The cornerstone of effective rehabilitation is a thorough evaluation. Our doctorate-trained physical therapist, Dr. Cliff Hall, is an expert in assessment of the musculoskeletal system. The goal of your evaluation is to determine the specific areas of dysfunction in the body and the level of physical therapy intervention needed. Through his comprehensive and focused assessment, Dr. Hall will design an individualized treatment plan for you.
Exercise is a key element of your physical therapy treatment program. Our therapist will design a program to address the needs identified in your evaluation and make sure you are moving in a safe, functional, and effective manner. Exercise may include traditional equipment such as stationary bikes, elliptical, free weights, weight machines, and more. Your program may also include exercises focusing on specific muscle groups, balance, and cardiovascular endurance.
Often coupled with therapeutic exercise, manual therapy techniques are a hands-on treatment specific to the tissues that cause abnormal or restricted movement. Manual techniques may include passive range of motion (stretching), joint mobilization and/or manipulation to improve the motion of the joints, and soft tissue mobilization. Dr. Hall is also trained in Functional Dry Needling, and Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM), two specialized manual techniques that may also be employed to help reduce pain and promote soft tissue healing.

No matter the procedure you’ve had, our team is expert in designing and implementing the post-surgical plan right for you.
