We regularly address issues such as:
The simple acts of bending, sitting, and lifting can exacerbate back pain. Often mechanical in nature, sources of back pain commonly include herniated disc or other disc injury, pinched nerve, Piriformis Syndrome, sciatica, and spinal stenosis, along with muscle spasms, postural issues, and trauma. See also Lower Back Pain on our Pain Management page
A chronic disorder affecting the musculoskeletal system, FM is characterized by widespread muscle pain, fatigue, and sleep and concentration problems.
Head and Neck Pain
Whether acute or chronic, head and neck pain often impacts range of motion and the ability to carry out daily routines. Sources include chronic sinusitis, headache, herniated disc or other disc injury, migraines, muscle spasms, pinched nerve, and postural issues. See also Whiplash below, and Headache, Including Migraine, on our Pain Management page.
Hip, Knee, Ankle/Foot, Shoulder, Forearm/Wrist Injuries
Whether the result of an acute, repetitive use, or past injury, these include issues with the Achilles tendon, labrum, meniscus, patella, and rotator cuff, as well as carpal tunnel syndrome, ITB syndrome, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, tendinitis, and tennis elbow.
Joint Hypermobility Syndrome
Loose connective tissue and joints being able to move beyond their usual range of motion can result in complications and injury. Certain joint-related conditions, such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), can be quite severe.
Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS)
Another disorder affecting the musculoskeletal system, MPS involves trigger points in contracted muscles that can refer pain to other parts of your body.
Injuries, disorders, and diseases affecting the nervous system are life altering, and include spinal cord injury, stroke, and tremors, as well as degenerative diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson’s. Recovery focuses on regaining the highest level of function and independence.
A disease affecting the bones, osteoporosis results in bone loss and leaves sufferers susceptible to bone breaks and fractures. A related condition is Osteopenia.
Both immediate and longer-term effects of concussions need treatment. Immediate effects include headaches, sensitivity to light and noise, balance issues, inability to focus, and cognition and neurological deficits. Even after you are cleared to return to your activity by your health care provider, treatment may be recommended in order to deal with any continued effects. We also work to mitigate the cumulative effect of repeat concussions through treatment and offer concussion baseline testing.
Motor connections must be reinforced in order to ensure a return to mobility and desired level of activity after surgery. Elective or emergency surgeries include: ACL repair, MCL repair, knee surgery, total knee replacement, total hip replacement, back surgery, spine fusion, spine decompressions, post-laminectomy syndrome, as well as gender-specific surgeries such as hysterectomy, Cesarean section, and radical prostatectomy.

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD)
The jaw joint, called the Temporomandibular Joint, or TMJ, and its surrounding muscle are often the site of discomfort, pain, and impaired function.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy and Balance Retraining Therapy
When balance mechanisms in the inner ear are impaired, both balance and coordinated movement are affected, resulting in dizziness, vertigo, and falls. Specific techniques can help improve overall equilibrium and balance, eliminate dizziness, and aid in fall prevention.
A forceful, acceleration/deceleration neck injury, whiplash may involve the whole spine, although symptoms are often first perceived in the neck. Whiplash is frequently accompanied by concussion.
