Optim Orthopedics physical and occupational therapists provide a continuum of care from inpatient care in the hospital to outpatient services close to home to treat patients with both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. These may include joint and muscular pain as a result of injury, disease, or degenerative processes. Our experienced staff utilize a variety of treatment approaches and philosophies to help each patient reach their full functional potential. Physical therapists and occupational therapists are part of an inter-disciplinary team of medical professions that consult with physicians, case management, nursing, vocational rehab, speech pathology, athletic trainers and orthotics and prosthetic specialists.

A physical or occupational therapy evaluation is the first step in the rehabilitation process. The evaluation identifies areas of deficit, including strength, range of motion and functional abilities. An individualized treatment plan is established which will address areas of deficiency and will work to achieve the patient’s own goals for treatment. Treatment plans can include, pain reduction/management, manual therapy techniques, restoration of motion and strength through exercise, education, and functional training.
