Types of Physical Therapy
Just like the field of medicine, physical therapy has many specialty areas that can help patients with different types of injuries or diseases. The American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties recognizes these areas:
- Sports Physical Therapy
- Clinical Electrophysiology
Physical therapists use a combination of exercises and stretches to aid their patients. When these are combined with well-known relaxation and recuperation techniques, such as electro-stimulus and hot-cold treatments, physical therapists have a vast collection of activities for their patients to engage in.
A specialty in itself, Hand Therapy at the Boca Raton Orthopaedic Group provides treatment for a broad spectrum of conditions, ranging in diagnosis from arthritic conditions, to flexor tendon repair to complex fracture reconstruction, all under the supervision and guidance of a fellowship trained Orthopaedic Hand Surgeon.
