Physical therapy is an integral specialty of the team at Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (AOSMI).

Based on the unique needs and goals of each patient, our physical therapists develop highly tailored fitness- and wellness-oriented physical therapy programs. The overriding goal of our practice is to help each patient find the most conservative treatment approach that will be effective over the long run. In many cases, that involves physical therapy, such as functional strength training, electrical stimulation, and/or therapeutic massage.

What Can Be Achieved With Physical Therapy?

Often recommended by physicians as a first-line treatment for acute orthopedic injuries and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, physical therapy helps many people become physically stronger and more flexible so they can ultimately regain their prior mobility and function. For example, physical therapy can help a patient:

  • Find effective pain relief without relying on narcotic medications
  • Return to work and resume other daily activities
  • Prepare for the physical responsibilities of a new job
  • Prevent future injuries
  • Delay or eliminate the need for surgery
  • Manage the effects of aging, including joint degeneration and bone density loss
  • Improve balance and coordination
  • Reduce the risk of falling

In addition to physical therapy, AOSMI offers a wide range of other orthopedic treatments, both conservative and surgical, and we welcome patients of all ages.
