How We Can Help You
Overview of Common Problems
At Globerman PT we can treat you from the top of your head down to the tip of your toes: for headaches caused by occipital neuralgia, to the foot pain of plantar fascitis.
No matter what hurts we can help. Physical therapists are professional health caregivers who treat people of all ages and conditions from newborn babies to senior citizens.
PTs are specially educated in physics, anatomy, and kinesiology (human movement) and are licensed to clinically examine, diagnose, and treat conditions affecting your muscles, bones, joints, nerves, and skin that limit your mobility.
We're trained to understand how your body works and how to help you when it doesn't. At Globerman Physical Therapy you can trust us to get you moving after injury, illness, or trauma and keep it from happening again.
All of our PTs are licensed by the Physical Therapy Board of California and have exceeded it's standards for continuing education. Our Physical Therapy Assistants (PTAs) are extensively trained clinicians and follow strict guidelines of therapy and rehabilitation when helping you.
We know getting well takes plenty of time, attention, and motivation. We'll partner with you to make it happen. Your PT will examine you, learn your medical history, assess your needs, discuss your goals, and work with you to achieve them. Together you'll plan a program ideally suited for you, with all the time you want for treatment, training, and working out in the gym.
Becuse everyone is unique you’ll need a combination of treatments and exercises specifically tailored to your individual requirements. Using our state of the art equipment, under the direction of your PT, you’ll achieve your long-term health goals, restore function, reduce pain, regain mobility, and prevent disability.
