Specializing in Strain/Counterstrain Release

A gentle, hands-on treatment approach designed to restore motion, balance and health by placing the body in positions of least tension or strain.

Arthritis is a disease characterized by pain, swelling and limited movement in joints and connective tissues; it’s the leading cause of disability.  Whether you are noticing mild symptoms of arthritis or have experienced joint pain for many years, Lindemanns’s therapists will help you get more out of every day.

Regular exercise, including aerobic activity, strength training, and exercises to improve range of motion, provide a number of benefits. Your physical therapist team will work with you to develop an exercise program tailored to meet your physical needs and limitations.

Joint replacement therapy begins very soon after surgery. We will actively help you with exercises that will strengthen muscles, increase movement and help you with daily activities.

For knee replacements, your treatment may involve the use of a continuous passive motion machine (CPM) that gently bends and straightens your knee automatically. After six weeks, you may no longer need to use an assistive device such as a walker or crutches. You should be able to fully resume normal activities including work, driving, shopping and housekeeping.

Providence Physical Therapy is experienced in the proper treatment and exercises following orthopedic reconstructive and spinal surgeries, including rotator cuff, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), foot and ankle, hip and others.

In some cases if pain, weakness and stiffness in your shoulder are related to problems with your rotator cuff, physical therapy is often an effect alternative to surgical treatment.

Physical therapy for patients with fascial pain focuses on correction of muscle shortening by stretching, strengthening of affected muscles, and correcting posture or other musculo-skeletal factors.

Fascial pain therapy is typically low intensity stretching that releases tightness and pain throughout the body caused by muscle pain that is worse in certain areas known as ‘trigger points.’

Manual physical therapy techniques can focus on relaxing tense muscles and restricted joints in order to decrease pain and increase flexibility.

Soft tissue therapy applies pressure to the soft tissues of the body, including muscles. This can help relax muscles, increase circulation, break up scar tissue, and ease pain in the soft tissues. Other types of manipulation that concentrate on the joints can help loosen tight tissues around a joint, reduce pain and help with flexibility and alignment.
