What is Orthopaedic Physical Therapy?
Orthopaedic Physical Therapy (also spelled Orthopedic or called Sports Medicine Physical Therapy) is rehabilitation centered around the neuromusculoskeletal system. This specialty explores the relationships amongst the muscles, bones, nerves, ligaments, tendons, joints and other types of connective tissue. Our treatments include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, and patient education. Manual therapy consists of skilled hands-on mobilization of problematic soft tissue and joints. Therapeutic exercise aims to correct muscular weakness or imbalances to provide optimal stability and movement. Education helps patients understand their condition(s) and empowers them to take control of their rehabilitation.
