What Is Physical Therapy?
PT is a healthcare discipline that focuses on the rehabilitation and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Using a combination of active and passive treatment interventions, Jodi can help patients recover from surgery or trauma, alleviate chronic pain, increase mobility and generally improve the quality of day- to-day living.
What are the benefits?
Patients of all ages and physical abilities can benefit from physical therapy. Even if you’re not currently experiencing any functional difficulties, a physical therapist can identify areas of imbalance or weakness that may lead to future issues and then develop a preventative program to correct them. Annual physical therapy consultations and musculoskeletal wellness screenings are fast becoming recognized as a crucial component of preventative health care.
What is Therapeutic Exercise?
Therapeutic exercise is the systematic performance of physical movements intended to remedy or prevent impairments of body functions and structures.
Therapeutic exercise is a range of physical activities, or exercises, to one or more areas of the body. This may include strengthening exercises, endurance exercises, flexibility exercises and balance and coordination exercises. The goal of therapeutic exercise is to return you to pain-free, full function.
Some benefits of Therapeutic Exercise are:
Increased wellness and fitness levels
A stronger body with better posture and capability to perform daily activities.
Avoiding surgery and saving money and recovery time
Improved balance and prevention of falls
Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation
What is Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation?
Whether you're a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, it's frustrating when an injury keeps you from the activities you love. That’s why sports medicine and rehabilitation focuses on helping athletes of all ages safely return to activity following injury or surgery. The therapist will use various tests and measures to assess and identify deficiencies in strength, coordination, balance, proprioception and range of motion. They will also look for signs of swelling and inflammation, which helps therapists understand the healing progression.
What are the benefits?
Not only do we help you heal and hasten your recovery, but we go the extra mile to teach you how to minimize your risk of re-injury. Many sports injuries result from overuse, lack of rest, improper warm-up, or poor conditioning. 406 Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy will address these issues with you, show you proper body mechanics and suggest appropriate stretching, strengthening and conditioning exercises for you.

What Is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a treatment for relieving muscular tightness, spasm, and pain, which commonly follows injuries, and often accompanies the degenerative processes due to stress and overuse of the muscles. Muscular tightness and spasm can cause compression and irritation of the nerves exiting the spine. When the nerves are irritated, they cause a protective spasm of all the muscles to which they are connected. This may cause peripheral diagnoses such as carpal tunnel, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility and chronic pain.
What Are The Most Common Conditions Treated With Dry Needling Treatment?
Dry needling is used in conjunction with other therapeutic interventions, to give our patients complete physical therapy care and the best outcomes.

What are the benefits?
This comprehensive evaluation will provide you with the information needed to reduce your pain, decrease your risk of future injury, and improve your overall performance.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization-
What is Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)? IASTM stands for Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Massage. IASTM is a process in which the Physical or Occupational Therapist uses a set of hand held instruments to break down the scar tissue and fascial restrictions in soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and nerves). This technique also includes Graston technique and cupping.
How does it work? The tools are used to find and treat the restricted areas by causing controlled microtrauma. This will stimulate a local inflammatory response, which initiates reabsorption of excessive scar tissue and facilitates the body's natural healing process. Adhesions within the soft tissue that may have developed because of surgery, immobilization, or repetitive strain, are broken down, allowing the patient to regain function and decrease pain.
Clinical Benefits include:
Increased collagen production
Restoring proper function
Speeding up recovery time
Alleviating chronic pain conditions
No downtime, you can continue activities as normal
Orthopedic & Manual Physical Therapy-
What is Orthopedic & Manual Physical Therapy?
After an accident or injury to your body, your muscles and joints around your injury become painful, stiff, inflamed and very tender. This response is your body’s protective mechanism and is normal. Unfortunately, injuries can lead to increased pain, tightness and weakness. We like to take a hands-on approach and use a combination of mobilization, manipulation and massage techniques to help restore your mobility. Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (OMPT) is a “hands-on” treatment provided by our physical therapist. Treatment options include muscle stretching, passive movement of affected body parts through moving joints in specific directions at different speeds to regain movement (manipulation and joint mobilization), or therapist applying resistance to the patient body part to improve muscle activation and timing. Some soft tissue techniques may also be used to enhance the function and mobility of muscles and tissues.
What are the benefits?
A skilled human touch by one of our therapists is essential to our treatment philosophy at 406 Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy. Your appointment, generally 45-60 minutes, is structured to allow you the time necessary with our therapist to ask questions and make a real impact on your condition. Clinical studies have consistently demonstrated that the combination of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy, education and exercise is the ideal approach to effective conservative (non-surgical) and post-operative care of movement disorders. An informed patient is a successful patient.
