Whether preventing or rehabilitating an injury or other physical condition, physical therapy plays an important part in maximizing a patient’s long-term health. The specialized physical therapists at OrthoCarolina help patients of all ages improve movement and manage pain through exercise, massage, stretching and other techniques.
Therapists examine each patient and work with them to create an individualized treatment plan to practice in the clinic and at home. By teaching individuals how manage their own conditions and injuries, our PTs empower their patients to continue healing outside of the clinic.
With consistent practice, physical therapy can minimize pain, enhance mobility and restore proper function. Some components of rehabilitation that our physical therapists focus on include:
- Range of motion
- Balance & posture
- Strength & coordination
- Fitness & weight loss
- Sports injury prevention
- Sports performance
- Manual therapy
- Body mechanics
Every October welcomes Physical Therapy Month, a month-long celebration of PT’s role in lifelong health & wellness. We invite you to explore PT across our website and social media to see our Physical Therapy team in action.
