The goal of this physical therapy is to speed up your recovery and improve
your overall function by increasing your range of motion and strengthening
Your physical therapists will work closely with you and your doctor to
create the best possible plan of recovery for you. Your physical therapists
will work hand-in-hand with your orthopedic specialists to provide you
with the most effective treatment plan. The aim is to provide quality
care in many specialized areas for our patients. There are a variety of
diagnoses for which physical therapy is prescribed, including orthopedic
injuries, sports injuries, chronic conditions such as arthritis, and the
rehabilitation of post-operative patients.
Each patient is provided with a physical therapy plan specific to his or
her needs in order to recover fully. This treatment may include:
- Manual “hands-on” therapy
- Joint mobilization
- Stretching and other therapeutic exercises
- Patient education on posture and body mechanics
- Therapeutic exercises
