Physical therapy speeds recovery for most athletic injuries. By evaluating the physical strengths and weaknesses of each patient, our physical therapists formulate a plan for your recovery. With a physician referral, your therapist will work with you to overcome conditions such as arthritis, an ankle sprain, a wrist fracture or a strained back.
When you complete treatment, your physical therapist will give you instructions to maintain your health through appropriate independent exercises at home or the gym. For many patients, a physical therapy program can be completed with a couple visits a week for four to six weeks.
