FCO Physical Therapy has been a critical component of service and complete patient care at Florida Center for Orthopaedics since its inception.
The professional PT staff offers first-rate care for effective results. Treatment is based on proven, evidence-based techniques that have been shown to achieve the highest levels of success and comfort for the patient.
FCO Physical Therapy offers one-on-one care to the patients. Many of the patients are amazed at what a difference manual (hands on) physical therapy can make. Our skilled therapists provide a thorough evaluation with each patient and seek to identify and treat the source of the pain. Each patient can expect to be actively involved in their treatment plan and each program is tailored to meet the patient’s individual needs and goals.
Patient populations commonly treated at FCO include postsurgical patients, sports related injuries, and auto and work related accidents. FCO also performs advanced biomechanical assessments, postural assessments and casts of the feet for custom orthotics. Treatment methods commonly used include manual therapy, massage therapy, myofascial techniques, and mobilization and muscle energy techniques, therapeutic exercise as well as other modalities used for pain control.
Physical therapy helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities and patient’s suffering from injuries or disease. Physical therapists restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health.
Physical therapy is concerned with identifying and maximizing movement potential, within the spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. It involves the interaction between physical clients, families and caregivers, in a process of assessing movement potential and in establishing agreed upon goals and objectives using knowledge and skills unique to physical therapists.
As treatment continues, physical therapists document the patient’s progress, conduct periodic examinations, and modify treatments when necessary. Besides tracking the patient’s progress, such documentation identifies areas requiring more or less attention.
