What Is Orthopedic Rehabilitation?

Orthopedic rehabilitation is a type of physical therapy that promotes recovery from injuries and illnesses that affect the musculoskeletal system. This bodily system encompasses all of the following:

  • Bones
  • Muscles
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Soft tissues

Because the musculoskeletal system is so expansive, injuries to any of the above areas can significantly impact a person’s ability to perform even simple tasks. Sitting, standing, and walking all become challenging with orthopedic injuries.

Our orthopedic rehabilitation service helps patients across various demographics recover from musculoskeletal injuries or better manage chronic conditions impacting this system. Our services give real hope for a brighter future despite any orthopedic limitations.

What Can Orthopedic Rehabilitation Help With?

Orthopedic rehabilitation can promote pain relief and recovery from a wide range of conditions, such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • TMJ disorders
  • Overuse injuries
  • Post-surgical pain and weakness
  • Joint replacement surgeries

Even if your injury isn’t on this list, don’t hesitate to reach out — we can likely assist you.

What To Expect With Orthopedic Rehabilitation From Spero Rehab

When you schedule an appointment for orthopedic rehabilitation, we’ll begin by conducting a consultation and examination of your condition. We’ll ask about your symptoms and physical goals and take a few scans of the target area to understand better what we’re working with.

Next, we’ll develop a treatment plan that targets your goals and promotes fast yet long-lasting rehabilitation. Your treatment plan may include any of the following therapies:

  • Strengthening exercises to build muscle and support movements in the targeted area
  • Joint and neural mobilizations to increase range of motion and flexibility
  • Soft tissue manipulation to improve the mobility of stiff soft tissues and increase circulation
  • Dry needling to stimulate the muscles, increase blood flow, and relieve pain
  • Blood-flow restriction to build muscle through low-intensity exercise

Our compassionate physical therapists will take great care to minimize your pain and discomfort throughout these therapies. We’ll also show you a few exercises you can do at home to continue building strength and range of motion between appointments.

As we progress through your treatment plan, we’ll evaluate how your symptoms have improved and may make changes to your plan accordingly.
