Align Your Body & Improve Your Health with Orthopedic Therapy

The body is designed to move, and it’s meant to do so without constant pain and discomfort.

Good alignment, with a balanced and level body, is crucial for healthy and pain-free movement. It forms the basis for our ability to move freely and with range. However, the bones, muscles, and joints that control our movement can weaken or become compromised. This can happen due to injury, trauma, or bad posture habits.

When a part of your body isn’t aligned correctly, it causes an uneven spread of weight and stress that can upset the whole system. This imbalance results in unnecessary fatigue, strain, or steadily growing discomfort. Over time, this can lead to chronic problems like back pain, neck pain, knee pain, or joint wear and tear, which persist until properly treated. 

Trade Pain and Limitations for Freedom of Movement

At GO PT, our therapists are experts in reading the body and identifying abnormal patterns. If there’s a problem in alignment and motion, they can diagnose it and create personalized treatment plans for care. Over the years, we’ve helped thousands of patients enhance their movement, decrease discomfort, and improve their quality of everyday life.

Common Problem Areas That Orthopedic Therapy Can Treat

Orthopedic Therapy can treat alignment and movement issues from head to toe. However, some areas of the body are more likely than others to need treatment and adjustments due to their constant twisting and weight bearing.

The typical areas include:

  • Spine: Misalignment like scoliosis, kyphosis, or lordosis, which affects the curvature of the spine.
  • Shoulders: Issues like rounded shoulders, winged shoulders, or muscle imbalances.
  • Hips: Conditions like hip dysplasia or misalignment due to uneven leg length.
  • Knees: Problems like genu valgum (knock-knees) or genu varum (bowlegs).
  • Feet and Ankles: Issues like flat feet, high arches, pronation, and supination.

Orthopedic Therapy Can Treat Joint Issues Too

Joints provide our body with mobility. When they move smoothly, you not only enjoy a greater range of motion but also greater control of your body. However, just like muscles and bones, joints can develop dysfunctions, which then become limitations on what you can and can’t do.

Orthopedic Therapy can offer significant relief for people suffering from joint problems, including common conditions like tendonitis and joint degeneration.

Additional conditions that can be treated are:

  • Achilles and patellar tendinitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Lateral and medial epicondylalgia (tennis and golfer’s elbow)
  • Knee and hip arthritis
  • Herniated or bulging spinal discs
  • Sacroiliac joint pain

Orthopedic therapy works to ease joint pain, enhance flexibility, and strengthen the surrounding muscles, providing increased support and stability.
