ALLEVIATE PAIN

By utilizing a wide range of physical therapy treatments we can alleviate and manage your pain in an effective and healthy way. If you suffer from chronic pain caused by osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia, physical therapy can help by addressing the inflammation, soreness, and stiffness associated with these conditions, while also helping produce the natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body such as endorphins.

INCREASE MOBILITY

When you’re in pain, physically exerting yourself can feel like the last thing in the world you want to do. But staying huddled up in bed can be even more detrimental to your recovery. At Stargate Physical Therapy we can get you back on the path to mobility in a compassionate and encouraging way. By increasing your mobility through a myriad of treatments or exercises we can reduce the stiffness and soreness you’re suffering from, and help you gain your independence back. We also specialize in sports injuries and can put together a comprehensive plan to help you regain the strength and mobility you’ve lost since being sidelined.

Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercise is an integral part of physiotherapy intervention.  Exercises are aimed at improving range of motion, strength, flexibility, balance and endurance.  At Stargate we often use a combination of these interventions for maximum benefit of our patients.
