You’ve probably heard from a friend or relative who’s undergoing physical rehabilitation- or perhaps you’ve even had some yourself. And while you probably know how physical rehab helps people recover from an injury, you might not know the full extent of physical rehabilitation.

Our physical rehab experts help people of all ages return to normal function after an injury or disease. They also develop individualized treatment programs designed to prevent injury from occurring or to slow the progression of conditions resulting from injury, disease, and other causes.

Increasingly, people are looking to physical rehabilitation as an alternative to surgery or medication – or at least the first step in treatment hoping the other can be avoided. Through exercise, heat, cold, electrical stimulation, ultrasound (sound waves), soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and more, the physical rehab specialist helps improve a person’s use of bones, muscles, joints, and nerves.

Anytime you have a problem with movement that keeps you from participating in activities you enjoy, you might benefit from seeing a physical rehabilitation specialist. Some of the most common reasons people seek physical rehab include:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder, arm, wrist, or hand problems, including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Posture problems, including scoliosis
  • Knee, ankle, or foot problems
  • Leg problems
