Our ServicesPersonalized programs for rehabilitation and performance
We have extensive training, experience, and success working with athletes of all ages. Having worked with recreational to professional athletes, together we will work through each phase of your recovery to help achieve your goals. We take every injury seriously and address both their symptoms and cause.
Spinal dysfunction can express itself in many ways. While pain is a common symptom, muscle weakness, stiffness or compromised mobility can often originate from the spine. When these symptoms interfere with daily activities such as rising from a chair, standing or walking, treatment can help solve these real life problems.
Pre- and Post-Surgery
In advance of expected procedures we’ll help you get a jump on recovery! For times when the unexpected happens, we’ll draw on extensive experience in both rehabilitative and high level performance settings to facilitate your recovery. You can feel confident that our partnership will get the best results.
Return to Play
We have developed a criterion-based system for return to play following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL-R). Not all athletes are ready physically or safe to return to play based on time from surgery following ACL-R. How do you know when you are ready?
Balance Training & Fall Prevention
Falling is the number one cause of injury and death in those above the age of 65 with an older adult falling every second in the U.S. Are you or someone you know one of those adults? We can help you reduce your fall risk, improve your balance and help you avoid losing your independence. Do not wait for a fall to happen to do something about it! Be proactive and protect yourself. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one-third of those over the age of 65 have a fall every year with 50% of those individuals not sharing that problem with their primary care provider. And with 10,000 people turning age 65 every day in the U.S. this not only becomes a significant cost to our healthcare system, more importantly it impacts individuals lives and those of their family as their resulting independence declines.
There are few things more disconcerting than having an episode of dizziness or vertigo and not knowing what to do about it. While there are many medical emergencies that can result in vertigo, we frequently see individuals that have been cleared medically as not having had a stroke or heart attack but continue to have episodic dizziness with a sense of being “off-balance” or “wooziness” and generally unstable. Matt Whitaker, PT embraced learning the nuances of vestibular rehabilitation through competency training under Dr. Susan Herdman, PhD, PT at the University of Miami in 2001 and has been specializing in this type of rehabilitation since. He co-developed the outpatient vestibular rehabilitation program at Loma Linda University Outpatient Clinics in Southern California and has implemented subsequent programs at various clinics over the past 16 years. His passion in this area of care is helping those with dizziness problems stemming from vestibular dysfunction so they can resolve their symptoms and return to their normal activities and lifestyle with confidence.
As you may have noticed extensive media coverage has shed light on the effects of concussions and their impact on athletes. While concussion in sports is getting much of the attention we also see many patients that have suffered a concussion from a motor vehicle or work accident. This area of care requires a carefully customized treatment approach as each person’s clinical presentation and complaints can widely vary. Research points to early treatment being the best approach for resolving symptoms with physical therapy being a key component of that care. Through education and treatment we can help you recover as quickly as possible and return to your prior activities in a safe progressive manner.
