At Albany Physical Therapy, PC, the physical therapists treat the whole person, considering the emotional and mental components of physical recovery. At the initial examination, the physical therapist begins with a comprehensive history and then evaluates each client’s biomechanics, joint mobility, range of motion, muscle strength, balance and agility. Importantly, the physical therapists set goals with our clients of what they want to achieve before discharge.
During treatment sessions, we often utilize hands-on manual therapy which includes joint and soft tissue mobilization. The hallmark of physical therapy is that each person is provided with an individualized therapeutic exercise program that is progressed during care. In addition, when appropriate for the client’s care, we offer the latest modalities including electrical stimulation, ultrasound, kinesio/athletic taping and Astym® Therapy, soft tissue mobilization.
