Orthopedic and Balance Rehabilitation
Physical therapists provide rehabilitation services that restore function, alleviate pain, and reduce permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or illness. Treatment begins with a review of the patient’s medical history and a test of the patient’s physical condition. A treatment plan is documented that describes specific tasks and anticipated outcomes. Treatment often includes exercises to improve flexibility, strength, and endurance. PT’s also use massage, electrical stimulation, hot or cold treatment, and ultrasound to relieve pain.
TuDor provides orthopedic rehabilitation for patients recovering from joint or muscle surgical procedures. Rehab is provided to maximize range of motion, increase strength in muscles affected by surgery, and to normalize joint proprioception (balance rehab) after the nerves have been cut.
Rehabilitation protocols we treat include:
Balance rehab is utilized for patients who have suffered from strokes or other neurological deficits. In addition, patient’s with balance issues associated with dizziness or vertigo symptoms receive vestibular rehabilitation that teaches compensations to help decrease dizziness, improve balance and improve general activity levels.
