When pain or injuries knock you out of the game, the staff at Colleyville Physical Therapy is dedicated to getting you back to competition as quickly as possible. From professional athletes to weekend warriors, our staff is experienced in cutting edge treatments to speed rehab time and prevent future injuries. All our therapists are former high-school or college athletes who are still involved in sports at the playing or coaching level.
Chronic postural and/or muscular imbalances are often the underlying cause of back and neck pain. With appropriate and timely intervention, these imbalances can be addressed, avoiding more costly and invasive treatments. The goal of this program is to work closely with referring physicians to provide customized treatment programs for patients with back and/or neck pain of musculoskeletal origin. The components of this program consists of one or more of the following: Patient education, posture correction, an individualized therapeutic exercise program, manual therapy, spinal manipulation, core stabilization, and modalities (ultrasound, electrical stimulation, traction, moist heat, and ice).
The McKenzie method is a philosophy of treatment that consists of repeated passive spine movements and/or sustained positions performed in specific directions that promote the transference of distal painful symptoms to a more proximal position in the spine. This is known as the “centralization” phenomenon. Since spine extension is the movement that centralizes the symptoms in the majority of patients, however, other motions may be used. Unfortunately, many practitioners make the faulty assumption that McKenzie means only extension exercises. At Colleyville Physical Therapy, McKenzie techniques are utilized as part of our overall Back/Neck Program when deemed to be beneficial by the therapist.
Vestibular rehabilitation involves the treatment of dizziness, vertigo, disequilibrium, and/or balance problems. Colleyville Physical Therapy is one of the few clinics in the metroplex with a true vestibular rehab program. Common conditions treated include benign positional vertigo (BPPV), motion sensitivity, impaired balance, vestibular neuritis/labyrinthitis, and cervicogenic dizziness. During your first visit, a thorough assessment of your vestibular, somatosensory, visual, and musculoskeletal systems will be performed to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. An individualized program will then be designed to address deficits in the affected systems. In addition, our therapists are trained in the Epley Maneuver as well as other liberatory maneuvers for all forms of BPPV.
Initiating physical therapy prior to your surgery can be very beneficial. We have found that patients who attend 2 - 3 P.T. visits to “pre-hab” their injuries prior to surgery have fewer complications and usually recover quicker than those who have no pre-op physical therapy. In addition, these patients begin their post-op rehab with the knowledge and confidence that they are in the skilled and caring hands of a physical therapist who is familiar with their condition.
From spine surgery to total hip replacements, our therapists are experienced in providing the highest level of care following your surgery. We are familiar with most orthopedic, podiatric, and spine surgeons in the metroplex. Our therapists interact frequently with these physicians through regular communication as well as participation in clinical and surgical observations.

Our physical therapists incorporate specific research proven core training techniques into the rehabilitation of each patient in order to improve function and decrease your pain.
