Our body is a complex system of bones and muscles that work together in order to keep you doing the things you love. From your shoulder to your knees, your skeletal and muscular systems perform in harmony so you can function properly. However, like any other functioning mechanism, some parts have a tendency to become impaired. Whether it’s playing a sport or just performing basic activities, trying to perform with an injury is extremely difficult. That’s why at Island Sports Physical Therapy, our talented and devoted physical therapists are committed to getting you back to your physical best and will do whatever possible to make sure you’re fully recovered.
Orthopedic treatment is the branch of medicine where diseases, injuries, and conditions of the musculoskeletal system are handled. Relating to the body’s muscles and skeleton, including the joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves, orthopedic treatment can treat a wide variety of injuries and conditions. A talented physical therapist team at Island Sports Physical Therapy will give you the confidence needed to get back to your main hobbies without the fear of pain or discomfort.
Promoting different treatments like functional mobility, balance training, and soft tissue mobilization, physical therapists at Island Sports Physical Therapy have a variety of tools and techniques in order to help promote proper healing.
Because a majority of orthopedic injuries seriously hinder your ability to perform even the most feasible of tasks, a physical therapist will implement a treatment plan that includes modalities and exercises that will give you back any lost strength due to injury. Through the recovery process, a physical therapist will evaluate your progress and, depending on how well you’re improving, will give you more exercises to expedite the process.
