Physical Therapy Q & A

What is physical therapy?

The goal of physical therapy is to help you return to an active lifestyle, whether that consists of competitive athletics, work, and hobbies, or simply going through your day without pain. Physical therapy may also help prevent mobility loss before it occurs.

The physical therapy team at Active Joints Orthopedics helps you improve the strength and range of motion in different parts of your body, including the limbs, bands, back, and neck.

Why would I need physical therapy?

Physical therapy plays a key role in rehabilitation from orthopedic injuries and conditions that affect your movement or ability to function. The team at Active Joints Orthopedics may recommend physical therapy if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Low back pain
  • Spine disorders
  • Joint pain and stiffness
  • Sports injuries
  • Post-surgical pain

In addition to helping you regain mobility and recover strength after an injury, the physical therapy team teaches you how to prevent future injuries.

What kind of services do physical therapists offer?

The physical therapy team at Active Joints Orthopedics tailors your treatment plan to your specific needs and goals. Depending on your condition, services may include:

  • Manual manipulation
  • Massage therapy
  • Heat and cold therapy
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Therapeutic exercises

They also teach you exercises you can perform at home, with or without assistive devices, to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance.

What should I expect from a physical therapy visit?

At your first visit, your physical therapist conducts a thorough evaluation. They carefully assess your condition, listen to your personal goals, and discuss your best options for treatment. Then, they design an individualized physical therapy program tailored to your specific needs.

The on-site physical therapy department at Active Joints Orthopedics offers the convenience of same-day appointments with your doctor and physical therapist. This also allows your doctor to closely monitor your progress and easily communicate with the physical therapy team.
