Welcome to TheraMAX Rehabilitation & Sports Physical Therapy

Laser Treatment NEW at TheraMAX

Phototherapy is a physical treatment modality using Superluminous Diode (SLD) and Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to emit photons (light) in very specific regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Photons of near infrared and visible red penetrate the skin stimulating a cascade of clinical benefits.

The non-invasive, Low Level Laser Energy creates biological changes at the cellular level. Light energy is absorbed by mitochondria and cell membranes and converted into biological energy. This process induces increased tissue healing, an accelerated inflammatory process and an enhanced immune response.

The coherent focused Low Level Laser energy penetrates deeply to stimulate the target tissue while the Superluminous Diodes delivers a broader beam producing evenly distributed visible red and infrared energy over a much larger area.

This recruitment of larger tissue area enhances the healing process, resulting in improved overall function. Patients will gain tissue mobility, have reduced pain associated with muscle and joint dysfunction, and notice improved healing of both acute and chronic conditions.

Some of the many conditions which have been successfully treated with laser include Athletic Injuries, Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbosacral pain and dysfunction, Headache, Temporo-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ), Sinusitis, Shoulder, Elbow and Hand pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Hip, Knee and Ankle pain, Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis and skin wounds.

Direct Access to Physical Therapy

Under New York State Law patients may now receive treatment from a licensed Physical Therapist without a physicians referral for up to 10 visits or 30 days, whichever occurs first. If permitted by your insurance company, you can now be evaluated and treated without having to first obtain a referral.

Even with Direct Access, your physician will remain fully involved in your rehabilitation process. Your physician will be sent a copy of your evaluation and be kept continually updated on your progress. When appropriate, the Physical Therapist will refer you to a physician for more invasive testing such as an MRI or x-rays.

Please call our office for further assistance or to schedule an appointment.

Tips from the Experts

Sciatica


Millions of people suffer from low back pain each day. Most are between the ages of 30 and 50, and many endure not only back pain, but also severe pain or numbness running into one or both legs. The result: loss of activity, inability to work and inability to participate in the activities we enjoy most. It is estimated that some 80 to 90% of Americans will suffer from back pain during their lifetime, about 50% of which will have more than one episode. Often times, you will hear the name “Sciatica” associated with this pain, and rightly so.
