Is orthopedic physical therapy right for me?

The PT Works team determines which form of physical therapy is best for your personal needs. They discuss your symptoms, medical history, medication, lifestyle, and more. Your therapist completes a physical evaluation and might request orders for imaging procedures, bloodwork, or other diagnostic measures before tailoring your treatment plan.

What happens during orthopedic physical therapy sessions?

During orthopedic physical therapy, your therapist helps you complete exercises, stretches, and balance activities that strengthen weak or injured tissues and improve their function. They help you complete in-office treatments and show you activities to do at home between sessions at PT Works. The practice also offers spinal manipulation, dry needling, and electric stimulation.

How often do I need orthopedic physical therapy?
