ORTHOPEDIC PROBLEMS

Back to your active life.

5/5
Susan is a miracle worker. She has worked on my hip and legs and feet. I had major surgery on my left foot which effected my gait and right hip When I first saw her, I could barely walk. After two visits, my hip had greatly improved. She is working on improving the effects of my operation which unbalanced my entire body. I highly recommend her to anyone who has any issues.

WHAT DOES THE TERM ORTHOPEDIC PHYSICAL THERAPY REFER TO?

Orthopedic physical therapy focuses on pain and dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system. This includes muscles and bones, as well as joints, ligaments, and tendons.

HOW WILL MY ORTHOPEDIC PROBLEM BE TREATED DIFFERENTLY FROM OTHER CLINICS?

Many other clinics address the part of the body with the pain or dysfunction one issue at a time.
  • For a knee problem, the therapist treats the knee;
  • For a shoulder problem, the shoulder.
This may sound logical, but… Your body is interconnected from head to toe and inside and out. AT BALTIMORE HOLISTIC PHYSICAL THERAPY, your assessment and treatment will address the whole body and how
  • Schehr understands that your knee is connected to the thigh and the leg
  • The thigh and the leg are connected at the other end to the hip and the ankle,
  • And so on and so forth.
Every muscle and ligament have at least two connections.  Wherever each attachment is, other structures are also attached.
  • Your body functions as a unit.
  • An injury or dysfunction of one part of the body will affect other parts.
Falls, strains, and sprains don’t only affect one area.  It’s more complicated than that.
  • Maybe, your injury causes you to limp, or not be able to extend your arm to reach upward.
  • This may result in other regions of the body working differently (incorrectly)
  • It will all be addressed at once
At Baltimore Holistic Physical Therapy, orthopedic problems, both old and new, are treated fully and efficiently, saving you time and money and getting you back to the things you enjoy.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

A:  Firstly, I don’t believe in doing what didn’t work before. Many physical therapy practices approach a problem by going to the painful region. Oftentimes, this is a very temporary fix. By taking a holistic, hands-on approach, I understand that your pain may be coming from another part of the body, or even have multiple sources, including posture. By individualizing your treatment, I concentrate on healing and re-balancing the body, to manage your pain and lessen the chance of it returning. Then, I teach you how to manage your posture and movement.

A: Treatments for headaches or other pain from a recent problem will generally benefit from 2 treatment sessions for the first 2 weeks, then 1 session per week. Older conditions will benefit from 2 treatment sessions for the first week and then 1 session per week. Wellness sessions to rebalance and optimize the body for healthy aging range from a single session every month to once every six months and will be recommended on an individual basis.

A: An initial evaluation will take 1 hour. (Scar adhesion or sinus treatments only require 45 minutes.) Most follow-up treatments will be done in 30 minute sessions; multiple body areas may require 45 minutes

A: Any heavy exercise or recreational program should be done prior to the physical therapy or wellness session and then not for 24 hours after, in order for the body to adjust itself to the changes in muscle balance.

A: I will teach you techniques to perform on yourself if there is a flare-up and instruct you on proper body mechanics and ergonomics.
