Inflammation is part of the bodies defense system that plays a vital role in the healing process. Virtually everything that we treat in Physical Therapy is connected to one of the two types of inflammatory categories: Acute and Chronic.
Joint Replacement Rehabilitation
Rise Above Physical Therapy professionals have an extensive amount of experience in post operative joint replacement rehabilitation.

Overall mobility and flexibility play a vital role in improving and maintaining activities of daily living. Rise Above Physical Therapy provides stretching services while incorporating deep tissue techniques to improve your overall flexibility, promoting better mobility for everyday tasks, sports performance, and general well being. Stretching will increase blood flow, which in turn helps to heal and decrease muscle pain and discomfort. As part of our commitment to decreasing inflammation, stretching has shown to decrease both acute and chronic inflammation. If your feeling a little stiff or tight, or would like a good stretch before or after your workout at the YMCA, schedule a session today!
Aquatic therapy is great for people that are not ready or able to perform land based exercises. The buoyancy of the water reduces the stress placed on the joints, and also works well with overweight individuals. The viscosity of water provides resistance for strengthening muscles with much less stress than if performed on land. Hydrostatic pressure decreases swelling and improves joint position awareness (proprioception) needed for joint sprains and muscle strains. The warmth of the water will increase blood flow to injured areas relaxing muscle spasms, decreasing back pain, and relief to other painful chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.
Orthopedic and Neurological Rehabilitation
Whether you are suffering from an injury to a joint or a muscle we will utilize the resources that are necessary in an effort to get you to a full and complete recovery.
If you are experiencing problems with your neurological system such as a loss of balance and coordination, difficulty walking or performing tasks, Rise Above Physical Therapy will construct programs targeted at improving these challenges.

Treatment of Neck and Back Pain
