Physical Therapy is a profession that seeks to return patients to the highest possible degree of personal independence. The ORS Physical Therapist (PT) works with patients with disabilities of the muscular, skeletal, neurological, circulatory, and respiratory systems. Physical therapists are also involved in prevention programs to assist people of all ages in maintaining health and physical fitness.
The orthopedic rehabilitation specialist plans and administers individualized treatment programs that are designed to restore functional movement, relieve pain, promote healing and recovery and, when necessary, help patients adapt to permanent disability. The physical therapist plans the treatment program, evaluates the patient and his or her medical history, and consults with other members of the patient's health care team.
At ORS, we have a variety of physical therapy treatment options depending on the nature of the injury. We have several methods of treatments including manual therapy, aquatic or water therapy, Graston Technique, PiezoWave or WellWave acoustic wave therapy, AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, Myofascial Decompression (MFD), E-Stim, Traction, and Women’s Therapy.
Tests, observation and interviews provide vital information about a patient's strength, reflexes, sensory perception, posture, gait, cardiopulmonary endurance, and daily living activities. After evaluation, the PT treats the patient through various forms of exercise, physical modalities (including heat, cold, ultrasound, electricity, and massage), functional activities, and assistive/adaptive devices.
The ORS physical therapist exercises judgment in interpreting test results to plan and adjust treatment. Successful physical therapy may take weeks, months or years, depending on the extent of the injury or disability and the patient's motivation. But at ORS, we will be with you through it all and here to help you get back to living, working and playing again.
