When you need orthopedic physical therapy and rehabilitation, we’re here for you. Our rehab teams work with every population, from babies in neonatal intensive care units to 105-year-old centenarians. Our specialists can help you recover from all kinds of issues, from joint pain and concussions to sports injuries and more.
Whether you’ve just had surgery or are hoping to avoid surgery altogether, physical rehabilitation can help. Also called orthopedic physical therapy and orthopedic rehab, physical therapy lets you gain or regain strength, flexibility and range of motion. It can be used to help you recover from things like:
Orthopedic rehab can help you boost muscle strength, improve your form so you can stay active and find ways to cope with pain, tight muscles and chronic inflammation. Physical therapy can also help you manage issues like post-surgical swelling.
Orthopedic physical therapy isn’t a substitute for surgery. If you have a dislocated or severely damaged joint, surgery may be your best option. But therapy can help you get back to the things you love faster after a surgical procedure.
At your first appointment, your physical therapist will take the time to get to know you and understand how any treatments you’ve had are impacting you. Together, you’ll discuss things like your medical history, your pain intensity and how your daily life has been affected.
Like other physical therapy, orthopedic physical therapy usually takes place a few times a week over the course of several weeks. Your therapist will create exercises for you based on your specific injury and goals. By doing carefully designed exercises with a physical therapist, you can help speed your recovery from an injury or orthopedic surgery.
