Physical & Occupational Therapy

At CHRISTUS Orthopedic Specialty Center - Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute, physical and occupational therapy is available on-site to make orthopedic care as beneficial for the patient as possible. Physical and occupational therapists work with patients to help them return to their normal activities after an orthopedic injury or surgical procedure.

When Is Physical / Occupational Therapy Recommended?

Physical and occupational therapy may be recommended for a variety of orthopedic conditions, even when surgery is not necessary. The goals of physical therapy are to relieve pain, restore range of motion, and make it easier for patients to return to normal activities. Physical and occupational therapy may be recommended for any orthopedic injury or condition that causes pain, swelling, and decrease in strength and range of motion.

Physical and occupational therapy may be recommended as part of a nonsurgical treatment plan for injuries and conditions like sprains, strains, tendonitis, and arthritis. It is also commonly recommended following surgical procedures like rotator cuff repair, ligament repairs, ACL reconstruction, or joint replacement surgery, as well as wrist or hand surgeries and injuries.

What Is Involved With Physical / Occupational Therapy?

Therapy may involve a number of techniques to help patients with orthopedic conditions or injuries. Your physical therapist will evaluate you and devise a plan to best benefit you. This plan is tailored to the individual patient to meet his or her needs.

Exercise plays an important role in physical and occupational therapy. This may include stretching and strengthening exercises. As an adjunct, modalities may be used at the therapists’ discretion, such as heat/cold packs, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, cold laser, and lontophoresis.

Occupational therapy may include splints or bracing to assist with the healing process. A full-time on-site Certified Hand Therapist is available to take care of these needs.

Pool therapy is also available.

The department will treat patients under a physician’s referral, within the parameter of orthopedic conditions.
