Physical therapy can have a significant impact on a patient’s recovery or alleviation of symptoms after injury. Physical therapy may be a standalone treatment option for recovery, or it may be used alongside other treatments, such as being utilized after surgery.
Common Uses for Physical Therapy
When performed under the care of certified and experienced physical therapists, PT can be utilized for a myriad of aches, pains, and physical impairments that happen as a result of injury:
- Joint and Muscle Pain
- Ligament Sprains (knees, ankles, wrists, etc.)
- Muscle or Tendon Strains (i.e. a pulled muscle)
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Sports-related Injuries
- Managing chronic illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease
- Rehab after an accident, injury, or stroke
- Post-Surgery Recovery
- Adapting to assistive devices or artificial limbs
Our Physical Therapy Process
Colorado Occupational Medical Partners offers physical therapy (aka physiotherapy or PT) regimens specially tailored for work injury recovery. Patients will first undergo a physical exam, including testing procedures and a look into their health history. These tests may include evaluating posture, assessing Range of Motion (ROM), and generally testing for movement and flexibility.
After these tests, our physical therapists will be able to give a clinical diagnosis, as well as a general prognosis of what to expect. We will then be able to devise a proper treatment plan and establish short- and long-term goals for recovery.
The next step is implementing your personalized treatment plan. There are a variety of different treatment techniques that may be utilized during your treatment, including:
- Manual Therapy
- Low-Level Laser
- Functional Electrical Stimulation
- Dry Needling
While undergoing treatment, our therapists will stay in constant contact and clearly communicate with you about treatment options, progress towards your recovery goals, and educating you on treatment techniques you can perform at home to help speed up your recovery.
