Physical Therapy Treatments

During your initial visit to AOSMI, your physical therapist will review your medical history and ask about your injury or condition. After gathering detailed information about your physical limitations and functional goals, they will work with you to develop a personalized care plan to meet your unique needs and expectations.

The physical therapists at AOSMI can use a variety of advanced techniques to improve your mobility and flexibility, such as:

  • Deep tissue massage
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Heat and ice therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Balance and gait training
  • Kinesio Taping™
  • Graston Technique®

If you are normally physically active, we can also recommend passive exercises or low-impact aerobic activities to help you gradually work up to more complex movements and ultimately resume your previous activity level.

Unique Benefits of Physical Therapy

For many patients, physical therapy, when combined with medications, can offer a more comprehensive approach to injury care, potentially enhancing effectiveness beyond medication alone. Unlike other treatments, physical therapy can be continued long after recovery. Our physical therapists can create a regimen of exercises and stretches that you can perform at home to continue conditioning your body and help prevent future injuries.

The physical therapists at Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute strive to promote rehabilitation, fitness, and healthy living by providing our patients with hands-on care and education.


In addition to physical therapy and pain management treatment, we also offer acupuncture services as a complementary option to expedite a speedy recovery. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves the insertion of tiny needles into specific points on the body to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.

Our licensed acupuncturists have a deep understanding of acupuncture techniques and are skilled in providing safe and effective treatments for various orthopedic conditions.
