Physical therapy is a treatment method you may need if an orthopedic injury or condition is causing you pain or is making it difficult for you to move or complete everyday tasks.
The goal of physical therapy is to make movement and activity easier, reduce your pain, restore muscular function and strength, and help you return to your pre-injury activities, work, and recreation.
Your doctor may recommend physical therapy to help you recover following surgery, following an injury, or to alleviate the pains of long-term health problems, including:
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Sports and repetitive stress injuries
- Tendon or ligament injuries or tears
