Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy 

Physical therapy is a vital component of the healthcare journey, focusing on improving mobility, strength, and function. At Premier Orthopaedic Associates, our licensed physical and occupational therapists are dedicated to helping patients return to what they love to do free of pain, whether that be getting back onto the playing field, or keeping up with the grandchildren and anything in between. Our team invests time with each patient to understand their most pertinent concerns and tailor each session towards meeting the goals established at the onset of care to regain optimal physical conditioning, and an enhanced overall quality of life.

The role of physical therapy

Physical therapy plays a crucial role in addressing a wide range of conditions, including orthopedic injuries, sports injuries, musculoskeletal disorders, and pre and post-surgical rehabilitation. Our caring physical therapists work closely with patients beginning with an in-depth initial evaluation, including subjective and objective patient information, an understanding of the musculoskeletal impairments, evidence-based practice, and from there design a customized plan of care. We are equipped with specialized equipment like, fitness machines, resistance bikes, and treadmills to mention a few.  

A multimodal approach to physical rehabilitation

At Premier Orthopaedic Associates we use a multimodal treatment approach, by using a combination of skills and techniques to address impairments including therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, ADL training, neuromuscular/proprioceptive training, strength training, return to sport training, biophysical modalities, and electrical stimulation.
