Orthopedic Physical Therapy
Orthopaedics is the medical specialty dedicated to preserving and restoring function in the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. Orthopaedic physical therapy is the delivery of care for individuals with disorders or dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system.
You might benefit from physical therapy if you suffer from:
- Muscle weakness and imbalance
- Spinal and other joint alignment dysfunction
- Post-operative or inflammatory swelling
- Joint and muscle pain
- Tendonitis and bursitis
Manual Physical Therapy
Manual physical therapy is based on careful examination of the patient’s movement patterns, including range of motion issues and the subsequent overcompensation that can prevent healing. Research has shown that the most effective physical therapy treatments involve a combination of customized manual therapy interventions combined with targeted exercise.
Through manual physical therapy, you can find relief from:
- Low-back pain
- Neck pain
- Muscle-tension headaches
- Hip and knee osteoarthritis

Increase your mobility with aquatic therapy. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or dealing with another condition, give your body a full workout with resistance in the pool. Increase your range of motion by allowing the buoyancy of the water to reduce the effects of gravity, facilitating greater mobility while minimizing pain.
Frequently untreated, chronic pain symptoms include headache, lower back pain, arthritis pain, and neurogenic pain. SporTherapy focuses on two critical elements when it comes to alleviating your pain: education and movement. The combination of therapeutic neuroscience education (TNE) and movement plans designed to address your unique symptoms has had significant success in helping patients deal with persistent pain.
SporTherapy therapists are experts in treating the musculoskeletal system and can treat a wide variety of issues associated with pelvic pain, including painful intercourse, pain associated with tampon use or pelvic exams, difficulty with recreational activities, chronic constipation and pain in the groin, buttock, low back, hip, sacroiliac or abdomen.

Persistent pain, or chronic pain, is pain that last for weeks, months or years. For some, chronic pain is the result of an injury, like a sprained back, or an ongoing problem like arthritis. For others, chronic pain occurs in the absence of a past injury.

Helpful treatment strategies can include consistent gentle movements, relaxation techniques, and imagery activities.
