Generally speaking, a physical therapists goal is to teach you how to heal in the most effective and timely manner possible, using deep knowledge of bio-mechanics, tissue healing, exercise physiology, motor control and the neuro-musculoskeletal system (nerves, muscles, bones, and joints). The first step toward your healing is to perform a thorough evaluation to assess the cause of your symptoms and form a treatment plan. At In Motion, our approach includes soft tissue and joint mobilization, manual movement re-education techniques, and exercise training. To learn more, please visit our services page. Using these techniques, we are able to decrease or eliminate joint restrictions and movement patterns which lead to pain.
At In Motion, our mission is to provide the highest quality care available. To maximize your care, we do not delegate your care to aides or assistants. You will be seen by only a registered physical therapist during each treatment session at our clinic. At In Motion, our physical therapists have advanced training in orthopedic and sports injury management and care. We specialize in improving your strength, mobility, and overall fitness, whether you are recovering from injury, or seeking optimal performance in your sport.
In California you can be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist without a physician's referral. Some insurance plans require that you obtain a referral from your physician in order for the visit to be covered. We can advise you as to whether this is required by your plan.
