Back and Neck Pain
Not all back or neck pain is the same. At Lee Miller Rehabilitation, we focus on identifying the source of the problem, not just the symptoms.
Joint Replacement Therapy
The best time to start physical therapy if you are having a joint replaced is before the surgery. At Lee Miller Rehabilitation, we believe that the stronger you can make a joint before the surgery, the faster it will heal and the better your mobility will be, after the surgery.
If you are dealing with a rotator cuff injury, you may require physical therapy. Often physical therapy can prevent the need for surgery.
Can anything be done to help with TMJ pain? Yes! We start by assessing your neck to see if your posture is affecting your jaw biomechanics.
Pre- and Post- Surgical Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation using post-surgery therapy after back or orthopedic surgery is a critical component of a successful recuperation.
Sprains, Strains, and Tendonitis
If you have experienced a sprain or a strain that has not improved with RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) treatment, you may require physical therapy.
Muscle Bruises, Muscle Ruptures, and Myositis
A bruised muscle, called a contusion, is an injury to the soft tissue such as the muscle fibers, connective tissues, and/or the blood vessels and nerves. In more severe cases, physical therapy may be recommended.
Degenerative Disc Disorder
Because degenerative disc disease (DDD) can weaken the spine significantly, strengthening the back, neck, and core muscles with physical therapy may be an essential treatment.
Degenerative Joint Disorder
Degenerative Joint Disorder, also known as osteoarthritis, is a common “wear and tear” disease that occurs when the cartilege in a joint disintegrates.
Physical Therapy can be an effective way of managing and resolving pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis. Excerises to strengthen and stretch the plantar fascia and achilles tendon can completely alleviate the pain.
Physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, even for those who suffer from neurologic conditions that affect their physical mobility. Treatments that target flexibility, strengthening and cardiovascular conditioning can improve balance, walking and overall functional ability as well as slow disease progression. Studies also show that regular aerobic exercise can slow the development of cognitive impairment in those suffering from neurologic conditions and in the elderly. Our treatment for patients in need of neurologic rehabilitation may comprise a single technique or a combination of therapies to suit the individual’s need. Lee Miller Rehabilitation treats patients diagnosed with neurological conditions and diseases such as:
For most stroke patients, rehabilitation involves physical therapy. The aim of physical therapy is to have the stroke patient relearn simple motor activities such as walking, sitting, standing, lying down, and the process of switching from one type of movement to another.
People with chronic conditions like early onset Parkinson’s disease often find physical therapy can improve strength and flexibility, and decrease pain and stiffness. Physical therapy can also help address certain symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease such as dystonia, freezing and gait.
Physical Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis involves exercises to strengthen muscles and improve gait (how you walk), balance, and coordination. It also involves stretches to help maintain mobility and prevent muscle spasms.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Rehabilitation is an important part of recovery after a traumatic brain injury. It may include physical, occupational, and speech therapy as well as mental healthcare and social support.
Physical Therapy can aid patients suffering from all stages of Huntington’s disease. The goal is to keep patients as active as possible, strengthen muscles, stabilizing gait and balance, prescribe and fit assistive devices, and enhance overall fitness and wellness.
Concussions, also known as mTBI (mild Traumatic Brain Injury), can be aided by physical therapythrough help with balance, stability, focus, gait and mood.
Exercise is the treatment of choice for patients with balance and gait abnormalities. Usually, a precise exercise program incorporating balance, gait, strength training, endurance and flexibility training is designed and implemented.
Physical Therapy can provide an exercise program designed to reduce vertigo and dizziness and improve balance.
