An in-depth evaluation is performed to determine the exact cause of the problem.  Once that has been done, a hands-on/manual approach is often used to decrease the pain quickly.  Once the symptoms have responded to manual treatment a simple, brief but specific exercise routine is given to the patient to begin gaining control of any residual problems.  

 

Once the pain, stiffness or other complaints are better a specific, individualized exercise program is developed to strengthen the problem area and progress the long term control and prevention of the symptoms.  The analogy is often made at In Touch Therapy of teaching someone to fish versus catching them a fish.  We want to teach you how to “catch fish” and help give you control of a problem on your own.  

 

In Touch Therapy has specialized in orthopedic manual physical therapy of the spine and extremities.  We seek to find the cause of the problem and many times we can help with out surgery and significant reduction in the need for medication.  We provide physical therapy treatment for any problem which limits your ability to move or perform your normal daily and recreational activities. 

 

Please wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes.
