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!

Physical Therapy can help you avoid rotator cuff surgery.

rotator cuff

The humerus, clavicle, and scapula are the three dominant bones that make up your shoulder. The rotator cuff is made up of four tendons and muscles that work together to keep your arm bone in the socket of your shoulder blade while allowing your arm to raise and rotate. Although rotator cuff damage may necessitate surgery in some cases, recent research suggests that a physical therapy rehabilitation program can be just as effective as surgery. The first line of treatment for rotator cuff injury is to reduce inflammation with anti-inflammatory medications and strengthening exercises. The less inflammation there is, the better a person’s ability to perform strengthening and stretching exercises will be.

Physical therapy promotes proper movement to stimulate cells to lay down collagen along the lines of stress, resulting in healthy, strong tendons and a faster recovery. An effective rehabilitation program may include the following components:

  • stretches to promote ease of movement
  • exercises that isolate and train each muscle group separately
  • exercises that improve scapula movement and control
  • passive exercises that move the joint through its range of motion, performed several times per day with the assistance of a therapist, the other arm, or a machine (ROM)
  • Light-weight ROM exercises
  • Elbow, wrist, and hand flexion and extension exercises

Physical therapy is essential in the treatment of rotator cuff tears. Many people with rotator cuff injuries can achieve comparable pre-injury strength and motion without surgery by following a protocol that includes warming up, stretching and strengthening, post workout icing, and anti-inflammatory medications. Following a thorough evaluation, we can design a personalized rehabilitation program to get your shoulder back in the game.

Your rotator cuff tear can get better at Performance Physical Therapy, we are both experience and dedicated to help you heal and get back your shoulder’s health.
