Santa Clarita Physical Therapy
Personalized Injury & Illness Recovery Programs
Hospitals are primarily focused on “acute care”, which is a short period of intensive treatment for injury and illness. The goal of acute care is to ensure that patients can safely leave the hospital without risk of their health deteriorating even further. While this is valuable, it does not mean that the patient has necessarily fully recovered from their injury or illness. Many patients who have suffered serious health issues continue to endure pains, limited mobility, and possibly difficulty speaking even after their acute care has ended. This is where physical therapy comes in.
Physical therapy sees patients working one-on-one with a physical therapist who creates a customized, long-term treatment plan for them aimed at restoring strength and mobility. Each physical therapy program is built from the ground up based on the unique needs of a patient. Our goal is to get you moving again so that you can enjoy life to the fullest.

Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders
TMJ pain is a crippling disorder prevalent in our society resulting in the inability to do the basic function such as chewing, eating, or brushing their teeth. Symptoms of TMJ disorders are jaw pain, bruxism (teeth grinding), headaches and neck aches, teeth ache, and difficulty talking. Our therapists are trained to treat the individual by using various modalities, joint mobilization, and education of musculo-skeletal injuries.
