Physical & Occupational Therapies


The Rehabilitation Staff at the INSTITUTE FOR ORTHOPAEDIC SURGERY is available to treat a
variety of orthopedic conditions. Some of the most common conditions we treat are the
result of injuries to the: rotator cuff, wrist, hand, back, knee, and ankle.

Prior to initiating treatment, a licensed Physical Therapist (PT) or Occupational
Therapist (OT) will complete a comprehensive evaluation. Once the evaluation
is complete, your therapist will work with you to design the appropriate treatment plan.

Reducing pain and returning patients to their prior level of function are some of the
primary goals held by our therapists. Various modalities, such as, heat, cold, ultrasound
and electric stimulation may be used to control pain levels. As your pain is under control,
the therapists will progress the activities, including: strengthening, stretching, manual therapy, patient education, etc.

Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy

Rehabilitation Services includes both Physical and Occupational Therapy. Although the Occupational and Physical Therapists use many of the same approaches to patient care, including: therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, patient education and modalities, there are some slight differences in the patients they treat. The following is a generalized division of cases by body parts:

Anatomical   Discipline
Hand, Wrist and Elbow Occupational Therapy
