Physical Therapy for Shoulder
At the Shoulder Institute at ORTHOKnox, physical therapy is essential to a safe and speedy recovery. Our highly skilled physical therapists draw upon extensive experience and knowledge and utilize the latest research to achieve maximum patient function and pain relief. Every injury, every surgery, and every patient is different, so our approach to physical therapy is based on your unique situation. Our goal is to design a personalized rehabilitation program that allows you to return to sports, work, and an active lifestyle.
We offer physical therapy services for:
- Orthopedic rehabilitation
- Post-surgical rehabilitation
- Sports medicine
Our specialized physical therapists treat the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms. We start with a comprehensive evaluation to determine the primary problem(s) causing your pain and limitations. Once identified, we develop an individualized treatment plan to correct or minimize the primary problems as well as the symptoms.
Your physical therapy treatment plan will focus on exercise, biomechanical assessment, and manual techniques to restore motion and strength. Our therapists also provide traditional interventions including ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat and cold therapies, and massage, as deemed appropriate.
Physical therapy helps to restore movement, improve flexibility, and strengthen the shoulder. The on-site physical therapists at the Shoulder Institute at ORTHOKnox work with you to develop a customized treatment that heals your current injury and prevents future problems.
If you still have pain after physical therapy, your doctor may recommend surgery to repair the labrum. This procedure is performed arthroscopically.
