Orthopedic Physical Therapy
Our physical therapists are orthopedic specialists and experts in evaluating, treating and managing patients with orthopedic conditions.
Some of these conditions include sprains, strains, tendonitis, arthritis, ligament tears, muscle tears, joint/muscle/tendon inflammations, post-fracture injury, joint stiffness, joint pain, rotator cuff repair, ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) reconstruction, and post-arthroscopic and total joint replacement surgeries. You can access these Orthopedic services in all of our physical therapy clinics.
What makes orthopedic physical therapy different?
Like physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons spend some of their time diagnosing injuries or conditions of the musculoskeletal system. However, instead of relying primarily on exercise regimens, orthopedic surgeons perform operations to restore function to patients.
Many orthopedic surgeons specialize in operating on specific parts of the musculoskeletal system, such as the spine, hips or shoulders. The focus of orthopedic physical therapy is to help your injury heal properly and improve your strength, range of motion, and overall functional mobility.
