Physical Therapy Services
1. Orthopedic care
The therapists at Freedom PT Services are your musculoskeletal system specialists. Therapists treat functional impairments of bone, joint, and muscular disorders. In addition to functional impairments, PTs also work together with orthopedic surgeons to maximize recovery from surgeries, such as total joint replacements, spinal surgeries, arthroscopic and reconstructive surgeries, and rotator cuff repairs, to name a few. Working with a PT can be an alternative to injections and costly procedures.
2. TMJ Treatment
Freedom PT Services is the leading therapy clinic for TMJ dysfunction and craniofacial pain. Micahel Karegennaes, physical therapist and owner of Freedom PT Services is a world-renowned TMJ specialist and has taught many of the Freedom therapists his skills. Therapists work with dentists, neurologists, and headache specialists to address the cause and treat the symptoms of the jaw, head, and facial pain.
3. Spinal Services
Neck and back pain can be debilitating and lead to chronic conditions. The hands-on approach that the therapists at Freedom PT Services take allows for better treatment outcomes and quicker recovery times. Many therapy approaches to neck and back pain are more effective and less invasive in restoring function and decreasing pain. From bulging discs to degenerative disc disease to sciatica, PT can help.
4. Custom Orthotics
The positioning of the foot can affect the whole body. The therapists at Freedom PT Services take a full-body approach when looking at the patient. Poor foot and ankle control can affect the knees, hips, low back, and even the shoulders and neck. Our orthotics specialists complete a full evaluation of strength, flexibility, and stability to place you in a custom-fabricated insert to optimize foot and ankle movement.
5. Dry Needling
A certified dry-needling therapist performs dry needling. It can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal issues. Dry needling works by breaking the pain cycle by restoring function to muscles. The target of the dry needling is myofascial trigger points, the knots that can sometimes be felt close to the surfaces and sometimes deeper.
6. Balance and Vestibular
One of the leading causes of injury is falls due to dizziness and balance dysfunction. Working with a skilled PT can help reduce dizziness and balance issues due to benign positional paroxysmal vertigo (BPPV), concussions, cervicogenic dizziness, and vestibular neuritis, along with many other causes.
7. Chronic Pain Management
Chronic pain is defined by symptoms lasting longer than 6 months that limit your quality of life, affecting your activity, sleep, or mental state. The multifaceted approach Freedom PT uses takes an individual and holistic approach using multiple therapies to reduce pain and restore function.
8. Therapeutic Laser Therapy
Therapeutic Laser Therapy increases blood flow, flexibility, function, and healing while reducing pain and spasticity. The Freedom laser is a 60W on-the-skin laser that works to push energy into cells, causing metabolic changes at the cellular level. Laser therapy is a great addition to the hands-on treatment therapists provides for many different conditions.
9. TPI Golf
Our TPI-certified physical therapist combines the best of two worlds for some. He is a movement specialist who has received special training designed to specifically analyze and improve the golf swing. You don’t need pain with your golf game to benefit from the expertise. Move better to prevent injuries that could keep you off the greens.
10. Throwing Analysis and Performance
Injury rates for overhead-throwing athletes, especially baseball players, are rising. It is becoming more and more common as each season transitions to the next to have more players off the field and in the clinic rehabbing an injury. At Freedom Physical Therapy Services, our Throwing Specialists utilize up-to-date technology to assist athletes in training. They work to improve performance levels and decrease injury rates to allow more on-field play.
11. Radial Shockwave Therapy
This highly effective treatment has been found to improve the rate of healing in soft tissue tendinopathies, such as Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff bursitis, tennis elbow, and carpal tunnel. Chronic pain can be improved typically within 4-5 sessions.
12. Bio-Point Acupressure Therapy
One of the few places within the area that offers this alternative medicine technique. The treatment stimulates blood flow, thereby improving strength, mobility, and pain. Similar in principle to acupuncture, acupressure therapy is based on energy flowing through pathways in the body. The technique is performed using direct pressure applied by hand and is deeper than traditional massage.
13. Whiplash Recovery
Whiplash most commonly occurs in motor vehicle accidents when rear-ended. However, high-impact activities such as skiing, equestrian events, football, bungee jumping, roller coasters, and assault can also cause whiplash or whiplash-related injuries. Even a slip and fall can cause whiplash. The goal of PT for whiplash is to help reduce muscle spasms, increase blood circulation, and promote the healing of the neck tissues.
14. Graston Technique
The addition of the Graston technique in treatment helps to speed recovery time for soft tissue restrictions including scar tissue, fascia, and tight muscles. Our specially trained therapists can address acute and chronic conditions.
15. Visceral Manipulation
This gentle technique, performed by expertly trained Freedom Physical Therapists, assists the body in releasing restrictions causing pain and dysfunction. Visceral manipulation addresses imbalances throughout body systems, which may take place within and between structures including vascular, urogenital, musculoskeletal, respiratory, lymphatic, and nervous.
16. Myofascial Release
This hands-on approach treats the body areas which are causing pain and limiting function. Prolonged stretching of the fascia can help release deep tissue restrictions throughout the body.
17. Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral Therapy is a type of manual therapy using light touch to gently manipulate structures affecting the cerebrospinal fluid. Through the palpation of the nervous system, the therapist can discern where there are restrictions in the tissues and release them using safe and gentle techniques. This therapy helps release these tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct.
18. Industrial services
Freedom Occupational Therapists provide internationally recognized workers’ compensation cost reduction services. Our industrial rehabilitation and assessment services prevent work-related injuries, expeditiously return injured workers to their previous job, and reduce claim costs.
Freedom Occupational therapists are experts in this science, offering services to enhance the workplace and home environments to meet the needs of patients, as well as industrial clients. Therapists provide on-site ergonomic evaluation, followed by detailed recommendations. These include recommendations for environmental setup, and equipment tailored to meet the needs of individual and commercial clients.
While lymphedema cannot be cured, swelling is often significantly reduced and controlled with manual therapy, exercise, compression, education, and a home management program. Certified Manual Lymphatic Therapists at Freedom provide these comprehensive services. Our Occupational Therapists also offer additional modalities, G5 Cellutec ™ treatment technology, and pneumatic compression sleeves. These state-of-the-art non-invasive therapies enhance the function of the lymphatic and circulatory system, and the appearance of tissues, muscle, skin, and scalp.
21. Pediatric Services
Therapists deliver individualized and effective treatments for many pediatric conditions including parent education, stretching, strengthening, manual therapy, home exercise programming, sport-specific rehab, and at times, orthotics. Torticollis is a common infant diagnosis and Freedom PT therapists can help treat the infant with no pain or discomfort.

