely, how your pain affects your life. The goal is to alleviate the physical obstacles that keep you from living your life to the fullest.

Three Phases of Care, One Path to Recovery

Each phase of care at A T.E.A.M. Approach Physical Therapy Center is designed to bring you one step closer to your destination—physical well-being—as quickly and effectively as possible. They are pain relief, rehabilitation, and injury prevention.

A T.E.A.M. Approach to Custom Treatment

Based on your physical evaluation, our licensed professional staff will design a customized treatment program for your physical rehabilitation. Your treatment plan will be a combination of manual (hands-on) mobilization; physical therapy modalities such as ice, heat, electric stimulation, hot paraffin for hand therapy, TENS, phonophoresis, ultrasound, spray & stretch technique for trigger point-related myofascial pain, and massage techniques; as well as permanent lifestyle changes such as diet/nutrition and a fitness regimen. The goal of this phase of care is to facilitate the body’s natural abilities to heal and stabilize itself.

As an integral part of your custom treatment plan, our staff will also include an at-home exercise program based on your abilities and needs to keep you active and on the forward path to recovery.

Pain Relief

Reduction of muscular and skeletal pain, inflammation, and impaired motion

The first step to recovery is to manage and conquer the physical pain that is keeping you from moving forward on your path to recovery. The idea is to bring down the inflammation and reduce the pain you are experiencing before starting your therapeutic exercise or other physical therapy modalities.

To relieve primary pain and encourage a wider range of motion, our staff may use ice, heat, electric stimulation, hot paraffin as part of hand therapy, TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), and massage.

A T.E.A.M. Approach Physical Therapy Center works to relieve acute pain and chronic pain through manual and non-invasive methods. We treat:

  • Patients recovering from surgery of the knee, shoulder, wrist, elbow, back, neck, hip, and ankle/foot
  • Individuals who have had an auto accident, work accident, or other accident resulting in moderate-to-severe injury of the neck and back or upper and lower extremities
  • Athletes and dancers who suffer from joint, cartilage, or bone pain specific to their sport or vocation
  • Mature adults who are dealing with symptoms associated with normal aging, such as arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Our licensed professional staff will address each person’s needs in order to reduce inflammation and joint or muscle pain, and when relevant, create a program geared to relieving the pain so patients can move on to the next step: physical rehabilitation.

Injury Prevention

Continue your path to well-being after recovery by avoiding re-injury
Once you have completed your physical therapy program and have achieved your maximum potential, we want to make sure you take the necessary steps to avoid future injury. The value of this treatment phase is to capitalize on the gains in your function and mobility, support your ongoing healing, and prevent future health problems.

In this final phase of your custom treatment program, our licensed professional staff will teach you techniques to minimize the chance of re-injury and help you to maintain your well-being. These techniques focus on proper body mechanics, posture, and improved work methods.

Before an individualized program can be implemented, a thorough comprehensive assessment is conducted of your condition and abilities. Once your physical limitations are determined, corrective exercises are prescribed to eliminate the physical dysfunctions. The exercises prescribed are specific to each patient. We focus on building core strength, and improving mobility, stability, balance, posture, and proper body mechanics—all which will help prevent new injuries or re-injury.

We will also discuss and analyze the ergonomics of your work environment, advise you on how to improve your work site’s set-up, and help you implement the proper techniques there to avoid injury or aggravating an existing physical condition.
