Areas of Study/Common Diagnoses

Those who have sustained an injury or disease affecting the muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, and nerves of the body will benefit from an assessment by an Orthopedic Physical Therapist. As Orthopedic Physical Therapists, our staff diagnoses, manages, and treats disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system as well as rehabilitates patients post orthopedic surgery. We specialize in acute sports injuries, low back pain, cervicalgia, shoulder dysfunction and foot and ankle pathology. Our staff utilizes Manual Therapy Techniques including mobilization and manipulation in conjunction with functional graded therapeutic exercises to get patients and clients back on track.
