At Focus Physical Therapy, we’ve created a 5 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step 1:

Laying Groundwork 

Most physical therapy clinics are not attentive, they’re fast paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.

This is why our first step is to listen to you story.

After working with countless people with heel pain, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain. That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.

Step 2:

We Find Out WHY Your Heel Pain or Plantar Fasciitis Started

The next step comes in the form of a Discovery Visit.

We understand the unease we all inevitably feel when committing to something new or unfamiliar. We want our clients to be comfortable with their decision to receive Focus care! During these Discovery Visits, we sit down with you, one-on-one, listen to your story, examine you, answer any questions you have, and we let you know what's going on and what can be done to alleviate it. 

If you are still skeptical and unsure if physical therapy is right for you…that’s fine. That is why we created the Discovery Session.

Step 3:

Customized Program To Help You Ease Pain and Restore Your Mobility

People are usually told to stretch or given a sheet of exercises from doctors for their heel pain or plantar fasciitis. But the problem is, moving or stretching irritated muscles can only increase the pain! Without proper guidance, doing the WRONG stretches or exercises can make the situation worse. It is critical that BEFORE you start to stretch or exercise it is important to alleviate pain with movement.

What Is Manual Therapy?

Manual therapy is the method of using highly targeted treatments that will help you RAPIDLY restore mobility, and ease pain with movement BEFORE you do any exercise.

We use different tools that will help you feel better such as:

-Breaking up scar tissue from previous surgeries or injuries

-Unlocking stiff, achy, and irritated joints

-Releasing tight 'knots' or 'muscle spasms' that create discomfort

 

Manual Therapy helps to remove “tightness” from areas that are frequently irritated and increase blood circulation into these problem areas…this will speed up pain relief and create a more optimal environment for your body to heal.

Step 4:

Retrain Your Brain-Body Connection

 

Most people think that once their pain is gone, the body is healed.

This is simply not true!

Most people don't realize that chronic pain causes your body to develop bad compensation habits.

Examples of these "compensations" might be:

*Using your hands to push on your thighs to stand up after you've bent forward to pick something up from the ground

*Putting more weight to one side of the body because of increased pain when standing for too long

*Using momentum to stand upright from a bed, or out of a chair, because of achiness or pain.

*Leaning forward too much because it relieves plantar fasciitis and heel pain

 

Why Does This Happen?

Because the brain interprets certain movements as harmful when you have pain!

Most heel pain exercises you see on YouTube, or learn from traditional physical therapy, only focuses on building strength or increasing mobility, they do nothing to restore the very critical brain-body connections.

 

At Focus Physical Therapy, our exercise program offers much more than a “sheet of strength exercises”, or some ‘mobility stretches…

 

We do this by giving you complete 1 to 1 focused attention into every single movement that applies to your goals.

 

This will allow you to:

*Restore your confidence in performing ALL movements that you were fearful of doing throughout the day

*Return to exercising with PROPER guidance so you don't have to worry about hurting yourself again

*Develop 'Brain-Body Awareness' so you are able to self-correct any improper movement during exercise

*Get back all the things that you enjoy (walking, playing with your grandchildren, or walking the dog)

Step 5:

Optimize Your Quality Of Life

Our best clients are people who are motivated and committed to becoming active again, even if they sometimes feel stuck in their current situation.

If you are willing to put in some effort and open to learning about your body, and you are ready to get back to the quality of life you deserve, then Focus PT would be a great fit for you.

You can expect:

*A life where you can sit and drive without heel pain, or having to pull over every 20 minutes to stretch

*A life where you can bend forward to pick things off the floor, without having to sit down from pain

*Get back to exercising without having to worry about hurting yourself again

*Be able to play with your kids or grand kids, without having to slow down or take pain pills

*Be able to get a restful sleep and wake up with less pain and more energy

*Return to your pre-injury active lifestyle, without having to rely on pills, injections, creams, or surgery
