At PhysioDC we take an eclectic approach to patient treatment. Or goal is to find the most effective means of getting you back to your ideal performance. Although there are many different ways of providing physical therapy, our treatment philosophy takes into account the following core principles:
1. We restore spinal and joint alignment through “hands-on” manual therapy and stretching techniques. All of our therapists are seasoned professionals with advanced training in osteopathic medicine and joint mobilization. Most of our patients receive some form of manual treatment with each visit.
2. We provide focused exercises that are “tailor made” for your weaknesses. Nearly all of our patients are expected to perform exercises at our clinic AND are expected to perform a weekly home exercise program. Do not be intimidated! We will make this process fun for you in the comfortable and motivational setting of our state of the art clinic.
3. We provide advice on behavioral, ergonomic, and lifestyle changes that can be made in both your work and home life that serve to lessen or remove the stimulis that may be causing your pain. Many people unknowingly have an office set-up or engage in a physical activity that is the root of their problem.
