PHILOSOPHY

Aloha Physical Therapy and Fitness strives to:

  • Find the original source of a patient’s dysfunction and/or instability.
  • Educate the patient on their dysfunction and ways to change daily habits which may be playing into the problems.
  • Address soft tissue, joint and neural dysfunctions as appropriate, along with flexibility issues as appropriate.
  • Retrain neuromotor control (how the body naturally moves before injury and compensation).
  • Improve functional strength.
  • Improve performance on a properly working system.

Let Aloha Physical Therapy and Fitness progress you from a physical therapy patient to a personal training / fitness client and back to a pain-free, productive and performance-enhanced life!
