Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy: Your First Choice

Physical Therapy is a powerful form of treatment:

We are primarily an Outpatient Orthopedic Clinic. We see a variety of patients from neck, back, knee, hip, and balance issues. We see patients who are getting ready for surgery, those that are recovering from surgery, and those trying to avoid surgery. It can help alleviate pain for people with long-standing issues.

It has benefits that help you avoid future pain:

Physical therapy programs include exercises that help build strength, which can help you avoid injury over the long term.

You can get relief fast:

You don’t have to wait in pain for an appointment: you can usually see a physical therapist within 48 hours of calling.

Physical therapy is a great first-line treatment for most muscle and joint problems. Clinically proven to reduce pain and dysfunction, physical therapy also saves you time and money too.
Although other kinds of practitioners will offer some of these treatments as “physical therapy,” it’s important for you to know that physical therapy can only be provided by qualified and licensed physical therapists.

The cornerstones of physical therapy treatment are:

  • Patient Education
  • Therapeutic Exercise
  • Functional Training
  • Hands-on Manual Therapy

Depending on the particular needs of a patient, physical therapists may also “mobilize” or “manipulate” a joint (that is, perform certain types of movements at the end of your range of motion) or perform certain soft tissue techniques to muscles to promote proper movement and function.
