People who have undergone any surgery that may hamper their mobility may receive a recommendation from their doctor to receive orthopedic therapy. In addition, a person who has experienced any injuries or damages to the musculoskeletal system also can get this treatment. The musculoskeletal system involves the tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, nerves, discs, bones, and other parts of the body that provide movement.
People suffer from a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders. Some disorders may include tendonitis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and back pain. Other conditions that respond well to orthopedic physical therapy include scoliosis, ankle sprains, and several arthritis issues.
The staff at ProKinectics Physical Therapy will examine a patient's physical problems and medical history to develop a treatment plan that suits their specific needs. We involve the patient with all rehabilitation and therapy treatment planning, so they remain informed about the types of therapy they receive and how it is designed to offer them the right amount of care. A patient may be given pain-relieving modalities, manual treatments, and individualized exercise regimens designed to safely restore their bodies to their physical prowess.
Our treatments target the body's posture and alignment to discover where the pain is originating so we can help relieve the issues while restoring movement and mobility. This hands-on approach will motivate the body to heal quickly, as it helps to end the patient's chronic pain symptoms. In addition, patients also obtain injury prevention educational materials and resources that help to further explain the problems that affect them while providing guidance on how a person can avoid re-injuring themselves. They will have the vital tips and advice so they can remain healthy during their lives.
