General Orthopedics

Reducing pain, restoring mobility, and preventing injury.

Physical therapists = movement experts.

Orthopedic physical therapy at Ideal Motion focuses on the treatment or rehabilitation of injuries to the orthopedic system, which includes muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments.

PTs are trained to be front line healthcare interventionists. When you have a musculoskeletal problem, you want to seek treatment from the most experienced and highly trained individual—much like finding a surgeon who specializes in your procedure!

Beat pain with movement!

Nearly one-quarter million knee replacement surgeries are performed each year, often the result of some form of arthritis.


Experience, specialization at Ideal Motion

When it comes to orthopedic care, you’ll want to find a physical therapist who has worked with hundreds if not thousands of cases. But experience alone isn’t enough. Physical therapists have the opportunity to gain additional training and specialization after graduating, such as becoming a Board Certified Clinical Specialist in Orthopedics or participating in Fellowship training that is recognized by the AAOMPT and APTA.

Specialty training requires hundreds of additional hours and mentorship from more experienced clinicians as well as a rigorous testing and evaluative process that results in a more efficient and effective physical therapist. This PT can provide you effective treatment that is supported by current research and yields results, ultimately saving you time and money.
