What is Orthopedic Physical Therapy?
The scope of the work carried out by orthopedic physical therapists is broad by nature. In simple terms, orthopedic physical therapy involves the treatment of ailments, injuries, and conditions affecting your musculoskeletal system – for clarity, that includes your bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and even your connective tissue. As you can surely imagine, when these various different parts of your body are playing up, it can be difficult to do even the most basic physical activity. We offer orthopedic physical therapy to get you moving back in a smoother, more comfortable fashion.
Evaluations and Diagnoses
Before we begin any of the physical work required to get you back on track, it’s important to first understand what’s going on with your body, and how it’s affecting your day to day life. Taking stock of your initial condition – in terms of your range of motion, balance and strength, posture, and pain levels – can also help us to track your progress. This is the case regardless of whether you’re trying to recover from an injury, or because you’re dealing with a degenerative condition – we’re equipped to help you with these processes either way.
Recovery and Rehabilitation
Orthopedic physical therapy is useful for many different situations, and we’re happy to help with whatever circumstances you’re currently trying to manage. In the past, we’ve assisted patients with their recovery from surgeries, either due to health conditions or because of acute injuries, and we’re also more than capable of assisting people with managing chronic injuries – which can have a significant detrimental effect on your day to day life. The ways in which orthopedic physical therapy can transform your quality of life will be a surprise to some people, but the benefits are proven.
Range of Treatments
There are many different techniques used in orthopedic physical therapy, and exactly what you’ll experience with our team is going to depend on your specific situation. While exercise therapy is pretty much a given, hot and cold therapy might also be used, and the same is true of hydrotherapy, soft tissue manipulation, e-stim therapy, and so much more. We have a breadth of knowledge that means we’ll always find the best treatment course for your unique situation.
