Orthopedic injuries refer to injuries to your musculoskeletal system. This includes your muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons. These injuries usually occur as the result of an accident or trauma to the body. Age can also be a risk factor for orthopedic injuries and other orthopedic conditions. As we age our bones tend to lose density, making them more prone to breaks and fractures. Some common examples of orthopedic injuries include:
- Lower back pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
Whether you are experiencing neck pain after a car accident or ankle pain from a bad fall, physical therapy or occupational therapy can help you recover from your orthopedic injury. The goal of physical therapy or occupational therapy is to rebuild strength, improve function, and reduce pain. Therapy sessions may include a series of strengthening exercises, aerobic conditioning, and passive treatments like ultrasound technology.
Here at Reddy Care Physical and Occupational Therapy, we are equipped with some of the best treatment methods for healing orthopedic injuries. For example, our LightForce class IV laser is an advanced system we use to stimulate healing and reduce pain and inflammation. We also use Normatecs patented compression technology to increase circulation to the limbs and enhances the body's ability to recover.
