Do I need orthopedic physical therapy?
Our goal is to avoid surgery and choose the least invasive treatment whenever possible. Physical therapy is often the first recommendation for a wide range of orthopedic conditions we treat, including osteoarthritis, disc disorders, spine disorders and muscle or soft tissue injury.
Generally, your provider may recommend physical therapy to help you avoid or delay surgery. Your condition and its severity will help you and your care team create an effective, personalized treatment plan.
What to expect from outpatient orthopedic physical therapy
Before beginning PT, your physical therapist will perform a complete evaluation to assess your specific needs. We are dedicated to providing 1:1 clinician-to-patient sessions during your recovery process.
Your physical therapist will work with the members of your treatment team to build a treatment plan, which may include:
- The use of assistive devices – such as walkers, crutches or canes
- Body mechanics and posture education including proper lifting and carrying techniques
- Exercises to improve range of motion, flexibility, strength, balance and function
- Work modifications, including teaching you joint protection strategies
- Pain, inflammation and joint treatments – such manual therapy, exercise, use of heat/cold and/or modalities.
Your care team at Goshen Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine will collaborate with Goshen Rehabilitation to schedule your appointments in the same day, whenever possible, saving you travel time.
