Making your physical therapy
a personal, positive experience

At Weiss Physical Therapy Associates we use a variety of modalities to help treat muskuloskeletal problems. Some are used to strengthen the muscles while others are used to relax and heal.

Treatment Modalities include:

  • Ultrasound:A treatment modality that utilizes high or low frequency sound waves, causing deep tissue/muscle warming.
  • Iontophoresis/Hybresis: Hybresis is a wireless brand of iontophoresis therapy, which is a method of delivering a medicine or other chemical through the skin using a small electrical charge, a needleless injection system.
  • Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation: Small electrical impulses are sent through the skin to the underlying nerves and muscles to create an involuntary muscle contraction, promoting blood supply to the area that assists in healing.
  • TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation): A small battery operated machine that uses electrical transmission to decrease pain.
  • Moist Heat/Cold
  • Mechanical Traction (Cervical/Lumbar)

Therapeutic Exercise include:

  • Aquatic Therapy (Hydrotrack)
  • Progressive Strengthening: Exercises used in rehabilitation to increase muscle strength, tone, size, and function.
  • Balance/Proprioception
  • Aerobic Conditioning
  • Dynamic Lumbar Stabilization: Uses flexible materials to stabilize the affected lumbar region while preserving the natural anatomy of the spine.
  • Stretching/Flexibility
  • Postural Education
  • Plyometrics
  • Body Mechanics Training

Manual Therapy include:

  • Peripheral Joint Mobilization: Joint mobilization involves loosening up the restricted joint and increasing its range of motion by providing slow velocity (i.e. speed) and increasing amplitude (i.e. distance of movement) movement directly into the barrier of a joint.
  • Soft Tissue Mobilization
  • Myofascial Release: A hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
  • Spine Mobilization
  • Massge
  • Spinal Traction
  • Muscle-Energy Techniques
  • Passive Range of Motion

Programs include:

  • Vestibular Rehabilitation: Vesibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based program for reducing the symptoms of disequilibrum and dizziness associated with vestibular pathology (disease or disorder).
  • P.E.P. (Pre-operative Exercise Program)
  • Ergonomical Assessment
  • Cardiac Conditioning
  • Work Conditioning
  • Sports Rehabilitation
  • Spine Rehabilitation
