Here at KAH Premium Physical Therapy, you can be sure to receive one-on-one therapy for the duration of your treatment session. Your Physical Therapist will work with you individually to enhance your recovery with techniques ranging from soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, joint mobilizations, and other manual therapy techniques. In addition, therapists will use a variety of range of motion, stretching, corrective exercise programs, balance training, postural re-education, functional training, and pain-relieving modalities as needed.
Our Physical Therapists utilize the most up-to-date evidence in conjunction with their knowledge and expertise in every treatment they provide–a practice known as Evidence-Based Practice– to ensure that you are receiving the maximum benefit from your therapy. Never will you be left to “fend for yourself” completing exercises on your own with only a glimpse of supervision as we are believers in providing the one-on-one attention that you deserve.
