My daughter (11 years old) developed a strange gait and some leg pain during sports practice and games. We were originally referred to a pediatric orthopedic specialist, but we were quickly brushed off and told that she would “grow out of it.” We headed to Robbins where Emily Moatz spent an hour watching her walk, testing her flexibility and asking her questions while listening and taking notes. The Robbins team immediately made a plan to work on her muscle activation and strengthening her leg. For a month, our daughter attended sessions three times a week and looked forward to it every time. The team (Emily, Heather, Nick, Dan and Mike) always created challenging and engaging activities for someone her age (think obstacle courses and fun races). Our therapy just concluded and she is feeling better, noticeably walking better and really excited to continue her exercises learned in therapy. If you have children you know that their health is at times even more important that your own and I am so grateful that the team at Robbins cared for her in a way that allowed our concerns to be seen and heard. We hope to not have to be back soon, but if she needs PT care, Robbins is the only place we will go
Best crew of P.T. s ever. Tore my shoulder up pretty bad. Only rehabbing for 3 weeks and able to get good motion with little discomfort. Also friendly happy group of kids. Excuse the kids…I’m an old timer.
Aches and pains are a common part of life. Even if you’re young or are in good health, injuries can happen to anyone. When many of us start to feel pain, we might try to take it easy for a few days until it goes away on its own. However, you can’t always bet on your injuries going away on their own. In fact, neglecting to get help can even make it worse in some cases. Injuries and chronic pain require you to get the right medical care to help you recover and prevent future problems from occurring.
One of the best ways to heal and prevent injuries and pain is physical therapy. At Robbins Rehabilitation West, we provide our patients with great physical therapy in Nazareth that can help reduce pain.
Who Should Get Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy can be beneficial for more people than you might think. Your physical therapy sessions are tailored to fit your needs for recovery, so people with a wide variety of concerns can get pain relief through physical therapy. Age-related problems, sports injuries, surgery recovery, and injuries from motor accidents are all issues you can see a physical therapist for, in addition to many others. If you’ve recently been injured or have been dealing with chronic pain, you should start considering seeing a physical therapist. At Robbins Rehabilitation West, we work with each patient to ensure that the treatment they receive is unique to them and what their situation and pain is like.
This is also a great method of pain relief for those who are trying to avoid riskier treatments, like medications and surgery. Unlike these treatments, physical therapy doesn’t come with negative side effects that can further put your health at risk. For physical therapy, you’ll mainly do exercises and stretches that increase strength and mobility in the injured areas. Your physical therapist might also recommend heating and icing the area or massages to help reduce pain.
