WHY DO PEOPLE TURN TO PHYSICAL THERAPY?
In the past, people primarily looked to physical therapy as a means to recover from an injury. This is no-longer the case. We routinely see patients that are looking to . . .
Manage / gain relief from chronic pain
Prepare / condition prior to a procedure (e.g. knee / hip replacement)
Rehabilitate following a procedure
Prevent injury through strengthening & conditioning
Rehabilitate from an injury
Women's health & pelvic floor therapy
Male pelvic floor
HOW DOES RESTORE APPROACH THE EVALUATION PROCESS AND ESTABLISH A PLAN OF CARE?
The team of therapists at Restore take a holistic approach with each patient. Rather than just treat a specific injury or "pain area," our therapists work to discover the root cause of an issue before establishing a customized plan of care.
After treating a recent patient for chronic back pain, he remarked that none of his prior therapists had thought to check the alignment of his pelvis. After working to properly align his pelvis, this patient is enjoying a pain-free life for the first time in 23 years!

Lauren Starace, PT, MSPT, PYT-c, RYT-200
Lauren has been a PT for 12 years. Her interest in movement began at the age of three when she started dance lessons and it never stopped.
She began her career in geriatrics working in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities. After 2 years, Lauren wanted some more adventure in her life and she began traveling PT where she gained experience working throughout the country in NJ, MA, CA, MD, and DC.
Lauren found her true passion in pelvic health, treating women and men with complex pelvic issues for all ages. She furthered her education at Michigan State University School of Osteopathic Medicine learning muscle energy techniques for the spine and visceral mobilization through the Barrel Institute in order to complement the skills needed to treat the lumbopelvic and abdominal region. She has since added to her repertoire with yoga, Lauren starting training through the Professional Yoga Therapy Institute to become a Professional Yoga Therapist. She has found so much enjoyment in combining yoga with PT and is excited to continue to build on this. Lauren feels truly grateful to have found a way to combine her 2 passions, yoga & pelvic PT, and to be able to share this with her patients.

These can all be signs of Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, also known as the temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD). This a disorder of the jaw muscles and nerves caused by injury to the TMJ, which is the joint between your jaw and skull. Our physical therapist Kim Horton, PT will design a program to help reduce your pain, improve the motion of your jaw and improve your quality of life.
