We know you have a choice in finding the right therapist. We are committed to serving our patients with honesty, integrity and compassion. Functional Transformation Mobile Rehab is proud to serve Sarasota and Charlotte County residents and are thankful for both patient and doctors referrals making us best-in-class for physical therapy in the area.

Why choose us over other clinics?

Our therapist comes to you and focuses on providing a plan of care that puts you on the right path to reaching your goals in wellness. Being in your own home environment helps create a healthy atmosphere. We are able to treat a wide variety of ages and conditions with our mobile services. 

Our approach is evidence based and our sessions are always one-on-one and individualized based on a patient’s specific needs. When working with an injury, we know that the pain is not always where the problem is and could be referred pain coming from a different part of your body. We will work to find the source/ root cause of your issue. Our therapist will help in education and work in collaboration with your healthcare providers when creating a plan for your physical therapy. ​

Functional Transformations Therapists have treated hundreds of patients in the Suncoast Region who previously suffered from issues that just wouldn’t improve; like muscle, joint, and nerve pain.

Who benefits from physical therapy?

Anyone who has had an injury. The injury may have been work or sports related, post-operative, or even from overuse. No matter where it started, we can provide you with the care that you deserve. 

General Orthopedics

Musculoskeletal pain can be effectively treated with physical therapy and can help to either reduce or eliminate the need for medications, surgery, or shots. We get to the root of the problem, help you to overcome your current limitations, and get you back to an active lifestyle. 

Physical Therapy for Parkinson’s

One of the things you will need to do if diagnosed with Parkinson’s is to stay ACTIVE! 

Exercise is very beneficial for patients with Parkinson’s. Working with a trained Physical therapist is highly recommended. Why? Great question! Your therapist will guide you through the right moves to help increase your mobility, strength, and balance. Let’s take a look at some things your therapist can help you work on.

Note: Always consult your primary care physician before starting any exercise program. You will also want to work with a certified physical therapist that knows how to best help you.

Amplitude Movement

LSVT BIG® for Parkinson’s is designed to help patients increase their amplitude of movement through exaggerated physical moves. Some of the movements you may be asked to perform could be wide arm swings or high steps. These types of motions help in retaining the muscles and slow down the progression of hypokinesia, the shuffling or smaller movements that come from Parkinson’s. So now you know a little more about LSVT but do you know what the letters stand for? LSVT is an acronym for Lee Silverman Voice Treatment and LSVT LOUD is therapy to amplify the voice of Parkinson’s patients. 

If you are a loved one who has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s ask your primary physician about LSVT Treatments or reach out to a certified therapist. We are here to help keep you moving.

Reciprocal Motions

Reciprocal Movements are what you see when someone is walking, swimming, or cycling; left-to-right and side-to-side arm or leg movements. Your Parkinson’s disease may affect these movements and working with a therapist may help in reinforcing these movements with exercises designed to create patterns. Other activities, like dance and tai chi, can be fun ways to incorporate these movements into a daily lifestyle.

Balance Work

Parkinson’s can affect your balance causing you to feel unstable or unsure of your footing. It can also keep you from venturing out in public for fear of falling. Our certified therapist can help you with gait training. They will teach you new ways to compensate for any balance issues and help you feel more confident.

Stretching and Flexibility

Patients with Parkinson’s experience stiffness (tight hips, hamstrings, calf muscles) and it’s recommended that they stretch frequently throughout the day. This helps prevent  tightness and allows for more fluid movements. Speak with one of our certified therapists and ask them to show you how.

Strength Training

Strength training is important for everyone, not just those affected by Parkinson’s. It is important for all of us to keep our muscles strong since they weaken with age. Research has suggested this is a bigger problem for patients living with Parkinson’s. Your therapists will work with you on types of exercises you can do to help keep your muscles strong. 

Parkinson's Disease and Movement

Our therapists work to help educate on the importance of movement along with providing exceptional care. Assisting you with different exercises that are not only beneficial, but help empower you to maintain better health. The good news is that with timely treatment, patients with dystonia, ataxia, essential tremor and similar conditions have seen improvement and slowing progression.
