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
I would recommend coming here! I have had headaches for over a decade. I would go to doctor after doctor and explain to them that I don’t simply want pills thrown at the problem. I never felt listened to. I didn’t feel like these doctors were on my side. They never seemed to want to help me find the problem, instead they just wanted to help me manage the symptoms. I don’t believe it’s natural or right to be in pain every day of your life, so managing the symptoms was not a desirable solution for me. Then I came across Charles Oliver and his staff. He immediately caught my attention when he talked to me about getting to the root of the problem. I love his holistic approach. And the best part is that he is listening to me. I finally feel like I have someone rooting for me and actively helping me heal rather than just managing my symptoms. He did a comprehensive evaluation and x-rays. He showed me step-by-step what was wrong and how it could be fixed. I absolutely love his approach. Thank you so much Charles Oliver and staff! I would 100% recommend coming to this business. In fact, I already have told friends and family how much this is helping me and I’ve recommended they make appointments as well.
I also talked to Dr. Oliver about my knee pain. He has been treating the pain I’ve had in my left knee. I’ve had the pain for 2.5 years. It got to the point where I had to wear a knee brace the majority of the time because it hurt to walk. Since Dr. Oliver has been treating my knee the pain is gone. It is uncomfortable from time to time but it is no longer painful. During my knee treatment there was even a time I was not able to go back to the chiropractor for a month. During that month away from treatment my knee pain did not return. I am in awe at how quickly he is able to make pain go away with his treatments.
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!
