Physical Therapy Practices
Experienced professionals will guide you in a range of practices that put you back on your feet and moving toward your goals.
Osteopathic Manual Therapy
The human body contains intricate systems of muscles, nerves and bones. Osteopathic manual therapy recognizes the interconnected nature of these systems and uses hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat the body.
Muscle Energy Technique
This form of manual therapy mobilizes joints and relaxes muscles with subtle muscle contractions.
Afterward, you will experience decreased pain, better movement and improved alignment.
The physical therapist will use techniques such as sustained pressure and stretching to loosen myofascial restrictions (tense areas in the muscles and connective tissue). The therapist will also manually manipulate soft body tissues to relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries and reduce pain.
The therapist will perform treatments to promote healing and pain relief.
Ultrasound • Traction • Iontophoresis • Electrical stimulation • Cold or heat application • TENS Units
In-depth orthopedic and functional exercise and conditioning, tailored to your lifestyle and activities, will improve the quality and efficiency of your movements.
Ongoing education throughout physical therapy will empower you to build long-term health.
Pelvic Floor Therapy
Celeste Van Wert is a leading, experienced physical therapist specializing in the area of pelvic disorders. Celeste has had extensive training for pelvic floor dysfunction over the past 15 years, is passionate about her specialty and has a unique, holistic and caring approach. She performs a comprehensive intake with all new patients to determine the pelvic disorder (such as pelvic pain, frequent urination, urinary and/or bowel incontinence, constipation, post-prostatectomy, pediatric issues, etc.) and considers ALL aspects of a patient’s current health and history. For treatment, Celeste uses osteopathic techniques including visceral manipulation muscle energy, cranial sacral, myofascial release and other manual therapies.
Cranial Sacral Therapy
Gentle touches to the cranium and sacrum restore the natural rhythmic movement found between the bones of the skull. Cranial sacral therapy improves circulation of cerebrospinal fluid throughout the body system.
Everything has energy – including injuries and painful spots. During esoteric healing, the therapist identifies weak or congested areas of energy and works to improve it . This nonintrusive and noninvasive technique puts the patient in a place of rest and peace to change the energy they feel regarding the injury or pain.
Tai chi is a gentle form of exercise and stretching where participants perform a series of slow, controlled, mindful moments. This movement practice has many health benefits such as decreasing stress and joint pain, improving muscle strength, flexibility and balance, and enhancing the immune system.
All sessions are led by a trained professional.
