The main goal of orthopedic physical therapy is to manage and treat disorders and injuries relating to the musculoskeletal system. We are here to help you overcome conditions that prevent you from participating in normal daily activities.
Physical therapy is one of the foremost treatment methods toward recovery. It is often adopted before surgery as a non-surgical treatment for various musculoskeletal injuries and diseases. Therapy facilitates improved flexibility, strength, movement, coordination, endurance, balance and pain management by teaching safe stretching, conditioning and strengthening exercise techniques.
The different modalities of physical therapy include exercise, hot or cold packs, ultrasound, electrical nerve stimulation and manual therapy. You will also be educated on activities to avoid- such as twisting movements and excessive weight lifting- and proper body mechanics. Different forms of physical therapy include active, passive and progressive resistance.
We tailor each exercise program to your individual goals.
