Physical Therapy Plus employs a unique blend of therapists. Their expertise in the fields of ergonomics, athletic training, balance dysfunction and sports medicine rehabilitation allows them to develop an individualized physical therapy program designed specifically to address the requirements of a patient's functional needs.
Balance difficulties can often inhibit physical activity and thus physical function. Our specialized evaluation and physical therapy reverses that trend, and customized rehabilitation offers better results than medication alone. For some older age groups, falling is the leading reason for emergency room visits. PT Plus is the only therapy practice in upstate NY certified to use BalanceWear in the treatment of balance related issues.
PT Plus has a wide variety of patients with acute, chronic, and post-surgical orthopedic injuries of the spine and extremities. Our staff's physical therapy expertise enables us to treat an unlimited range of orthopedic challenges in patients of all ages. Techniques used include joint mobilization for stiff and painful joints, soft tissue mobilization, gait analysis and gait training, posture analysis, and comprehensive exercise programs.
Immediately following surgery you may have swelling, pain, stiffness, loss of motion, weakness, decreased function, scar tissue development, and difficulty walking or going up and down stairs. Physical therapy can help to address these issues.
The McKenzie approach to spinal care is a specialized mechanical and diagnostic therapy system clinicians utilize to treat pain and injuries of the spine. Following a thorough assessment, patients are assigned a treatment classification based on their responses to movement. Successful treatment of neck and back injuries involves a multi-faceted approach and an accurate evaluation to determine the source(s) of pain.
PT Plus is able to provide businesses/employers with an analysis of their work site, an examination of the functionality of employees while on the job, conditioning programs to reduce risk of injury and seminars for employees about injury prevention. The ultimate goal is to have an employee work effectively and safely in the work place.
