Peak Performance

In North Carolina, physical therapy treatment may be initiated by a licensed physical therapist when the patient is referred by a qualified and licensed practitioner. Qualified practitioners include Physicians and Physician Assistants, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Dentists, Chiropractors, and Podiatrists. Most private insurance also provide direct access to physical therapy without a referral from a physician. Call our office to determine if your insurance supports direct access.

Peak Performance physical therapists are licensed health care professionals who evaluate and treat people with health problems resulting from injury or disease. They measure many aspects of human function including muscle strength, joint range of motion, endurance and balance. They assess where the deficits are causing pain or decreased function, and formulate a treatment plan to promote the patient’s recovery. Many of our therapists specialize in treating specific areas of the body such as the back, neck, hand, or shoulder. Or they may concentrate on pre- and post-surgical care, sports injuries, stroke rehabilitation, or one of the other areas of physical therapy.

Programs are customized to meet each particular patient’s needs. Peak Performance therapists work closely with both patients and their physician to develop effective rehabilitation programs.

  • Aquatic Exercise and Therapy
    Aquatic exercise is a good choice for maintaining joint range of motion and for enabling patients to continue with their daily activities with less pain or restriction of movement. The buoyancy of the water reduces stress on joints while its resistance helps build muscles.

    Aquatic exercise is an effective method of easing the pain and stiffness of arthritis by exercising in a warm water pool, and it’s an excellent option for anyone wishing to get into shape gently and safely.

    Peak Performance’s aquatic therapy is conducted at Courts Plus, located at 2911 Brunswick Avenue in New Bern and 104 N. Marine Boulevard in Jacksonville, just a short distance from each clinic.

  • Lymphedema Therapy Program
    Lymphedema is the chronic swelling of an extremity or other part of the body caused by a deficiency in the flow of lymph fluid from the affected area. Lymphedema develops in patients due to the surgical removing of lymph nodes such as a mastectomy or prostate surgery, by congenital defect, or by destruction of extensive lymphatic pathways due to trauma, surgery or radiation.

    Lymphedema can develop at any time, sometimes months or years after surgery, injury or radiation. Infections, rashes, or inflamed muscles cause the body to send extra healing fluid to the area of inflammation. As this extra fluid with other tissue waste, the extremity swells and hardens. In addition, bacteria can multiply and spread infection rapidly.

    Treatment for patients ranging from mild to severe cases is provided by Peak Performance therapists who are specially trained in lymphedema.
