Physical Therapy Treatment in Dallas, Garland, Plano, Richardson, Frisco


Orthopedic Physical Therapy - Dallas - Fort Worth, TX

Because physical therapy plays an important role in the healing process, Dr. Torrance Walker may use some combination of physical therapy and nonsurgical treatment to maximize patient rehabilitation and convenience. He works closely with nearby rehabilitation specialists to achieve the best possible results, since many athletic hip injuries do not require surgery and can be treated with nonsurgical therapy interventions.

This “team” approach helps produce an effective program to help you recover faster and prevent reinjury as you reach your optimal level of performance. Some therapy treatment options available include:

  • Manual therapy
  • Physical therapy modalities
  • TENS & ultrasound
  • Strength & cardiovascular training
  • Custom bracing & orthotics

Who can benefit from orthopedic physical therapy?

Anyone who has suffered a musculoskeletal (bone, joint, ligament) injury or condition can benefit from physical therapy. You don’t have to be a competitive athlete either. Physical therapy can help people of all ages and activity levels who have:

  • Broken, sprained or fractured bones
  • Torn ligaments
  • Sports or work injuries
  • Overuse injuries from repetitive motions
  • Postsurgical rehab needs
  • Arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis
  • Nerve injuries and conditions

Physical therapists are experts in human anatomy and physical movement. They can use a variety of techniques – from hands-on manual therapy to ultrasound – to help reduce your pain and make you stronger and more flexible so you can perform the usual activities of daily living.

When should you consider orthopedic physical therapy?

Do you have an injury that is preventing you from working, playing your favorite sport or just getting through a normal day? Do you have a musculoskeletal condition such as tendonitis or arthritis that is causing you pain and limiting or keeping you from your favorite activities? That’s when you should consider orthopedic physical therapy. Orthopedic physical therapy focuses on relieving your pain and restoring your function. Best of all, it does not require taking drugs or undergoing invasive surgery. In some cases, orthopedic physical therapy can even help you get off meds or avoid surgery entirely.

If you have questions about orthopedic physical therapy or you would like to learn how it can benefit you, talk to an orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Walker can answer all your questions and help you find the right physical therapist for your specific needs.
