Techniques You Can Trust

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy allows you to exercise and walk without bearing your full weight. This can make movement less painful. Plus, the buoyancy of the water makes exercise easier on your joints, and the viscosity of the water creates resistance.

This type of therapy is beneficial if you need to:

  • Protect your joints (for instance if you suffer from arthritis or osteoporosis)
  • Rehabilitate with an emphasis on cardiovascular and strength conditioning

Aquatic therapy may also help you if you:

  • Are recovering from surgery
  • Have lower back pain
  • Have had multiple injuries

It can also help if you suffer from a neurological condition, such as:

  • A spinal cord injury
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Lou Gehrig’s disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
  • Multiple sclerosis

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation is a hands-on and exercise-based program. The specialized therapy aims to improve your balance and reduce dizziness-related problems.

This type of therapy is beneficial if you suffer from:

  • Dizziness
  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo
  • Neck-related dizziness
  • And migraines

It can also help patients who have had a stroke or brain injury and those who fall frequently.

At your appointment, a physical therapist will evaluate your symptoms and review your medical history. He or she will identify any problems with how you walk and issues with your:

  • Balance
  • Neck motion
  • Visual stability

The caregiver will also examine your risk of falling and other potential problems. Based on the findings, your therapist will develop a plan of care. Enloe clinicians use specialized tools, including BalanceMaster and RealEyes infrared goggles, to make an accurate diagnosis.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy

Cranio-sacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on technique that releases tension deep in the body. It can help relieve:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Some side effects of cancer
  • And more

Geriatric Therapy

Several Enloe therapists are Certified Exercise Experts for Aging Adults (CEEAA®). These caregivers have special training to help improve quality of life throughout patients’ lifespans.

Our therapists provide fall assessment and risk reduction assessments to help keep you safe. They are also experts in caregiver training.

Hand Therapy

Hand and arm therapy can help reduce your pain so you can perform daily activities better. It can also help improve your:

  • Coordination
  • Strength
  • Range of motion
  • And functional use of your arm

Our therapists work with patients who have:

  • Fractures
  • Repetitive injuries
  • Nerve injuries
  • Neurological deficits
  • And post-surgical needs

These caregivers are trained in the fabrication of custom orthoses. These devices are designed and fitted to the body to help with:

  • Rehabilitation
  • Pain
  • Increasing independence
  • Protecting or supporting an injury
  • Or controlling alignment

Home exercise programs are tailored to each patient’s needs. Additionally, some therapists are Saebo-trained and can provide fitting and training of dynamic orthotics if you have limited hand, elbow or shoulder function.

Joint Replacement Therapy

Therapists play a critical role in joint replacement therapy.

Before surgery, you may need to attend a class to learn:

  • What to expect during your hospital stay
  • How to prepare your home for your return
  • What your loved ones should expect
  • The critical role exercise plays in successful recovery
  • And more

After your procedure, you will work with a physical therapist in the hospital. Depending on the surgery you have, your condition and support structure, you may begin therapy a few days after leaving the hospital.
