The basis for postural restoration therapy is to recognize the imbalances and typical patterns associated when an individual overuses one side or one system of the body to the point that other areas become weak and inefficient. When normal imbalances are not regulated by reciprocal function during walking, breathing, or turning, a strong pattern can emerge. This creates structural weakness, instability, and musculoskeletal pain syndromes. The therapists at Choice Therapy have special training in the postural restoration techniques to return you to normal functioning. Contact us to get a more detailed explanation of what postural restoration can do for you.

If you’ve had or are planning on having surgery, Physical Therapy can assist you with your road to recovery. We can also help people who have had nearly any type of surgery, including total knee, total hip, rotator cuff repair, all types of arthroscopic surgeries, hand repairs, and carpal tunnel procedures, get back to their pre-surgical activity levels. We will work with you and your surgeon in developing a customized rehab program to get you back to work, sporting activities, and daily living. We can also assist people in designing a program prior to surgery to allow you to be as strong as possible heading into the procedure. The stronger and more flexible someone is prior to surgery, the shorter the road to recovery often is.
