What is Orthopedic Physical Therapy?

Whether you’ve just had surgery or are hoping to avoid surgery altogether, physical therapy can help. Physical therapy assists in gain or regain strength, flexibility and range of motion. It can be used to help you recover from things like: 

  • Joint replacement surgery 

  • Carpal tunnel surgery 

  • Arthritis 

  • Tendonitis 

  • Chronic neck or back pain  

  • Deconditioning  

  • And more 

What to Expect at Your First Appointment

At your first appointment, your physical therapist will take the time evaluate and get to know you. Your physical therapist will review your medical history and together help determine a plan for recovery.  Physical therapy usually takes place a few times a week over the course of several weeks. Your therapist will create exercises for you based on your specific injury and goals. By doing carefully designed exercises with a physical therapist, you can help speed your recovery from an injury or orthopedic surgery.
