Physical Therapy

Want to Speed up The Recovery and Get Back to Business?

A specialized physical therapist can work with you to integrate your neurological and cardiovascular systems with your musculoskeletal system to treat your condition or injury holistically. The Spencer Orthopedic team has physical therapists that are highly skilled in helping you get back on track after an accident, illness, or surgery.

Physical therapy falls under the non-surgical treatment options alongside injection therapy. These are minimally invasive treatment options that don’t require a surgical solution with complex recovery. Non-operative treatment is normally the first step for less severe conditions and injuries to avoid unnecessary surgical operations.
