Pinnacle Rehabilitation and Personal Training, providing physical therapy in West Branch and Rose City, Michigan, offers a wide variety of services to patients. Some of these include:
Our licensed and experienced physical therapists and assistants will help you overcome pain and injuries that impact your ability to function to your normal level of activity and keep you from enjoying your full quality of life. Our goal is to get your back to your life as quickly as possible.
In the same vein, we will stress education and prescribe exercises as a means of preventing your injuries from recurring.
Following a thorough examination and assessment, you will receive a customized program of therapy that normally includes both therapy and exercise to facilitate your recovery.
We use a hands-on technique known a manual therapy to mobilize and manipulate your body in an effort to decrease pain and increase your range of motion.
Manual therapy is very effective in adding flexibility to stiff joints and muscles.
These treatments, when coupled with our education component and prescribed exercises, will allow you to regain your strength faster by being able to work on your rehabilitation at home between visits.
Our West Branch clinic features a 10,000 gallon indoor pool for training and aquatic therapy as well as a hot tub kept at 89 degrees Fahrenheit.
Aquatic therapy is especially beneficial to patients who have injured limbs. You can move in the water in a way that you cannot on land because of the weightlessness you feel in the water with its buoyancy.
Spending time in the water also helps relieve swelling in limbs because of the pressure exerted on your body from the water.
Aquatic therapy allows our physical therapists to speed up your healing process because it is much less painful than doing exercises on the land. The pressure of the water also increases circulation, especially to the hands and feet, pushing the healing blood to the injured areas.
Water is six times denser than air, so it provides a safe and even resistance on the body, helping with strengthening and posture control.
Our trained and qualified personal trainers help with orientation, exercise instruction and prescription, and acquaint you with essential techniques to becoming your best physical self.
Through their knowledge and advice, you build knowledge about exercise and confidence in the right workout for you.
We help you set goals, build accountability into your program, and give valuable feedback to help you build your strength and flexibility.
