Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is the use of exercise to develop, maintain, and restore the maximum amount of movement and functional ability possible in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by injury, disease, or the process of aging.  Physical therapy is a return to function.

Post Operative Rehabilitation

If you have recently had surgery performed by an orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon, you may have been told that you will require physical therapy.  Physical therapy is essential in order to return to normal activities of daily lifting, recreational activities, and gainful employment after surgical intervention.   At Rebound Physical Therapy, we believe it is essential to follow physician protocol regarding your operative procedure.  Post operative rehabilitation involves modalities for pain and edema control, the restoration of range of motion through the affected area, and strengthening of the affected area.  If your physician has recommended physical therapy after an operative procedure, please contact Rebound Physical Therapy and one of our trained physical therapists can answer any questions you may have.

Work Conditioning

Often times after an individual has been out of work for an extended period of time, their overall conditioning level deteriorates to the point where they do not have enough physical strength to perform their work activities.  Work conditioning involves a supervised exercise regimen by a physical therapist that is geared toward assisting and individual to meet the physical demands of their previous occupation.  Work conditioning employs resistance strength training and work simulation in association with instruction in proper body mechanics.  If you have suffered a work-related injury and your medical care provider has recommended work conditioning, please contact  Rebound Physical Therapy and one of our trained physical therapists can answer any questions you may have.

Functional Capacity Evaluation

Functional Capacity Evaluations are performed at our clinics located in Concord Township and Brooklyn by a physical therapist who is also a Certified Work Capacity Evaluator.  Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) are an assessment of an individual's ability to perform work-related activities.  FCE's are a useful tool in determining whether an individual is capable of returning to work after and injury or whether or not an individual may be disabled.  An FCE usually takes three to four hours to complete.  If your physician has recommended an FCE, please feel free to contact Rebound Physical Therapy and we will assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

 

Theraband

Theraband is a large piece of rubber band which is available in various levels of resistance.  It is used as a tool during strengthening activities for the musculature of the upper extremity, lower extremity and core.  Theraband is a useful tool as it is easy to work with and can be stored in a small area, making it an excellent choice to utilize with a home exercise program.

 

 

Dry Needle Therapy

Dry needling is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points (painful knots in muscles), tendons, ligaments, or near nerves in order to stimulate a healing response in painful musculoskeletal conditions.  Dry needling is not acupuncture or Orient Medicine; that is, it does not have the purpose of altering the flow of energy (“Qi”) along traditional Chinese meridians for the treatment of diseases.  In fact, dry needling is a modern, science-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction in musculoskeletal conditions such as neck pain, should impingement, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, or low-back pain.

 

 

Women's Health/Pelvic Floor Therapy

Physical Therapist Megan Houser has developed a new Women's Health specialty program at our North Olmsted location that includes, but is not limited to, pelvic floor dysfunction. Recent studies indicate up to 57% of middle-aged, post-menopausal women suffer from urinary incontinence, and that number grows to 75% of older women in nursing homes. Research has shown that individuals with incontinence have altered pelvic floor muscle contractions. Physical therapists specialize in evaluating and training these muscles that are weak, lack appropriate length and/or demonstrate altered firing patterns. If you have struggled with incontinence, call our North Olmsted office and let us help you address the problem and potentially avoid surgery.

 

Custom Hand Splinting

Custom hand splints are used to treat a wide variety of upper extremity conditions.  Custom hand splints are fabricated in the clinic by a trained physical therapist.  The therapist uses a type of thermoplastic which becomes pliable when heated, enabling the therapist to mold the splint to the individuals injured area.  When the plastic cools, it hardens into a rigid splint.  Custom hand splints can be used in the treatment of the wrist, hand, fractures of the finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, as well as many other ailments of the upper extremities.  If you think you may be a candidate for a custom splint, please contact Rebound Physical Therapy and one of our trained physical therapists will be more than happy to discuss your options and answer any questions you may have.

 


What should I wear to my appointment?

 

I have been playing sports, namely basketball, since I was five.  I have always had my share of bumps and bruises but  never that “big” injury, until in 2008 when I came down wrong in a basketball game and tore my ACL and MCL.  It truly was one of the scariest experiences of my life. I didn’t know if I would be able to walk right again much less play the game that I love.

 I can tell you that today, not only can I walk right, but I am back on the court and doing everything I could before my injury. The reason? Jon, Dave and Chet at Rebound Physical Therapy.  From the day I came in, just 3 days after I had torn everything, to the therapy that I started just 72 hours after surgery to the final session and my workouts today, I owe it all to Rebound.  I wouldn’t be where I am today without the guys at Rebound. From Jon, Dave and Chet to the owners, they take special care with every individual who walks through the doors. My relationship with them has extended beyond the Therapy sessions and I consider every one of them to be good friends of mine.

 I would (and have) recommended Rebound to anyone trying to come back from an injury, no matter what age or what injury. They are the best and I wish only the best for them as their company continues to grow.
