Physical Therapy

A Key Step in Recovery

Orthopedic physiotherapy is designed to help you recover from injuries resulting from both overuse and trauma. The goal of physical therapy is to reduce pain levels from existing injury while strengthening the affected bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and nervous system. Physical therapy consists of various manual therapies, resistance training, improving balance and flexibility, and strengthening your bodily support systems. By increasing balance, strength, and flexibility, patients are able to reduce pain and accomplish increasing fitness goals, while learning to prevent future injury.

Programs as Unique and Varied as Our Patients

Our state of the art physical therapy programs combine in office and at home exercises, stretches, and massage to lower pain levels, increase strength and improve flexibility, all with the goal of increasing mobility and attaining increasing fitness goals. Our programs are tailored to your specific needs and abilities, so no matter what your abilities and challenges are when you enter our office, we’ll develop a physical therapy sequence designed to get you back up to performance level while challenging you and providing a safe series of steps toward recovery.

Pre- and Post-Surgical Physical Therapy

Illinois Orthopedic Institute offers both pre-and post-surgical physical therapy options, and each therapeutic program offers unique, personalized therapy benefits for our patients.
