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 the 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, and/or 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.

Pelvic Rehabilitation

Physical therapy can help treat pelvic floor muscles and surrounding tissues to help them perform optimally and decrease symptoms related to pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic floor dysfunction can contribute to back, hip and leg disability and pain. Pelvic rehabilitation can treat pelvic pain, incontinence, constipation, sexual dysfunction, low back pain during pregnancy, postpartum pain, bladder and rectal prolapse, bedwetting, and pre/post pelvic surgical intervention rehabilitation.

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 techniques. 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!
