Choosy People / Parents choose Cradle to Rocker, LLC for their Physical Therapy!

I was trying to describe my business model to a friend the other day.  I explained that most of my patients are people who take initiative to find the “best” for their family.  At Cradle to Rocker I am able to use my best professional judgment to provide services at a frequency and intensity that meet family and personal needs.  I respect the busy stressful lives of my families.  Through my many years working in community and home therapy settings I realize that PT needs to be integrated into the patient’s life and not become their life!

I am so blessed that God gifted me with the intelligence, motivation, time and opportunities to develop a unique skill set.  I pursue modern techniques and research while still respecting and embracing traditional therapy interventions.  I am a firm believer in hands on therapy, yet I know the importance of exercise and fitness.

The “skill” of a therapist is what a PT consumer is paying for.  Telling someone to do an exercise while walking away to do a note / work with another patient is not how I conduct a therapy session.  If a session repeats the last session,  and I don’t  need to manually guide ,mobilize or modify and adapt the exercises then PT frequency (how often they come – weekly, every other week, etc) is decreased.  A lower frequency over a longer duration (how many weeks / months they come to PT) allows the patient to incorporate their new exercises / mobility into their lifestyle and PT sessions can focus on adapting posture, mechanics and exercises as recovery progresses.

Thanks to all my supporters – my family, my patients and Families!

Physical Therapy for Every Member of the Family!

Kids are my specialty, and I thoroughly enjoy working with babies, tots, kids and teens.  One of the goals that I really wanted to accomplish in my own practice was to truly reach out to the whole family.  I want families to say, “Andrea is our family’s Physical Therapist”.  Families have physicians, dentists, eye doctors, chiropractors, etc.  I want to be their PT!

I have 2 dedicated treatment areas – one for the Kid & Cradle group and one for the Rocker & Caregiver group.  I need to remind people that the rocker in my vision doesn’t necessarily mean old – caregivers range from teens to senior citizens, but they are active and vibrant and my mission is to help them stay that way!  Pain and mobility limitations happen and they shouldn’t be ignored – Physical Therapy can reduce or eliminate pain and restore function so that families can live life to the fullest.

I want to help YOU take care of Yourself!
