Caring for patients avoiding or healing from surgery
At Restore, we help patients with musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions to stay active and pain-free. Our treatments include manual therapy and therapeutic exercise. We restore proper alignment of the body to abolish pain and improve function. Our Physical Therapists teach patients proper muscle balance and the flexibility needed for healthy movement patterns.
We work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility, improve balance, and to develop programs for healthier and more active lifestyles. In order to enhance your care and to provide a more holistic approach, we are happy to consult with your other practitioners.

orthopedics for patients with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a disorder that can be characterized by joint hypermobility (joints that move beyond their normal range of motion) as well as loose or painful joints that can easily dislocate. For some, Ehlers-Danlos can lead to the early onset of osteoarthritis.
There are several different types of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. For many people with this condition, especially those with the Hypermobility Type, physical therapy can help to strengthen and tone muscles to support hypermobile joints.
Often, people with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome struggle with treatments that emphasize flexibility over strengthening. Patients with EDS require the expertise of a physical therapist who understands the unique challenges of this condition and who can develop a plan of care to strengthen and the quality of life of hypermobile patients.
pelvic floor physical therapy
True healing in a soothing environment
Pelvic pain in both men and women may be caused by numerous factors including joint dysfunction, muscle imbalance and weakness, nerve pressure, tender points, and post-surgical scarring.
At Restore, our therapists have experience in both orthopedics and pelvic floor physical therapy. They provide pelvic floor patients with a comprehensive evaluation that screens for pelvic floor dysfunctions as well as orthopedic issues that can cause or contribute to pelvic pain.
Patients always have the undivided attention of their therapist for the full hour of their initial evaluation. During the evaluation and in each 40-minute session that follows, patients receive treatment, expert advice, and a customized plan of care in a serene, private environment.
We realize that the trust and comfort of the patient are essential to providing the highest quality care. That's why our office is small and relaxing, far from the chaos and fluorescent lighting of hospitals and busy doctors' offices.
At Restore, we treat all pelvic floor conditions, including:
Coccydynia (pain in the tailbone)
Hip / Groin Pain
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Low Back Pain

Keeping mothers healthy
Physical and hormonal changes effect women both during and after pregnancy. These fluctuations can cause excessive joint mobility, weakness in the core, and altered mobility and function of the spine.
Our dual pelvic floor and orthopedic evaluations screen for the many challenges confronting pregnant and postpartum women, as well as women trying to become pregnant. Hands-on treatments then address spinal and pelvic joint issues, and targeted exercises empower patients to overcome muscle weakness and imbalance.
Before, during, and after pregnancy, we determine why you're experiencing any pain, discomfort, weakness, or imbalance, and develop a plan of care that is unique to you, with treatments including manual therapy, soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, trigger-point release, visceral, and joint manipulation, as well as dietary revisions, self care strategies, targeted exercises and postural retraining.
