Movement is central to a healthy life.  When your movement is impaired, your life is affected.  Physical therapy can help you recover faster and stronger after an injury or illness than simply rest alone.

In addition to speeding and enhancing recovery time, physical therapy can also help to insure your ability to move remains as strong as possible throughout your life by utilizing preventative measures, exercises, and techniques.

Physical Therapy

At Idaho Physical Therapy, we seek to coordinate and utilize both knowledge and skill as they relate to individuals with impaired ability to function due to disease or injury. Physical therapy procedures maintain, improve, or even restart neuromuscular/skeletal functions in every patient, regardless of age.

Physical therapy encompasses two main areas of emphasis:

    1. Evaluation and testing of muscles, nerves, joints, and functional abilities, including balance, transfers, and ambulation. Rehabilitation goals are accomplished through daily treatment programs, done either at home or in the clinic.
    2. Various treatment procedures include therapeutic exercises, functional training, gait training, prosthetic and orthotic training, therapeutic modalities, and manual therapy.

Our physical therapists instruct patients in a variety of exercise programs aimed at improving or regaining lost range of motion, strength, and coordination. In addition, our therapists educate every patient in proper body mechanics for their home, work place, and/or sport. Patient education is the most important element of our physical therapy services, and we highly emphasize it in all our treatment programs.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a medically prescribed treatment for individuals whose ability to function independently has been either reduced or permanently lost due to illness or injury. With a unique combination of medical and behavioral services, occupational therapists can assist people in developing the skills needed to achieve their personal independence. The special contribution of the occupational therapist is to analyze the effects of disability or developmental delay on the future of the adult or child. Programs are then designed to provide therapy either directly to the client or through the involvement of other agencies.

Sports Medicine Services
