Orthopedics is defined as the study of the human musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic doctors are physicians who have specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of problems to our musculoskeletal system, which includes: bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Damage to these structures may potentially lead to an orthopedic surgery; however, Ability Rehabilitation offers non-surgical treatment options for many orthopedic problems.
Orthopedic injuries are one of the largest branches of study to both physical therapists and occupational therapists. Physical and occupational therapists provide care to patients of all ages who suffer impairments, restrictions, and activity limitations due to musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders. The therapists at Ability Rehabilitation have been educated to design and individualized plan of treatment based on their clinical judgment, evaluation findings, and the goals of the patient. We understand the importance of collaborating with orthopedic physicians in order to provide the best care possible for each and every patient.
