Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Man straining back from lifting heavy boxes of tools.Med1Care Therapy Partner’s physical therapists provide outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation for a vast array of injuries that impact the musculoskeletal system.

Treatment options include physical therapy rehabilitation, pre- and post-surgical care and pain management. Outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation will help you increase mobility and functionality, prevent future injury, understand your medical condition and improve your quality of life.

Reasons for Outpatient Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Many musculoskeletal injuries begin with a fall, repetitive movement strain, or from lifting, carrying or setting down a heavy object.

Orthopedic rehabilitation supports recovery by speeding up the healing process and teaching you how to care for your injury, so you can return to your daily activities.

The benefits of orthopedic rehabilitation include:

  • Maximizing your ability to move without pain, so you can earn a living and live independently.
  • Freedom to collaboratively choose treatment options that best support your unique situation and needs.
  • Reduced need for opioids, lowering the risk of opioid-dependent depression, addiction and withdrawals.
  • Avoidance of expensive, invasive surgeries. Many conditions have the same outcomes with surgery that orthopedic rehabilitation provides, such as meniscal or rotator cuff tears, osteoarthritis of the knee, spinal stenosis and degenerative disk disease.

The target of orthopedic rehabilitation is to enhance your quality of life with personalized care that promotes independence and helps you feel motivated to take the journey to recovery.

Physical therapist working on male patient's neck.Physical therapists are professionals who specialize in improving movement, functionality and quality of life. Using many tools to improve their patients’ fitness and function, physical therapists create individual treatment plans that help their patients avoid surgery, reduce dependency on dangerous opioids, understand their care options and prevent future injuries.

Man wondering about pre and post surgical care.With pre-surgery diagnosis, orthopedic rehabilitation may increase functionality enough to avoid surgery or indicate whether surgical options may be required to support your quality of life.

If you elect to undergo surgery, post-surgical rehabilitation is highly valuable to support your recovery with improved mobility, the restoration of function and improved strength.

Without pre- and post- surgical rehabilitation, patients typically take far longer to heal and may need multiple surgeries.

Woman taking OTC medication.Although no pain reliever is completely free of side effects, orthopedic pain can be managed relatively safely with occasional over-the-counter medications, including acetaminophen (such as Tylenol), ibuprofen (such as Advil or Motrin IB) or naproxen sodium (such as Aleve).
