How we do it
Each appointment begins with hands-on manual therapy by a licensed physical therapist to address your unique needs. Each therapist has either already completed or is in the process of completing a fellowship in manual therapy. This extra fellowship training in manual therapy has allowed our PTs to become highly skilled in assessing the quality of your movement and providing the necessary spinal and/or soft tissue mobilizations to improve your function. At Foundation Physical Therapy we take a unique team approach where all of our therapists collaborate to provide the best care. For continuity of care each patient is assigned to a specific therapist whom they will see at each appointment.
The remainder of your treatment will be individualized by your physical therapist to meet your specific needs whether it be improving your strength, balance, mobility, decreasing pain, or improving functional performance. You will also be given a personalized home exercise program to do between appointments in order to ensure the quick results you desire.
What Makes Us Different
What makes Foundation Physical Therapy different? Purely the fact that we aim to be different. We refuse to settle. We often hear patients say “the last clinic I was at didn’t even look at that!” We take the patient as a whole. You are not just a torn rotator cuff, a sprained ankle, neck or low back pain. We make sure to do whole body screens for every single patients. We want to know everything we need to help get you on your way as fast as we can.
At Foundation Physical Therapy we get you where you want to be. We know you’ve been to clinics in the past that didn’t help you. So have we. We are not that clinic. Patients walk through our doors unsure of what to expect or they expect the same thing they had elsewhere. We thrive on these moments. We know what physical therapy should be. We understand the frustrating process of healing and the struggle that having pain creates. Every single patient has unique personal goals for therapy so we tailor everything to get you there. 16 years old with a torn ACL and dreams of playing college sports? We’ll help you impress the scouts. 65 years old with frozen shoulder and goals of getting back on the tennis court? If you give us the effort we’ll be your best resource to get you back in the game. Runner with sciatica that won’t stop? We’ve done it before and we’ll give it everything we have to do it again. Your goal is what drives us. Your goal becomes our goal. Yes sometimes these things take time but we have the specialized skills to help you reach your goals.
Notice the word “we” shows up a lot. Its a team effort from working with our patients, their doctors and all of our staff as a unit. We don’t want patients to say “well I only do this because my therapist said so.” Instead the goal is for patients to say “well I do this because my therapist explained how my injury works and I understand how to help manage my symptoms.”
At Foundation Physical Therapy we pull out all the stops. We utilize Functional Movement Screens, the Regional Interdependence Model (video below), Blood Flow Restriction, Dry Needling, Home Exercise Programs, Cupping and ALL OF OUR therapist are Fellowship Trained (which means we don’t use Physical Therapy Assistants).
