Orthopedic Therapy for Children
Rapid Recovery Programs!Early care is essential to safely return to activity as soon as possible. Developing a specific and individualized program maximizes function and minimizes the chances of a childhood injury becoming a chronic painful condition or disability in adulthood. We have extensive experience with amateur to professional athletes in most sports.
Experienced Orthopedic Physical Therapists, who have been working with post-surgical scars and traumatic scars for many years, will evaluate the situation and determine the appropriate treatment.
Scars and Mobility- you can probably imagine how a tight scar in the front of your knee (example: total knee surgery) could limit your bending range of motion.
Scars and Pain- sometimes scars can be painful as they mature. The “non-elastic” fiber can “press” or “pull” on nerves and blood vessels within the scar tissue causing a painful scar. Loosening up the scar and breaking down the adhesions can reduce pain, improve mobility and restore normal function.
Anodyne Light Therapy- helps heal wounds, burns, and surgical incisions much faster. A healed wound reduces your chances of infection entering through the open area. Wound healing research indicates that scars have up to a 300% better blood flow (profusion) when the Anodyne is used…making the scar more resistant to reopening and “breaking down.”
We have helped several hundred patients become adhesion free allowing for normal movement, less pain and better functionality. This is also effective in all types of surgery such as open-heart and cosmetic surgeries.
An orthotic is a supportive device which is placed inside footwear, to change the medianical function of the foot. It is a custom model device designed to apply a full contact force into the arch. It is flexible enough to allow adequate arch flatting for function and comfort but rigid enough to maintain proper control.
Because the feet are the foundation for the entire skeletal system, even a slight misalignment can allow the arch to collapse and cause foot pain to spread to the knee, hips, back, shoulders and neck. Strained muscles, spinal distortion and poor posture can follow.
In all there are over 30 common diagnoses related to poor foot functions:
Sometimes after mastectomies, breast augmentations or breast reconstructions a patient may have pain or difficulty with their shoulders, arms or neck. The delay of normal function can be related to pain, muscle weakness, scar tissue or nerve glide restrictions.Therapists at CPTI develop a personalized program of exercises, stretching, an home program to help with symptom self-management, and use manual therapy when needed. Only a few visits of therapy are needed to achieve a much faster recovery.We can get you feeling better so you can move on and enjoy life.
Sometimes pain doesn't go away even if the limb is no longer there. Manual therapy techniques and home program education in: tissue desensitization, scar (adhesion) mobility, stretching, strengthening and nerve glide exercises can often be helpful. The development and education of a home exercise program is an essential part of symptom self-management. Pain relieving creams (Sombra), and other topical lotions can also be helpful.
Sounds crazy we agree, however, if you are suffering with hiccups you have to try this. We have a manual therapy approach that works almost every time. Try everything you have heard of before coming to us, but when you're sick and tired of your chronic hiccups, give us a try.One to two visits is usually all it takes. However, this does not work well on infants.
