Targeted Treatment Plans for Various Conditions
No two patients are alike, but we do see some common ailments at ProMet PT. Here are just some of the conditions we treat:
Sports-Related Injuries or Fatigue: ProMet PT is your biggest fan and collaborator to enhance or restore your athletic performance. We work with athletes and teams across the tristate region, providing rehabilitation support for sprains, strains, and ligament tears. Our specialized approach may combine sports therapy and comprehensive physical therapy to facilitate a triumphant return to your sport or activity level.
Neurological Disorders: Are you dealing with a neurological ailment? Is one of your loved ones showing decline neurologically and you want to empower them to regain their independence? Our physical therapists work to help our patients regain mobility and work through challenges to live their best lives. Many of our patients come to work with our therapists after a stroke, spinal cord injury, or multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis.
Pre-habilitation Needs: Did your doctor recommend proactively undergoing physical therapy to prepare for upcoming surgeries or medical procedures? Professional physical therapy can take a preemptive approach to your care. Known as pre-habilitation, this type of therapy aims to optimize physical health and strength before the procedure for a potentially smoother recovery post-surgery.
Orthopedic Challenges: When you’re dealing with conditions like osteoarthritis, tendonitis, or scoliosis, it can be difficult to stay mobile and can also cause chronic pain or ongoing discomfort. The physical therapists at ProMet PT focus on comprehensive recovery strategies that work to alleviate pain while addressing the root cause of the condition for long-term relief.
Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation: Whether you’ve undergone heart surgery or are managing pulmonary ailments, our physical therapy services can aid in restoring endurance and enhancing your overall quality of life.
Pediatric Care: We extend our expertise to young patients coping with conditions like cerebral palsy, genetic disorders, and injuries, ensuring they receive the early intervention and specialized care necessary for their well-being.
Geriatric Support: Older adults deserve to live pain-free and with independence and dignity. Professional physical therapy can tailor specific exercise regimens to reduce the risk of falls and fractures while promoting ongoing mobility and autonomy.
Chronic Pain Management: Chronic pain can quickly turn overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to define your life. ProMet PT offers holistic solutions to manage conditions such as fibromyalgia and back pain to alleviate discomfort and enhance your overall quality of life.
Types of Professional Therapy
There are several types of professional physical therapy your therapist may recommend, including:
Therapeutic cupping takes its roots in ancient cultures, including Egypt, Asia, and Europe, and serves as an alternative medicine technique. Your physical therapist will strategically place cups on the skin to create a suction force using negative air pressure to help foster pain relief, inflammation reduction, relaxation, increased blood flow, toxin drainage, and stimulation of the peripheral nervous system, among other purposes.
NormaTec Recovery System
The NormaTec Recovery System caters to the rapid recovery needs of elite athletes, those with physically demanding lifestyles, patients with circulatory disorders, frequent travelers with swollen legs, and individuals with professions requiring prolonged standing. The NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern uses compression devices on the legs, arms, and hips to mobilize fluid and improve recovery time.
Balance and Gait Training
Maintaining optimal balance and stability is crucial to preventing falls and related injuries, especially for our senior patients. ProMet Physical Therapy offers comprehensive balance and gait training with gait pattern evaluation, personalized treatment programs, and dedicated support to rebuild confidence in performing daily tasks.
Our professional physical therapy includes working with professional boxers across Queens and Long Island. We help you recover your peak physical condition and endurance. More than 90% of boxers often experience acute injuries, body fatigue, and decreased performance due to overtraining. We offer personalized programs that might include soft tissue techniques, myofascial release, and functional mobility training.
Postural Restoration (PRI®)
Postural Restoration (PRI®) focuses on the body’s posture and muscle imbalances, stressing how important it is for the body to be properly aligned and balanced for muscles and joints to work well. ProMet Physical Therapy incorporates PRI® concepts into its treatment framework to deliver optimal results in rehabilitation and performance training.
IASTM Technique uses an instrument-assisted, soft tissue mobilization approach to help stimulate the body’s healing response to the affected area. This kind of professional physical therapy helps people with strains, sprains, arthritic joints, and myofascial dysfunction get better range of motion, soft tissue mobility, and less pain. This makes sure that the recovery process is complete.
Professional physical therapy can dramatically improve your life after surgery, an injury, overtraining, or other medical issues. The ProMet Physical Therapy team offers a unique style with a common focus on YOU. In order to aid you in healing your body and mind as a whole rather than just the area affected by an injury, our treatment plans take into account every aspect of your condition, life, and goals.
