Hi my name Kristen Klingen, physical therapist here at In Motion Physical Therapy. I help to take care of the smallest clients we have, those ranging anywhere from 3 weeks old to a couple years of age. Our pediatric physical therapy treats children with a variety of different issues. One of the things we might see them for is called torticollis or plagiocephaly. Torticollis is when there is a shortening of the muscle in the neck called the sternocleidomastoid that results in the child having and tendency to tilt there head to one side and difficulty turning the head to the other side. We work with the children and the parents and teach them how to turn and stretch their head and neck with therapeutic play activities both in the clinic and at home. We also work on developmental skills and how the progress the children through rolling, sitting, and eventually crawling and walking as needed. We have several therapists that treat children and if you have any questions or would like to schedule an evaluation please feel free to call. Thank you.
Hi, my name is Kristen Klingen and I am a physical therapist here at in motion physical therapy and rehabilitation. Today I would like to discuss spine pain. It is reported that 90% of the population will experience back pain at some point in their life. At In Motion we have an experienced staff that specializes in caring for patients with spine pain. Spine pain may be caused by a herniated disc, arthritis, work- related injury, a sports injury, a motor vehicle accident or post operative from a surgical procedure such as a spinal fusion. Our therapists who specialize in the McKenzie method to diagnose and treat mechanical pain of the spine asses your specific symptoms and design a treatment program to relieve your pain. Treatment may also include mechanical traction and specific exercises to strengthen the core muscles that stabilize the spine and prevent further pain. Through a thorough evaluation and the most up to date treatment physical therapy can help restore you to your previous level of function. Thank you for watching and if you have any questions or would like to schedule an evaluation please feel free to call.
