At Woodland Wellness Center, we diagnose and treat individuals of all ages.

We offer a variety of treatment options that are designed specifically for your needs. Our Physical Therapists: Johnna Underwood, PT and Debby Thomas, MPT are here to identify, treat, and participate in your recovery whether it is a specific medical disorder, post or pre-surgical routines, alleviating and treating orthopedic injuries, and/or

improving neurological and musculoskeletal disfunctions. They work with you on postural and body mechanic education, using manual therapy and therapeutic exercises, and use tools such as cold laser therapy, electrical stimulation, dry needling iontophoresis, kinesiotaping, as well as frequency-specific microcurrents to get you
feeling your best.

Here are a few specific types of therapy that our health care professionals focus on:
Orthopedic Physical Therapy

Physical therapists in this group focus on alleviating injuries or illnesses that affect bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and/or tendons. This can come from a multitude of reasons such as bursitis, fractures, ligament and muscle strains, post-operative conditions, and/or tendonitis.

Range of motion, proper healing and strength are major priorities under these conditions. Walkers, canes, prosthetics and other exercise tools are commonly introduced during this treatment.

Neurological Physical Therapy

Physical therapists personalize small therapeutic exercises to improve neurological disorders on muscles. Mastering movement becomes especially significant for those who have experienced diseases of the brain, spine and/or nerves (ex. Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, cerebral palsy, stroke).

Relationships with these physical therapist can be long term, depending on the disorder, considering many don’t have an outright cure. However, they can be maintained.

Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Physical Therapy

In addition to providing education on cardiopulmonary diseases—and ways to prevent additional damage to the heart, lungs and vascular system—these therapists prescribe physical activities to help people return to their normal lifestyles after a cardiac event.

Geriatric Physical Therapy

As a person gets older, aging results in a loss of skeletal muscles. Lean body mass also decreases, along with muscles becoming less toned and more rigid—including with exercise.

In addition to training in aging conditions (arthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimers, dementia, etc.), geriatric physical therapists focus on ways for people over the age of 65 to prevent or treat common aging issues.

This includes incontinence, muscle fatigue, cognitive impairment and delirium. This profession also examines whether instances like these are related to age or medication, or a simple accident.

Pediatric Physical Therapy

Designed for infants to age 18, pediatric physical therapists focus on preexisting conditions, and problems due to illnesses or diseases, in addition to injuries during childhood years. Common examples include cerebral palsy, spina bifida, effects of in utero drug or alcohol exposure, and other limb or muscle
