Physical Therapy

The Acceleration Program at Ortho Louisville is designed to help patients transition from Physical Therapy back to sports and high level activities. Through advanced training, we can reduce the risk of further injury and accelerate a return to sports. 

Dry needling is a technique that uses thin needles, similar to acupuncture. They're called "dry" because they don't have any medicine or liquid on them. These needles are carefully inserted into specific areas of the body where there is muscle pain or tension. The aim is to target trigger points, which are tight knots or bands in the muscles that can cause pain/discomfort. By targeting these trigger points, dry needling helps release knots, reduce muscle pain or spasms, and improve flexibility and range of motion.

Myofascial cupping is a therapeutic technique that involves the application of suction cups to the skin's surface over areas of muscle tension or trigger points. It is primarily used to address issues related to the fascia, a connective tissue that surrounds muscles and other structures in the body.

 

These cups create a suction effect, which gently lifts your skin and underlying tissues. You might feel a mild pulling or stretching sensation as the cups are applied. The cups can either remain stationary or be moved around on your skin. Cupping aims to improve blood circulation, stimulate the lymphatic system, relax tight muscles or trigger points, reduce inflammation, increase range of motion, and provide pain relief.

 

Gait analysis is a type of assessment that physical therapists use to evaluate a patient's walking pattern and identify any abnormalities or inefficiencies. Gait analysis typically involves a comprehensive evaluation of the patient's movement patterns, muscle strength, joint range of motion, and balance.

 

Based on the findings of the gait analysis, the physical therapist will then develop a treatment plan tailored to the patient's specific needs. This may include exercises to improve muscle strength or range of motion, balance training, or use of assistive devices such as braces or orthotics.

Our physical therapy team is always striving to be on the cutting edge of new techniques and treatments and work directly with our physicians to achieve the best patient outcomes available. They continue their education by observing the physicians in the clinic and attending continuing education seminars each year. This helps them adjust their models of rehab to provide the best all-around care.
