Who Can Benefit From Orthopedic Physical Therapy?

Orthopedic physical therapy can benefit individuals struggling with:

  • Arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Sports injuries (ACL/MCL tears, rotator cuff injuries, tennis elbow)
  • Lower back, neck, hip or knee pain
  • Poor balance or coordination issues
  • Limited mobility due to injury, surgery or fracture
  • Sprains, strains or musculoskeletal pain
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation (joint replacement, ligament/tendon repair)

People of all ages and activity levels seek orthopedic PT to manage chronic conditions or recover from unexpected injuries.

The right treatment plan can help you achieve goals like:

  • Reducing joint/muscle pain
  • Improving balance, coordination, posture
  • Increasing flexibility, mobility, range of motion
  • Strengthening muscles around injured joints
  • Learning proper movement mechanics
  • Returning to activities or sports you enjoy
  • Improving performance by identifying biomechanical inefficiencies
  • Recovering from surgery or fractures
  • Preventing re-injury through tailored exercise plans

Regardless of your limitations, challenges or condition, our orthopedic physical therapists can help guide you toward moving, feeling and living better.

The Benefits of Orthopedic Physical Therapy in Greenville

Orthopedic physical therapy offers a number of benefits over pain medications or surgery alone:

1. Long-Term Pain Relief
Rather than mask pain, we address the root cause through manual therapy, modalities like heat/ice, and therapeutic exercise. This multidimensional approach provides natural, long-lasting pain relief by reducing inflammation and muscle tension around affected joints.
2. Improved Mobility and Strength
Restricted movement from injury or surgery can lead to further pain and stiffness. Our therapists will create a customized exercise program to gently improve mobility, stability, and strength over time. Increased flexibility and stamina makes normal daily activities easier.
3. Lasting Functional Improvements
Our goal goes beyond short-term pain relief – we want to see lasting improvements in movement, balance, coordination and your ability to participate in activities you enjoy. With targeted interventions, we retrain proper motion patterns for sustained functional gains.
4. Reduced Risk of Re-Injury
Tailored home exercise programs allow you to carry positive progress forward in a safe, controlled way. With guidance on proper movement mechanics, activity modification and developing stronger supportive muscles, you can continue improving mobility while minimizing re-injury risk.

By identifying and addressing movement compensations early, we resolve biomechanical forces contributing to repetitive strain for more effective, longer-lasting injury prevention.

Frequently Asked Questions About Orthopedic Physical Therapy

Wondering if orthopedic physical therapy is right for you? Here are answers to some questions we often hear from those considering treatment:

Does it hurt? – Some temporary soreness can be expected when first beginning an exercise program to rebuild muscle strength or improve joint mobility. However, all exercises and activities will be carefully controlled and tailored to your current ability to prevent overexertion. Our physical therapists constantly monitor for proper form and technique to avoid compensation or further injury. If you ever experience intense or sharp pain during a session, let your therapist know right away.

What happens during a typical PT session? Each orthopedic therapy session follows a structured format for maximum benefit within your capability on any given day:

  • Evaluation of current status/progress since last session
  • Hands on manual therapy to improve joint mobility, relax muscles
  • Therapeutic exercises to improve stability, strength, range of motion
  • Modalities like heat/ice to manage inflammation and pain
  • Instruction on proper exercise form and technique for safety
  • Education on modifying activities to allow for continued healing

Sessions typically last between 45-60 minutes. Your therapist will also recommend home exercises to do between visits. With consistency, these customized treatment plans lead to cumulative gains over time.

What if I feel too much pain during a session? – Communication is vital – we expect you to speak up if an exercise triggers discomfort or pain so we can adjust right away. Some soreness may indicate therapeutic change is occurring, while sharper pains warrant modification. Our experts never progress faster than your body can safely handle to avoid risk of further injury. Working together within appropriate thresholds leads to the best recovery outcomes.

I’m so glad I Chose Body Works Women’s Health & Wellness for my pelvic floor physical therapy. Dr. Elizabeth helped me achieve my goals of stregnthening my pelvic floor muscles. She really helped me to learn how to work out smarter, without putting so much pressure on my pelvic floor. I feel more ‘in control’ when I go to the gym now. She was fun to work with and always tailored the exercises to fit my fitness level. Also, it was so helpful to have the ‘real time’ ultrasound in the beginning, so I could see and feel exactly which muscles I needed to strengthen. I highly recommend this facility
