In orthopedic physical therapy, the physical therapist is concerned most with the impairments and dysfunctions that affect the musculoskeletal system, including the muscle, the joints, the ligaments and the connective tissue.
Impairments, dysfunction syndromes and pain in this system can be the results of injury or trauma. They often develop because of abnormal posture or movement patterns, affecting the ability of the individual to walk, to work, or to be productive and interact with others.
In our clinic, we provide expertise in the evaluations and interventions, which include treatment for conditions affecting the vertebral column and the joints - shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle, using physical agents, manual techniques and procedures, and mainly therapeutic exercises and functional training. We maintain close contact with the referring physician or source, providing feedback and searching for information in order to carry out the best outcome for the patient.
