Our whole body approach to orthopaedic care includes a complete musculoskeletal and postural examination; biomechanical and gait analysis. We will test the strength, endurance and function of specific musculature as well as look at joint mobility and stability. Most importantly we will perform special testing in order to determine the source of your symptoms.

We treat all types of orthopedic issues and our therapist will work with you to create an individualized program for you. We feel strongly that it is important for our clients to regain their core control in order to create a strong foundation for normal, pain free movement.

Our whole body approach to orthopedic care includes:

  • A 1 hour evaluation that includes a complete musculoskeletal and postural examination.
  • An effective clinical approach that includes hands on therapy and exercise. This combination promotes healthy and efficient joint motion, maximal muscle strength and endurance and improved ease for all daily function.
  • Our hands on (or manual) approach to soft tissue healing includes joint mobilization and/or manipulation, trigger point release, myofascial release, muscle energy techniques, therapeutic exercise prescription, medical exercise therapy (MET), biofeedback, behavior modification, patient education, stretching, neuromuscular facilitation and much more!
  • At Universus Physical Therapy, we are very passionate about getting to the root cause of your pain/symptoms. We believe that it is best to consult with functional medicine practitioners, clinical social workers, Naturopath Doctors, and even yoga teachers for a multi-disciplinary approach to physical therapy and optimal health.
