Physical Therapy

Physical therapy works on the muscles, joints, and connective tissues. Some treatments are active, which means you do most of the work. Other forms of physical therapy are passive, where your therapist administers the treatment. Physical therapy is one of the most effective methods of treating musculoskeletal injuries and other disorders.

Regardless of what kind of medical professional you see, the first treatment they’re likely to offer will be physical therapy — unless you need urgent surgery. In many cases, patients recover from their pain and dysfunction without needing any other treatment.

Back To You Osteopractic Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation’s dedicated physical therapists provide each patient with personalized treatments based on clinical evidence. Each therapist works alongside you to develop achievable goals and ensure you receive client-centered, individualized care.

Your therapist also gives you all the information you need to understand your condition and self-manage your symptoms.
