WHAT IS MANUAL THERAPY?
We use Manual Therapy techniques to help your body heal better and, in many cases, quicker. This involves the use of our hands to help you get the stiff & painful parts of your body stop feeling stiff & painful. If it should move but it doesn't, then we will use our hands to guide it to move better. If it shouldn't move so much but it does, then we will use our hands to facilitate greater strength & stability.
Our staff includes one of the few Residency-trained Manual Therapists in the state of Michigan, as well as a Certified Functional Manual Therapist - he is one of only 500 CFMT's in the world!
WHAT INJURIES, PAINS, AND SYNDROMES DO YOU TREAT?
You can enjoy the successful treatments of a vast majority of pains and/or injuries related to muscles, joints, and nerves throughout the body. We have also achieved excellent results in rehabilitation after Joint Replacement Surgeries.
Success stories include patients dealing with everything from headaches and neck pains to low back and sciatica pains; from shoulder, elbow, or wrist/hand pains to hip, knee, and ankle/foot pains. Also, folks with chronic pains have experienced positive results and regained confidence in their bodies again.
There have also been cases where individuals were told that they were destined for surgery because their condition was “the worst my doctor has ever seen” or that they “have to live with it”. If this is you, then I want you to know that there is hope and you do not have to keep suffering. Your pain can be reduced and/or managed well enough to start enjoying your life again. In some cases, we have helped patients avoid intensive surgeries.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON MY 1ST VISIT?
Bring your smile & curiosity in preparation for the following:
A complete interview process to help me understand your story and why you are seeing us.
A comprehensive physical examination designed to explore why your painful parts hurt and orchestrate a treatment plan to get you back to enjoying your body again.
Explanations for why you are experiencing what you are experiencing and what can be done about it.
Time will be made to help you take the first steps toward your goals of managing and/or eliminating the problems that brought you to us.
