Healing from an orthopedic injury or surgery almost always requires some type of physical therapy.
While your body may be excellent at healing with time after proper orthopedic treatment, to heal quickly and completely, with less pain and greater range of motion – there’s no beating the benefits of physical therapy. In some cases, physical therapy can even help you delay or avoid surgery altogether.