Health and Wellness
24. Personal Training
All of our therapists strive to help you achieve your goals during therapy. From time to time, patients look for alternatives to help continue their progress after therapy is over. Our Personal Training services allow you to continue to work toward your goals and avoid crowded gyms.
Freedom Physical Therapy Services offers Pilates instruction for novice and experienced individuals. Our certified Physical Therapists offer individual Pilates reformer sessions tailored to meet clients’ needs. Pilates may be incorporated into therapy, or provided exclusively. Pilates uses a combination of deep breathing and slow, controlled, non-impact, non-weight-bearing motions. It promotes spinal alignment and muscle coordination, corrects muscle imbalances, and promotes the development of a strong core.
Specialized Freedom Physical Therapists help patients reduce or eliminate inconvenient and embarrassing symptoms associated with incontinence or involuntary loss of bladder or bowel control. Individualized goals are taken into consideration when developing a treatment plan which may include: pelvic muscle exercise, core stabilization, manual therapy, biofeedback, and electrical stimulation.

Our physical therapists are trained to evaluate and treat abdominal, pelvic, colorectal, and gynecologic pain and dysfunction in men, women, and children.

Pelvic pain may be present in many different forms and is often combined with other pelvic, lumbar, and abdominal disorders.
29. Pregnancy and Post-partum
Freedom Physical Therapists offer specialized services for women who are preparing for, experiencing, or recovering from pregnancy. Many changes occur in a woman’s body as a result of pregnancy and childbirth. Changes occur due to extra stress on pelvic structures while carrying a child, trauma during labor and delivery, and strain related to caring for a newborn.
30. Breast Health
Patients who suffer from diseases of the breast often experience musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. Those recovering from lumpectomy and mastectomy surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, commonly complain of neck and shoulder pain, stiffness, and weakness. In addition to the disease of the breast, clogged milk ducts can be very painful when nursing your child. Did you know that the use of therapeutic ultrasound (a conservative treatment that delivers ultrasonic waves with some slight heat) to treat stubborn blocked ducts in nursing moms?
