Orthopaedic Physical Therapy

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.

Who We Serve

We treat people of all ages and stages with orthopaedic ailments. Our youngest patients start around 5 years old and the oldest are well into their 90s! Whether you just had surgery or have no idea why you’re in pain, we investigate the potential causes and address the symptoms. We also believe prevention is highly underutilized. Why wait until your pain turns into something serious? Having a yearly assessment by a Doctor of Physical Therapy can prevent dysfunction down the road and helps keep you doing what you love to do.
