Orthopedic Injury Treatment

Treatment of orthopedic physical therapy conditions, including but not limited to sprains, strains, fractures, workplace ergonomics, repetitive postural injury, insidious onset pain, and chronic pain.

The Doctors of Physical Therapy at Accelerate Physical Therapy specialize in the evaluation and treatment of any and all orthopedic related injuries. Orthopedic injuries refer to anything affecting the musculoskeletal system (i.e. muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, bones, as well as nerves as they interface through each of these structures). Sports specific injuries, work related injuries, and injuries caused by a motor vehicle accident fall under the orthopedic umbrella. Pre and post-operative care is intended to improve mobility, muscle performance, and motor control in individuals with surgical intervention to alleviate pain.

Understanding Orthopedic Physical Therapy

The goal of orthopedic physical therapy is to provide personalized and comprehensive care. This involves initial assessment and evaluation to identify the specific condition and customize an appropriate treatment plan. Physical therapists will then employ a combination of techniques, including manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, movement analysis, neuromuscular re-education and modalities such as heat, cold, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation.

Additionally, orthopedic physical therapy often includes patient education to promote self-management and prevent future injuries. Patients are taught proper body mechanics, posture correction, exercise techniques, and lifestyle modifications to optimize their recovery and long-term wellness.

Individualized treatment programs will vary based on the patient’s unique needs and conditions. Orthopedic PTs may work in partnership with other healthcare professionals, such as orthopedic surgeons, to ensure comprehensive and coordinated care.

Physical therapy plays a crucial role in helping patients regain function, alleviate pain, and improve their overall musculoskeletal health. By addressing the root cause of the condition and providing effective treatment, orthopedic physical therapists strive to help individuals return to their daily activities, sports, and hobbies with improved strength, mobility, and confidence.

The Benefits of Orthopedic Physical Therapy

The benefits of orthopedic physical therapy are numerous and can greatly improve your quality of life. One of the main benefits is pain reduction. Through targeted exercises and manual therapy techniques, orthopedic PT can help alleviate pain caused by musculoskeletal conditions or injuries.

Another benefit is improved mobility and range of motion. Through the use of specific exercises and stretches, physical therapy can help you regain strength and flexibility in affected areas, allowing you to move more freely and comfortably.

Orthopedic PT can also help prevent future injuries. By teaching you proper body mechanics and posture, your therapist can help you develop healthy movement patterns and reduce the risk of future pain or injury.

Additionally, orthopedic physical therapy can improve your overall functional ability. By addressing and treating the underlying causes of your pain or injury, you can regain the ability to perform daily activities, such as walking, climbing stairs, or lifting objects, with ease.
