The orthopedic surgeons at Colorado Center of Orthopaedic Excellence often prescribe physical therapy both before and after surgery to help patients prepare for surgery and recover faster afterward. Our doctors and physical therapists work together closely to ensure you receive comprehensive, coordinated care from diagnosis to recovery.
Physical therapy helps restore function, improve range of motion, regain muscular coordination and alleviate pain. Many patients with conditions including back pain, neck pain, shoulder and elbow conditions, hip and knee conditions, carpal tunnel, Achilles tendonitis, osteoarthritis, and many more benefit from physical therapy.
The physical therapy program at Colorado Center of Orthopaedic Excellence is designed to help you stay focused on healing and is personalized to fit into your busy lifestyle. Our therapists will help educate you about your condition and how to prevent it from happening again.
In addition to physical therapists, we also have certified hand therapists (CHT) on staff who focus exclusively on hand, wrist, and elbow rehabilitation. Plus, our physical therapy department is conveniently located on the same campus as our medical office, so you won’t have to go elsewhere for your care.
Our Colorado Springs physical therapists and CHTs have advanced training and knowledge of the musculoskeletal system and are passionate about helping you achieve optimum results. To accomplish this, our therapists conduct a thorough physical evaluation and utilize diagnostic testing results to customize your unique treatment plan. Our patient-centered approach encourages you along the way to comply with your prescribed exercises for better patient outcomes.
The time is now to begin treatment so you can live pain-free and get back to your active lifestyle. Let us be your healing cheerleaders! Request an appointment online or call us today at (719) 623-1795.
