Orthopedic rehabilitation is the treatment of issues with the musculoskeletal system including muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons. These treatments help patients who have difficulty moving. The limited mobility can be the result of an accident, sports injury, a chronic condition, or a post-surgical occurrence. Patients usually have some weakness that can be improved with specific targeted workouts. The activities and exercises used can help to increase mobility and to relieve pain and discomfort. Rehabilitation therapy also helps to improve a patient’s physical function. The goal is to make it easier for a patient to complete necessary, everyday tasks and activities. The practitioners at In Touch NYC Physical Therapy believe that the patient plays an integral role in recovery and rehabilitation, and work diligently to educate their patients about how to treat and care for themselves at home.

These patients will often have to rebuild their strength or relearn how to complete some physical tasks and movements.
