Physical therapy is a health care specialty that evaluates, diagnoses, and treats disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Physical therapy is provided by physical therapists, who are licensed health care professionals with a master’s or doctorate level degree from an accredited college.
When someone suffers loss of function or pain due to disease, injury, or mechanical dysfunction, they often will seek care from a physical therapist.
Sports Specific Therapy
To any athlete an injury is frustrating. When the injury is specific to a movement required in the sport you play, frustrations multiply and can easily get overwhelming. Whether your sport is golf, tennis, soccer, basketball, running, skiing, or hiking – giving up your sport is most likely not an option.
At Butte Premier Physical Therapy we cater to a wide range of athletes from amateur to professional. The combination of exercises targeting the athlete’s specific sport and/or mechanics of the sport will make for the best end result.
Chronic pain is pain which persists longer than it should, from months to even years, beyond explanation. It is a serious public health issue; complex and elusive. Chronic pain can result in severe debilitation, frustration and depression.
Treating chronic pain is never a cookbook approach. A multidisciplinary approach integrating multiple medical disciplines is necessary. Our interventions are hands-on, encompass the entire system, focus on manual techniques, neurodynamics, exercises and cardiovascular work, home programs and lifestyle changes.
