    Common Physical Therapy Treatment Modalities

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Physical therapy is an instrumental part of the treatment and rehabilitation of many musculoskeletal injuries. Not only does physical therapy help restore the proper strength and function of muscles and joints, it also provides education and instruction that patients can use to improve their long-term health and wellness.

    Before beginning a course of physical therapy, patients are assessed by an experienced physical therapist. Together, therapist and patient will formulate a treatment and rehabilitation plan that may include specialized exercises, stretching, manual therapy, lifestyle changes, massage, or other advanced therapeutic practices. The treatment plan may also involve education for at-home care and the prevention of future injury. Throughout the process, the therapist communicates closely with the patient’s physician to report progress.

    Qualities to Look for When Choosing an Orthopaedic Surgeon

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Orthopaedic surgeons are extensively trained to assist patients with a wide variety of bothersome and painful musculoskeletal ailments, from back pain to carpal tunnel syndrome. If you are suffering from an injury or illness that requires the assistance of an orthopaedic surgeon, you may be wondering how to choose the best doctor for you. Below are some of the qualities you should consider when making your decision.

    Experience and Education

    Many patients factor a physician’s surgical experience and place of education into their final decision. If you are looking to undergo a knee replacement surgery for the treatment of osteoarthritis, for example, you may want to ask your surgeon how long he has been practicing as a surgeon and how many knee replacements he performs each year. Investigate where your prospective surgeon went to school, where he received residency training, and if he fellowship trained in a specific field.

    Recommendations

    If you are unsure where to start your search, consider asking your primary care physician. He or she should be able to recommend and refer you to an experienced, respected surgeon in your area. Your friends and family may also help you find a surgeon in your area based on their own experience.

    Personal Compatibility

    After meeting a surgeon for the first time, it is important to feel like your concerns are addressed and your questions answered. Having a good professional relationship with your physician will help ensure good communication and a more comfortable treatment and healing process.

    The orthopaedic specialists of Suburban Orthopaedics are experienced, compassionate surgeons who are committed to providing comprehensive medical care. Each physician at our practice offers a unique area of specialty to provide the most personalized and effective treatment available.
