McKenzie Certification (Cert. MDT)
Therapists who are McKenzie certified have passed an extensive four part series of classes to practice a specific type of evaluation and treatment of spinal conditions. We have McKenzie Certified therapists at our Bensalem, Center City and Villanova offices. In additon to our certified therapists, we have therapists who have taken multiple courses on this technique and have successfully integrated it into their treatment model.
Therapists specializing in A.R.T use a patented, manual soft tissue release technique to treat painful problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Popular with runners and triathletes, this technique obtains quick results from anyone suffering from an over-use injury such as tendinitis/tendinopathy. Each one of our locations has a physical therapist certified in this technique.
Vertigo may be due to an inner ear, or vestibular disorder. Physical therapists often specialize in an area of therapy called vestibular rehabilitation, in which therapists work to improve the symptoms of dizziness and the balance problems that you may also experience. Therapy for vestibular disorders takes many forms. The type of exercise utilized depends upon the unique problems that the individual demonstrates during the evaluation. Some exercises are geared toward helping with balance, some with helping the brain resolve differences in the inner ear signals, and some with improving the ability to visually focus. In addition, general exercise is often prescribed to improve overall physical health and well-being.
Some conditions that may be helped with Vestibular Rehabilitation:
BPPV – Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
Post Concussion Syndrome
MDDS – Mal de Debarquement
Our Blue Bell, Center City, Chalfont, Cherry Hill, Lafayette Hill, Lionville, Media, Phoenixville and Villanova, locations have physical therapists who are certified in Vestibular Rehabilitation and have taken advanced training in Vestibular rehabilitation.
