Physical therapy exercises for back pain 1_edited.jpg

PHYSICAL THERAPY

  1 / Corrective Exercise & Functional Training

Corrective exercises, programmed by our physical therapists, address the root cause of your improper movement patterns, imbalances, and muscle weaknesses your body may be compensating for. We apply these techniques with targeted exercises, stretches and functional training to reduce pain, address injury, correct movement patterns, and improve strength, posture, balance, and coordination.

  2 / Manual Therapy Hands-On Techniques

Manual therapy consists of hands-on techniques including massage, soft tissue and joint mobilization, and dry needling. They relieve pain, increase range of motion, and reduce soft tissue inflammation. Our physical therapists' advanced training in anatomy and pathology helps us improve your muscle and joint strength, mobility, and function – for long-term pain relief and health. Learn more about our manual therapy techniques here.

  3 / At-Home Programming & Education

A key part of our program is teaching you how to improve inside and outside the clinic. You will access your custom treatment plan online. It includes exercises with visual aids, so you can work on them anywhere. Our team will teach you the proper technique for these movements at your 1-on-1 appointments.

  4 / In-Home Physical Therapy

In-home physical therapy provides convenient, flexible, and 1-on-1 care in the comfort of your home. In-home therapy is suitable for specific care needs (e.g. stroke recovery, orthopedic surgery, chronic conditions) or for those interested in convenience. *Please contact us to book.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

Can Physical Therapy Help a Herniated Disc?

  • Active treatments improve your flexibility, posture, strength, and joint movement.

  • These treatments typically include: core stability exercises, stretching and flexibility exercises, muscle strengthening.

  • Passive treatments like manual massage therapy techniques help reduce pain and relieve tension.

  • These treatments typically include: manual massage, hot and cold therapy, electrical stimulation, and traction

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

What is the difference between physical therapy and massage therapy?

The differences between massage therapy at a spa and physical therapy massage techniques (also known as manual therapy) are:

  • PT massage/manual techniques are provided by our licensed physical therapists who use their advanced training in anatomy and pathology to care for your body’s unique needs.

  • PT massage/manual techniques improve and rehabilitate muscle and joint strength, mobility, and function for long term pain relief and recovery.

  • Massage at a spa provides relief from muscle pain and tension on a more short-term basis. 

At Physique, our physical therapy clients often receive massage therapy (also known as manual therapy) as part of their treatment. If you have a specific illness, injury, chronic pain, or other condition physical therapy manual techniques are a better fit for you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

How long does physical therapy take for a herniated disc or a bulging disc?

Our initial physical therapy for a herniated disc or bulging disc may provide some immediate symptom relief. In our experience we see results after 6 weeks and lasting results after 10-18 weeks. This was also found in a study where improvements in pain and overall function after 6 weeks of physical therapy for a lumbar disc herniation [1]. At the 12 week mark the study participants saw significant and lasting improvement. [1]

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

What is physical therapy massage? And what types of massage are in physical therapy?

Physical therapy massage (also known as manual therapy) is hands-on techniques that relieve pain, increase range of motion, and reduce soft tissue inflammation. Physical Therapy massage types and techniques include:

  • Trigger point release: As the name implies, trigger point therapy involves identifying and releasing specific trigger points in the body that cause pain. This includes dry needling.

  • Soft tissue massage: Soft tissue massage involves direct physical pressure on the muscle and other soft tissues of the body. 

  • Myofascial releasex: Myofascial release is a technique in which the therapist uses their hands to place slow, sustained pressure on a muscle that is stiff and painful. The manual pressure loosens, lengthens, and realigns tight, stiff myofascial muscles.

  • Joint manipulation: A quick, thrust-style technique that takes a joint beyond its normal range of motion in order to improve mobility and (in some cases) help with pain. Similar to chiropracter techniques, but not the same.

  • Joint mobilization: Slower, repetitive oscillations within a joint’s range of motion limits that promote mobility and increase the range of motion in a joint.

  • Passive stretching: Extending or lengthening a muscle or group of muscles to improve range of motion and increase flexibility in an area.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

When to get a personal trainer? 

People are often cautious about starting with a personal trainer. Cost of sessions & feeling intimidated by working with a pro are common concerns. Hiring a trainer may seem like a luxury – but if you truly want to get results – it's a great investment. The improvement in your health & fitness has returns in quality of life, confidence and decreased health care costs. Our team works to make every client welcome – of all fitness levels, ages and experience – we all start somewhere!

When should you get a personal trainer? 

Here are 10 reasons why you may want to start with one of our Physical Therapist / Personal Trainers:


You Have a Specific Illness, Injury, or Condition 

If you find yourself avoiding certain exercises because of pain or skipping the gym because your 'bad' knee or 'bad' hip hurts – then we're the right trainers for you. We specialize in helping people with complex injuries recover and grow stronger. 


You Aren't Seeing Results

Getting help from an expert will dramitacally change the speed and effectiveness of your results. Whether you want to gain muscle mass or improve your confidence. We will show you results faster and help you understand your results – beyond the scale!


You're Bored With Your Workouts

Getting used to the same treadmill and dumbbell routine? We love creating programs with movements our clients have never done before. It's fun for you and for us. We'll get you out of the same old routine and into one that has you try new things.


You Want to Be Challenged

Each person prefers a different level of difficulty in exercising. We love creating programs to push you out of your comfort zone and giving you new experiences. Try one of our custom programs to re-learn the thrill of physical growth and break a serious sweat.


You Don't Know Where to Start

Everyone starts somewhere! Starting an exercise, strength or weight loss program can be intimidating, so we make sure you're comfortable with every program, technique and method.


You Want To Train For An Event (such as a local 5K, Iron Man or Physique Competition)

Interested in running in a local race? We are too! We often run local 5Ks and we'd love to train you to join us for a local event! Or if you're looking beyond local get in touch with our advanced athletic trainers so we can develop a plan specifically for your competitive event.


You Need Motivation & Someone To Help Keep You On Track

Everyone hits walls on motivation and staying on track. If you find yourself yo-yo-dieting or losing the motivation to go to the gym for serveral months, a trainer would be great for you. We'll help you see results, stay motivated and help nudge you when you aren't feeling it.


You Want to Learn How to Exercise on Your Own

Trainers don't have to be a lifelong commitment. Maybe you want to learn the fundamentals of exercise, health and nutrition and then take that knowledge back to your gym. We'll give you the tools to build a better program specifically for you.


You Want To Train For a Specific Sport

We are experts in movements at Physique, but we are also current and former athletes. We are passionate about building your body for peak performance. If you're interested in training for an upcoming sports season, get in touch with our team.


You're Embarking On a Long Outdoor Event

If you're getting ready to hike, for example, the Pacific Coast Trail, preparation is key. As outdoor lovers ourselves, we'll help you get set up with all the physical fitness needs for an endurance event like this.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

What Is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a safe, effective and efficient treatment that can give you immediate pain relief and help you get back to exercising with increased mobility. The process of dry needling involves the insertion, manipulation, and (at times) electric stimulation of a “dry” needle in a trigger point to produce a local twitch response (LTR) through the spinal cord reflex. This releases tension in your tight muscles and/or stimulates your under-active or weak muscles. The result is muscle relaxation and pain relief.
