Physical Therapists at Rehabilitation Associates, Inc. treat a variety of orthopedic conditions. Such conditions may result from overuse injuries, trauma, joint replacements, sports related injuries and accidents. Common diagnoses include: rotator cuff injuries, neck and back problems, sprains, and knee conditions.
A comprehensive physical therapy evaluation is the first step in the rehabilitation process. Once the evaluation is complete, the therapist will work with the patient to develop a treatment program to meet the patient’s needs. Physical therapy is aimed at the reduction of pain, if present, increasing joint motion, and increasing functional strength. The rehabilitation process also includes strength and conditioning exercises so that the patient may return to his or her prior activity level. Additionally, interventions may include use of manual techniques and therapeutic modalities like electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and heat/ice as needed to facilitate healing.
