Possible Treatment Options

Aquatic Therapy

Warm water therapy reduces a patient's rehabilitation by allowing an increase in range of motion with less pain, and an increased blood flow to injured tissue, reducing swelling.  Aquatic techniques include walking or running against hydrotherapy jets or on an underwater treadmill, strengthening and endurance training, plyometric and sports specific exercises.  Read more ...

Manual Therapy

Joint mobilization, massage or trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and muscle energy techniques are able to relieve pain and restore joint function and normal range of motion.  Read more ...

Land-Based Therapy

Specific range of motion, strengthening, flexibility and joint stability exercises improve muscle imbalances, and spinal or joint alignment which improves sports performance and prevents re-injury.  Read more ...

Dave's recovers from an Achilles tear with Aquatic and Land-Based Therapies

When Dave suffered a tear to his Achilles tendon we brought him into our Endless Pool where the weightlessness of the warm water accelerated his rehabilitation program.

This type of aquatic therapy allowed him to strengthen the muscles and tendons around the foot / ankle.  It wasn't long before Dave transitioned to a land-based therapy program. 

Utilizing the strength, joint stabilization and endurance training of the Gravity Training System (GTS) Dave was able to return to his favorite past time on the basketball court.

How we've helped others relieve their pain

Manual Therapy Case Study - Shoulder - Moon Physical Therapy"Julie has done it again!  First, she fixed my knees last year.  Now she fixed the tingling and pains in my upper left arm. About seven months ago, I started getting tingling and pains in my left upper arm. Instead of it going away in time, the symptoms gradually got worse. 

Julie came to my rescue with treatments to loosen and stretch the muscles in my shoulder and upper back, which caused the pressure on the nerves. I learned from her the importance of good posture and how to fix poor sleep habits. She came up with the right exercises for me to continue after therapy was over. 

Now I don’t have the problems anymore!"

"Amazing staff!!  

I had an auto accident in Sept. of 1992 and a second in April of 1995.  I had bad back pain in my lower back ever since.  Sleeping and turning while sleeping caused more pain. 

Then, praise God for Moon Physical Therapy!  I can turn in my sleep without pain! Yay!  I have less sleepless nights.  My pain levels have dropped.  Range of motion is much better than it’s been in years!  Thanks a bunch Julie and staff.  God Bless all of you now and always.

P.S. – the turning pain was gone from my first visit.  Has been gone ever since! "

"On August 1, 2009, I had a right hip replacement at Queen’s Hospital.  After time, my hip and thigh would hurt and I was barely able to walk.  Dr. Mark Lum recommended that I go to Moon for physical therapy...

Julie Moon, owner and physical therapist, and her staff worked on me and together with many exercises, I found some relief after six weeks. I went back for another six weeks and now I am able to walk with no pain.

The work that Julie and her staff did for me is immeasurable.  If you have physical pains, I recommend going to Moon Physical Therapy for treatment without any reservation."
