What is Physical Therapy?

Orthopedic physical therapy utilizes manual therapy (hands on treatments), therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular re-education, and patient education to help patients recover from their injuries.  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.

Often times, seeing a physical therapist first can expedite the recovery process and reduce medical costs.  Take a look at this video to see why you should consider physical therapy first.
