Physical Therapy for Orthopedic Injury Rehabilitation
Physical therapy is a common treatment for a number of conditions, among them rehabilitation from orthopedic injury, illness, or post-orthopedic surgeries. Additionally, when you have an injury or illness affecting the musculoskeletal system, such conditions may be treated with physical therapy as a first-line or supporting treatment. Orthopedic injury or illness encompasses everything from minor sprains, broken bones, and arthritis, to pre-and post-operative conditions, such as preparation and recovery from a total knee replacement or ACL reconstruction. Often, after (and even before) any medical procedure, the next step will be to incorporate physical therapy. Like a good surgeon, an experienced PT or DPT can help facilitate a successful recovery.

What is Orthopedic Injury Rehabilitation?
Orthopedic injury rehabilitation consists of intervention by a physical therapist in order to treat a condition that involves the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, and so on, essentially anything that is orthopedic in nature. Orthopedic physical therapy is a sub-specialization within the practice, and so it is beneficial to work with a PT/DPT who has extra training and exposure to orthopedic-specific patients. This can ensure that your therapist comes up with a treatment plan that best works for your specific condition and lead to the most desirable outcome.
