Rehabilitation

After a thorough evaluation your physical therapist will design a program to help you decrease pain, improve range of motion, increase strength and return you to your former activity level. Frequently used treatment techniques are strengthening exercises, stretching, hot/cold packs, ultrasound, massage, joint mobilizations and electrical stimulation.
