Physical therapists are licensed healthcare professionals who help patients rehabilitate from injury and recover from pain. Their knowledge includes extensive study of human anatomy, physiology and movement as it pertains to function. You may be a candidate for physical therapy if you have been experiencing pain, impaired movement, weakness, or other physical issues. People may also be required to undergo rehabilitation as a result of a traumatic injury or elective/non-elective surgery.
Conditions and injuries treated include but are not limited to:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Shoulder Labral Tears
- Hip, knee or shoulder replacement
- ACL reconstruction surgery
- Low back pain
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
- Femoral acetabular impingement
- Achilles Tendon Repair
- Meniscal tears
- Ankle sprains
- Tommy John Surgery
An initial visit includes a physical evaluation in which Dr. Lee performs an assessment of the patient and devises a plan of care to return the patient to healthy functional movement. Treatment is rendered according to the plan of care and patients are prescribed an initial home exercise program to perform on their own to improve progress. Follow-up visits may include additional therapeutic exercise instruction, application of manual therapy, and continuous patient education on injury management and including any necessary home exercise program modifications.
