What is Orthopedic Treatment?
Orthopedics is a medical specialty that works to address dysfunction within the musculoskeletal system. It focuses on the diagnosis, correction, prevention, and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and skin that make up the musculoskeletal system.
A general orthopedic physical therapist has a whole-body approach, which helps make connections between orthopedic conditions in various parts of the body. Orthopedists see patients of all ages, from children with spine deformities, to young athletes who are in need of arthroscopic surgery, and to older individuals who suffer from arthritis.
Orthopedic Diagnosis and Effective Treatment
At IMPACT Physical Therapy, our highly skilled physical therapists are trained to diagnose, treat, and help prevent future injuries to the musculoskeletal system. Diagnoses such as muscle sprains and strains, joint pain, and neck and back pain all fall under the category of general orthopedics.
After an extensive evaluation, our physical therapists will create an individualized treatment plan to ensure our patients are on the right path to recovery. Our team will use state-of-the-art equipment and direct inspection of the body to ensure we use the proper treatment to care for the individual.
