Arthritis

Physical therapy has been proven an essential part of treatment for arthritis.  While the arthritic joint itself can not be changed, the focus of physical therapy is management of the disease.  There are several key factors to managing the disease including: education on more stable positions for the joints, stabilization exercises to improve joint stability, instruction in assistive devices if needed and self stretches to improve mobility.

Connective Tissue Disorders

Connective tissue disorders, such a Marfan or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, cause systemic joint laxity of varying severity.  Joint laxity leads to instability and pain.  Both Stan Guest, PT, OCS, OMPT and Melissa Scheck, MPT have extensive experience treating these disorders.  They have both personally lived with a connective tissue disorder and have experienced the daily struggle to maintain an active lifestyle with minimal pain.  Stan has produced a unique training program in which clients learn to protectively posture and to actively stabilize the joints in safe positions throughout their various daily activities, including sport participation.

Plantar Fasciitis

Tried stretching, ice, orthotics, and still in pain? Did you know that the way you sit can irritate your plantar fasciitis? So can the way you stand and walk. We believe that 80% of the treatment for plantar fasciitis is teaching you what NOT to do. By determining what positions you are in that are over-stretching the fascia and causing an increase in the inflammation, symptoms are drastically reduced and you are given a long term cure for your symptoms.
