Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center offers a wide variety of treatment approaches applied as appropriate to the diagnosis being treated. Treatment techniques and modalities used vary greatly depending on the diagnosis being treated, the stage of the problem (i.e., acute, sub acute or chronic) as well as the specific signs and symptoms the patient presents with.

Because no two injuries are exactly alike, no two patients will receive exactly the same care. Each case will be evaluated individually and the treatment program will be designed to meet that individual's needs and to resolve that individual's problems. Additionally, every patient will progress at a different rate. Therefore, treatment techniques, exercise and modalities used will change as you recover.

Although specific treatment will be determined after you are evaluated, in general our clinic is mechanically-oriented for both evaluation and treatment. This approach, combined with appropriate exercise and instructions for home, produces a long lasting result. Modalities will be used as needed in conjunction with the above, if appropriate but are not emphasized in our clinic.

Mechanically Oriented Evaluation and Treatment

Mechanically oriented evaluation and treatment refers to the use of specific provocation tests, combined with an extensive knowledge of the anatomy and function of the involved structures, to come to a specific assessment of the structures involved. This information is then utilized to design a treatment plan most effective in resolving the problem.

Mechanically oriented therapists develop specific treatment approaches to go right to the structure at fault. They tend to use various hands on techniques such as mobilization, manipulation, mobilization with movement, frictional massage, therapist assisted stretching and strengthening exercises, all combined with various forms of exercise and/or instruction for home. Patient education is a large part of our approach with emphasis on prevention of recurrent problems.

Exercise

Exercise refers to a wide variety of types of stretching and strengthening procedures. Some are done with the therapist's assistance while others are done using a variety of exercise equipment. The equipment utilized in our clinic is specifically designed for rehabilitation, thus being safer for the injured area. Most importantly, the exercises are designed specifically for the problem the patient presents with. They are not generic and therefore, are very effective.

Instructions for Home

Instructions for home vary widely depending on the diagnosis, chronicity of the problem and stage of recovery. Instructions may include activities and/or positions to avoid, adaptive and/or supportive equipment to use, but, will always include a home exercise program, which will be upgraded as you progress.

Modalities

Modalities refer to a wide range of treatment procedures used to reduce pain, promote healing, have a mechanical effect on the tissue, or to decrease inflammation. Some modalities include electrical stimulation, ultrasound, phonophoresis, iontophoresis, heat, ice, paraffin and more.

Common Orthopedic Problems Treated

Orthopedic rehabilitation encompasses a wide range of injuries and problems involving the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and peripheral nerves. In physical therapy we work to resolve pain, limited motion, gait problems, weakness, loss of function, and to prevent recurrence. Common orthopedic problems treated include:

  • Sprains/Strains
  • Bursitis
  • Arthritis
  • All Connective Tissue Disorders
  • Tendonitis
  • Over Use Injuries
  • Various Peripheral Nerve Injuries
  • Post Surgical Repair
  • Post Surgical Reconstruction
  • Post Fracture Or Dislocation
  • Post Joint Replacement
  • Limited Motion
  • Weakness
  • Impingement Problems
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Plantar Fascitis and Other Foot Related Disorders
  • TMJ and Related Oral Fascial Pain
  • Cervical and Upper Back Pain (including "pinched nerves")
  • Low Back Problems (including stenosis, herniated discs and more)
  • All Hand Injuries (including tendon and nerve injuries and more)
Common Athletic Injuries Treated

Athletic injuries are essentially orthopedic injuries, which have a sport specific component. Our goal for the athlete is to return the patient to the sport quickly, while preventing re-injuries, through proper warm-up and training procedures.

Common athletic injuries treated include:

  • Injuries to the Shoulder
  • Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
  • Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer's Elbow)
  • Skiers Thumb
  • Illiotibial Band Syndrome (ITB Syndrome)
  • Runner's Knee
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • ACL Tears and Reconstruction
  • Jumper's Knee
  • Sprains/Strains of all the Joints
  • Overuse Injuries of all the Joints
Common Neurological Problems Treated

Neurologic rehabilitation involves injuries, disease, and problems related to the central nervous system. In physical therapy, we work to achieve maximal, independent level of function through strengthening, range of motion, coordination and balance training as well as functional activities.

Common neurologic problems treated include:

  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Cerebral Vascular Accidents (CVA or Stroke)
  • Head Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Lyme Disease
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease)
  • Guilllian Barré Syndrome
Common Neck and Back Problems Treated

Treatment for spinal injuries is a subspecialty of orthopedics and should be treated as such. As the structure of the spine is unique, there are special problems related to this area, and therefore specialized training is necessary to ensure appropriate treatment.

Because the majority of problems are mechanical, relating to specific activities, postures, and habits of the patient's life style, a mechanical solution is necessary. Our staff is expert in treatment of spinal problems with post-graduate training in the McKenzie approach of mechanical diagnosis and treatment and we have Credentialed McKenzie Therapists on staff. A thorough evaluation will be performed to identify movements, positions, and activities that aggravate the condition as well as those that will decrease symptoms. Emphasis is on active self-treatment in which the patient plays a vital role. The goal in our practice is not only to resolve the current problem, but to prevent recurrence so typical in spinal problems.

Common spinal disorders treated include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Spondylosis
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Strains/Sprains
  • Scoliosis
  • Degenerative Disc
  • Herniated Discs (HNP)
  • Bulging Discs
  • Radicular Pain/Sciatica
  • Facet Problems
  • Generalized Neck/Back Pain
  • Back Pain Related to Pregnancy
  • Sacroiliac Dysfunction
Common Hand Problems Treated

Because of the unique structure, anatomy and functional requirements of the hand, specialized training is necessary for proper rehabilitation. Hand rehabilitation is truly a subspecialty of orthopedics. We work closely with your physician to be sure appropriate treatment is being rendered for the specific surgical intervention you have received. Splinting will be done as needed.

Common hand problems treated include:

  • Post Tendon Repair
  • Joint Replacement
  • Post Nerve Repair
  • Reconstructive Surgery
  • Post Fracture
  • Strain/Sprain
  • Tendonitis
  • Crush Injuries
