Dr. Solomon Normatov
As a lifelong athlete, I’ve experienced a wide array of sports-related injuries. In fact, my interest in this profession was sparked at just eighteen years-old, when I received physical therapy for a shoulder injury incurred while playing football. Later, I achieved my Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) from the University of the Sciences of Philadelphia.
I employ a holistic, evidence-based approach to my treatment, taking a full assessment of your status and needs to design the perfect plan for your body and circumstances. I use research-driven methods to help you achieve your physical therapy goals. I am detail-oriented, innovative, highly knowledgeable in biomechanics, and a fantastic problem-solver. I operate on three principles: honesty, perseverance, and resilience.
The most rewarding part of my job is helping others reclaim their health and wellness. I love to use my experience and background to support and guide my patients as they commit to their recovery. And I can’t wait to facilitate this journey for you, bestowing upon you the right exercises and information to carry you to success!
Schedule An Appointment For Your Achilles Tendinitis Injury
If you’ve seen your physician, he/she may have ordered an x-ray to see if there may be any other type of injury. An MRI is a diagnostic tool that uses strong magnets and radio waves to visualize structures of the calf muscle and Achilles tendon. This test allows the physician to determine the extent of the injury with more detail than an X-ray. The quality of the images depends on the equipment used to create them.
Physical therapy for Achilles Tendon injuries has been scientifically proven to help patients recover from Achilles tendinitis avoiding more invasive treatment methods. During the first stage of treatment, your therapist will focus on reducing pain and restoring the range of motion to your ankle joint. Your therapist will also prescribe exercises that improve flexibility and mobility that you can do at home in between treatment sessions. Once your pain levels improve, a strengthening program; specifically “eccentric” strengthening involving all of the ankle and lower leg muscles will follow. You may also be recommend an orthotic device, that can be placed in your shoe in order to relieve some pain and tension.
