Physical Therapy

Exercise today for a healthy tomorrow

Who are we?
The Brain & Spine Center Physical Therapy is a team of physical therapists that have been selected for their advanced training and skills to work with specialty physicians of the Brain & Spine Center at St. Luke's Hospital. We are committed to the latest treatment approaches of manual therapy and other exercise technologies. Many of our physical therapy team have additional certifications and doctoral training.

What is "Manual Therapy"?
Manual therapy is an advanced level of physical therapy training that includes hands-on techniques to evaluate and treat soft tissue and joint structures. This biomechanical method of evaluation results in a more precise treatment of the exact tissues involved. After manual hands-on treatment, prescribed exercise can also be more focused to retrain movement patterns and restore normal function. Expected outcomes may include: managing pain, increasing range of motion, reducing soft tissue tension, eliminating joint inflammation, increasing joint mobility, improving joint stability and normalizing movement patterns.
