Benefits of Physical Therapy
Flexibility is the the ability to extend or stretch without injury. The term is usually used to describe muscles but can also be used to describe a movement involving a number of muscles. Along with physiotherapy building muscle strength and aiding in recovery, these exercises can also improve flexibility, a vital part of maintaining a sound body.
Balance sometimes can be difficult after injury, and more often than not, regardless if you are injured or not, the body sometimes works to compensate for weak areas, ultimately throwing the body off-balance in some way just from daily activities.
When someone does have an injury, the ability to balance is sometimes slowed down following an injury and needs to be re-trained. It is also important for some people who have poor generally balance reaction times and are significantly more prone to injuries.
Physical Therapy can help with the following ailments:
- Back pain
- Posture problems
- Sport injuries
- Reduced mobility

I was referred to Dr. Oliver after a neck injury. I had never endured such pain to my neck to where I couldn’t lift a grocery bag. NO matter what my posture was (sitting, standing, laying down), I was in lots of pain. When I called I was concerned they wouldn’t have time to fit me in. Once I explained my situation and pain they had me wait a day for swelling to go down then to come in the next day. I could tell that he “fit” me in cause he was very busy. He still took the time to give me a full evaluation, The staff was amazing and friendly too, Even though I was in pain they could still make you smile. After a week of following Dr. Oliver’s instructions, I was back to normal! I would refer him to any one!!! Thank you Dr. Oliver and Staff
Thank You so much to Dr. Charlie Oliver & staff for getting me walking again. I appreciated the one on one time with Dr. Oliver to develop a plan specifically formulated to help my specific needs. I literally hobbled into his office two days ago in excruciating pain that I felt was going to affect my ability to continue to work as a massage therapist. After he took some X-rays and did an extensive physical evaluation and evaluated my X-rays he sat down and spoke candidly with me and devised a plan for me to get me back on track and on the road to recovery without surgery. He took me aside and provided me with a treatment that very same day because he couldn’t bear to see me hobble out of his door. He wasn’t looking for a way to mask my pain but, to find the source of my pain and correct it.
Dr. Oliver is one of the top two doctors I have ever visited with. Today was my first visit at his clinic and all I can say is WOW!! The office and Dr. Oliver really take the time to explain everything to you and make sure to maintain communication amongst each other. Dr. Oliver is a very intelligent, compassionate, understanding, and yet a caring doctor. You can definitely tell his number one priority is to help you feel better. I feel very fortunate to have found an office like his and look forward to getting better.
I originally found Dr. Oliver when I was looking for someone to help me with ongoing foot issues. As a marching band director I had been referred to a podiatrist and told that I might be looking at surgery. I wasn’t convinced and wanted to try dealing with any underlying issues first so I went looking for a chiropractor who was also a physical therapist. I was convinced that spinal alignment was part of the issue and that the podiatrist would send me to PT first.
When I met with Dr. Oliver and he evaluated my issue he was very honest that he had not treated this particular issue before and that he was willing to work through a course of treatment to get my hip issues straightened out and work on my feet at the same time and see what we could do. That course of treatment was successful and I went on my merry way very happy to have avoided surgery.
Three years later I’m back and addressing a different set of issues that I have been ignoring for a long time. By the time I got to Dr. Oliver I was in so much pain that I was struggling to do my job. Dr. Oliver not only evaluated my structural condition but my overall nutrition and health. He laid out a plan for treatment that addressed not just the underlying structural issues but also helped me to identify the nutritional issues and other health issues that I need to be addressing. We’re well into my treatment plan and I can honestly say that I feel better than I have in years. I’m committed to doing what I need to to feel better and so thankful to find Dr. Oliver and his staff!
First visit for cronic, acute back pain. Dr. Oliver was able to determine the root cause of the pain which, I must say, other doctors I’ve seen hadn’t even attempted to find.
I have spondylolesthesis (a forward shifting of a vertebrae) which allows diminished mobility and flexibility because of the level of constant pain. Yes, the shift caused discs to rupture and touch a nerve. The nerve (being only the transmitting link to the brain for feeling) however, goes to something else telling the nerve what to feel.
That “something else” is the CAUSE of the pain. In my case, it is a specific muscle attached to the spine.
Dr. Oliver prescribed a plan for me that has COMPLETELY worked and made all pain disappear. What sets him apart from others is that he also made a path to solve the underlying problem that caused the pain in the first place. His employees who take me through all the exercises are simply OUTSTANDING in manners and professionalism. I call them ‘my angels’.
Go here. Go here. Go here if you are having problems. A 100% satisfied recommendation!
I originally visited Integrative Medical for issues I was having with my back. After 3 sessions I felt the staff was just throwing me on a massage bed and had me do silly excericises similar to what I did in elementary school for stretches. I had explained my issues to a friend and she recommended me to try out Dr. Oliver. From the minute I walked in Dr. Oliver’s Office, I felt the staff seemed more professional. Dr. Oliver had up to date X-ray equipment that was more detailed oriented. He explained and showed more details to what was my problem with my back than what I got from Integrative Medical. Dr. Oliver would pop my neck and back into place, had me do more challenging excersises that actually strengthened my back, and had more state of the art equipment to treat people with. Needless to say, I left Integrative Medical to continue and complete my 30 sessions with Dr. Oliver. I felt more welcomed as well as more confident in what I was getting from Dr. Oliver than Integrative Medical. I would reccommend Dr. Oliver to any of my personal friends and family.
Dr. Oliver is awesome! I came to see him with a running injury, and after a few visits he had me running pain free again!
Let me just tell you about the best medical experience I have ever had. I went to Dr. Oliver for a specific problem after a failed attempt at chiropractic care in another office. He and his staff listened to me and offered me treatment plans to improve not only my back but my overall health. I didn’t know how bad I’d been feeling until I began to feel better! They take great lengths to offer personalized care and really get to know their patients. I would highly recommend this office, Dr. Oliver and his staff for any ailments you may be having.
