Bodyscape's Physical Therapists are Movement Specialists:

Each patient’s overall movement and specific abilities (such as strength and flexibility) are analyzed to determine what needs to be addressed. 
For example, if an individual is having difficulty rising from a low chair, the physical therapist helps to resolve this problem by:

  • Watching how the patient gets up from a low chair
  • Comparing the patient’s movement to the “ideal” movement pattern to rise with ease from a low chair
  • Depending upon what the physical therapist sees, he/she then tests various aspects of the patient’s abilities, such as flexibility, strength and balance
  • Then treatment focuses on the strength, flexibility, balance, and/or movement pattern difficulties that the physical therapist finds in the evaluation
  • This process allows the patient by the end of treatment to rise from a low chair with ease
