Orthopedic Physical Therapy assists patients in recovery from orthopedic and musculoskeletal conditions resulting from accident or injury, medical conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis, and those recovering from surgery. Treatment for orthopedic conditions may include manual therapy, heat and cold therapy, electrical stimulation, and therapeutic exercise to improve strength, flexibility, and function.
Sports Physical Therapy is available for patients who have experienced injuries that prevent them from returning to their prior level of athletic function. Sports physical therapy focuses on the treatment of the current injury—enabling the patient to safely resume activities—and the prevention of future injuries.
Neurological physical therapy benefits patients who have an injury or disease that affects the nervous system, such as a stroke, brain or spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease. Neurological diseases and disorders can affect movement and balance, making patients vulnerable to injury and making daily tasks difficult. Therapy for neurological conditions may include balance, coordination, and flexibility training and exercise programs to improve function and strength; it may also help teach patients movement strategies and equipment needs in adjusting to their challenges.
