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!

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.

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!

Is Your Balance the Problem?

4 Simple Tests to Find Out

Balance means different things to different people.

For a 5-year old, balance means learning to ride a bike without training wheels.

For an adult, balance means successfully catching yourself, as you’re carrying an armload of groceries, after tripping over the bike that the 5-year old left laying in the driveway.

For an older adult, balance can be as simple as staying upright as you walk or regaining your footing without falling if you stumble.

Good balance is extremely important for an older person in maintaining their independence, a common fear expressed by our elderly patients.

Falling and breaking a bone, especially in the hip, knee, foot, or ankle, often leads to the loss of independence and in some cases, even death.

Fortunately, early attention to the problem can help you maintain good balance throughout your life.

Balance Can Be Complex

For most people, balance begins slowly diminishing starting in their 40’s. Every person of middle-age should be adding balance training to their exercise routine.

Balance training is equally important as cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training.

In fact, cardio, strength, and flexibility training all play a role in maintaining, even increasing, your ability to react to challenges to your balance.

Balance can be complex and is affected by any number of factors …

Medications, inner ear problems, vision problems, and blood pressure are just a few examples of factors that adversely affect your balance.

Physical therapy focuses on the roles your muscles, bones, joints, and nerves play in creating good balance.

Below are 4 simple tests you can do at home to evaluate your balance.

If you experience any trouble while performing these tests, please visit your physical therapist for a more comprehensive evaluation and see your doctor for a full check up.

Part 1 - 1-Leg Standing Balance Test

This is pretty self explanatory. Stand on 1 leg without holding onto anything. Normal balance is one minute, less than 30 seconds will need some work.
