Physical Therapy

Of all the different treatment techniques Lisa has used in her 30+ years as a PT, 'Postural Restoration' (PRI) is the most comprehensive approach to treating dysfunction and not just the resulting symptoms. 

 

'PRI' is a unique treatment approach that is not necessarily about 'standing up tall'. Rather through the use of specialized corrective exercises that address postural patterns and muscle imbalances, neuro-motor balance is achieved between the left and right sides of the body.

At TPMT we look at you from head to toe, and everything in between. If your hips are stiff and your ribcage doesn't move well, there is no way that your neck and shoulders will move well either. The other way around is true too.

An analogy I use often is that your body is like a building. If your foundation (feet and hips) is not aligned correctly, neither is your roof (neck and head). If work is done to fix just your roof, but no one looks to correct your foundation, you won't get all the way better. At TPMT, we always check your 'foundation' and your 'roof', so you will get better, faster.

Using this total body assessment and treatment approach creates results that are long term, with improvements occurring very quickly to get you back in action, as soon as possible.
