At Greenwood Physical Therapy, we are committed to continuously updating our skills and being a leader within our industry. In addition to traditional physical therapy methods, we also offer the following specialized treatment approaches:
Fellows of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists have obtained certification in manual therapy (COMPT) and must complete a fellowship certification program after graduation. The application of advanced manual therapy techniques can be a key component in the rehabilitation process.
Evidence-based rehabilitation protocols to successfully treat dizziness due to BPPV, unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction, labyrinthitis, vestibular neuritis, Meniere’s disease, and dizziness secondary to trauma (barotrauma, perilymph fistula, labyrinthine concussion).
Manual Lymph Drainage certified (Vodder Techniques)- A gentle manual technique which improves the activity and function of the lymph vessels, and in the case of lymphedema, re-routes the lymph flow around the blocked areas into more centrally located lymph vessels that drain into the venous system.
You will work one-on-one with a Rehab Stott Pilates-certified physical therapist to see how you can get the most out of a Pilates-based exercise program. Exercises may be modified to suit your individual needs or to accommodate your injury. At the completion of the program, you will be given an individualized Pilates-based home program so you can continue at home or at a studio.
The Kinesio Taping Method is a taping technique applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused muscles, and to facilitate muscles in movement. Because Kinesio Tape is a non-restrictive, highly elastic type of tape, it allows for full range of motion and function, unlike traditional sports tape. It can provide stabilization and support during a range of activities from sport activities to activities of daily living.
Your physical therapist will video record, analyze, and review your alignment, cadence, stride length, foot strike, and overall running posture using the Hudl technique. Exercises and treatment will then be targeted to address any movement impairments contributing to pain or affecting running performance. Currently this service is available at our Ravenna location.
