OPTM Physical Therapy of Saratoga
OPTM (Optimum Performance Through Movement) Physical Therapy of Saratoga is a physical therapy center, which provides education and physical therapy rehabilitation services for patients of all ages and activity levels. We opened our doors in July of 2004 to best serve the local community of physicians and patients throughout the Bay Area. We specialize in orthopedic physical therapy, sports medicine, exercise prescription and conditioning, and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries.
All of our patients are evaluated by a licensed physical therapist, which includes a discussion of his or her functional limitations and how it adversely affects their life. A physical exam is conducted to determine the patients' physical impairments. We then develop a customized treatment program based on the clinical findings and the patients' goals. All treatments will be one-on-one with a licensed physical therapist and skilled care will be provided under his or her direction and supervision.
Our physical therapy treatment techniques include a combination of manual therapy, strength training, flexibility exercises, aerobic conditioning, and therapeutic modalities, which include ice, heat, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation. All of our patients are educated on his or her specific condition and effective self-management, including instruction on proper body mechanics, body positioning and ergonomics. Average treatment times range from 45 to 90 minutes per session. Our primary objective is to provide a safe and comforting rehabilitation environment and to return patients to a life independent of regimented therapy as quickly as possible.
