Physical Therapy

Patient can now receive DIRECT ACCESS to physical therapy services without a referral from a physician. The Michigan Legislator has passed a new law allowing patients to seek physical therapy treatment without a physician referral (Senate Bill 0690 - effective January 1, 2015).

Studies have shown that physical therapists are accurate in diagnosing many orthopedic conditions.

Physical therapy is proven effective in the management of:

  • pain
  • tissue dysfunction
  • joint pathology
  • movement disorders
  • balance deficits
  • and more

Plymouth Physical Therapy Specialist is committed to the highest level of patient care, including the most up-to-date treatment approaches, state of the art equipment, and same day appointments.

Plymouth Physical Therapy Specialists Spine Care

Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT)

  • PPTS follows evidence-based practice which has lead us to this approach
  • Based on mechanical and symptomatic responses to loading the spine

Benefits

  1. Patient centered: Emphasis on patient independence while minimizing dependence on the clinician
  2. Less intervention necessary (peer reviewed)
  3. Effective: Hundreds of studies support the use of this approach
  4. Sustainable: Patient can learn how to prevent and/or reduce the severity of future episodes

How Does It Work?

  1. The therapist performs an evaluation and determines if the patient can be classified into 1 of 3 syndromes
  2. Directional Preference: Utilizing repeated movements the therapist can determine if a favorable and/or unfavorable direction can be used in treatment
  3. Progression of forces: Once a favorable direction is determined, the therapists can facilitate an appropriate prescription of repetition and force needed to correct the problem
  4. Patient Independence: The ultimate goal is for the patient to become motivated to manage the health of their spine onward, minimizing the need for future treatment. (Study suggests reduction of recurrence up to 75% at five years follow up with continued patient maintenance)

Sports Performance

Many of our clinicians have played or coached a variety of sports. ALL of our clinicians have in depth knowledge of body mechanics and understand the demand of various sports on the body. Utilizing our HIGH SPEED CAMERA we can slow movements down to 60 frames per second to examine improper forces placed on the body during various activities. Some of the activities include: running/walking, throwing, jumping/landing, golf swing, baseball swing, and more. Once recorded, we can use our digital analysis system to measure and record detailed information about the activity.

What is YOUR Golf Fitness Level?

Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) is the world's leading educational organization and research facility dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. They have studied the top 100 PGA tour players and thousands of regular golfers and professionals. The analysis of this study determined how physical limitations in a person's body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury.
