Physical therapy services play an important role in the management of musculoskeletal injuries. Early intervention with therapy has been shown to reduce the time needed to restore a patient's form, strength, range of motion, and overall function following a musculoskeletal injury. Injuries can be as a result of a work injury, sports or exercise participation, or can just occur due to changes to our bodies due to aging.
Our Physical Therapy approach helps improve impaired physical function, relieve and control pain, and prevent further disability. In addition, we feature an active educational program to help prevent the occurrence of future injuries.
