Orthopedic and sports physical therapy help you recover from surgery and return to your sport and daily functions. Our orthopedic and sports physical therapists create a unique treatment plan for each patient.
Orthopedic physical therapy focuses on restoring someone’s range of motion, balance, and mobility after a musculoskeletal injury.
What Is Sports Physical Therapy?
Sports physical therapy is similar to orthopedic physical therapy, but sports physical therapists work with athletes or active individuals to treat their injuries and optimize their athletic performance by decreasing their chances of future injuries.
Why Might I Need Orthopedic or Sports Physical Therapy?
You may benefit from orthopedic and sports physical therapy if you experience
Back pain and headaches
Foot & ankle pain
Ligament sprains & muscle strains
Fractures & joint dislocations
Rotator cuff & shoulder injuries
Tendonitis & bursitis
You may be referred to a sports physical therapist if you are an athlete or live an active lifestyle.
What to Expect with Orthopedic and Sports Therapy?
After evaluation, your individual treatment plan might include
Corrective exercises: With specific exercises, your therapist can help correct any movement that may lead to future injuries.
Manual techniques: Your therapist will help you move your joints and stretch your muscles to improve mobility and strength.
Therapeutic modalities: Forms of therapy such as dry needling, electrical stimulation, and low-level laser therapy can reduce pain and aid in your recovery.
In addition to your physical therapy visits, a home exercise program is often prescribed to complete outside of formal therapy sessions.
