The Road to Physical Recovery Begins at Nova Health
Nova Health offers physical therapy centers in Eugene and Roseburg. After an injury or accident, you want to recover fully and quickly. Let our team of physical therapists guide you through a recovery treatment plan that will be customized based on your unique needs and physical fitness level.
Your therapist can provide restorative treatment for your neck, back, or pelvic pain, or attend to joint injuries involving your shoulder, elbow, or hand. Your practitioner will use a holistic approach to your recovery, including manual therapy, modalities, therapeutic exercises, and custom home exercise programs and will provide valuable information about posture and movement to enable your long-term wellness.
For patients with recent surgery, we work closely with your surgeon to build an early post-surgical treatment plan to return you quickly to optimal wellness. We also collaborate with other referring providers such as licensed physicians, podiatric physicians, naturopathic physicians, chiropractors, dentists, physician’s assistants, and nurse practitioners as part of our commitment to ensuring you receive comprehensive care.
What Happens in Physical Therapy?
If an injury or chronic condition has impacted your ability to move or perform daily activities, physical therapy can help. Simple exercises and techniques can assist with:
- Pain relief.
- Building strength and endurance.
- Returning function or movement.
- Restoring balance.
We use various methods to perform physical therapy near Eugene and Roseburg, Oregon, such as building strength through exercises and massage therapy. Physical therapy moves you around and helps you raise tolerance for things you struggled to do when you walked in the door. It requires effort from the patient, but it can deliver high rewards.
What Type of Injuries Require Physical Therapy?
Many injuries may require physical therapy and rehabilitation. In orthopedic physical therapy, we often see athletes who have suffered sports injuries. These patients include runners logging too many miles without taking time off for injury or team sports participants with sprained ankles, tennis elbow, tendonitis, and groin pulls.
People who suffer from frequent headaches or neck pain also seek physical therapy. Tension headaches, which begin in the neck, are a prevalent cause of physical discomfort that may require treatment. We also see patients who have back pain from pulled muscles, strains related to improper lifting techniques, and various other causes.
We provide hand therapy, which can help you recover from chronic issues or an acute injury and regain hand function. Our pelvic therapy targets the connective tissue, muscles, and ligaments that support the pelvic organs, which may weaken after pregnancy.
What Are Some of the Treatments?
We provide many treatments to our patients to improve their current condition. A few options include:
- Exercises or stretches led by your provider.
- Ultrasounds to decrease muscle pain or spasms.
- Hot or cold therapy.
- Rehabilitation to improve adaption to using an artificial limb.
Most of our therapies focus on muscle manipulation and joint mobilization. We also use stretching, the exercises you would do to warm up before strenuous activities.
