Momentum Physical Therapy

A Sports Orthopedic Clinic, Specializing In Post-Surgical Care And Injury Management

Over the last five years the doctors of Spine & Neuromuscular Associates of SEI have created and cultivated one of the best kept secrets in Dearborn County and South East Indiana. We have created a comprehensive phyical therapy department that treats all of your musculoskeletal needs. And now it can stand out and be recognized for the exceptional service that it provides. We have chosen our name because of the ever increasing rate of business that is patient driven. You the patient are the reason we are growing. We thank you for forcing our hand in this expansion, because of you we are MOMENTUM PHYSICAL THERAPY.

Momentum Physical Therapy is not a new practice. We have been quietly servicing all of Cincinnati's largest orthopedic surgical groups for the last five years. Why drive to the city after surgery? Our doctors of Physical Therapy have been the choice of many patient's for post-surgical after care, sports injury management & recovery, auto accidents, workers comp, frequent falling, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and many other conditions. If it hurts we can help.

The Momentum Physical Therapy Way

At Momentum we don't treat patient's, we treat family. We don't lecture you, we teach you. We believe in the power of optimism and laughter with hard work. We believe in treating the entire problem instead of only the source of your pain. We believe that you should leave feeling better than before you were ever hurt. We feel your time is important--our average wait time is less than 1 minute. We believe you absolutely have to lay your hands on the patient to improve them. We believe in setting the standards that other clinics have to live up to.

Getting Started

For Physical Therapy all you need is an order from your family physician, chiropractor, surgeon, podiatrist, or dentist. It has been reported that in July of 2013 patients will be able to see a physical therapist directly without an order. Simply call with your order and schedule an evaluation. As a courtesy we will call your insurance company for your benefit information. Also, we have very reasonable time of service rates for people without insurance. Call for an evaluation today!

Our Thoughts On Common Concerns

You Don't Have To Hurt.

Often people associate the aches and pains of life with aging. While it is true that we are more prone to hurting as we age from conditions like osteoarthritis, joint degeneration, peripheral vascular disease, and fibromyalgia--we don't have to hurt. We can improve and minimize the effects of all of these conditions with a healthy musculoskeletal system.

What Could You Possibly Do For Osteoarthritis?

Nothing. We don't treat osteoarthritis. We don't have to.

What Could You Possibly Do For Osteoarthritis Pain?

Often we give arthritis too much credit. It's one of those things that everybody has, but not everybody hurt's from. Why? This is because for the most part osteoarthritis is a pain magnifier not a pain generator. Only in later stages does arthritis cause pain. In early to moderate development arthritis will take what used to stiffness and maybe a little achiness from activity and turning it to higher level pain. Did you know that most of the pain that is attributed to arthritis isn't even amplified by arthritis? A majority of our joint pain is from the soft tissue (tendons, ligaments, fascia, and joint lining) around our joints. Our soft tissue hurts because it doesn't like how joint is behaving. The point is we can make your joints happier so that arthritis doesn't rule your life. 

 So...What Is Causing My Joint Pain?

Weakness, muscle imbalance, and poor blood profusion to your joints. All of these are easily improved with physical therapy. You dont have to wait until a joint replacement is necessary for pain relief.

How Can You Help With Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is often a pain problem associated with the myofascial pain syndrome. The fascia develops adhesions (a plaque) that often generate pain points along the muscle which increase as the muscle terminates into tendon at a joint. This plaque reduces superficial blood flow. A lack of blood flow starves the tissue, causing pain. The nerve fibers send out a distress signal. The more weakness a person develops the more they stress the tendons and fascia, this advances the problem. Why does this happen? It's our lifestyle. We sit more and we have jobs or do tasks with a fixed posture and repetitive movements. In writing this I sat in a chair and repetitively moved my fingers. We can improve blood flow into the fascia and we can strengthen the tissue.
