What is Physical Medicine?
Physical medicine, or physiatry, is a medical branch aimed at restoring and enhancing the quality of life for those suffering from disabilities. At MV Integrative, our resident physiatrists provide treatment options for muscular, bone, joint, and ligament injuries. Dedicated to the improvement of your well-being, we want to help enhance your mobility and return you to an ideal quality of life.
Our dedicated staff of physiatrists is happy to help patients with a variety of physical concerns. Mobility should come naturally and without compromise. To feel like yourself, you must feel good in your own body. Our most common patient concerns include:
Aches and Joint Problems
Pain in the joints is often due to direct and sometimes indirect injury. Those experiencing stiffness and difficulty moving will benefit from our physical therapy treatment options.
Stress and Depression
Your body is more than the sum of your parts. At MV Integrative, we believe in a holistic approach to every medical issue. As such, we offer exercise and physical therapy options for those struggling with stress or depression.
Our Treatment Options
Classic Physical Therapy
These treatments provide mobility assistance through heat treatment and light exercise. The best way to heal the body is to help it heal itself. Through a series of guided exercises, your body will build muscle mass, improving your overall abilities.
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)
This popular form of physical therapy involves a thorough examination of your body’s soft tissues. Our specialists use regionally oriented protocols to determine the physical causes of your pain and alleviate them. We also examine perpetuating factors that may contribute to and prolong your muscular tension.
This type of psychotherapeutic therapy makes use of your body’s natural movement to promote well-being. Our movement therapy sessions work to improve emotional, social, cognitive, and physical wellness through communal dance and exercise.
