Orthopedic Therapy

What is Orthopedic Physical Therapy?

Orthopedic physical therapy focuses on the evaluation, treatment, and correction of deformities or impairments in the musculoskeletal system. This includes joints in the spine and extremities, as well as associated muscles and ligaments. Our therapists will assist you in maximizing your function, preventing surgery, or successfully recovering from surgery.

Why Should I Choose Dry Creek Physical Therapy?

Our specialized physical therapists work individually with each patient. You can expect to receive a thorough evaluation of your unique condition, followed by one-on-one therapy as your therapist works with you to develop a recovery plan catered to your goals and interests. Our goal is to provide you with quick pain relief, help you return to the activities you love, and teach you how to prevent future injury.
