Note: Locations for services vary, as they are therapist specific. Please be sure to check with the clinic when scheduling.

Lymphedema:

  • Specialty service that evaluates and treats acute and chronic edema using Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT).
  • Since there is no cure for lymphedema, the goal of the therapy is to reduce the swelling and to maintain the reduction.
  • For the majority of patients, this can be achieved by the skillful application of this therapy, which is safe, reliable, and non-invasive.
  • CDT shows good long-term results in both primary and secondary lymphedema; it consists of two phases and the following combined interventions, including Manual Lymph Drainage and Compression Therapy.

Wound Care

  • Specialty service that evaluates and treats acute or chronic wounds.
  • The most commonly treated wounds are caused by:
    • trauma
    • pressure
    • vascular insufficiency
    • surgery
    • neuropathy
    • diabetes.
  • Physical therapists are trained in sharp debridement, wound dressings, and tissue healing which makes them an excellent resource for the treatment of slow or non-healing wounds.
  • Having a PT manage your wound(s) can prevent complications from the wound including infection, hospitalization, and amputation.

Manual Therapy

  • Many of the physical therapists at St. Luke have had advanced training in joint mobilization and spinal manipulative therapy to treat dysfunction requiring this manual therapy technique.
  • Manual Therapy may also include Muscle Energy Techniques (MET) and Strain Counter-strain (SCS) to facilitate improved soft tissue and joint function.

Dry Needling

  • Dry needling is a mechanical-device assisted manual therapy technique that is used in the treatment of soft tissue dysfunction.
  • Needling can be used for muscle, tendon, ligament, periosteal and/or peri-neural tissues to reduce pain and/or increase function.
  • Several of the St. Luke physical therapists are trained in dry needling and have completed competency assessments to practice this safe and effective treatment.

We also offer a Health and Fitness Program to help patients achieve a healthier and more active lifestyle at our facility. All of our patients receive a free month of health and fitness after their last therapy session!
