JET Physical Therapy Services
At JET Physical Therapy, we take pride in providing our patients with high quality services personalized for their unique needs. Our staff members strive to be professional, courteous and efficient.
At JET Physical Therapy the majority of our services involve treating patients with muscle, joint, tendon and ligament pain and/or injury. Our physical therapists identify deficiencies in flexibility and strength that occur as a result of injury or pain and then design an exercise program to restore proper movement and strength. Restoring the sufficient amount of strength and movement helps individuals resolve their pain and allows them to return to their desired activities. The physical therapist will use multiple resources to manage pain and assist in the recovery process. Common injuries we provide care for are tendonitis, muscle strains, arthritis, and joint sprains.
Rehabilitation following surgery can be a challenging process. Our physical therapists at JET can help you through the process with designing the appropriate treatment plan. The plan will include appropriate rehabilitation exercises, pain management, and education on returning to your desired activities. The most common surgeries we provide care for are total knee replacement, rotator cuff repair, and ACL reconstruction.
Individuals require care in their home when their condition doesn’t allow them to be able to receive outpatient services. JET collaborates with three area home health agencies to provide physical therapy services to serve these individuals need of therapy. The therapist will travel to the patient’s home and provide care to allow the patient to safely function within the home and work toward the goal of functioning outside the home again.
At JET Physical Therapy we provide sports medicine services in the clinic for athletes who encounter sports injuries or who need rehabilitation following a surgery after a sports injury. Our staff also provides sports medicine services to area high schools throughout the school year. The services include game coverage at the schools and weekly visits to each school to evaluate and treat athletic injuries.
We provide treatment for individuals with one particular type of vertigo called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). BPPV results in the displacement of particles in canals of the inner ear that trigger the sensation of dizziness (i.e., feeling like the room is spinning), nausea/vomiting, sweating. Treatment is performed by a physical therapist and consists of placing the body and head in specific positions to return the particles to the proper location within the inner ear. Typically, only 1-2 physical therapy visits are all that is necessary to resolve the dizziness.
