ArthritisAquatic 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.
CryotherapyUsed 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.
Carpal Tunnel SyndromeUltrasound uses a high frequency sound wave emitted from the sound head when electricity is passed through a quartz crystal. The sound waves cause the vibration of water molecules deep within tissue causing a heating effect. When the sound waves are pulsed, they cause a vibration of the tissue rather than heating. The stream of sound waves helps with nutrition exchange at the cellular level and healing. Studies have shown that ultrasound is helpful for ligament healing and clinically, for carpal tunnel syndrome, and muscle spasm.
IontophoresisMedications 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.
UltrasoundFor many patients, one of the primary objectives is pain relief. This is frequently accomplished with hands-on techniques, modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and/or heat or cold therapy. Movement often provides pain relief as well. Your physical therapist will provide you with the appropriate exercises not only for pain relief but to recover range of motion, strength, and endurance.
SciaticaParadigm Physical Therapy and Sports Science Center specializes in the treatment of patients with neurological disorders. Using various methods of tone inhibition and muscle facilitation, the patient is able to achieve the highest level of functional return. These techniques and their proper application are crucial in the rehabilitation of central nervous system disorders. Peripheral neuropathies, such as carpal, cubital, and tarsal tunnel syndromes, along with sciatica, are also expertly treated at Paradigm. Our vestibular and balance rehabilitation program is used to treat a wide variety of balance disorders.
Wound CareParadigm Physical Therapy has one of the most advanced wound care centers in the Permain Basin. Using advanced wound debridement techniqes along with start-of-the-art healing methods, the patient is able to heal with little discomfort and excellent outcomes.
Knee ReplacementIn some cases, physical therapy techniques can be painful. For example, recovering knee range of motion after total knee replacement or shoulder range of motion after shoulder surgery may be painful. Your physical therapist will utilize a variety of techniques to help maximize your treatment goals. It is important that you communicate the intensity, frequency, and duration of pain to your therapist. Without this information, it is difficult for the therapist to adjust your treatment plan.
UlcerBase u2013 red in color and may be covered with yellow fibrous tissue. There may be a green or yellow discharge if the ulcer is infected. Fluid drainage can be significant.
Aquatic TherapyParadigm Physical Therapy provides Aquatic Therapy in all three clinics. Aquatic Physical Therapy allows a patient or athlete to exercise in a controlled environment within a specially designed pool. The advantages of an aqueous environment include the reduction of gravitational forces and compressive stresses on the joints and soft tissue, the ability to optimize the patient’s range of motion, and a decrease in patient pain levels. Another benefit of Aquatic Therapy is hydrostatic pressure, effectively counteracting edema (swelling). The result is improved healing and a rapid return to normalized function.
Manual TherapyManual therapy is the use of hands-on techniques to evaluate, treat, and improve the status of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions. Following injuries to patients, Paradigm clinicians apply a large number of techniques with the ultimate objective of returning the patient to full, normal activity. Manual therapies as modality treatment are generally designed
Physical TherapyParadigm Physical Therapy and Sports Science Center’s Work S.M.A.R.T. ( Safe, Measurable, Appropriate Rehabilitation Techniques) is an industrial rehabilitation program. Our goal is to provide the most objective and measurable return-to-work environment available, anywhere. This forefront in occupational rehabilitation will not just allow the injured worker to return to his job, but also become more effective and safe through precise exercise prescriptions, biomechanical analysis, psychosocial evaluation, and educational programs. Work S.M.A.R.T. also allows early detection of inappropriate patient responses and symptom magnifications that may be inhibiting return-to-work status.
