Beginning in 2000, we have proudly been the center of excellence for Orthopedic Manual Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation to Patchogue and our surrounding communities.
At Motion Dynamics Physical Therapy, we emphasize the correction of biomechanical dysfunction through individualized, hands-on program of rehabilitation. We not only address the symptoms, but also analyze the entire musculoskeletal system for surrounding areas that may be adding to the problem. Rather than just focusing on pain, we get to the root of the problem causing pain in the first place.
Our treatment approach integrates traditional Physical Therapy modalities with more skilled, advanced manual therapy techniques that are based upon the theories of Osteopathic Medicine. These include soft tissue and joint mobilizations, both tools used in Manual Medicine. Early emphasis is placed on education and patient participation in an active home exercise program. We institute a thorough course of intervention that includes education about body mechanics and core stabilization in order to minimize the change of progressive dysfunction or re-injury.
The ultimate goal for all patients is the decrease or elimination of symptoms, restoration of function and realization of physical potential. In this way, patients may safely return to work, sport and activities of daily living.
