Physical Therapy is a treatment utilized with individuals with various diagnosis including orthopedic, sports injuries, neurological, chronic disease, and neuromuscular conditions. All of our therapists use manual techniques, modalities and therapeutic exercise to rehabilitate our patients. Here at Gaffney Physical Therapy we provide one on one customized treatment, we work as an interdisciplinary team to ensure the best quality of care. Our board certified therapists treat clients of all ages from infancy through adulthood.
Occupational therapy is a health and rehabilitation profession. Occupational therapists work with people of all ages who need specialized assistance to lead independent, productive, and satisfying lives due to physical, developmental, social, or emotional problems. Occupational therapists use the "occupations" of self-care, work, and play/leisure activities to increase independence, enhance development, and/or prevent disability. To achieve these goals occupational therapists may also adapt the task or the environment.
Massage is an old healing art. It was known to our ancestors and was practiced after bathing and exercise to balance and center the body. They understood that health involves equal development of the mind and body. In the world we live in, we rarely take time to allow our bodies to recover from the rigors and pressures of every day routines. Endless meetings, deadlines and errands can lead to burnout and illness which will eventually make us ineffective in our work and home lives. Massage is one way to lessen and relieve these stresses that dull our minds and weaken our bodies. Massage is basically touch. Using the palms of the hands, the forearms, fingertips, elbows and knuckles, the therapist will stroke, push, pull, knead and tap away tension, muscular pain and stiffness from your body. We weren't given an owner’s manual when we were born, so we have to learn as we go. Massage is one step on the path.
