WiseBody Physical Therapy

At WiseBody Physical Therapy, we tap into the innate wisdom of the body to heal and eliminate pain. Your body has the answers. Let us help you move wisely with fluidity, strength and tensegrity. 

 

Our practice is centered on the notion that every body deserves the balance and strength needed to accomplish physical goals with grace and ease. Whether that means playing a game of catch in the backyard, completing your first triathlon, taking your tennis game to the next level, or even wearing your favorite high heels again, the WiseBody team is here to help.

 

During your initial evaluation, a highly qualified physical therapist from our team will begin by listening to you to understand the history of your problem. You will be asked about your past medical and injury history and your future wellness goals. The therapist will then assess your posture, movement, gait, joint motion and strength to identify faulty patterns that are causing or perpetuating your pain. Once the therapist has identified the source and cause of your pain, you will be given specific strategies to eliminate it. Some of these may involve changing your posture or movement behavior, others may involve specific relaxation techniques (massage, breathing) or strengthening exercises. 

 

In one-on-one 45 minute treatments, you will receive hands-on manual therapy in a private treatment room. Our therapists will help to re-align and mobilize your joints and release restrictions that are contributing to your pain. You will be trained by your therapist to perform strengthening and stabilizing exercises efficiently to support the manual therapy changes, and then asked to repeat some at home on your own.
