Types of Orthopedic Physical Therapy Treatment

Physical therapy is a form of healthcare treatment designed to increase range of motion, ease pain and discomfort, build strength, and regain as much physical function as possible. Orthopedic medicine is anything pertaining to the musculoskeletal system, and our physical therapy programs in this area provide effective relief for injuries, chronic conditions, and post-surgical pain. Our team uses various methods to achieve this. Every patient's situation is unique and may include one or a combination of these orthopedic physical therapy methods in their program.

  • Manual Therapy – This hands-on style includes methods such as massaging, stretching movements, and strengthening by manipulating the muscles and tissues in the area that needs to heal.
  • Heat & Cold Packs – We alternate the use of heat and cold packs on the area for different effects. The heat helps to reduce pain and discomfort, while cold temperatures minimize inflammation.
  • Exercises – Exercises are introduced to help the musculoskeletal system of the injured area rebuild strength for control and function. This is a critical part of any physical rehab program, and patients will be monitored closely to ensure they're not in danger of aggravating an injury.
  • Electrical Stimulation – This is a safe form of therapy where electrodes are attached to the skin in the area of the injury to stimulate the muscles, reducing pain and improving functionality.

 

Learn About the Benefits of Orthopedic Physical Therapy

When patients hear the term physical therapy, it is common to relate it to surgery. However, orthopedic physical therapy exercises and treatments are excellent programs to treat chronic pain issues and injuries that don't require surgery. The benefits of treatment include:

  • Improved mobility – Whatever brings you to physical therapy, it's likely due to pain and discomfort and a diminished range of motion. Our treatment will slowly and gradually expand the range of motion and improve mobility without causing further injury.
  • Avoid surgery – If you have an injury or a chronic pain condition, the right physical therapy exercises can help you heal without the need for invasive surgery.
  • Improved cardiovascular health – Physical therapy keeps you moving and increases blood flow which is always good for cardiovascular health.
  • Manage pain – Patients who deal with chronic pain issues or those recovering from surgery will experience pain. Using therapeutic exercises to restore orthopedic function improves the health of the tissues, tendons, and joints to alleviate pain and build strength.
