Physical TherapyPhysical therapy is defined as the ‘preservation, enhancement or restoration of movement and physical function impaired or threatened by disability, injury, or disease that utilizes physical means such as manual touch, physical modalities, exercise and patient education rather that by medicines or surgery’.
Physical Therapy is based on knowledge of anatomy, body systems, neurologic re-education, and therapeutic exercise. As a licensed Physical Therapist, Caroline assesses your body systems and their functions, evaluates your individual movement patterns from walking to breathing and then determines where dis-ease or dysfunction begins. Your rehabilitation program will always consist of a combination of manual therapy techniques, movement re-education, Neuro-motor retraining, and therapeutic exercise specifically designed for YOUR needs. Your program will be appropriate for your health and fitness level with your lifestyle and goals in mind.
