"Freedom from pain and the Freedom to live life fully"
We are tightly focused on our vision and it drives everything we do. We do that with every person, every day. We listen, carefully evaluate your condition and provide effective treatment that also honors you as a whole person—mind, body and spirit.
Our expertise in specific evidence-based manual techniques places us on the front edge of results gained in clinics nationally. Approximately 90% of our patients are seen for a short time-frame— between 6-12 sessions from start to finish— and with high-level outcomes. But don’t take our word for it…. Check out our Success Stories to see what our “graduates” have to say.
What conditions do we treat?
We’re highly trained and specialize in
- Chronic pain conditions, especially multiple areas of involvement such as spine and extremities
- Sports and Work-related Injuries (e.g., sprains, strains, fractures)
- Rehabilitation before and after surgery (e.g., knee, shoulder, neck, back and fractures)
- Injuries related to motor vehicle accidents and recent or old traumas
- Pain and Functional limitations in the neck, extremities and back
- Balance problems with increased fall potential
- Total Joint Replacements (e.g., hip, knee, shoulder and disc)
- Treatment of conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis or Golfer’s elbow, Iliotibial band syndrome, Trochanteric bursitis, Patellofemoral pain, Headaches, Frozen shoulder, Rotator Cuff tears, Shoulder Impingement/bursitis, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Arthritis
Why did we open Freedom Physical Therapy & Sports Rehabilitation?
As one of the few clinics in the United States to practice the specialized manual techniques Fascial Manipulation™and Fascial Distortion Model™ on an expert level, we see our vision of “offering freedom from pain and the freedom to live life fully” as a fantastic opportunity. Leaning on a strong and growing body of research evidence and successful clinical practice, we also want to help change the way pain is so often treated. While the physical therapy and medical literature is now coming to better understand the way we are interconnected—as in the terms “regional interdependence” or “myofascial expansions”—many clinicians are still focused on treating a part instead of the whole. Not surprisingly, results of such techniques are often quite limited. Stated more clearly, effective care needs to take the whole into consideration.
Although many of the people coming to our clinic may be aware of only one or two primary sites of pain, when examined they are often found to have many painful areas. Due to linkages within the fascia and muscle, we often need to treat most or all of these areas for full resolution. For example, neck pain may be related to a previous hip injury or shoulder pain related to an injury in the low back. There are many possible combinations. However, such an approach generally takes much less time to successfully treat out all the problem areas for full and lasting relief. For those interested, one can quickly access professional journals via the search engines Google, Google Scholar or PubMed to look up the terms mentioned above as well as the names of prominent researchers such as Carla Stecco, MD, PhD, and Antonio Stecco, MD, PhD. Such researchers are finally helping us to understand more accurately how the body is interconnected and functions and how certain muscular and fascial pathologies can be a source of so much of our misery. Finally, to demonstrate that the idea of interconnection is not new, we have a quote by the Greek philosopher, Plato, prominently displayed in our office, “The cure of the part should not be attempted without the cure of the whole.”
