Physical Therapy and Home Exercise
Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Fayetteville, North Carolina specializes in the treatment of many different types of bone, muscle and joint injuries and illnesses. While we do offer diagnostic testing on-site, such as bone density testing and x-ray services, we offer them so that we can get to the root of a client’s pain and suffering in their body. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff provides exceptional care to our clients with the goal of optimal health in mind. In order to achieve that, we employ several different types of treatment including physical therapy in our office locations through regular appointments.
Physical therapy in general is a very hands-on way to heal a person. Our real goal is to be able to come up with and implement a plan of action to treat that pain through physical therapy. Physical therapy can look like a lot of things. It could mean strengthening exercises, joint mobilization, stretching, soft tissue release, athletic conditioning, pain management and more. Some clients are surprised to find out that their physical therapy plan also includes homework.
Here are some physical therapy exercises that you might be asked to do at home:
- Flexibility Exercises: Stretching at home multiple times a day with a towel or belt or your own body weight.
- Strengthening Exercises: Using bands, small weights, or household items.
- Ice Therapy: To reduce inflammation and ease pain
