Orthopedic Q & A

ADI Rehab

What is orthopedic physical therapy?

After an illness, surgery, or injury, you may need orthopedic physical therapy to help you recover. Orthopedic conditions that respond well to rehabilitation include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Knee and joint pain
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Rotator cuff injuries

The goal of orthopedic physical therapy is to fully rehabilitate your muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments so they function optimally.

What are the benefits of orthopedic physical therapy?

Along with recovery from your illness or injury, an orthopedic physical therapist aims to help maximize movement and minimize pain. Being able to fully move your joints and muscles without pain directly affects the quality of your life.

A physical therapist is expertly trained in identifying and treating orthopedic movement problems. You work under the guidance of your therapist at ADI Rehab to achieve your own personal goals, which may include:

  • Decreasing pain
  • Improving mobility
  • Improving posture
  • Increasing range of motion
  • Building strength and endurance

Orthopedic physical therapy can also help you manage pain without addictive opioids and avoid expensive or invasive surgeries that require a long recovery period.

What techniques are used?

The highly trained team members at ADI Rehab use a variety of treatments for your specific condition. Often a combination of physical therapies is the best approach to gaining a range of motion, flexibility, and easing pain all at the same time. Your physical therapist may recommend a series of exercises along with manual techniques like mobilization, massage, and neuromuscular treatments.

Additionally, low-level light therapy (LLLT) promotes healing for many orthopedic conditions. LLLT can help regenerate tissue, reduce inflammation, decrease pain, assist with muscle fatigue, and prevent injuries. LLLT is often effective for treating the following conditions:

  • Post-surgical pain
  • Injuries such as whiplash that cause intense pain to the head and neck
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Neck and back pain
  • Fibromyalgia pain
  • Arthritis pain

 

If you are recovering from an injury, or want help managing the pain of a chronic orthopedic condition, take the first step toward a better quality of life. Call or schedule an appointment online with the physical therapy specialists at ADI Rehab.
