Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation-Greater Heights is making it easier than ever to get back to daily living and sports activities with the opening of a new stand-alone, outpatient facility. Slated to open on March 13, this 5,000-square-foot clinic features advanced technology and exceptional patient care, along with free, convenient, curbside parking.
Moving to 300 North Loop West, Suite 300, between Shepherd Drive and Yale Street, Memorial Herman Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation — Greater Heights will be located just two exits east of Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital. Patients will continue to receive high-level treatment from certified physical and occupational therapists who are exceptionally welltrained and eager to help patients reach their goals.
“Our patients will keep benefiting from our outstanding staff that includes several therapists who have been with us for more than 20 years,” said Donnita Burrell, PT, ATC, LAT, clinic manager. “In addition to convenient parking, they’ll enjoy an intimate, light-filled interior space, new technology and three private rooms for treatment and evaluation.”
Therapies Help Patients Resume Activities
Memorial Hermann physical therapists take great pride in helping their patients correct and prevent short- or long-term movement problems that affect their ability to perform everyday activities. Whether patients are recovering from surgery, a sports injury or managing chronic pain, physical therapy usually includes a combination of exercise, strength training, gait training, manual therapy techniques and education to promote optimum health and functioning.
Occupational therapists, including a certified hand therapist, help patients gain greater movement and range of motion. Whether treating carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, trauma to the hand, wrist and/or forearm, Memorial Hermann therapists use proven treatment techniques such as manual therapy, soft-tissue mobilizations, splint fabrication, myofascial release and more.
Specialized Treatments for Back, Neck and Athletic Injuries
Also available at Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation — Greater Heights, is the McKenzie Method, a reliable assessment process intended for all musculoskeletal problems, including pain in the back, neck and extremities. This treatment uses the body’s potential to repair itself. Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation is one of the few physical therapy programs in the Greater Houston area employing the McKenzie Method.
The new clinic continues to offer sport-specific rehabilitation under the guidance of a licensed physical therapist-athletic trainer. In addition to helping athletes return to their sport after injury or surgery, this specialized rehabilitation can improve an athlete’s performance and prevent re-injury. For example, multi-directional agility training improves quickness, while plyometrics promote proper jumping and landing techniques to help athletes gain explosive power.
