Orthopedic Physical Therapies
Most orthopedic injuries and conditions respond well to conservative treatment, and physical therapy is typically an important part of the recovery process. In addition to surgical treatments and procedures, SPORT offers on-site physical therapy for numerous orthopedic conditions:

Physical therapists perform very specialized services for their patients that many other healthcare providers cannot. Occupational therapists, for example, have different goals for patients than physical therapists. Physical therapy focuses more on movement, mobility, physical rehabilitation, and improving healing. Occupational therapy, however, focuses more on improving one’s quality of life, restoring independence, and helping with daily living. Occupational therapists can also incorporate speech therapy into their practice, while physical therapists cannot.
What Are the Benefits of Physical Therapy?
The benefits of physical therapy cannot be overstated. When you work with a qualified physical therapist, they can help you improve your mobility and range of motion, manage your pain, avoid surgery, avoid medications, recover from injuries, and reduce the risk of future injuries.
Orthopedic injuries, such as sprains, strains, and even shin splints, often require physical therapy for proper treatment. Even physical trauma from a car accident can lead to physical therapy. It is very effective at achieving many goals that patients have during their rehabilitation.
Patients who struggle with certain types of chronic pain can greatly benefit from physical therapy. This is especially true for patients who want to avoid surgery or pain medications. In many cases, physical therapy can actually be just as effective as the alternative. Knee osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears, and other conditions can be managed with physical therapy alone in many cases.
Physical therapy also plays a significant role in a patient’s rehabilitation after surgery. It helps with strengthening the muscles, tendons, and ligaments surrounding the surgery site. It can also help an injured patient avoid surgery completely if they don’t want to endure a long recovery.
As we mentioned before, physical therapists focus on improving and restoring their patients’ mobility and range of motion. Older patients, in particular, can really benefit from physical therapy. Many older people are considered “at risk” for falls, which makes it important to keep them as mobile as possible. Helping patients get around easier can decrease their chances of a fall, and in turn, an injury.
Athletes also benefit from regular physical therapy exercises. Even if they have no injuries, they can become more efficient athletes by improving their flexibility and strength through physical therapy. A physical therapist can also evaluate the muscle groups that you use in your sport and develop a plan to help you improve your athletic performance.
