As experts in movement, physical therapists serve as your first line of care when you experience pain, discomfort or injury while training or competing in your sport. A thorough evaluation from a physical therapist will determine what caused your injury, setting an optimal course for treatment, healing, prevention, and performance enhancement.
The spine is our body’s core, so when the muscles and nerves along it are pinched, pulled or twisted, it can stop us in our tracks. Our physical therapy team is made up of experts in spine health. We focus not just on treating pain, but on determining its cause and preventing it from coming back – getting you back to life.
Pre and Post Surgery Therapy
Hip and knee replacement surgeries are some of the most common operations performed in the U.S., with about 1 million completed each year. And each one of these patients share one thing in common: their desire to get back to the level of work, play and function they enjoyed before first experiencing joint pain. The physical therapy team at Active Care can get them there.
Working with a physical therapist before these and other surgeries can vastly improve your strength, education and confidence going into such a major procedure. In turn, these “prehabilitation” efforts can improve the speed, success and cost of your rehabilitation experience post-surgery, getting you back to doing the things you love – free of pain.
