Hydrotherapy

Burley Physical Therapy is one of the only southern Idaho physical therapy providers with an in-house pool. Hydrotherapy, also known as aquatic therapy or water therapy, is a form of physical therapy that relies on the unique properties of water to promote mobility, improve muscle function, reduce swelling, and provide pain relief. What makes aquatic physical therapy exercises truly unique is that they take advantage of the physics of buoyancy, drag, and hydrostatic pressure to provide a wide variety of physical therapy benefits. Hydrotherapy is an excellent alternative physical therapy treatment for patients who are unable to perform traditional exercises, have limited mobility, or patients who struggle with chronic pain

Working closely with a physical therapist can help you become familiar with your new device, and help you build your confidence, too! Burley Physical Therapy works with all different kinds of orthotic and prosthetic devices like braces for the spine, arms, legs, hands, feet, and ankles as well as full arm and leg prosthetics.

Pediatric Physical Therapy

Adults and athletes aren’t the only people who can benefit from physical therapy, children can too! Pediatric physical therapy is exactly what it sounds like, physical therapy for children. Kids might need treatment for many reasons, including: sports injuries, neurological issues, or muscular disorders. Pediatric physical therapy programs usually focus on helping children improve their range of motion, flexibility, movement patterns, and strength. Some common pediatric PT exercises are

  • Balancing on a short balance beam
  • Playing or bouncing on an exercise ball
  • Running, hopping, or playing to improve their coordination.

A pediatric physical therapist can also suggest different activities and exercises you can perform at home with your child!

Pre-Orthopedic and Post-Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Orthopedic rehabilitation is a therapeutic approach to recovery from injuries, chronic conditions, and surgery. Like most other forms of physical therapy, orthopedic rehabilitation focuses on restoring your strength, mobility, flexibility, and overall function after you have surgery, suffer an injury, or are recovering from a chronic physical condition. When it comes to physical rehabilitation, early and intensive treatment yields more and better results than if you postpone treatment. Many different orthopedic conditions and injuries can benefit from rehabilitation, including but not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder, hip, and knee replacements
  • And more
