Portland physical therapy services appointments
Orthopedic physical therapy practice involves the
treatment and management of acute and chronic disorders or injuries of the neuro-musculoskeletal system
that result in pain, limitations, and disability. The neuro-musculoskeletal system involves the nerves, muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, and other soft tissues of the body.
We work with patients who have post-surgical as well as non-surgical conditions. Examples include:
sports injuries, work injuries, overuse injuries, falls, traumatic injuries, car accidents, and orthopedic surgeries.
We also treat patients with headaches, pain syndromes, arthritis, osteoporosis, nerve entrapment, pregnancy and post-partum related back pain and sacroiliac pain, and stress urinary incontinence.
Additional services include
custom foot orthotics, injury prevention and biomechanical analysis, sport specific training, general conditioning, lifting and body mechanics.
Treatment is tailored to each individual based on a patient’s history and examination that identifies relevant impaired body functions and activity limitations. Treatments are based on the current best research evidence, sound scientific theory, and expert clinical experience. Decisions are made jointly with the patient. The goal of treatment is to help patients return to their best level of health and function. Common interventions include
joint mobilization and manipulation, soft-tissue mobilization, therapeutic exercise, education, ergonomic training, taping, and orthotics.
Modalities, such as laser, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and iontopheresis, can be used to help patients become more active in therapy, when needed.
