If you’ve been thinking about doing a Google search for “physical therapist near me” in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, you already know you need one. But which one? Obviously, you want a physical therapist who treats YOU, not just the concern, complication or condition you have. You want one who is as concerned about your health and wellness as you are. Welcome to Total Health Systems. Our physical therapists do exactly that, every day with every client.
At Total Health Systems, we are a multi-specialty physical therapy clinic that focuses on helping you improve your ability to move and function normally. If you suffer from a disability or condition that makes it impossible for you to do so, we can still help you achieve the maximum amount of movement and functionality possible.
Physical Therapy Benefits
Entering into a structured program of physical therapy can provide you with many benefits, including the following:
- If you recently sustained an injury, your physical therapist in St. Clair Shores Michigan will first determine exactly what caused your injury and isolate its location. Then he or she will design a comprehensive physical therapy program specifically for you that will help you recover by building your muscles back up.
- If you have persistent joint pain, whether from an illness, injury, or recent surgery, your physical therapist will help you get rid of it through both manual therapy and therapeutic exercises.
- If you need to increase your mobility due to age, weight, sedentary lifestyle, illness, or injury, your physical therapist can not only help you develop your core, but also improve your ability to walk and otherwise move.
One of the modalities we employ at Total Health Systems is that of passive care. In this type of physical therapy, your therapist may perform one or more of the following on you:
- Craniosacral therapy
- Cryotherapy (ice packs)
- Electric muscle stimulation
- Hot moist therapy
- Manual therapy
- Myofascial release
- Trigger point therapy
Total Health Systems also specializes in active care, including the following:
- Balance training
- Ergonomic corrections
- Flexibility training
- Neuromuscular re-education
- Rehabilitative services
- Strength training
Remember, the difference between passive and active care is that your physical therapist performs passive care on you while you perform the latter yourself, under the guidance and with the help of your therapist. He or she trains you on how to do the various physical exercises so you can safely and effectively perform them.
Supplemental Chiropractic Care
If you are already going to a chiropractor, your Total Health Systems physical therapist can make your chiropractic treatments more effective by means of additional hands-on treatment and exercises. Our supplemental care allows you to achieve a faster and more comprehensive recovery than you likely otherwise would.
At Total Health Systems, we pride ourselves on being “a multi-disciplinary practice that provides both traditional medical and holistic therapies with a two-pronged ‘corrective’ and ‘wellness’ approach.” That is why we provide you with advice and counsel about nutrition and supplements such as vitamins. Our goal is to improve not only your physical condition but also the biochemical aspects of your health. In other words, you can rest assured that your physical therapist will treat you as a whole person, not just an illness, injury, or condition.
To this end, we provide both “sickness model” and “wellness model” products and services. For the former, we address your existing illness, injury or condition. For the latter, we address your desire, as a healthy person, to maintain your health and wellness, slow your aging, and proactively strive to reduce your risk of illness.
