Orthopedic Physical Therapy
Orthopedics is the treatment of the musculoskeletal system as well as the peripheral nervous system. This includes skeletal muscles, bones, joints, and parts of the nervous system that control movement.
Physical Therapists receive their clinical doctorates after years of post-graduate education and are trained as generalists. With years of clinical practice in one treatment setting, a physical therapist can then further specialize with board accreditations. All ASM therapists have dedicated their careers to the practice of orthopedics and have committed to the life-long learning of musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
Most sports injuries are orthopedic in nature, and therefore return to sport rehab falls under the umbrella of orthopedics. However, the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists further designates sports rehab as a specialty because of the advanced knowledge required to return an athlete to a high level of physical performance. At ASM, we pride ourselves in having the versatility of working with athletes of all ability levels and our therapists have added return to sport rehabilitation to their repertoire.
