What to Expect from Orthopedic Physical Therapy

During your initial evaluation, our physical therapist will take a detailed history of your condition and perform a physical examination.This will help them develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific needs and goals.

Your treatment plan may include a variety of interventions, such as:

  • Manual therapy: This involves hands on techniques such as massage, joint mobilizations and manipulations.
  • Therapeutic exercise: This involves exercises designed to improve your strength, flexibility and balance.
  • Education: We will provide you with education about your condition and how to manage it at home.

What Is Manual Therapy?

As mentioned, there are many modalities when it comes to physical therapy, and manual therapy is the most hands-on approach. Manual therapy involves the manipulation of muscles, joints, and nerves to help relieve pain and promote healing. Our licensed physical therapists use manual therapy to treat many injuries, but some of the most common are:

  • Tight hip
  • Stiff neck
  • Shoulder pain
  • And other tightness in the body that may be limiting your mobility

Is Manual Therapy the
Same as a Massage?

While they may seem similar, getting a massage versus seeking out manual therapy are two vastly different things. Massage therapy usually aims to relax the body and mind, while manual therapy aims to heal injury and reduce pain in specific areas of the body. Manual therapy is a more targeted approach.

Postural Training in Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Sciatica, neck pain, back pain, an improper gait, and a slew of other symptoms could be due to being out of alignment. Postural training focus on performing exercises that treat muscular imbalances to help improve posture. When your posture is off, it can affect the strength and performance of your muscles, leaving you weaker or feeling pain on one side of your body.

A Look into Postural Therapy Appointments

If you are feeling worried or nervous about what postural training entails, fear not. Postural training appointments usually begin with a series of assessments, followed by exercises. We typically:

  • Used specialized technology to help us determine which of your joints are out of alignment
  • Observe your gait to see if something needs to be adjusted
  • Implement a series of mobility tests to help determine severity
  • Work on performing exercises that help rebuild strength and flexibility to improve posture

Is Orthopedic Rehabilitation Right for You?

Generally, people tend to minimize the amount of pain or discomfort that they suffer each day until it finally catches up to them. While it may seem easy to ignore or avoid general discomfort in your body, it almost always leads to injury or more sever pain if it is not dealt with. 

Orthopedic rehabilitation focuses on relieving that small pain and discomfort before it turns into a bigger problem. We offer a wide range of orthopedic services from joint pain treatment, pelvic therapy, shoulder therapy, knee pain treatment, to wrist pain treatment and much more. Your body is made for movement, so get back to feeling mobile with 208 Physical Therapy.
