Physical Therapy Q & A

Peninsula Orthopedic Associates

Why do I need physical therapy?

The human body is an incredibly complex system that’s designed to provide you with freedom of movement. When one area breaks down, the effect can be widespread, limiting your life in ways you hadn’t considered until an injury or musculoskeletal condition develops.

While an orthopedist helps you address the underlying problem, a physical therapist covers the next steps in getting you back to an active and healthy lifestyle as safely and quickly as possible. Physical therapy is designed to help you regain your mobility, restore your range of motion, and strengthen your weakened or injured area in order to prevent re-injury or further complications.

With their unique understanding of the human body, physical therapists have the training and expertise to help guide you back from an injury, surgery, or degenerative disease with the goal of restoring your quality of life.

Where do I go for physical therapy?

The orthopedists at Peninsula Orthopedic Associates work diligently to diagnose and treat your musculoskeletal problem and then turn to physical therapy to take you the rest of the way. Rather than relying on outside physical therapists, Peninsula Orthopedic Associates partnered with Measurement Driven Rehabilitation Systems, Inc., and opened up a rehabilitation clinic in 2011 in order to serve the needs of their ever-growing patient community.

For your convenience the clinic is located at the neighboring Serramonte Business Center, making it easier for you to negotiate your recovery without traveling to many different offices.

How does physical therapy work?

The doctors work closely with the physical therapists, forming a team that provides you with the personalized care you need. The physical therapy at Peninsula Orthopedic Associates includes:

  • Assessments and evaluations with one-on-one care
  • Individualized home exercise programs
  • Kinesio tape, including RockTape®
  • Athletic training services
  • Negative pressure myofascial decompression

The goal of the physical therapy is to help you recover in a way that provides you with long-term success. Your physical therapist knows exactly which areas to work on and when to push and when to hold back in order to allow your body to heal properly.

The work you do with your physical therapist is an invaluable component in your overall treatment plan. By following their recommendations, you can get back to living your life with fewer limitations and less pain. To accommodate a wide range of patients, some physical therapists also speak Spanish.
