How Can Physical Therapy Help?
Once your injury has been diagnosed, you will work with your orthopedic doctor and physical therapist to decide if you need surgery, or if you can recover with physical therapy. If you don’t have surgery, your therapist will work with you so that you can return to your regular daily activities. If you decide to have surgery, your therapist can help you both before and after the procedure.
Whichever route of treatment you take, early diagnosis and treatment can truly help speed up the healing process and to help prevent any permanent damage.
