Physical Therapy for your Health
Physical Therapy is the treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise to support a therapeutic plan of care. Your physical therapist will work with you and your medical team to understand more about your pain, and develop a treatment plan to help address your condition.
Physical Therapy is an integral component of care at Orlando Spine & Joint. Physical Therapy defined is a treatment that helps individuals improve or restore physical function, reduces pain, assists in the healing process and ultimately prevents disability. We properly evaluate and diagnose joint motion dysfunction and based upon the individual and their diagnosis, develop specific care plans that may include therapeutic exercise, manual therapy techniques, electrotherapeutic modalities and or physical agents such as ice or heat. Physical health care is constantly evolving. We pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve and travel thousands of miles each year for continuing education and seminars. This enables us and ensures that we provide our patients the most up to date care and technologically advanced equipment available in the market today.
