Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists are highly educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility – in many cases allowing them to avoid surgery and reduce their need for long term medications. At TOS, we employ therapists who prefer to focus on manual or hands-on techniques for therapy. They play an important role both before and after surgery in making sure our patients have the best possible outcome. As a patient, you have the right to choose where to complete your therapy. If you complete it here in our clinic, your therapist can be in direct contact with your surgeon and help stay in communication with him regarding your progress.
