Orthopedic physical therapists diagnose, manage, and treat disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system as well as rehabilitate patients post orthopedic surgery. This specialty of physical therapy is most often found in the out-patient clinical setting.
Orthopedic therapists are trained in the treatment of post operative joints, acute sub acute and chronic injuries, sports injuries and degenerative conditions. Manual therapy including joint and soft tissue mobilizations, myofascial release and massage, strength training and neuromuscular training are some of the therapies used for our orthopedic patients. Treatment modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation and heat and cold treatments are also used to promote recovery.
Those who have suffered injury or disease affecting the muscles, bones, ligaments, or tendons of the body will benefit from an assessment by our physical therapists specialized in orthopedics.
