100% Focused on You

Unlike many other clinics where there are crowded treatment areas and competition for the attention of the therapist, all physical therapy visits at Inspire Health are one-on-one with your therapist for an entire hour. This distinctive approach allows you to get the most out of each visit and achieve your goals faster.

Our priority is always to provide top-notch, quality care. Our physical therapists are leaders in the industry with extensive knowledge, experience and education. We remain up to date with the latest research and treatment options and regularly participate in quality continuing education. In addition, all of our therapists hold specialist certifications as Board Certified Orthopedic Specialists or McKenzie Method Certified.  Only 132 PTs in the state of Georgia hold the Orthopedic Certified Specialist designation.

All of our therapists are also STOTT PILATES® trained and certified instructors. Whether you are dealing with an acute injury or managing a chronic condition, Inspire Health physical therapists can work with you to develop a pilates program to manage your specific needs. We can then either continue to work with you each session or communicate with the rest of our highly-qualified team to transition to a more fitness-based program.

Initial Evaluation.

On your first visit, your therapist will perform a comprehensive, one-hour evaluation to determine your specific needs and impairments. This begins with a subjective history, describing the onset and nature of your symptoms, pain level and patterns, pertinent medical history and previous treatment. We will then perform a thorough physical exam to determine the cause of your symptoms. This may include an evaluation of your range of motion (ROM), strength, flexibility, aggravating movements and special tests.

Clinical Pilates.

Who over 30 years old doesn’t have some chronic injury they are managing? If you need a consultation with a physical therapist, we are readily available and can easily help to modify your pilates program, provide physical therapy services if indicated, or communicate with/refer you to a physician if needed. Some clients, because of a condition they are managing, prefer to have a physical therapist as their regular pilates instructor. We call this Clinical Pilates. Whatever your need, we have a qualified instructor for you. What could be more convenient or simpler to keep you on track with your fitness program?

Treatment

Manual Therapy:
Manual therapy is a clinical approach utilizing skilled, specific hands-on techniques, including soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, joint mobilization and manipulation. The purpose is to reduce pain, increase ROM and tissue extensibility and/or promote relaxation.

Real Time Ultrasound Imaging:
Inspire Health is one of only a few PT facilities in Atlanta to be using Real Time Ultrasound Imaging technology for patient education and biofeedback in the training of the “core”. Ultrasound allows us to visualize the deep spinal stabilizers and see if and how they are being used.

Modalities:
Passive modalities such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, mechanical traction and hot or cold packs, may be used as an adjunct to your treatment. The goal is to reduce your pain and get you moving again. At Inspire, we believe in making you an active participant in your therapy.

Therapeutic Exercise including STOTT PILATES®:
Therapeutic exercise is the scientific use of bodily movement to restore normal function in diseased or injured tissues. This includes range of motion, stretching, strengthening, coordination and balance activities. Exercises are prescribed by your physical therapist based on your individual needs with special consideration for your diagnosis, age and complicating factors.

At Inspire, we also use STOTT PILATES® as therapeutic exercise. There are thousands of exercises in the STOTT PILATES® repertoire – we choose the exercises most appropriate to achieve your specific goals.
