What to Expect

What Kind of Treatment Techniques Might I Receive?

Your physical therapist will develop a personalized rehabilitation program for your condition. This program can help you safely return to your desired activities. Some treatment techniques may include:

Manual Therapy

Manual Therapy

Hands-on treatments to mobilize your muscles and joints to restore and improve proper motion and strength.

Specialized manual therapy offerings at Bryant Physical Therapy include:

  • Traction
  • Joint mobilization and manipulation
  • Soft-tissue mobilization
  • Myofascial Release

Range-of-Motion Exercise

Activities aimed at improving movement of a specific joint including stretching techniques to decrease muscle tightness and help restore flexibility. There are 3 main types of range of motion (ROM) exercise: Active ROM requires very little assistance from the clinician and is done by the patient. Active-assisted ROM requires partial assistance from the clinician and is done with the patient. Passive ROM requires full assistance from the clinician and is done for the patient.

Range-of-Motion Exercise
Muscle Strengthening

Muscle Strengthening

Exercises for muscle weakness or imbalance specific to your condition and capability. Sometimes referred to as strength/weight/resistance/endurance training, muscle strengthening exercises can include the use of weights, exercise bands, and body weight. The benefits of muscle strengthening include increased bone strength and muscular fitness.

Pain and Swelling Management

Treatments to reduce pain and inflammation and enhance recovery.

Specialized pain management offerings at Bryant Physical Therapy include:

  • Dry Needling Therapy
  • Electrical Stimulation/Interferential
  • Game Ready Vasopneumatic Compression

Functional Training

Therapeutic activities incorporate the use of multiple parameters such as balance, strength, coordination, and range of motion. Functional activities are designed to safely and gradually progress as you recover to allow for achievement of your functional and recreational goals.

What Our Clients Say

Alan Ramfjord

I have been a patient and a wellness client of Bryant Physical Therapy since 2003. I have personally had both knees and left hip replaced. I have had neck surgery as well. My rehab with Bryant Physical Therapy has been excellent on all occasions. Larry, Mike, Brett and Sherri have been knowledgeable, caring and concerned about my recovery every step of the way. As a teacher and coach for 30+ years I have had the opportunity to interact with many physical therapists. I would recommend Bryant Physical Therapy over anyone else. Their knowledge is superior. They spend time with each patient and work to achieve the best outcome possible. They are very fortunate to have 3 outstanding techs working for them. Melinda, Sonya and Priscilla have a tremendous amount of experience and expertise between them. They are more than capable of managing the exercises and therapy that are prescribed. For the past 8 years I have been a wellness patient at Bryant Physical Therapy. I go 5 days a week. I have watched the therapists working with patients for literally hundreds of hours. They have been knowledgeable and caring with each patient. I have seen them having discussions with each patient. From personal experience they have changed exercises and therapy methods to help me achieve my goals. I have seen many patient’s come to Bryant’s Physical Therapy because of an unsatisfactory result from other therapists. I would recommend Bryant Physical Therapy no matter what your age or physical problem.
