Iowa City Physical Therapy offers a wide range of programs and specialized services to help patients restore and maintain their physical strength, performance skills and levels of function. We use an eclectic and evidence-based approach to one-on-one patient care to ensure the best possible outcome.
Whether you are experiencing general musculoskeletal discomfort, have undergone surgery or have a sports or work-related injury, Iowa City Physical Therapy has a program to fit your rehabilitation needs.
Industrial Services: Workers compensation, job-site evaluations and ergonomics.
Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE): A complete evaluation of an individual's overall functional abilities. It measures range of motion, strength, endurance and tolerance for work-related tasks. This evaluation is geared toward determining an individual's ability to fulfill required job duties. Functional capacity evaluations are typically requested by physicians, employers, case managers or lawyers.
Free Injury Consultations (FIC): A free injury consultation is a 20-30 minute session with a licensed physical therapist who will access your injury/pain and recommend treatment options.
Activity Video Analysis: Video analysis is a very beneficial tool for the therapist and the patient/athlete to uncover what motor patterns may be leading to injury. Our therapists will video you in live time performing your sport or activity of choice and review it with you in variable speeds. This allow us to more accurately prescribe exercises to increase strength, flexibility and motor control. The discoveries will allow for improved recovery and decreased injury recurrence while enhancing your overall body awareness during sport/activity.
Community Wellness: Wellness education programs have shown great success in providing injury prevention. This overall improved state of wellness often leads to increased morale and decreased healthcare costs (American Journal of Health Promotion 2011). A variety of companies have found "lunch and learn" sessions to be very beneficial and we enjoy tailoring on-sight education topics to your company's needs. A few ideas include, but aren't limited to office ergonomics, desk stretching activities and preventing low back pain. Feel free to visit our "contact us" page to schedule your topic of choice.
