Therapeutic Massage

Deep tissue massage is completed by our licensed therapists to specifically target muscle tension that may have been caused by sprains or strains.  It is performed to restore function and to relieve pain.  Sometimes muscle tension can be caused by something more serious.  Our physical therapists will not only determine the cause but will effectively treat the area to decrease any pain or edema related to the injury.  The physical therapist or physical therapist assistant will use different techniques of pressure to release tension in your muscles and other soft tissues.

Balance & Vestibular Therapy

Inner ear issues can cause people to be dizzy or nauseous and feel as if they are spinning when they are standing still. By undergoing balance and vestibular therapy lead by our trained therapists, you’ll be able to correct your neutral position and correctly treat your vertigo. This decrease or eliminate the spinning, loss of balance and nausea. This positioning therapy is perfect for all ages and is very effective in the older adult who may have been told they have vertigo.

Once vertigo is decreased those with continued decrease in balance will undergo balance retraining and will be taught exercises to assist them in reducing their risk of falling. Patients will be evaluated for use of assistive devices, or even the discontinuation of assistive devices.

Neuromuscular Therapy

If you have mobility issues, neuromuscular therapy may be the right treatment for you. Our team has the skills to help you get back up and moving, get out of bed safely, and learn guided exercises. We recommend this physical reconditioning therapy for residents in retirement facilities that are close to our Fritzingertown location.

Gait Training

Learning to walk comfortably with a cane or walker is easy when you receive gait training. Recommended for stroke victims and patients affected by neuropathy, this reconditioning therapy will have you walking independently in no time. Our therapists will teach you how to take steps, place your feet on the floor correctly, and keep your balance.
