Cranbrook Physical Therapy is a boutique physical therapy clinic in Bloomfield Hills whose highly experienced physical therapists—Anne Tafelski, OMPT, Elizabeth Chomic, MSPT, Emily Kauhn, OMPT, Mark Heitchue, MPT and Polly Landgraf, OMPT—are certified specialists in manual therapy, which is a hands-on therapeutic approach that includes soft-tissue massage, gentle joint mobilization, traction, mechanical realignment, core stabilization, and strengthening. Conveniently located on W. Big Beaver Road, just east of Woodward, we are easily accessible to the Birmingham, Bloomfield, and Troy areas.
Our main goals at Cranbrook Physical Therapy are to eliminate pain and return patients to their full activity levels as soon as possible. Too often, other treatment plans address musculoskeletal injuries as if a few exercises will treat or fix the problem. Our physical therapists have advanced training in correcting the mechanical problems associated with pain and loss of function—we do much more than prescribe a few simple exercises. Post-injury or post-surgery, the patient’s affected area needs to have normal mechanics restored in the soft tissue, connective tissue, and joints. After a full, extensive, mechanical evaluation of the patient, we accomplish that restoration with precise hands-on treatment such as gently and carefully mobilizing the soft tissue, and decompressing, stretching, or unweighting the joint.
Additionally, our clinic employs cutting-edge technology such as light and laser therapy, hot and/or cold multi-frequency electrical stimulation, and ultrasound to quickly diminish muscle spasm, joint pain, and nerve pain, and to accelerate healing. All of these treatments, combined with carefully designed, custom exercise programs, have proven to yield superior results for our patients.
Where many physical therapy clinics put patients through a standard protocol, regardless of the patient’s injury or personal complications, our team devises a customized, thoughtful treatment plan for each individual patient. Other clinics often rotate therapists, and patients have to waste valuable time explaining their case to a different therapist at each visit, but at Cranbrook Physical Therapy, patients are consistently treated by the same therapist who knows their case and can gauge progress and try new approaches as necessary. If you’ve had physical therapy before, you will notice the difference in our approach almost immediately.
Cranbrook Physical Therapy is located at 60 W. Big Beaver Road, Suite 125, just east of Woodward in Bloomfield Hills – convenient to the Birmingham, Bloomfield, and Troy areas. We are in a single-story medical building with ample, free parking right next to our entrance.
