Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic TherapyAquatic therapy can be utilized to address any number of orthopedic issues involving the low back, hip, knee, or ankle. Exercising in water allows for decreased weight bearing on painful joints, and allows you to build strength in a less painful environment. After initial evaluation, we will customize an exercise program that will fit your needs. Our experienced therapists will guide you in exercise using hydrostatic pressure for resistance. The strength you build in the pool will allow you to live a more active and pain-free lifestyle.

  • Pool hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-2:00  PM
  • Located at Western Wyoming Community College Pool

Spinal CareAt Alliance Physical Therapy, you will receive quality care in upper quadrant orthopedic therapy. This includes the shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand.

  • To protect soft tissue structures
  • To immobilize a fracture
  • Post operative management of tendon or ligament surgeries
  • Static progressive or Dynamic splinting to increase motion of joints or increase soft tissue mobility

FCE/Work Testing

Spinal CareAlliance Physical Therapy offers pre-employment testing for employers to help them determine if candidates can safely perform the essential functions for their specific job position.  We work exclusively with employers to help set up appropriate testing conditions and requirements for each position they may wish to have tested.
Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE’s) can also be administered if the employer or physician are requesting them prior to a candidate’s return to work.  An FCE is a comprehensive and detailed test to help determine an individual’s maximum safe ability to perform work tasks after an injury, surgery, or illness.  Once the test is complete the candidate and employer are given recommendations of whether or not the candidate is fully capable to return to their job safely, or what actions should be taken to help them reach this point. Having an FCE performed can significantly help reduce the risk of re-injury to the candidate, decrease the employer’s liability, and improve productivity.

Functional Dry Needling

Spinal CareAlliance Physical Therapy is pleased to offer an innovating treatment for myofascial pain called Functional Dry Needling. Functional Dry Needling is a technique performed by certified physical therapists with a solid filament "dry" needle through the skin into areas of muscle known as trigger points. These trigger points typically occur after a muscle has been contracted repetitively. Our physical therapists use dry needling with the goal of inactivating trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalize impulses transmitted to the muscles. Dry needling is not acupuncture, a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is part of modern Western medicine principles, and supported by research. Please call our office for more information or to schedule a session for Functional Dry Needling.
