Welcome to
Suarez Physical Therapy

Welcome to Suarez Physical Therapy, where our “care.experience” is offered to all our patients. We are a certified care.experience center and operate with compassion in a family like atmosphere. We appreciate all our patients for choosing us and having confidence in our services. We are committed to working with you, addressing all your physical issues and concerns, and doing everything possible to help you reach your physical therapy goals.

At Suarez Physical Therapy, we do not adopt a one-size-fits-all treatment approach. Instead, we have personalized physical therapy programs for all our patients. We treat all patients like family, making them feel comfortable and giving them our full attention.

To ensure that our clients get the most out of physical therapy, we encourage patients to honor all appointments and meet their prescribed treatment frequency. Following through with your treatment plan of care  will help you achieve the best progress since every physical therapy session builds off the previous session. After the initial evaluation, our clinical experts will recommend a personalized home exercise program (HEP). They will also advise you on what to do in between your physical therapy treatment sessions. Our HEP programs are easy to follow and will help you achieve significant progress even while at home.

Physical therapy and a positive attitude go hand-in-hand. We encourage our patients to stay positive and expect positive results from the treatment programs. We will be there to cheer you on, celebrating all the small victories along the way. During the treatment program, you will get encouragement from the emerging signs of improvement.

What We Do

We provide a wide range of treatment options to restore your full body functionality:

Acoustic Shockwave
Therapy

Acoustic shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment procedure that entails creating and applying a series of low energy acoustic waves on the injury. This modality has gained immense popularity in physical therapy treatment. Acoustic shockwave therapy effectively treats numerous musculoskeletal conditions, mainly those that involve connective tissues like tendons and ligaments. Many physical therapists use shockwave therapy as a tool for treating chronic or stubborn tendinopathy. Some tendon conditions don't respond to conventional forms of treatment, and this is where shockwave therapy comes in.

At Suarez Physical Therapy, we use shockwave therapy in the treatment of:

  • Plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, and Achilles tendonitis
  • Tennis and golfer's elbow
  • Patellar tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Shin splints
  • Chronic muscular pain
  • Rotator cuff pain
  • Trigger points that cause muscular pain
  • Painful hips

Some of the benefits of using shockwave therapy treatment are:

  • Minimal side effects
  • No drugs or anesthesia are required
  • Excellent cost vs. effectiveness ratio
  • Positive impact on acute pain

Low-Level Laser
Therapy

Commonly abbreviated as LLLT, low-level laser therapy is an effective procedure used by physical therapists to treat several musculoskeletal conditions. LLLT is a non-invasive light source treatment that uses light to speed up the healing process. Low-level laser therapy speeds up the healing process for tendinopathy sprains/strains and post-surgical edema. This treatment procedure doesn't emit heat, sounds, or vibrations.

It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and accelerates connective tissue repair. Suarez Physical Therapy uses low-level laser therapy for the treatment of:

  • Osteoarthritis of the hip, knee, or ankle
  • Disc herniations
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Hip or shoulder bursitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Shoulder impingement syndromes
  • Tennis elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendinitis

Some of the leading benefits of low-level laser therapy are:

  • Reducing swelling and inflammation
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Increased joint flexibility
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Speeds up recovery time after an injury or surgery
  • Speeds up wound healing

The low-level laser therapy treatment is quick and takes an average of two minutes. The procedure is also painless, causing minimal or no discomfort to the patient.

Spinal Traction
Decompression

Spinal traction decompression is a non-surgical treatment that helps to relieve back pain. Spinal traction decompression entails stretching the spine gently to change the force and the position of the spine. This alteration helps to take the pressure off the spinal disc by creating negative pressure in the disc. After this treatment, herniated or bulging discs may retract, removing pressure from the nerves and other spinal structures. This, in turn, facilitates the movement of oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs, promoting healing.

Our experts at Suarez Physical Therapy use spinal traction decompression to treat:

  • Sciatic or back or neck pain often characterized by pain, tingling, or weakness that extends down the leg and/or arms
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Degenerative disc disease (DDD)
  • Posterior facet syndrome that involves worn spinal joints
  • Diseased or injured spinal nerve roots

This treatment procedure is non-invasive compared to the surgical spinal decompression treatments like microdiscectomy or laminectomy. This treatment helps eliminate neck or back pain and any other radiating or shooting pain that affects the lower and the upper extremities. The procedure uses the same basic principle as spinal tractions that chiropractors and osteopaths have used for a long time.

Functional Dry
Needling (FDN)

Functional dry needling is a treatment procedure that entails inserting a microfilament needle into targeted soft tissue and muscles. We use this procedure to treat painful trigger points, commonly referred to as muscle spasms. Functional dry needling treatment also helps to improve muscle activation and recruitment. If you have healthy muscle, you will experience little discomfort with the needle insertion. However, if your muscle is shortened, sensitive, or has trigger points within it, a patient experiences a deep pressure known as twitch response.

Even though a patient may experience slight discomfort at the needling site, positive results occur right away or within a few physiotherapy sessions. At Suarez Physical Therapy, we use functional dry needling to treat the following conditions:

  • Chronic or acute pain
  • Headaches
  • Knee and calf pain
  • Back and neck pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Pain that does not respond to traditional PT
  • IT-Band Friction syndrome
  • Myofascial stiffness and pain
  • Whiplash
  • Tendinitis
  • Sciatica

The thin needles penetrate the skin to increase the range of motion, flexibility, and muscular strength. This therapy helps to relieve trigger point pain in the muscular and connective tissues. FDN is also effective in decreasing sensitization of nerves or eliminating neuromusculoskeletal pain.

Orthopedic/Sports Physical Therapy

There is nothing worse for an athlete than having to sit out of a game because of an injury or pain.

Our rehab program entails establishing a program that allows players to train within the constraints of the injury.

We work with players to create a plan for both inside and outside the clinic to ensure that they engage in training as much as their injury allows.

Our experts have a deep understanding of biomechanics and exercise science, the two most important subjects in the rehabilitation of sports-related injuries.
