Orthopedic physical therapy treats injuries to the neuro-musculoskeletal systems (muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and nerves of the body).
At Bodywise, we treat these problems in a cohesive, systematic, empowering manner by first identifying the true nature of the orthopedic problem. The patient immediately becomes part of the healing process through education on posture and body mechanics and on what to do to avoid injurious movements or positions.
From here we implement our expertise in manual therapies which promote rapid healing to the soft tissues and bony structures of the body. The focus of the manual therapies is to restore proper mechanical function of the muscles, bones and nerves as efficiently and precisely as possible.
It is from this place that the body most efficiently responds to patient-specific therapeutic exercise.
We stress the following:
In all of our work, we incorporate the three components of posture and body mechanics, manual therapies and directed therapeutic exercise which are essential to both healing and avoiding re-injury.
