Physical therapists teach patients to perform everyday tasks that others take for granted, from bathing and cooking to transferring in and out of bed. Therapists provide guidance on environmental adaptations that make mobility easier, while reducing injuries and the risk of falling.
Overcoming all Odds
The inability of patients to feel sensations or altered sensations and motions is a major challenge for the patient to overcome. Every person responds differently to a prosthetic. Coping with the emotional and environmental factors is a critical element in the rehabilitation process.
A therapist helps improve the emotional and psychological state of the patient. Despair and even depression are common in patient using prosthetics, and physical therapists provide emotional support, encouragement, and motivation. Physical therapy prepares patients for success and independence.
The Will and the Way
Patients learn self-massage techniques for desensitizing the limb, improving muscle control and preparing for movement.
Adjusting to a new center of gravity requires some degree of 'relearning' movement. Improving core and pelvic strength are essential for stability, balance, and coordination.
Gait training maintains proper movement and body alignment. Advanced technology helps physical therapists identify the slightest variances and challenges in normal gait. As your physical therapists, Healing Touch Physical Therapy will always stand by you, and assist you and your loved ones to enjoy the benefits of pain-free movement. Helping you achieve your full potential is what we do, and it's our privilege to help you get there. Thank you, and we look forward to working with you.

We strongly believe that everyone should have a clear understanding of what's going on with their body rather that relying on medical professionals for every little thing.
