Physical therapy procedures are designed to normalize body movement and structure through stretching, strengthening and balancing muscle and ligaments. Typically if you report to you primary care MD/DO with a musculoskeletal injury you might leave the office with a prescription for medication and/or a prescription for four to six weeks of physical therapy. The goal of the physical therapy is to reduce pain, repair the injured region, and strengthen the area to avoid a future injury.
Because we have physicians on-site, - NO PHYSICAL THERAPY PRESCRIPTION IS NECESSARY - this allows us to cut one step out of your quest to get help for your injury. We can diagnose your injury and set up a rehabilitation program on the same day. Many of our patients will come to us first with their aches and pains because they know we are the doctors who can help immediately.
Our doctors and staff have years of rehabilitation experience and are very capable of handling the most acute patients. Some of our common rehabilitation patients are: spinal disc bulges and herniations, pre/post surgery rehab (knee, ankle, elbow, carpal tunnel), sprains/strains, running injuries, sports related injuries, slip and fall patients, work related injuries, and motor vehicle accidents.
