Orthopedic Physical Therapy

Most orthopedic injuries are caused by repetitive movement patterns that place continued stress on a tissue over a period of time.

 Single-incidence injuries can range from sprains and strains to fractures and dislocations. These acute events can be caused by a variety of factors including sport-related incidents, falls, work-related injuries, and car accidents. 

At Atala, we work to reduce pain and swelling with proven methods such as manual therapy, ice, and compression therapy. Relieving symptoms of pain & inflammation is only one step in our thorough treatment process. We work to restore joint mobility with manual mobilizations, as well as, targeted therapeutic exercises. We restore strength and stability with posture, ergonomics, and therapeutic exercise. We use current modality treatments such as ultrasound, electric stimulation, ice, and heat to assist healing. We also use functional taping and kinesiotape when warranted.

Non-Surgical Injury Rehabilitation

There are many injuries that do not require surgery and can be treated with physical therapy, such as tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, shoulder impingement, lower back pain, hip impingement, hip bursitis, patellofemoral pain syndrome, and cervical radiculopathy.

When you come to Atala for your initial evaluation, you will be given a complete working diagnosis and we will identify the faulty biomechanics surrounding the issue. Your treatment plan created will incorporate strategies and techniques to correct not only biomechanical faults, but also your posture, and ergonomics to address the pain and dysfunction you are having.  

Atala prides itself on whole-body awareness.  

Pre and Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

We treat all orthopedic surgeries — total joint replacement, hip and shoulder labrum repairs, knee ligament reconstructions, shoulder rotator cuff repairs, meniscus repairs, AC joint reconstructions, elbow reconstructions, foot and ankle reconstructions, and much more. We work closely with your surgeon to ensure the best possible outcomes and a full return to function. Treatment often begins before the scheduled operation in order to pre-habilitate the injury. This ensures a maximum range of motion and strength going into surgery. 
We believe in patient education to give you a full understanding of your injury.

Why Choose Us ?

At Atala Physical Therapy we use the “total body approach” paired with manual techniques to meet our patient’s functional goals. Not only do we assess and treat our clients’ current symptoms, but we also treat the underlying causes and compensations. From there, we develop a treatment plan that enables the client to ultimately be independent with their care and get back to doing whatever they love.

We treat each patient as a separate and unique case. Besides addressing the patient’s immediate symptoms and rehabilitating the injury at hand, we analyze their movement patterns to get to the underlying cause of the injury. We then work to correct those movement patterns and ultimately work to decrease the chance of the injury repeating. We also understand that complete recovery looks different for each individual patient, depending on the activities of their daily lives. With this understanding, we incorporate the patient’s lifestyle needs into their rehab, better preparing their joints, tissues and neuromuscular system for their real-life demands. We work to reduce your pain quickly, get you moving faster, and return you to your life sooner. We enjoy our jobs and we want you to enjoy and learn from your rehabilitation experience.

Beyond training athletes, Atala Physical Therapy also has tremendous experience working with individuals who simply want to improve their overall health and quality of life, through a combination of weight loss, balanced eating habits, and realistic exercise routines. We have close relationships with several nutritionists and weight loss experts who work with us in helping you reach your highest peak.
