Physical Therapy Services and Specialties

Like you, we find the healthcare trend of "one size fits all" disturbing. We offer a range of treatment options and specialties to help you reach your goals and get back your quality of life.

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy or pool therapy consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water. It is a beneficial form of physical therapy that is useful for a variety of medical conditions. Aquatic therapy uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance.

Astym

ASTYM treatment is a rehabilitation program that stimulates the regenerative healing process of the body. This approach is a non-invasive tool of physical therapy that works fast and consistently rejuvenates muscles, tendons and ligaments. It gets rid of scar tissue problems from old injuries too!

CoreAlign

Pilates-based apparatus that has been effective in functional rehabilitation of all diagnoses. The CoreAlign emphasizes upright posture and is designed to improve posture, balance, and functional movements.  Extraordinary versatility – hundreds of functional movement exercises!

Dry Needling

Dry needling is the use of an acupuncture needle by our specially trained physical therapists to stimulate and “re-set” a trigger point within a muscle which are localized areas of tightness and tenderness. When trigger points release, pain decreases and mobility increases. Dry needling works on both chronic and acute conditions.

Headaches and Neck Pain

Suffering from repetitive headaches? In a car accident and suffering from whiplash? We can help you get relief that will improve your quality of life. The staff at Willow Creek Physical Therapy knows how debilitating these conditions can be and have taken special interest in helping patients with headache and neck pain.

Manual Therapy

Manual Physical Therapy includes interventions focusing on hands-on, direct contact therapy to diagnose and treat. Our therapists all utilize a hands-on approach to treatment. This involves joint mobilizations, joint manipulation, soft tissue mobilization, or mobilization of neural tissue among others.

Post Surgical

We work closely with your doctor to ensure the speediest recovery possible. We routinely help with total joint replacements, rotator cuff repair, ACL repair, fractures, and more. Physical therapy both pre and post surgery is proven to help you recover faster and more completely.

Sport Specifc

We apply scientific knowledge to train athletes for the primary goal of improving athletic performance. We conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs and provide guidance regarding nutrition and injury prevention.

TMJ

It is estimated that 1 in every 3 people suffer from one or more of these TMJ symptoms: Headaches, Earaches, congestion or ringing ears, clicking, popping or grating sound in the jaw joints, limited jaw opening or locking, dizziness, pain when chewing, facial pain, and others. You don't have to live with these symptoms... physical therapy can help.

Vestibular

Our physical therapists provide testing and correction of BPPV (displacement of the crystals in your ears), vertigo, therapeutic techniques to decrease dizziness, rehabilitation of balance disorders, fall prevention, and other issues related to the vestibular system. Addressing these issues with your doctor and physical therapist will improve your quality of life.

Women's Health

The muscles that comprise the pelvic floor are like that of the rest of the body. Weakness and disuse can oftentimes result in urinary leakage, pelvic pain and even pelvic organ prolapse. These problems can be especially prevalent in older, pregnant, and especially athletic individuals. Physical therapy can help you address and treat these conditions.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a light touch therapy that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfuntion to improve overall health and performance. This therapy can enhance the function of membranes, tissues, fluids, and bones surrounding the brain and spinal cord.
