When you are injured you want the best possible care and you hope to recover quickly with minimal interruption to your training. This is not too much to ask for, right? Well depending on your injury your expectations of recovery can be unrealistic, but receiving the best possible care and getting the correct expectations for recovery should not be. And when you look for a physical therapist to help you recover you have a choice. So how do you make sure you are making the right one? Research. This can be asking a friend or family member who has seen a physical therapist, getting a referral from your doctor, or searching online and reading the reviews and websites of those physical therapy companies in your area. I would recommend doing all three as no two clinics or therapists are the same. And who you choose can mean the difference between you hitting that next race goal, or sitting on the sideline watching.
At Synergy Manual Physical Therapy we hope that your research leads you to us. As a previous physical therapy patient and as a physical therapist who has worked for several companies I can attest that most physical therapy companies treat you in a large open room, spend little one-on-one time with you with direct manual treatments, and often keep you busy doing exercises that are below your physical ability level. This is what sets us apart. At Synergy Manual Physical Therapy we pride ourselves on spending quality time with each patient and making sure each treatment is unique to you. You will be brought into a private treatment room every visit where our therapists who are manual therapy specialists will re-assess you each visit and work with you directly to correct the problem. We also use a variety of manual techniques and treatment approaches to make sure you are getting the best treatment that is individualized to you and your injury. We utilize the latest treatments that includeTrigger Point Dry Needling, cupping, neuromuscular facilitation, and the latest manual techniques to improve joint and soft tissue function.
Whether you are a weekend warrior or an elite athlete we know that you need to not only recover from your injury but make sure that it does not return. The therapists at Synergy Manual Physical Therapy specialize in the assessment and treatment of movement disorders which means not just assessing your painful area, but finding the root of the problem which can actually often be away from the site that actually hurts. Seemingly small asymmetries in one joint or muscle can eventually cause "wear and tear" on other joints, especially in athletes that perform repetitive motions for long periods of times such as long distance runners or cyclists.
So when you are deciding to see a physical therapist we know that you do have a choice in who you see, and that your choice can make a big difference. I hope that this article helps to reinforce your research that the therapists at Synergy Manual Physical Therapy are the top therapists in the Pikes Peak region to get you back on your feet quickly and effectively and make that next race a success.
