If your joints, bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, or connective tissue is causing you pain and/or affecting your mobility, our orthopedics physical therapy Austin, TX team may be able to help you manage your condition(s) as successfully as is possible under the circumstances. No two bodies are exactly alike, which is why we custom tailor our patients’ treatment plans to fit their needs. At Austin Physical Therapy, we don’t just treat the “whole patient” – we treat each patient uniquely.
Orthopedic physical therapy is the branch of physical therapy services that focuses on a patient’s musculoskeletal system. However, it is important to understand that Austin Physical Therapy’s treatment plans rarely isolate one system from the rest of the body. Oftentimes, patients benefit when our treatment programs also integrate therapies that positively affect related bodily systems—including the cardiovascular and/or neurological systems. If you are holding back from seeking services because you are concerned that a treatment plan will not take your broader challenges into account, know that our approach will address your concerns directly.
Who Can Benefit from Orthopedic Physical Therapy Services?
Individuals of all ages and “health status” may benefit from orthopedic physical therapy services, depending on the ins and outs of their unique circumstances. Our Austin, TX orthopedics physical therapy team treats patients whose bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and/or connective tissue are giving them cause for concern.
Many physical therapy patients seek care after suffering accident-related trauma. Trauma often occurs as a result of falls, sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, tough birthing experiences, repetitive stress, and/or working conditions. We also regularly treat patients who suffer from chronic health conditions—whether injury-related or illness-related. Finally, many of our patients have navigated certain conditions since birth that benefit from physical therapy at any age.
Because our patient experiences and needs are so varied, the services we provide are varied as well. While you will almost certainly be trained in certain exercises that can benefit you uniquely, you may also benefit from tissue manipulation, taping, temperature therapies, traction, etc. Many patients hesitate to seek treatment because they can “just get some exercises online.” Our personalized approach to treatment extends far beyond having you perform a few exercises “here and there.”
