What We Treat

At PMPT, we believe in a holistic approach to physical therapy. We treat the specific areas of the body mentioned but through the lens of how that part is connected to the body as a whole – the PMPT Whole Body Approach.

The PMPT Whole Body Approach

Unlike standard physical therapy services that treat a single body part when an issue arises, PMPT treats our patients based on the PMPT Whole Body Approach methodology. The reality is each bone, muscle, joint, and ligament in your body does not work alone. They work cohesively to enable your everyday activity. If this is the case, then why would we isolate body parts when treating an issue? 

PMPT takes a look at all the connecting components that may be affecting your troubled area and treats them as a whole. We do this by first starting with breathwork, then sensing the body and issue at hand, and finishing with movement training to activate and heal the impacted body part – Breathe, Sense, Move.

How We Treat

Movement Patterning

Movement repatterning exercises are a vital part of getting you back to 100%.  This is an important and vital step to maximizing results from the manual therapy aspect of our treatment sessions.  Learning how to move and optimizing joint and muscle health with breathwork is how we help joints move with fewer restrictions and reduce muscle tightness.

Manual Therapy

Our approach to manual therapy sets the stage for a faster healing response, greater mobility, and helps get you back to the active lifestyle you desire as quickly as possible

This can include joint mobilizations or manipulation to provide a neurological window to move more efficiently and with less pain/restrictions.

Myofascial Decompression with Cups

Taking traditional cupping and add stretching with movement. These applications are very effective for orthopedics, sports medicine, contractures, post-op recovery, overcoming dominance strategies, postural syndromes, hand therapy, neuro re-education, and scar mobilization.

IASTM (Graston)

Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization is a soft tissue technique using tools. You may have heard of Graston which is a popular trademarked name for these instrument-assisted techniques. This method is preferred for accelerating flexibility and mobility.

Mobility Coaching

Customized mobility drills based on individuals’ limitations and how to integrate them into your daily life and or training regimen. We encourage a collaborative approach within your training regimen and are more than happy to be connected to your coach or trainer to help you move better through collaboration.

Injury Reduction

To reduce the risk of injury, we train and build up the resilience of your body (capacity) to be greater than the activity you do with your sport, hobby, or preferred activity (load). When your capacity is greater than the load, injury potential is greatly minimized.

Our Process – What Does a Session Look Like?

BREATHE

We start each session starting with the core – breathing. Breathwork is at the center of everything we should do. It is foundational to our lives as well as our movement.

SENSE

We take a moment to sense and analyze the situation. This is where we work in treatments geared to prepare the body for activity and movement such as soft tissue work, cupping with movement, instrument-assisted treatment, and more.

MOVE

We put that analysis into action. With movement comes mobility training. The final part of the session will be spent activating your muscles and joints, training your body to regain strength, speed healing, and resolve harmful compensations that you’ve developed.
