Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is physical therapy
Physical therapy is a medical, hands-on approach that aims to ease or relieve pain and restore your normal movement function. Physical therapists on the other hand, are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and are close at work with your physicians.
Paloma physical therapists will perform an evaluation on your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work with you to relieve it.
Our physical therapists will use exercises, and equipment and a variety of gentle hands-on techniques to relieve your pain quickly and restore your function to normal levels.
No matter what your condition is, our goal at Paloma is to restore your mobility and function while also preventing the injury or pain from recurring.
