Orthopedic physical therapy consists of the diagnosing, treating, healing, and management of musculoskeletal disorders. Orthopedic physical therapy is most often performed in an out-patient setting, where the therapists are specifically trained in dealing with these types of diagnoses. Our therapists are highly skilled and constantly trained in the use of manual (hands on) techniques, exercises, and accessory equipment to accelerate the patient’s restoration to full function. At LFPT, we treat all orthopedic conditions from head to toe including, TMD, neck and back pain, shoulder, hip and knee pain, Plantar Fasciitis, and Carpal Tunnel. Our therapists will create a customized treatment plan that meets the patient’s specific needs and goals.

We specialize in the following types of orthopedic care:

  • Manual Therapy
    Manual therapy is a clinical approach that utilizes skilled, specific hands-on techniques such as manipulation, mobilization, myofascial release, massage, and muscle energy techniques. It is used to treat soft tissue, joints, and nerves for the purpose of decreasing pain, increasing range of motion (ROM), facilitating movement, and improving function. At LFPT, our therapists receive continuing education on the most recent advances in Manual Therapy techniques.
     
    At LFPT, many of our therapists have completed extensive specialized training and testing to receive their manual therapy certification. We also host 3-4 courses per year of the highest quality manual therapy to ensure that our therapists continue to grow their skills and treatment approach.
