Orthopaedic Conditions

 

PTOSI offers rehabilitation services for individuals with orthopaedic-related issues, which include bone fractures, joint replacement, osteoporosis, arthritis, hip and knee replacement, and tendon repair.

In addition, patients who have spinal conditions, including spinal stenosis, laminectomy, scoliosis and tumor can also benefit from rehabilitation.

The physical therapists at PTOSI understand the importance of a team approach for successful management of these often complex disorders. The expertise of the therapists complements dental, surgical, and medical interventions.

Treatment for Spinal Conditions

The therapists at PTOSI specialize in manual therapy treatment of patients with a vast array of spinal conditions, including neck pain, back pain, and headaches.

Our therapists use a variety of treatment options. Treatment for spinal conditions often includes manual therapy complimented with a home exercise program. Whether you were recently injured and are suffering from acute pain, or you have been chronically suffering from a spinal condition for a long time, our therapists will work with you to develop a specialized program.

We treat patients who have experienced injuries as a result of an automobile accident, trauma, or joint sprain/strain. We also treat post-operative spinal conditions.

Treatment for TMJ syndrome

PTOSI has physical therapists with advanced training in the area of evaluation and treatment of temporomandibular disorders.

Some of the conditions treated:

  • Post-traumatic injuries
  • Chronic pain syndromes
  • Post-surgical cases

A biomechanical evaluation of the soft tissues and joints of the craniofacial and cervical regions provides the basis for the development of an individualized treatment program.

Treatment Modalities Include:

  • Joint and Soft Tissue Mobilization
  • Neuromuscular Re-education
  • Myofascial Inhibitory Techniques

These modalities are used to address the postural and movement abnormalities noted during the evaluation. An important goal is patient self-management which is accomplished by extensive patient education and an individualized home exercise program.

Physical agents:

  • Ultrasound
  • Electrical Stimulation
  • Iontophoresis
  • Heat
  • Cold
