Physical Therapy

Get back to healthy.

Minimize pain, normalize function and provide a quick return to normal activities through physical therapy. A physical therapist is a medical professional who helps manage a wide range of conditions through physical medicine and rehabilitation. Increasing mobility is often a primary area of focus, as is disability prevention and pain management.

At Florida Medical Clinic, patients can consult with a physical therapist to discuss treatment options for many different conditions, including:

  • Bone and soft tissue disorders
  • Broken bones
  • Chronic pain syndromes
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle damage (myopathy)
  • Nerve damage (neuropathy)
  • Sports injuries
  • Strokes

In many cases, physiatrists can help patients acclimate to physical limitations, while maximizing the tasks that they can successfully complete. Florida Medical Clinic’s experienced physical therapists work hand in hand with our family doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, and other specialty physicians to provide patients with comprehensive, individualized care.

Many of our patients can benefit from the treatments available from our physical therapy department. Using pain management and rehabilitation techniques, a physical therapist can help you achieve a variety of goals, such as improving range of motion or reducing myofascial pain. Our physical therapists utilize the latest treatment options, including massage, soft tissue mobilization, and manipulation. Our physiatrists can also prescribe at-home exercise routines to further improve your physical abilities, or recommend adaptive equipment such as mobility aids.

Our physical therapy program allows patients to achieve optimal results and, in some cases, avoid surgery. General outpatient physical therapy for pre-op, post-op, and non-surgical patients is offered, as well as occupational therapy to aid in the development of small motor functions.

When you visit a physical therapist at Florida Medical Clinic, your electronic health record is immediately updated with test results, treatment plans, and other pertinent information. This record is accessible by all of our physicians and specialists, ensuring a seamless continuity of care at every visit. Should a physical therapist recommend that a patient consult with an orthopaedic surgeon, neurologist, speech pathologist, or other specialty care provider within Florida Medical Clinic, there will be no need to transfer records or obtain referrals.
