Physical therapy is a known benefit in treating many orthopedic and neurologic conditions. In humans, it is considered a mandatory and routine intervention before, after, or in lieu of surgery once a diagnosis is made.
Rehabilitation exercises improve joint mobility, and post-operative patients have an earlier return to function when rehabilitation is incorporated into their treatment regimen.
Rehabilitation exercises also may delay the progression of non-surgical diseases and maintain quality of life for affected patients.
With goals centered around service, teaching, and research, the physical rehabilitation services team takes a translational approach to discovering and leveraging the most effective rehabilitation techniques for our patients.
