Medical Conditions

Some medical conditions can alter nervous system responses. This can result in sensory changes including pain or numbness and motor changes such as muscle spasms or weakness. Physical therapy will help to restore strength, flexibility and endurance in order to improve functional mobility and maintain as much independence as possible. Modalities can also promote sensorimotor improvement, often decreasing the need for long term use of medication. The treatment plan will also include education to prevent injury and develop safe health and fitness routines.
