At Symmetry Physical Therapy we hire the best physicals therapists in Miami and south Florida and implement the newest technologies and latest proven research methods for complete and successful rehabilitation. Each therapist is trained in accordance with Symmetry’s philosophy of improving mobility, strength, and stability in a systematic approach using specific treatment techniques. All modalities of treatment have been scientifically tested and researched to improve patient outcomes..
In the initial phase of each physical therapy session the patient and therapist review the recent progress has that been made, as well as today’s current state of the injury. During every appointment the physical therapist uses several modalities to facilitate healing through increasing blood flow, oxygenation, and decreasing swelling. Our therapists determination of individualized treatments are rooted in current research and clinical case studies.
Some common modalities include:
- Instrument Assisted Myofasical Release
- Deep Muscle Stimulation
- Electrical Stimulation
- Ultrasound or ultrasound combination
- Massage therapy
- Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation
- Joint mobilizations
Patients are guided through different series of exercises and stretches as it relates to his/her injury. Each exercise the patient performs is monitored by the physical therapist to ensure proper form and maximal benefit. Exercises are prescribed to improve mobility, strength, and stability as well as to increase balance and proprioception. Exercise programs are based on the current injuries state, and progressed gradually through treatment. During physical therapy sessions, patients are constantly evaluated to assess different injury risk factors as well as other ‘weak links’ which may eventually lead to injury. Treatment programs are focused on rehabilitating the current injury, as well as preventing future injury. Our patients finish their physical therapy programs with the skills, knowledge, and education to continue safe exercise and self maintenance sessions, allowing them to become independent and injury free.
