Core Physical Medicine provides outpatient orthopedic physical therapy for clients in Madison County, Metro East area, and St. Clair County. Our outpatient treatment program helps relieve pain and increase strength in weakened or damaged areas of the body.
Physical therapy is a process of rehabilitation, of regaining strength and movement in the muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones after surgery, serious injury, or other recurring ailments. Physical therapy helps restore your range of motion and flexibility to areas of limited mobility.
Orthopedic outpatient physical therapy is ideal for anyone suffering from a loss of movement or strength in their muscles or bones. CORE Physical Medicine doctors commonly treat patients suffering from:
Orthopedic therapy blends workout routines and stretching with special equipment to build strength and increase the ease of movement. We typically facilitate one of two physical therapy workouts, closed-chain or proprioceptive. Closed-chain workouts help patients achieve muscular balance and strength. Proprioceptive workouts also focus on muscle strength, along with increased control, agility, and position awareness. Paired with these workouts, patients use equipment such as stationary bicycles, weightlifting machines, stretching machines and treadmills to rebuild a normal, functioning body. We also educate patients on how to manage their own workout routines beyond work with a therapist.
