Paper Abstract

Orthopedic physical therapy is an important part of physical therapy as it helps to reduce pain and restore movement to areas of the body affected by injury, illness, or surgery. It focuses on restoring the mobility, strength, and function of the musculoskeletal system, while also addressing the psychological and emotional aspects of the injury. Orthopedic physical therapy can help manage chronic conditions, reduce pain, improve joint flexibility and range of motion, improve balance and coordination, and prevent future orthopedic injuries.

Orthopedic Physical Therapy

Orthopedics is a branch of medicine that focuses on rehabilitating the musculoskeletal system and injuries to ligaments, tendons, muscles, and bones. 


Orthopedic physical therapy can help relieve pain due to overuse injuries, sprains, strains, traumatic injuries and/or after orthopedic surgeries and will improve your function so you can return to your prior level of activity confidently.
