Making Life’s Ride Easier

Custom Foot Orthotics

Struggling with foot pain or constant injuries? You may benefit from custom orthotics.

The process for making custom orthotics at Tailwind PT is as unique as the patient’s mechanics. There is no such thing as a “standard custom orthotic.”

NOT YOUR AVERAGE PT CLINIC:

World Class Facilities

Tailwind is a one-of-a-kind clinic with spacious private treatment rooms and a professional yet relaxed atmosphere.

Our state-of-the-art equipment includes:

  • HYDROWORX hydrotherapy pool
  • underwater treadmill
  • spacious, private rooms

Aquatic Therapy

Our underwater treadmill is used to supplement physical therapy and fitness as it offers a low-impact workout.

Benefits include:

  • Quicker recovery due to water’s natural hydrostatic pressure, reducing swelling & inflammation

  • Buoyancy of the water allows you to improve cardiovascular fitness levels w/out the pounding & shock on joints, tendons or muscles

  • Builds more muscle mass in shorter amount of time, due to the increased energy expenditure per stride

  • Mentally & psychologically water is refreshing, calming & soothing leaving you rejuvenated & relaxed even after a hard workout.

Professional Bike Fitting

Tailwind Physical Therapy focuses on optimizing the relationship between your body and your bike through the implementation of our custom bike fit program. Our unique approach means that we specifically evaluate your bike and body. Through altering various bike parts, and providing specific exercises or stretches, we will work to perfect your overall efficiency on the bike. Our comprehensive approach begins with a thorough assessment of you riding your bike from the front, back, and side, and progresses towards addressing your individualized needs based on how your physique matches your bicycle. This service is for both new and current Tailwind patients. Some Bike Fittings may be covered by insurance.

A custom bike fit can provide you with:

  • INCREASED POWER OUTPUT
  • ENHANCED AERODYNAMICS
  • IMPROVED COMFORT
  • DECREASED PAIN
