At Holistic Manual Physical Therapy, our goal is to return you to your highest possible level of function and activity - as quickly and as safely as possible. We have found that obtaining a good patient history and physical examination allows us to treat the majority of our patients without the need for further radiological or electrodiagnostic testing. We have also found that patients have a more successful outcome and lower recurrence rate when they are educated about their disorder during their treatment.
With an initial visit to Holistic Manual Physical Therapy, we will evaluate you and create a patient treatment plan, and refer you to our network of doctors if further diagnosis is required. We specialize in evaluating and treating patients with neck pain, back pain, joint or muscle pain as well as headaches, sport and work injuries. A particular area of expertise is diagnosing and treating of injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents – whiplash, slipped discs, shoulder and neck trauma.
Our physical therapists have developed a unique approach which incorporates various manual procedures, among others Myofacial release, Cranial Osteopathy, and Spinal Mobilization (with and without an impulse). Our therapists have been trained extensively in TMJ (Temporo Mandibular Joint Disorders) at UMD&J dental school, along with various specialists in the subject.
Nachum received his training and degree from the world renowned Physical Therapy School of Health Science at Ben Gurion University in Israel. He then received advanced training in Manipulative Therapy from G. D. Maitland, founder of the Australian Method. He is now a fellow in the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists and continues his education in the latest techniques, approaches and information to maintain this fellowship. Our therapist’s membership in organizations such as this is just one more assurance that our entire staff provides the most innovative and advanced treatments available.
