If you are someone who experiences pain in your back, feet, shoulders, or knees, then you are likely to find the services of Cardin and Miller Physical Therapy very useful.

Cardin and Miller Physical Therapy is an outpatient physical therapy practice that operates out of three locations in Pennsylvania.

With a wide range of opioid-free, pain management treatments available, Cardin and Miller Physical Therapy will address the cause of your pain. Working to meet your specific personal physical therapy and rehabilitation needs,

we will create a program of treatment that focuses on the correction of the issue, rather than just managing the symptoms.

Back Pain

Back pain can cause considerable discomfort and can be a real disruption to your life. It can prevent you from enjoying your life and can limit your ability to take part in hobbies that you may have once enjoyed.

In addition to the pain and discomfort, issues with your back can cause you to lose sleep leading to an even bigger impact on the quality of your life.

Many things can affect your back, sometimes there may be trapped nerves or problems surrounding the discs in your spine. It is important to get these addressed by a physical therapist who is trained in orthopedics.

Masking the problem with painkillers will not help, and may even create more health problems.

Knee Pain

Problems with your knees can affect your ability to walk far. You may have Runner’s Knee (Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome) Jumper’s Knee (Patellar Tendonitis), Arthritis, Meniscus, or muscle strains which will affect your mobility and cause you considerable discomfort.

Issues with your knees may affect your ability to do your job or to enjoy a sport that you once loved to take part in. This can have a dramatic impact on your life and emotional well-being.

Our physical therapists will be able to help you address the problems with your knees so that you can get back on your feet again.

Foot Pain

Problems with your feet can affect your entire body. If you have foot pain, it can have a knock-on effect on your ankles, knees hips, back, and neck. Addressing problems in your feet is vital for your overall muscle and joint health.

That is why we use gait analysis to assess the way that you walk to identify problems with your feet. From this, we can provide the right physical therapy support, including the use of custom-molded orthotics to correct your gait.

Shoulder Pain

Pains in your shoulders can often be felt on your back, and your neck, and they can even cause severe headaches. When discomfort levels are high, this may have an impact on your ability to sleep, leaving you feeling even worse overall.

Typical problems that may affect your shoulders include Rotator Cuff Tendonitis, Impingement, Labral Tear, Scapular Pain, Scapular Dyskinesia, Arthritis, and Biceps Tendinopathy.

It is important to address issues in your shoulders rather than just masking the pain with medication. Understanding the root cause of the problems is vital in the management of shoulder pain issues through bicep tendonitis exercises.

Temporomandibular Joint 

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is a very painful condition that affects your jaw. Pain here can be felt in your ears, neck, head, and teeth and can cause considerable amounts of pain and discomfort when opening your mouth, and this can have a dramatic effect on your ability to eat and chew food.

With the wider implications of being unable to eat your meals, this painful condition must be addressed to improve your quality of life.

At Cardin and Miller Physical Therapy, we will address this condition after assessing the specific symptoms and causes of your TMJ

Sports Injury 

There are many types of sports injuries and to continue the enjoyment of these sports, it is essential to have the causes addressed by a physical therapist.

While pain management may help you in the short term, it does not address the underlying concern, and this will impact your ability to return to the sport that you care about.

Following a full assessment of symptoms, we will provide treatment options that support your specific needs, ensuring you can head back out and enjoy the sport that you love without any further pain or discomfort.

Pre- and Post-Op Rehabilitation 

Following on from an accident or an operation, your body can take some time to recover. You may want to return to a full and active lifestyle; however, you may not be able to do this with the ease and speed that you would like.

Cardin and Miller Physical Therapy will be able to help you regain strength and function in the specific areas of your body that have been affected by the surgery that you have received.

By doing this, you will be able to avoid developing complications that can hinder your recovery or cause you other problems in the future.
