REHABILITATION SERVICES

Our Physical Therapists are experts in motion. We treat patients with health-related conditions to reduce pain and restore mobility. As highly trained health care professionals, our therapists create personal treatment plans that meet the patient's healthcare and post-operative rehabilitation needs. Our rehabilitation services keep patients moving forward, so they can return to day-to-day work and recreational activities and remain at their optimal health without further risk of injury. 

Clinician Expertise: All Therapists

We can treat many issues before surgery is required.  Our therapists will do a thorough evaluation and determine what is necessary to get you back to normal activities.  A thorough postoperative assessment is essential.   Muscle weakness and scar tissue result too often due to a delay in rehabilitation program. If surgery is required, you should discuss when it is appropriate to start rehab with your physician.  Once your doctor releases you, we can begin a program immediately.

Our therapist have gone through extensive study of orthopedic procedures from prosthesis to repair. Through open communication with you and your physician, we will tailor a program that is suited for your needs and the specific orthopedic procedure that you are planning to have completed.

  • Pain is often a difficult, misunderstood and scary thing to live with. It can affect all aspects of your day and life. It can change your mood.  Your thoughts, feelings, and even your fears can in turn negatively influence how you experience your pain. This may sound odd but it's all completely normal.  Understanding what the pain means can help you understand what to do about it and break a difficult cycle.

  • Therapeutic Pain Neuroscience Education, or TPNE, is the cornerstone for helping patients better understand their pain.   We now know that pain is far more complex than we once thought and is an individualized experience that everyone responds to differently because pain is a protective response that is as unique as are the people living with it. This is especially true for people experiencing pain lasting longer than 3-6 months. This is considered Chronic or Persistent pain and it is often very difficult to treat.

  • TPNE aims to help you manage and reduce your pain, even chronic pain, by simplifying what pain really is and how it is experienced throughout the body. TPNE simplifies these often medically technical and sometimes abstract bio-mechanical and neuro-physiological concepts into easier to understand and more relevant principles or guidelines that will help you better interpret your pain. When you understand your pain it helps to change your perspective on what the pain really means and what to do about it.

Orthotics

At Alpine we offer affordable custom orthotic casting through Sole Support fabrication services. Based off Maximal Arch Supination Stabilization (MASS) theory, our orthotics are designed to distribute body weight through the foot during a normal gait cycle. Orthotics can be a helpful positioning tool to aide in physical therapy services for a multitude of orthopedic issues including over-pronation, plantar fasciitis, hallux-rigidus, flattening feet, bunion prevention, Morton's neuroma, foot pain during pregnancy and more! Orthotics can be useful to help normalize alignment of the knees, hips and back. Ask your PT if orthotics can help improve your game.
