Orthopedic Physical Therapy
Orthopedic Physical Therapy is focused on the treatment of bone, tendon, muscle, ligament, and joint issues. Our therapists have many years of experience treating orthopedic conditions. Orthopedic Physical Therapy is a non-invasive and very successful option for joint sprains, strains, arthritic conditions, and herniated discs in the spine. Surgery can often be avoided if physical therapy is utilized first for many orthopedic conditions.
We have clinicians on staff who are Orthopedic Clinical Specialists as well as McKenzie Certifieid clinicians (Cert MDT). These physical therapists are trained to help you manage your pain by restoring mobility, strength, and overall function.
What is an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS)?
This is a speciality earned through the APTA. An extensive exam regarding orthopedic PT must be successfully completed. We have two Orthopedic Clinical Specialists (OCS) on staff.
What is the McKenzie approach?
We have found the McKenzie approach to the spine and extremities to be very useful in our daily practice. This is a mechanical evaluation and treatment of the spine or extremities that is noninvasive. Many patients respond with pain reduction during their first day. This approach is patient centered and focuses on teaching the patient how to minimize and eliminate their pain. We have 3 physical therapists who are certified (Cert MDT) through the McKenzie Institute.
Please visit The McKenzie Institute for further information on the McKenzie approach.
