Back In Action helps patients help themselves down the road to recovery and paves the way for a healthier lifestyle.
Back in Action provides physical therapy services to patients with orthopedic and neurologic conditions ranging in age from pediatrics to geriatrics and for those who refuse to count the number of birthdays under their belt. Each patient undergoes a complete evaluation considering all bodily systems. Strict attention to detail is standard for Back in Action, Inc. Treating the patient as a "whole person" is an aim of the clinic, as oftentimes concurrent conditions or injuries are intertwined. Furthermore, each treatment session is considered a re-evaluation to determine whether the most effective means of treatment are executed. Each patient has his or her own recipe for rehabilitative success depending on how each responds to treatment options and the environments in which each lives. Therefore, there are no set protocols or generalized plans of care. Each treatment plan is custom made to suit the specific needs of each patient.
Back In Action’s physical therapy services focus heavily on postural endurance and sound body mechanics training. The precise scrutiny of motion analysis sets the company apart from the rest. Furthermore, the attention devoted to orthotics offers a realm of care that is not mainstream. Temporary, inexpensive orthotics are customized to each individual’s shoes, including sandals. Adequate foot mechanics can be achieved relatively easily and often drastically impact mechanics and the rehabilitative outcomes of the foot, ankle, knee, hip, sacroiliac joint, and low, middle, and upper back. Detailed attention to how each patient moves dictates the course of treatment.
Women’s health diagnoses often go unannounced due to embarrassment and/or lack of knowledge regarding the ability to rehabilitate medical issues such as dyspareunia, pelvic pain, urge and stress incontinence, retention, interstitial cystitis, and labor and delivery complications. Specializing in sacroiliac dysfunction and women’s health gives Back In Action’s patients a greater chance of recovery because of the intricate intertwining of the diagnoses. Reaching out to women’s groups will educate women on the possibilities to recover from a myriad of under-diagnosed conditions. Knowledge is power and rehabilitation will get these women "Back In Action".
