Expert Physical Therapy, Massage And Training
We believe that every person—regardless of age, physical condition, and prior experiences—has the potential to perform, move, and function more efficiently.
No Excuses for Inactivity
We feel that a person’s physical abilities are determined primarily by the quality, variety, and frequency of exercise that they perform during their life, not the diagnoses they accrue over the years.
Beat Pain And Get back To Life
We aim to minimize the pain and disability of acute injury and maximize long-term function.
Our Restorative Techniques Will Help You Move like You Used To!
We believe that the human body has the capacity to deal with most kinds of physical injury, and the role of the physical therapist is to guide the body’s restorative and adaptive responses.
Specialized One-On-One Therapy To Meet Your Specific Physical Needs
Our mission is to maximize pain-free function and whole-body physical health in those suffering from chronic injury and pain.
Reach Your Physical Potential
Our goal is to decrease the risk of athletic overuse and traumatic injury by optimizing biomechanics.
Physical Therapy Services
Our approach to rehabilitation is unlike most physical therapy offices. The strength of our practice is the individualized one-on-one nature of our approach. We feel that only through patient-specific manual therapy, specialized restorative exercises and biomechanical optimization will people beat their injuries and return to normal. So, in our practice we do not utilize unlicensed practitioners to supervise exercises that could easily be performed at home or in a gym. We use our time to perform hands-on techniques (that many therapists do not know or do not have time to use) and to teach exercises to help restore normal tissue quality and enhance biomechanics. Each session has a specific focus that is determined upon completion of a consultation.
Movement and Biomechanical Analysis
Although our therapists include an assessment of biomechanics within every physical therapy consultation, some movements and activities are so complex that a specialized evaluation process is required to establish all relevant biomechanical variables. Additionally, many tasks such as jumping and running occur too quickly for biomechanical flaws to be examined with the naked eye. So, at Lucas Physical Therapy, we use a slow motion video analysis system to quantify joint motion.
This analysis helps guide corrective exercises and also serves as a way to monitor progress.
Although we have the skill and expertise to treat any kind of musculoskeletal disorder, there are some conditions that we are especially effective at treating. These specialties are either a function or our specialized manual therapy skills, years of experience working with similar problems and/or knowledge of the scientific research related to the conditions.
