Sanford Health announces new physical therapy services

Sanford Health is pleased to welcome Physical Therapy Solutions to the family. Now named Sanford Physical Therapy Solutions, the physical therapy team is skilled in all types of therapy, with a special emphasis in Postural Restoration, an innovative therapy strategy that focuses on the influence of posture and correct body movement as the foundation for healthy living.

“Postural Restoration therapy restores balance to your body by treating movement dysfunction,” says Joan Hanson, Sanford Physical Therapy Solutions. “We specialize in correcting biomechanical deficiencies at the core of chronic pain by evaluating the human body as an extremely complex machine. Postural Restoration is used to treat conditions such as joint pain, back and neck pain, shoulder impingement, temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ), and scoliosis.”Hanson is one of only 23 physical therapists in the country certified in Postural Restoration. Sanford Physical Therapy Solutions is one of only 15 Postural Restoration Certified Centers in the country.

“The addition of the Postural Restoration trained therapists complements existing traditional therapy services with a proven and effective method for helping patients achieve a better lifestyle,” says Kevin Lampe, Sanford USD Medical Center Vice President. “This collaboration will combine the entrepreneurial spirit of Physical Therapy Solutions and Sanford’s ability to provide excellent patient care. Sanford Physical Therapy Solutions opened in 1999 and is currently located at 1721 S. Cleveland Avenue, Suite 200 in Sioux Falls.

“The opportunity to collaborate with Sanford Health expands our ability to offer a revolutionary approach to physical medicine,” adds Hanson.
