Performance Physical Therapy

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!

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.

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!

Performance Physical Therapy experts have provided a few pointers to help reduce the risk of injury this Halloween. Halloween never disappoints, from the abundance of candy to the extravagant costumes. With all of these delicious distractions, it’s important not to overlook the dangers that could derail the magic of this candy-filled evening. Most Halloween revelers want to fill their goodie bag or bucket to the brim, but when a costume restricts range of motion or the muscles aren’t calibrated to handle the load, Halloween can be cut short. Whether it’s cutting a long costume or stretching for the adventure ahead, focusing on a few simple measures will help to alleviate a mid-adventure dilemma.

Wear comfy shoes

Wearing supportive and properly fitting shoes is essential when walking long distances and trekking across uneven ground. 

Avoid restrictive costumes

Costumes or accessories that drag on the ground or restrict full range of motion can increase the likelihood of stumbles and falls, so be sure these items are fitted appropriately. Consider wearing the costume once or twice prior to the big night to get the feel for it and better understand any restriction in movements or visibility issues.

Always stretch

Keeping the muscles flexible and strong helps to maintain range of motion in the joints, so be sure to always stretch before any physical activity – consider the following recommended stretches:

  • Hamstring stretch
  • Calf stretch
  • Groin stretch
  • Shoulder roll
  • Toe touch
  • Lateral Flexion Stretch (for those arm swingers) 

Stay hydrated

Before, during and even after trick-or-treating, it’s important to stay hydrated to keep the muscles working efficiently and effectively.

Avoid obstructive masks or eyewear

To avoid slips, trips and falls, masks and eyewear need to allow for full vision.
