High-Touch and High Trust

Physical therapy is a combination of art, science and skill. In the hands of the right practitioner, these are more than enough to treat most any problem.  But here at Midwest Physical Therapy, we offer one other key element that patients often feel is missing in a typical physical therapy experience.  Heart.  Injury, illness, chronic pain and the unknown are all scary.  The high-touch approach we employ at Midwest Physical Therapy can help to ease not only pain, but ease fear.  The client-technician connection is so important in building a framework for healing.  Heightened during high-touch therapies, a strong sense of understanding, both physically and mentally, create a unified care-plan partnership throughout your rehabilitation process.

The field of physical therapy is vast and ever expanding as new sciences and technologies emerge.  Here at Midwest Physical Rehab we employ many of the most modern modalities and combine them with the most skillful, trustworthy and tactile tools known to PT; the hands of a knowledgeable therapist.

Healing begins with a comprehensive care plan taking into consideration the information of most importance, what you need, and how we can help.  We will combine our technical rehabilitation expertise with information about your medical history, lifestyle, symptoms, location of pain, work and exercise habits, specific injury or condition, and of course, your Doctor’s PT prescription and recommendations to best pave your road to recovery.

As fellow humans with aches and pains, concerns and fears, and the need for compassion and care, we spare no expense in ensuring our patients receive nothing less than the care we would expect.  At Midwest Physical Rehab, we can guarantee that you will not be a number or a faceless name.  Never will you be “going through the motions” on impersonal machines that offer questionable results.  Our goal is to create a highly personal rehabilitation experience.  Once you are paired with a PT, you will remain a team through your healing protocol.  In conjunction with your newest trusted PT partner, today’s best scientific PT treatments, and the skilled hands and techniques lent to your rehabilitation,  you will feel better.  Pain will go away sooner. Healing will be faster. You’ll feel stronger. You’ll move better. Your energy and stamina will increase, and all your favorite activities will be yours once again.

The Science of Mechanical Rehabilitation

Ultrasound

Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment modality commonly used in physical therapy. It is used to provide deep heating to soft tissues in the body. These tissues include muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments.

Electrical Stimulation

Electric stimulation therapy is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation in treating muscle spasms and pain. It can help prevent atrophy and build strength in patients with injuries. It is also helpful in keeping muscles active especially after any type spinal cord injury or strokes.

Traction

Spinal traction is a form of decompression therapy that relieves pressure on the spine. It can be performed manually or mechanically. Spinal traction is used to treat herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and many other back conditions.

Weight Training Equipment

The goal of physical therapy is to increase the range of motion through your joints in order to improve overall mobility and function. By strengthening your muscles, you help stabilize your joints, facilitating improved function.

The Art and Skill of High-Touch Healing

Soft Tissue Techniques

Soft tissue mobilization is a form of manual physical therapy where your licensed physical therapist uses hands-on techniques on your muscles, ligaments and fascia with the goal of breaking adhesions and optimizing your muscle function. These new tissues pull against one another, forming trigger points of pain.

Joint Mobilization

Joint mobilization is an example of a hands-on treatment and is a form of passive movement technique for musculoskeletal conditions. This technique, which is considered manual therapy, is usually performed by certified physical therapists. Also, mobilization is in cases when range of motion is lacking.

Strain and Counterstrain

Strain Counterstrain is a manual therapy technique, meaning clinicians use only their hands for treatment of muscle and joint pain. It uses passive body positioning of hypertonic (spasmed) muscles and dysfunctional joints toward positions of comfort or tissue ease that compress or shorten the offending muscle.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy often used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. These tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body.

Craniosacral Techniques

Craniosacral therapy is an alternative treatment typically used by osteopaths, chiropractors, and massage therapists. It claims to use a gentle touch to manipulate the joints in the cranium or skull, parts of the pelvis, and the spine to treat disease.

Muscle Energy & Stretching

Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is a manual therapy that uses the gentle muscle contractions of the patient to relax and lengthen muscles and normalize joint motion. The process of lengthening shortened or spastic muscles, to improve weakened ligament and muscle strength, will directly improve range of motion.

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic Massage Therapy is a great way to improve your quality of life. It relieves stress, can be both stimulating or soothing, and helps to create inner balance and harmony. Therapeutic Massage can be stimulating or soothing depending on the technique, depth and speed.

Exercise, Balance & Resistance

Therapeutic exercise refers to a range of physical activities that helps restore and build physical strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, and stability.
