Among the many conditions treated are:


Orthopedic Conditions

A significant part of our practice stems from orthopedics: the focus on injuries and conditions of the skeletal system and its muscles, joints and ligaments.

We offer customized, one-on-one care to help with back and neck pain and repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

Our manual therapy techniques combined with an exercise program help to reduce pain and restore movement quickly.

 

Pre and Post Surgery Rehabilitation

Physical therapy both before and after surgery can contribute to better surgical outcomes and faster recovery time, particularly in operations, such as; full joint replacements.

Our physical therapists will work closely with your doctors, to create a treatment program, to help you increase strength, activity and motion both before and after surgery.

 


Sports Injuries

From professional to semi-professional to recreational athletes suffering from sports injuries, we offer specialized care to help you get back to the game you enjoy as quickly as possible.

We will work quickly to reduce inflammation and pain to start the healing process. We will work with you one-on-one to help set up a series of exercises and therapies to heal your injury and help prevent its recurrence.

 


Motor Vehicle Accidents and Trauma

Our physical therapists will work with your doctors following a motor vehicle accident to help you repair and strengthen damaged tissue. We will evaluate your injury and provide safe and effective evidence-based treatment to help control your pain, decrease inflammation and restore flexibility. Our manual therapy approach is also effective in reducing painful muscle spasms and encouraging the healing process.


Neck and Back Pain

Eighty percent of Americans will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives and 50 percent will be plagued by neck pain. Both conditions can have serious impact on the patient’s quality of life and may impact their ability to work and participate in normal family life.

The physical therapists at Gary Lynch Physical Therapy in the Forest Hill and Bel Air area, offer the latest evidence-based treatments to pinpoint the cause of the pain and relieve it.

 

Neurological Conditions

Patients with conditions or injuries impacting the central and peripheral nervous system, benefit greatly from physical therapies aimed to help them recover their functionality and improve balance.

Our commitment to the latest evidence-based treatments will help patients with neurological illnesses restore functionality and resume normal living as quickly as possible.

 

Balance and Falls Risk

Our balance assessment and fall risk assessments help to prevent serious injuries in people with balance disorders. In a normal lifetime, about 42 per cent of Americans will experience some form of dizziness and balance disorder.

If it is not diagnosed and treated promptly, it can lead to more serious problems in the future and heighten the risk of falls.

 

Vestibular Issues

If you are prone to frequent falls, imbalance, dizziness or migraines, you may be experiencing a problem with your vestibular system: your main balance system.

We will work with you to identify the source of the problem and help relieve your pain, returning you to your normal level of activity as quickly as possible.

Physical therapy plays an important role in preventing additional issues stemming from balance irregularities.

 

Lymphedema

Lymphedema is a condition that refers to swelling occurring in one of your arms or legs. This issue can arise when lymph nodes are damaged or removed during surgery, after infection, or when scar formation blocks the lymphatic fluid flow.

While it cannot be cured, it can be controlled with physical therapy and self-management.

Our physical therapists will work with you to determine a custom course of treatment.

 

Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia

Our specially trained physical therapists will use hands-on techniques, like manipulation and mobilization, to help patients in chronic pain find relief associated with gradually restoring strength and range of motion.

We understand how long term pain conditions like fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue can impact a patient’s quality of life, and we work to find customized treatment solutions to reduce pain and restore movement.

 

Deconditioning and Loss of Strength

Hospitalization, injury, or disease can lead to periods of decreased mobility and movement. With decreased movement there is usually a loss of strength and endurance, that limits a person's ability to walk and perform daily activities. At Gary Lynch Physical Therapy we can design a specialized program to reverse the effects of immobility, restoring strength, endurance and function.


Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis can severely impact a patient's quality of life. In this disease of the bones, patients may lose too much bone, make too little bone, or both.

As a result their bones are extremely fragile and weak and can break from even minor falls or bumps.

Physical therapy combined with other treatments can help to halt the progress of osteoporosis.
