Before explaining what we offer, we should probably answer an important question: what is physical therapy, anyway?

Put simply, physical therapy is medical treatment that aims to improve or restore mobility. Physical therapists are experts in the components that make bodies move: joints, tendons, muscles, and bones. A physical therapy treatment regimen focuses on identifying why your movement is reduced and treating that specific cause.

PT is often sought for pain management, surgical recovery, and after injuries. It is applicable for athletes, people who enjoy athletics, people with chronic pain, or just about anyone who needs help moving better.

So, what do we offer at our Back in Action clinics in Apex, Holly Springs and Fuquay Varina? We’ve outlined that below, but you can visit individual pages to learn more.

For Everyone

As a comprehensive physical therapy practice, we treat all aspects of movement related to all aspects of the body. Specific areas of treatment and special practices include:

  • Dry Needling: the practice of using needles to release tension in “trigger points,” localized areas of muscles that tend to cause pain and movement issues.
  • TMD/TMJ: jaw-related injuries from dietary issues, anxiety, and/or posture.
  • Vestibular: issues related to the body’s vestibular system, responsible for balance and general motor coordination.
  • Headaches: typically those related to stress or injuries in the shoulders, neck, face, or upper back.
  • SFMA: a technical assessment that systematically uncovers the source of your pain or mobility problems.
  • Pelvic Health: Many patients suffer with their symptoms for years before even hearing the words “pelvic floor,” or realizing that a pelvic floor physical therapist may be able to help. 

For Athletes

Mobility is a critical component of every sport. As most of our PTs are former or current athletes, we share your passion for getting back in the game. Some of our specialties include, but are not limited to:

  • Golf-related treatment: with particular focus on hip torsion, form, and your back muscles.
  • Jump 2 Perform: a highly focused class on the art of jumping in sports, and how you can adapt your form to reduce your risk of injury.
  • Running Analysis: a highly detailed visual and physical analysis of your running form that minimizes your chance for injury and improves your endurance and (likely) your times.

Though these are our specialties, we work with athletes from every sport!
