Physical Therapy

If you need physical therapy, consider the Wisconsin Performance Institute. Our movement experts utilize state-of-the-art Noraxon technology to pinpoint movement issues and correct them, resulting in improved range of motion and more powerful movements with less pain. They will help you return from injury, optimize your movement, and perform at the highest level.

What does that mean?

  • If you’re a runner, it means a more efficient stride and fewer physical breakdowns.
  • If you’re a golfer, it means hitting the ball farther without hurting your back, wrists, or elbows.
  • And if you’re someone who likes being active, it means maintaining a higher activity level longer.

Whether you’re recovering from an injury or dealing with the stresses and strains of age, the WPI can speed your return to activity and get you back to optimal performance.

ACL Rehabilitation

An ACL tear is a traumatic injury — not just because it’s severe, but because of what it takes to rehab from the injury. Fortunately, the WPI has the region’s most comprehensive and data-backed rehab program to take you from surgery to a full return to activity.

Our equipment accurately measures strength and range of motion, and tracks it across the entire rehab process. WPI’s physical therapists balance your desire to get back to activity with the need to take a measured approach, so you don’t put unnecessary stress on your knee. Finally, we consider the whole body. We correct overcompensation and make sure your body is strong and evenly balanced.

It’s not just about doing the work – it’s about doing the right work the right way, measuring the progress, and seeing the results.

Post-Surgery

Coming off surgery, you just want to get back to doing what you love as soon as you can. We understand, so we create a personalized program to help you do just that – at a pace that’s right for you, with exercises to help you meet your goals. In addition, we measure your progress, so you can see improvement and be motivated to do more. At WPI, we take your post-surgery rehabilitation to another level. Call it “reinvention.”

This will also help prevent future injuries by restoring imbalances and normalizing movement patterns.

Joint Replacement

Have you had a joint replacement and lead an active lifestyle? Do you feel like you haven’t fully gotten back to where you’d like to be? Has your walking gait not fully returned to normal even after going through formal physical therapy? The experts at the Wisconsin Performance Institute are here to help.

If you’re looking to return to high-level activity after joint replacement, the WPI has the expertise and technology to help you achieve those goals.

We’ll help you optimize your movement, regain your strength, and create a customized plan tailored to you to get to where you want to be.

TESTIMONIAL

Pushed out of my comfort zone
After injuring my lower back and having the feeling of uneven leg muscles, Jesse put me through some challenging workouts. Not only were they workouts I’ve never done before, but they pushed me out of my comfort zone. I will take these workouts and the knowledge I’ve learned from the WPI team with me through the rest of my basketball and athletic career.

Moving beyond knee pain
Sheila is such a well-trained and totally involved therapist! I thought my knee problems were beyond fixing, but she is showing me clear ways I can move beyond knee pain and creating an exercise strategy that supports strengthening the muscles and areas that need it. I feel so hopeful and excited!
