Physical Therapy

Nick & Michelle M.

Being 26 I was very hesitant to start physical therapy. My ankle had been bugging me, I kept telling myself “I’m young and it will get better by itself”. After 3 months I made the decision to start going to physical therapy and I am glad I did. Health Source Physical Therapy is receptive to the needs and concerns of each of their patients

If you do have pains, I would definitely recommend going! I would send my husband, best friend, and anyone to them. The service and sense of community is amazing. Just by your first visit, it’s easy to see they truly care. Take the time to see if physical therapy is what you need and set up an appointment. The best part, is actually watching yourself grow stronger and improve!

Before starting physical therapy, I was newly diagnosed with possible RA and in significant discomfort in multiple areas. As a senior citizen I did not believe I would be able to accomplish much because I was so uncomfortable, so I started out very skeptical and guarded. I am so amazed, happy and proud of the progress I have made since my first visit.

I received a P.T. treatment from Jason yesterday and I can not say enough about how happy I am with his technique to target my problem area. He also sent me home with some exercises to help my injury heal quicker.

Never had therapy before, so didn't know what to expect. My doctor referrred me to Health Source and I was very pleased. They not only fixed the problem I came in for, but the therapy provided was targeted to prevent the problem from happening again.

Just finished my PT and I am thrilled with the results!! Jason did a wonderful job of identifying the problem, set a plan in motion, and the results were ahead of his projected schedule.

I have been been receiving PT from Jason. I can’t say enough about what a good job he does. He is extremely knowledgeable about his chosen field and is a very caring and compassionate professional.

Always got in right at appointment time, no waiting. The staff was amazing. They all were friendly and very knowledgeable. They took the time to understand what my needs were and treated me accordingly.

Physical Therapy Can Relieve Your Pain Naturally

A healthy, strong, and active lifestyle is what everyone strives for, and Health Source Physical Therapy can help you achieve desirable levels of health and fitness, all while reducing your pain. If you are looking for a healthier, stronger, and more active lifestyle, request an appointment today!

How do I begin?

The pain-free active lifestyle you want is not always easy to obtain, especially for those suffering from chronic pain. The very thought of going out and exercising with your aches and pains may leave you feeling uncomfortable. However, there is, fortunately, a simpler solution to gaining the active lifestyle you desire.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle takes work, but once you get into the groove of it, it becomes much easier. For example, eating nutritious foods is one of the easiest ways to improve your health (although we know those sweets are hard to kick.) Physical activity is the hardest aspect to get in the habit of doing, especially if you are being held back by chronic pain. Some people try to mask their symptoms with anti-inflammatory or pain-relieving medications, while others, unfortunately, give up on the idea of being active altogether.

Luckily, there is an alternative option: physical therapy. With the help of a Portland physical therapist, it is possible to reclaim your pain-free, healthy lifestyle, and get back to doing the activities you love.

What exactly is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is aimed at pain relief and strengthening, and our Portland physical therapist will make sure that your treatment plan won’t bring you any pain or discomfort. PT generally consists of three important phases: pain relief, strengthening, and functional integration. Some people are apprehensive toward physical therapy because they believe it will hurt them; however, the opposite is usually true.

An active lifestyle is very dependent upon movement. Our physical therapist will cater your treatment plan around specific movements designed to increase your strength, flexibility, balance, and overall mobility. He or she will assist you with many of these exercises, but will also provide some simple ones that can be done at home.

The end result of physical therapy is living the life you want, free from painful limitations. That can only happen when you apply the concepts you learn from your treatments to the outside world. Our physical therapist is as dedicated as you are, and will encourage you to achieve all the goals you set forth in the beginning.

How will physical therapy help me?

The purpose of physical therapy remains the same, no matter what you are seeking its services for. Perhaps you are still suffering from the lingering pain of an injury. Perhaps you are recovering from surgery and trying to get your range of motion back. Perhaps your joints simply aren’t what they used to be, and you are looking for relief. Whatever the case may be, physical therapists are dedicated to relieving your pain and getting you back to your peak level of physical health.

A physical therapist is a movement specialist, educated in analyzing mobility issues with walking, running, jumping, bending, stretching, and almost every other form of physical activity. Our physical therapist can pinpoint problem areas and create a customized treatment plan aimed at improving those areas. Through in-office sessions and at-home exercises, patients strengthen their muscles and joints, improve their balance, build endurance, and experience pain relief, all without the unwanted harmful risks of drugs or surgery.

What should I expect?

Everyone has different needs based on the conditions of their bodies. There is no cookie-cutter approach to health and wellness, as one treatment plan may not work the same for one person as it would for another. Your physical therapist will work closely with you to evaluate your mobility, balance, range of motion, and severity of pain. Your physical goals will also be taken into account when creating your treatment plan, as well as any health risks that may be holding you back. At your initial evaluation, you may be asked to perform basic movements, such as sitting down, standing up, walking, lifting, stretching, or other motions. Once your physical therapist has a clear picture of what you need, he or she will begin constructing a treatment plan to help relieve your pain and achieve your goals.

In the end, an active lifestyle is more than possible, even if you struggle with chronic pain. If you are looking to improve your health, strength, and physical activity, look no further – we are here to help.
