Orthopedic Care in Catonsville, Baltimore, Canton, & Brewers Hill
What Is Orthopedic Care?
Orthopedic care is a subset of physical therapy specializing in the musculoskeletal structure—that is, the bones, muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. All of these parts are joined together. Tears, sprains, fractures, etc., can greatly inhibit one’s ability to function daily or engage in sports. An orthopedic physical therapist will look at the cause of your bone or muscle pain and develop a treatment to help heal. He or she may also have knowledge in treating neurological, pediatric, and geriatric issues through physical therapy.
What Conditions Call for Orthopedic Therapy?
Orthopedic conditions usually concern the spine, hips, shoulders, necks, knees, ankles, elbows, and the muscles that connect to them. If you have pain in any of these areas, Kreis Physical Therapy can look at your unique condition and devise a treatment solution for you.
Specific examples of conditions that call for orthopedic therapy include:
- ACL injury
- Foot injury
- Joint stiffness or swelling
- Lost range of motion
- Back, hip, knee, and neck pain
- Sprained ankle
Outpatient Orthopedic Therapy Services
Outpatient orthopedic care is simply orthopedic care outside of a hospital and not requiring an overnight stay in the healthcare center. Outpatient care allows you to still enjoy the comfort of your own bed, food, and general lifestyle. With the development of medicine today, many procedures do not require inpatient care anymore. With orthopedic therapy, you can catch problems early, avoid surgery, and be on your way to a healed and healthier life.
