What We Treat

How We Can Help

We believe in treating the whole body rather than treating an injury or medical issue in isolation. That’s why we offer an extensive range of services to help improve movement and function. Check out our What We Treat page to find out more.

Chronic Pain

We use a combination of biomechanical, respiratory, and neurological functional exercises to correct asymetrical patterns and limitations, this can reduce the severity and complexity of chronically injured individuals. We also complement these exercises with manual therapy and education on healthy habits that will promote a healing environment.

Generalized Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is often recommended for a wide variety of conditions, including post-operatively, chronic pain, acute injuries, and sports rehabilitation.

Joint and Surgical Rehab

We are an excellent provider of rehab following a variety of orthopedic surgical interventions; these include ACL reconstructions, rotator cuff repairs, total shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle replacements, as well as countless other surgeries that require rehabilitation.

Nike Golf Performance

Nike Golf Performance focuses on assessing the physical restrictions and biomechanical faults that cause poor swing mechanics, and addressing these to allow golfers to realize their maximum potential.

Running and Gait Analysis

Using a combination of techniques of Postural Restoration and Applied Functional Science, we will determine your dysfunctions, develop a plan to improve your running/walking, and work to return you to a level that maximizes performance and prevention of injuries.

Sports Medicine

We understand the value of healthy living, and sometimes injuries can occur as a result of participating in healthy activities. We work with a number of area athletic clubs including CrossFit, Pilates & yoga studios, and sports training facilities.

Work Injury

Luke Carlson Physical Therapy has relationships with numerous companies in the Ankeny and Des Moines area to offer relief for work-related injuries.
