What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy involves a skilled professional using his hands and other implements to release tension and stiffness in your muscles and joints. Patients who participate in physical therapy can expect to see a marked decrease in pain and swelling, as well as improved flexibility, range of motion, strength, balance, coordination, posture, and endurance.
If you suffer from chronic or acute back or joint pain, Chris may use a technique known as manual therapy. In this lesser known chiropractic modality, a practitioner uses only their hands to apply pressure on muscle tissue and to passively manipulate joints in order to improve range of motion and flexibility, release tension in muscles and stiff joints, and relieve pain and inflammation.
What We Believe
The physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of patients are of the highest importance. We strive to ensure each patient lives a happier, healthier, and active life. It is not surprising that our practice has been meeting the needs of patients in the northern Illinois to southern Wisconsin Stateline areas for many years.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life of those who trust us to provide the physical therapy and rehabilitative services that help them recover from pain and injury. They know that choosing the right physical therapy practice depends heavily on the knowledge, experience, commitment, and compassion of the physical therapist.
That is why they choose Chris Scott, the Clinical Exercise Physiologist and Licensed Medical Massage Therapist at the helm of this physical therapy practice. Scott has over 20 years of knowledge and experience in physical therapy and sports medicine, with a concentration in medical massage therapy, rehabilitative treatments, and correcting sport injuries.
