ArthritisAquatic Physical Therapy - Aquatic therapy takes advantage of the physical properties of water to assist with the rehabilitative process. Buoyancy, turbulence, hydrostatic pressure, and thermal properties of water can assist with the rehabilitation of a patient. Those suffering from chronic pain, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, lumbar fusion surgery, or with a limited weight-bearing status are just a few of the many different patient populations that can benefit from aquatic therapy.
CryotherapyCryotherapy or Cold Therapy - used to cause vasoconstriction (the blood vessels constrict or decrease their diameter) to reduce the amount of fluid that leaks out of the capillaries into the tissue spaces (swelling) in response to injury of tissue. Ice or cold is used most frequently in acute injuries, but also an effective pain reliever for even the most chronic pain.

This test may be used independently, as part of the comprehensive Pre-Employment Post-Offer Employment testing, or as a component to the Injured Worker Fit-for-Duty test if necessary.
IontophoresisIontophoresis - medications are propelled through the skin by an electrical charge. This modality works on the physical concept that like charges repel each other, therefore, a positively charged medication will be repelled through the skin to the underlying tissues by the positively charged pad of an iontophoresis machine. Iontophoresis is usually prescribed for injuries such as shoulder or elbow bursitis.
UltrasoundThe first contact you will have with an Occupational Therapist (OT) will be during a scheduled evaluation. Every effort is made to schedule your evaluation within 24-48 hours of your referral. OTs utilize an individual’s history and physical examination to arrive at a treatment diagnosis and establish an individualized treatment plan to achieve your functional goals. Your Occupational Therapist will use a variety of treatment techniques that reduce pain and restore function. Some of these techniques may include passive modalities such as heat, ice, electrical stimulation, low level laser, and therapeutic ultrasound. These techniques will assist in advancement of active and constructive methods of rehabilitation. Other treatments may require custom splint fabrication for post-surgical protection or to increase range of motion.
