Only ten days into the New Year and resolutions continue to run rampant. Among the most common New Year’s resolutions: to get fit. For some this is an easy goal, the hardest part being sticking with it. For others, who may be suffering from an injury, a stroke or chronic back pain, “getting fit” may require some extra steps. Either way, the ultimate goal is to improve quality of life, which is exactly what the team of physical therapists at Sea Coast Physical Therapy, Inc. in Hampstead has in mind.

Whether it’s your back, knee, shoulder or hip that ails you or your ability to function, physical therapy has a history of helping individuals improve their quality of life.

Within the teal building attached to the front of Second Wind Fitness Center, the physical therapists at Sea Coast bring more than 25 years combined Orthopedic/ Sports Medicine and Manual Therapy experience to their therapy tables.

“We treat everything,” said David Johnson, PT, DPT, CSCS. “From upper and lower extremity injuries, hands, hips, neck, back pain, gait/balance problems and stroke. We are the only provider in the area that offers pool therapy. We work to help patients to restore optimal function. Everyone has their own goals of what that is and we work with the patient to make specific goals they can achieve.”

At Sea Coast, everyone begins with a personal evaluation.

“Goals are tailored to meet your specific needs,” said Johnson. “We then choose from a broad range of treatment options including Manual Therapy (manipulation, mobilizations, myofascial release, strain/counterstrain, deep and superficial massage and the Mckenzie approach, just to name a few), modalities, therapuetic exercise and  pool therapy. To maximize recovery, patient follow-ups are hour-long, one-on-one care with the same therapist each visit."

“We see between 20 to 30 patients a day and can get new patients on the road to recovery within 48 hours of a phone call,” added Johnson.
