Orthopedic Injury

The physical therapists at Flowstate Physiotherapy are specialized in treating orthopedic injuries ranging from muscle strains and tendonitis to bone stress injuries, fractures, and postoperative rehabilitation. 

Our physical therapists are Doctors of Physical Therapy and treat all body parts from head to toe. Some of the most common injuries we treat include: low back pain, lumbar radiculopathy (disc herniation or bludging), Achilles tendonitis, ITB syndrome, runner's knee (patellofemoral pain syndrome), shin splints, hip labrum tears, plantar fascitis, and hamstring strains. 

At your initial visit, your physical therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation to figure out the root cause of your pain. This evaluation includes assessing your range of motion, strength, joint mobility, balance and motor control, and ability to perform functional movements. If you are a runner, a gait analysis will be completed to see how your movement during running may be affecting your injury.

Your treatment for your orthopedic injury will be customized to your needs and current status based off of your past medical history and a comprehensive examination performed by your physical therapist. You will likely be treated with a combination of manual therapy and therapeutic exercise prescription. Our physical therapists will also create a customized home exercise program as a part of your treatment plan to make sure that you continue to progress between treatments and have the tools to maintain the improvements following your rehab.

We focus every treatment on reaching your goals because we know how much injury can negatively impact your life. So whether you want to be able to go on family walks without worry or run a PR in your next marathon, we will do everything we can to help you get there and stay there. 

How long will I need physical therapy for my orthopedic injury?

Acute orthopedic injuries typically take between 4-6 weeks to heal. However, this can vary widely based on the injury’s severity, duration of injury before being treated, individual comorbidities, prior level of function, and level of activity that you are returning to. Your physical therapist will be able to give you a better estimate of your recovery time after your evaluation.
