Why We Are Different
It’s likely that you know someone who has had physical therapy or perhaps you have experienced it for yourself. But this experience will not be like that experience.
Inspirit Therapy Associates offers more than traditional physical therapy. We use several advanced physical therapy methods and the latest technology as well as nutrition education and lifestyle management training to help you reduce pain and improve function.
Therapeutic Exercises are specialized, specific physical movements or activities intended to decrease pain, improve movement, increase activities and participation, reduce risk of injury or falls, optimize overall health, and enhance fitness and well-being. Therapeutic Exercise may include range of motion exercises and soft tissue stretching; balance and proprioception exercises; relaxation exercises; and strength, power, and endurance exercises.
Massage therapy is used to treat several conditions. It relaxes muscles and decreases anxiety. It can relieve back pain and pain from tension headaches and provide improvement in range of motion in joints. Massage has been proven to reduce muscle spasm and cramps. Inspirit Therapy Associates in Green Bay, WI, offers the following types of massage:
- Swedish Massage: promotes relaxation and eases muscle tension
- Deep Tissue Massage: focused on knotted muscles or points of chronic tension and pain
- Prenatal Massage: relief of discomforts related to pregnancy
- Hot Stone Massage: hot stones provide heat that will penetrate deep muscles

Integrative Dry Needling
Dry needling itself does not treat any
Custom orthotics are inserts for your shoes that are created specifically to fit your foot. Your physical therapist will evaluate how you walk, examine your feet, discuss your concerns and complaints, and create a model of your foot with measurements to be used in creation of the orthotic.
Orthotics may be used to treat plantar fasciitis (heel spurs), bursitis, tendonitis, and any foot, ankle or heel pain. Our orthotics are cost-efficient and we will monitor the effectiveness of their use in relieving your symptoms.
POTS Management Program
POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) is a form of Dysautonomia that causes rapid heart rate and an inability to tolerate being upright. Dysautonomia is a dysfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System – the part of your nervous system that is responsible for everything that happens “automatically” – such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, temperature and breathing.
At Inspirit, we recognize that each person is individual and has different symptoms, responding to treatment differently. Using a team approach, we feel it is extremely important to “meet you where you are at”. Listening to your journey and finding out what the biggest areas of challenge are and developing a program that works for you. In our sessions, we address the following pillars:
- Movement/Exercise: Exercise training has been proven to expand blood volume as well as increase cardiac muscle mass and heart size. These in turn have been associated with improvement of symptoms.
- Hydration and Nutrition: Increased fluid intake and a salty diet are a very important area of focus and can help with decreasing lightheadedness and dizziness. But, it doesn’t end there. We will discuss general nutrition and possible use of supplements.
- Lifestyle: Here we discuss various strategies, education and emotional
support to help manage your daily activities and routines.
- Sleep: Poor sleep quality can be a huge contributing factor to increased symptoms. We will talk about different options such as sleep postures, bed positioning and relaxation techniques.
Physical therapy is a cost effective and non-invasive treatment option for infertility. Physical therapy has been proven to help reduce mechanical causes of infertility such as fascial adhesions and painful intercourse through various manual therapy techniques and self- management strategies. At Inspirit, our therapists also assist in addressing the emotional roadblocks associated with infertility and are here to address your mental needs as well as physical.
Pregnancy & Postpartum Rehabilitation Program
Inspirit Therapy’s pregnancy and postpartum rehabilitation program offers comprehensive prenatal and postnatal care to individuals at any point during their motherhood journey. Research shows that exercise improves the health and well-being of both mother and child during pregnancy and can improve delivery outcomes and speed up postpartum recovery, but it can be intimidating to know where to start. It can also be confusing to know which symptoms are normal and which are not during pregnancy and postpartum. That’s why the Inspirit team is here to help you navigate this process. Our goals are to keep you moving during pregnancy, optimize a healthy delivery experience, speed up recovery postpartum, and address any deficits that may remain even years following your birth experience.
Cancer Rehabilitation Program
Cancer rehabilitation is an individualized program to aid
people after diagnosis of any type of cancer, at any stage. Common medical treatments for cancer include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. These treatments may be necessary to shrink or eliminate the tumor, but they may result in fatigue, weakness, lymphedema, poor range of motion, among other side effects. Cancer rehab will focus on 3 pillars of rehabilitation: cardiovascular strength,
musculoskeletal strength, and flexibility. This program will help restore your energy, improve your comfort, and maximize your function!
Lymphedema is a chronic swelling that can occur in arms, legs, and/or your trunk. Lymphatic decongestive therapy will educate you in fluid mobilization techniques, wrapping or compression wear, and movement patterns that will reduce the girth of your affected areas making it more comfortable to fit into your clothing, reduce risk of infections, and improve your overall mobility.
