Physical Therapy After Injury, Recovery, and Rehabilitation in Orlando

Physical Therapy After Injury, Recovery, and Rehabilitation Orlando

Physical therapists (PTs) are healthcare professionals who are trained and skilled in evaluating and treating common musculoskeletal and neurological injuries. Many practicing PTs have doctoral degrees, and may work in outpatient or inpatient settings. PTs also provide interdisciplinary care by collaborating with other professionals, including orthopedic surgeons, MDs, and strength and conditioning coaches, in order to ensure continuity of care and maximized health and physical integrity of a patient with an injury. 

What should I expect when I first meet with my physical therapist? 

During your first therapy session, your PT will perform a thorough examination to ensure a correct diagnosis of your injury. This diagnosis helps guide the individualized treatment plan that your PT will implement throughout your recovery and rehabilitation. 

What are the benefits of physical therapy treatment for my injury?

PTs can help accelerate your healing and assist you with your recovery and rehabilitative goals, and there are many benefits of receiving skilled physical therapy when faced with an injury. These benefits include: 

  • Reduced pain and inflammation. PTs promote healing and pain relief by using various modalities including electrical stimulation, ultrasound, laser therapy, massage, and cryotherapy
  • Improved strength and endurance of relative musculature. By prescribing appropriate therapeutic exercises, PTs help restore your body's normal function while also improving your activity tolerance and strength.  
  • Restored normal joint movement and range of motion. Your injury may cause stiffness in a certain area of your body. PTs use manual techniques, like massage and joint mobilizations, as well as modalities such as orthotics and kinesiotape, in order to help your body achieve it's normal mobility. 
  • Improved patient education. One of your PT's main jobs is to educate you on proper body mechanics and posture, whether at work, school, or play. This is critical for minimizing further tissue damage, promoting healing, and preventing injury recurrence.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I got into a car accident. My first one ever in fact. I wasn't really sure where to turn or what to do, but I knew my back and neck were pretty messed up and I needed some help. I did a quick Google search and found exactly what I needed. The Rumley Family website was very professional appearing and they got back to me quickly. I started my treatment and felt like a part of the family from the get go. Treatment was consistent and they paid deep attention to where I actually hurt unlike some doctors that tell you what hurts when it doesn't. Im very satisfied and I would come back again"

  • ""They are very nice family and very generous"

    This year I recently got into a car accident with my boyfriend and we were referred to Rumley Family Chiropractic for treatment. They took great care of us each visit we went to and helped us get better over the months. They are a very nice family and very generous. We recommend this place better than any other place!"
