FAQs on Orthopedic Physical Therapy for Injuries & Post-Op Recovery: 

Why Is Orthopedic Physical Therapy Important? When Would I Need It?

Orthopedic physical therapy is a treatment method for improving the orthopedic system. Through this care method, our team can work with you if your muscles, bones, joints, tendons, or ligaments have been damaged or injured.

Why Might I Need Physical Therapy?

Any time an injury or surgery stops you from going through your day normally, it's important to look into orthopedic physical therapy. Through physical therapy treatments, patients can improve their strength, range of motion, and overall functional mobility, eventually resuming their normal routines.

Why Do People Go To Physical Therapy After Surgery?

Many patients experience health benefits from physical therapy after surgery. For example, an orthopedic physical therapist can help patients adhere to any limitations set by a surgeon, all through a post-operative rehab program. Having a personalized physical therapy plan can also help patients minimize scar tissue, support joint motion and function, and avoid the loss of muscle mass and/or function. Not only does PT speed up recovery, but it helps people regain complete mobility post-op. 

When Else Should I Seek Physical Therapy Services?

  • Fractures

  • Joint, wrist, or lower back pain
