Performance Physical Therapy

Lorraine Jackson
I was treated for my neck and shoulders, primarily by Jennifer. I also saw a few other therapists, but not once did I have to repeat my story. The environment of PPT and the friendliness of all the staff made my visits enjoyable! I can’t believe how pain free I am! I’ve been to other therapy places; PPT is TOPS!
Joseph Ford
Always helpful professional knowledgeable. Just an all out great experience.

Before coming to PPT I saw another physical therapist about hip pain. After seven weeks there wasn’t any improvement. A friend recommended PPT and the results were phenomenal! Sean thoroughly tested my range of motion and prescribed several stretching and strengthening exercises. He progressed these weekly. He re-tested my ROM after six weeks and the improvements were remarkable. Plus the pain was gone! Sean will be my PT for life!

From the start of my PT everyone I encountered was very friendly and pleasant. I was impressed with the interaction between staff and how knowledgeable Taylor (PT) as well as the techs were when I asked questions. I would recommend this office!!!

I came to Performance Physical Therapy several years ago because I had heard good things about them, having been disappointed in other PT practices I had used over the years. Most recently, the last two sets of therapy have been with Jordan Morris, who is an outstanding diagnostician and therapist. He carefully evaluated my aches and pains and the exercises he used and therapies he applied succeeded in vastly improving my strength and flexibility. I would most definitely work with him again if I have any other issues. He is an asset to the practice.
Gary Rose
Knowledgeable, friendly, and great staff well organized.
Karen Riordan
Highly Recommend! I was extremely impressed w/the quality of care I received. The Physical therapist, Sam Bachman, had her Doctorate in Physical Therapy - was up to date on the latest treatments and had me 100% for a shoulder issue in just a few short weeks, after months of pain. I would definatly go back to PPT for any future needs!


How Long Should I Go to Physical Therapy After a Car Accident?

car accident injury treatment

When you’ve been in a car accident, you definitely want to know how long it will take you to heal. After a vehicle accident, you may require physical therapy to help you fully recover and get back on your feet.

When it comes to physical therapy after a car accident, there are three things to consider:

1. The Type of Injury

As you might expect, the type of car accident injury you suffer might influence how you are treated and how long it takes you to heal. Whiplash is one of the most prevalent car accident injuries. When the force of an accident forces your head and neck to jolt violently forward and backward, you have a whiplash injury. The muscles and tendons in your neck may stretch beyond their normal range of motion as a result of this. Whiplash can potentially harm your neck’s spinal column, resulting in serious disc problems. It may take several months to fully recover and return to your previous range of motion in your neck and back, depending on the severity of your whiplash.

2. The Severity of the Accident

Even minor car accidents can result in injuries such as whiplash, so you should always consult your doctor and get a physical examination to check out any hidden injuries that could cause pain and suffering if left untreated. In a more severe car accident, however, you are more likely to suffer a moderate to severe injury. Even if you are properly wearing your seatbelt and the airbag deploys, the impact of a more serious accident might cause major injury to your body. A dislocated knee or a broken foot, for example, can disrupt your regular activities for months.

3. Any Previous Injuries

Something that may not be entirely obvious is how past injuries may hinder your recovery time if you experience a new injury in a car accident. Scar tissue from a past injury can affect with how your body recovers a new injury. If you’ve had past injuries, especially if they happened in the same place, physical therapy may take longer. Along with treating your new injury, your physical therapist in Delaware may want to address any unresolved issues from the previous injury.
