Advance Rehabilitation, located in the Dogwood building on Cowles Clinic Way in Greensboro, has been serving the physical therapy needs of Greene, Putnam, and Morgan counties for over a decade. Its qualified therapists focus on delivering the highest quality rehabilitation services and improving the quality of life of their patients. “We see patients of all ages, from babies to people of advanced age,” says clinic director April Powell, PT, DPT, ATC. “We help treat everything from sports injuries to knee replacements. We get a good mix.”
The clinic offers services for orthopedic care to treat strains and sprains, arthritis, tendonitis, and more, as well as back and neck pain, balance and fall prevention, and worker’s compensation-related issues. One of the more special techniques available at Advance Rehabilitation is called dry needling. Also known as intramuscular stimulation (IMS), dry needling refers to the utilization of solid filiform needles or hollow-core hypodermic needles for the therapeutic relief of muscle pain. “It’s somewhat similar to acupuncture, but with a different philosophy,” Powell explains.
Takiya Grant, PT, DPT is another board-certified physical therapist on staff at Advance Rehabilitation. “One of the most rewarding things for us is building a relationship with the patient,” Grant says. “We’re right there with them through their recovery.” Adds Powell, “The response has been very good. We provide a high level of care for all our patients.”
The therapists at Advance Rehabilitation take a very hands-on approach to caring for their patients, without the need for expensive or complicated equipment. “We’re not a gym,” says Powell. “We want to help our patients transition out of the need for physical therapy, so we focus on techniques that can easily be reproduced at home.”
