Orthopedic physical therapy focuses on restoring the function of your musculoskeletal system so that you can return to your active lifestyle without pain. Your musculoskeletal system consists of your joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. A joint is where two or more bones come together and is often cushioned by cartilage. Ligaments connect bones to each other to strengthen joints, and tendons connect your muscles to your bones to allow movement. 

Muscles play two important roles in your musculoskeletal system: movement and stability. In order to move your body, your brain tells your muscle to contract, your muscle shortens, and one bone is pulled to another across a joint. You also have muscles that don’t participate in producing large movements, but instead provide stability to your trunk and pelvis during your daily activities. 

Injury to any of these musculoskeletal structures can lead to pain, decreased range of motion, and decreased strength. Whether you are a high level athlete or a grandparent who just wants to hold their grandchildren, orthopedic injuries can get in the way of doing the things you love to do. 


How can Activcore help?

When you are suffering from an orthopedic injury, physical therapy is often a good first line treatment to avoid or minimize the use of opioids or invasive surgeries. In fact, research shows that physical therapy is just as effective as surgery for many common conditions, including rotator cuff tears, meniscus tears, knee arthritis, and degenerative disc disease. And when orthopedic surgery is indicated, physical therapy can improve surgical outcomes by optimizing your function before surgery and guiding you safely in your recovery process after surgery.

Activcore physical therapists assess how you move as it relates to your active lifestyle. They apply a holistic approach to identify not only the site of injury, but the true source of any pain, weakness and dysfunction. Addressing the underlying cause is absolutely essential for healing an injury, preventing recurrence, and keeping you healthy and at a peak level of performance. The progression of your physical therapy treatments should be a reflection of the type of activity you are trying to get back to doing.

You will feel the Activcore difference from your first visit. This is a highly personalized experience delivered by a passionate movement expert fully dedicated to getting you back to the physical activities that you love. Once your pain has been addressed, you will have the opportunity to continue honing your movement through ongoing performance training at Activcore.
