Benefits of Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

Maximize Your Movement – Pain-free movement is crucial to your quality of life, your ability to earn a living, and your independence. Physical therapists are movement experts who can identify, diagnose, and treat movement problems.
Participate in Your Recovery – Physical therapists work collaboratively with their patients. We design treatment plans for each person’s individual goals, challenges, and needs.
Avoid Opioids – Opioid risks include depression, overdose, and addiction, plus withdrawal symptoms when stopping use. In some situations, dosed appropriately, prescription opioids are an appropriate part of medical treatment. However, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging health care providers to reduce the use of opioids in favour of safe alternatives like physical therapy for most long-term pain.
Avoid Surgery – Before you undergo expensive or invasive surgery, try physical therapy. For some conditions, including meniscal tears and knee osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disk disease, treatment by a physical therapist has been found to be as effective as surgery.
