Aquatic Physical Therapy-
An effective and more enjoyable environment for rehabilitation. The water is a great place to work on getting back to normal after knee or shoulder injury, back or neck problems, or just about any injury to a joint or muscle.

The moving or standing water provides the necessary resistance while buoyancy and relative weightlessness add to safety. By using aquatic therapy patients regain a higher level of strength and flexibility more quickly, which leads to better outcomes at lower overall costs. There are no swimming skills needed in order to use the aquatics physical therapy program.

Work Conditioning-
It is difficult returning to work after recovery from an injury. This program can help you get ready. The work conditioning program lasts for approximately four to eight weeks. It helps the employee regain pre-injury competence, increase endurance and help reduce the chance of a repetitive injury. You will be led through a program designed for you to return to your previous level and you can feel confident returning to work.

Helps break down scar tissue. After surgery, an injury or just plain overuse, your body responds by making scar tissue. This is gret, because scar tissue is strong, it may not be in the right position though. A.S.T.Y.M has been extremely effective in the treatment of tendonitis.

A.S.T.Y.M incorporates flexibility, strengthening, and muscle re-education. This process allows the physical therapist to work effectively on a patient in a minimal number of sessions. However, in order for A.S.T.Y.M to work, you must take an active role in your recovery by maintaining flexibility at home. We will instruct you on what steps to take through the whole process.

Sports Rehabilitation-
Sports Rehabilitation targets exercises for the trunk, core, upper and lower extremities and the back. We will personally guide you back to your sport.

Industrial Functional Testing-
Utilizing D.S.I Work Solutions Job Function Matching, we accomplish the following:

Ergonomic and Functional Job Assessment allow job design and worker technique changes which can reduce and eliminate unnecessary stressors.
Early Intervention: When a worker reports discomfort and indicates a potential injury the Injury Prevention Program assists the worker in avoiding further injury and hastens return to full health without entering the Worker Compensation System.
When a worker has an injury, medical and therapy interventions start. Lost time from work is reduced through job matching. Injured workers continue to work at tasks that Job Function Testing indicates they are capable of with out risk of further injury.

Back Injury Prevention Programs-
The Back Injury Prevention programs help patients lift weights in the correct way. A physical therapist works with a patient to eliminate bad habits and instill good ones. The program offers body mechanics training, body evaluation, repetitive lifting and bending flexibility exercise.

Physical Conditioning-
This program helps a patient in getting and staying in shape. This targeted program helps the inactive or underactive prepare for increased physical exertion. This program also includes the patient by teaching the proper way to condition muscles during home exercise. During this program Sportho will employ Stairmaster, treadmills, C.Y.B.E.X modular and isokinetic systems and an outdoor conditioning court.

Yoga is a practice that combines movement, breathing, and mindfulness to deepen and enhance the experience of one's life. By working with our Certified Yoga instructor, Jeff Martini, you can realize all of the benefits of a yoga practice, including flexibility, strength, balance, focus and happiness. He incoporates yoga asanas (poses) and concepts into individual sessions with clients, and also holds a group class.
