Adolescent
Rehabilitation

At KHPT we pride ourselves on being leading health care providers for the adolescent population. Throughout these early years, growing bodies have varying internal and external factors that can heavily affect the rehab process. From growth plates to population specific pathologies (i.e. Sever’s Disease, Osgood Schlatter, etc), our rehab team is well equipped to properly diagnose and effectively treat adolescents. Our team has consistently worked with local high schools, soccer, volleyball, and baseball academies to become the go-to providers for this population. Apart from having Doctorate level education backgrounds, our team at KHPT is well-versed on many of the sport specific demands these young athletes need in order to return to sport and prior level of activity.

Hand and Upper quadrant Therapy Services

The intricate anatomy of the arm and hand frequently requires very delicate surgery, often with microscopic techniques. The technical complexity of these kinds of surgeries necessitates a higher level of competence by therapists with advanced skills in the upper quarter rehabilitation during postoperative recovery.

Mckenzie Approach

This is an exercise based approach for mechanical assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions including sciatica, low back pain, cervical pain, as well as radiating symptoms of numbness, tingling or pain into the arms and legs. This approach was developed by Robin Mckenzie to determine pain that is a result of mechanical involvement and targets movement patterns of the body to help restore normal unrestricted movements. Patients are taught how to observe their own movement patterns and ultimately be able to recognize the pain that is mechanical in origin and treat themselves.
