Orthopedic injuries involve damage to a muscle, tendon or joint and result in dysfunction and pain. Physical therapists are widely accepted in the healthcare realm as "Movement Specialists" and management of your orthopedic conditions should involve consultation with a Physical Therapist.

The sooner you address your orthopedic injuries, the better your prognosis and recovery will be.
