Physical Therapy: Orthopedic Treatments in Denver

Orthopedic physical therapy involves the treatment of the musculoskeletal system, including joints and large muscle groups, often times for rehabilitation of body parts such as the jaw, neck, shoulders, back, hips, knees, feet and ankles. Manual therapy practices, as well as mobility and stability exercises and joint manipulation, assist in achieving increased mobility and strength in the joints, neural and myofascial structures affected by orthopedic conditions.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation can be used for individuals who experience chronic orthopedic conditions, are in the process of recovering from an orthopedic surgical procedure, or who want to lessen the chance of future pain or injury with preventative maintenance to their musculoskeletal system.

Determinants of treatment regimens for orthopedic conditions requiring physical therapy include prior evidence-based practices, functional movement evaluations and regional interdependence evaluations and personal factors such as the patient’s lifestyle, injury history, activity level and goals.
