Physical Therapy Q&A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a practice focused on determining the root cause of musculoskeletal issues and working to restore optimal joint function. This approach also helps you learn to listen to the messages your body is sending to help avoid overuse or overextension injuries. 

Promoting regular physical activity is a primary focus of physical therapy. Finding ways to remain active using proper techniques and form can go a long way toward keeping your joints healthy and strong. 

What happens during physical therapy visits?

The initial stage of physical therapy involves a thorough assessment and evaluation. You share the details of your personal and family health histories, including an overview of any conditions that have required treatment as well as current medications and supplements. 

Your flexibility, posture, and movement are checked, allowing your therapist at COSMO to create a customized treatment plan. As you move forward, you always have the guidance and support of your physical therapy team. 

Targeted stretches and exercises form the bulk of your physical therapy visits. The program may be challenging, but it’s intended to enhance your strength and joint function. You also learn how to continue your progress on your own at home, which empowers you to take control of your own joint health.

How will I know my physical therapy is working?

Colorado Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics is proud to offer Vald Performance ForceDecks, an innovative system that analyzes your neuromuscular strength and imbalance. This technology uses dual force plates you stand on while engaging in exercise. 

The system assesses any asymmetries in your movement and quickly delivers results with just one click. You simply go through a prescribed series of motions, and your therapist receives data on how well your body is functioning. 

Harnessing these measurable results allows your practitioner to alter your therapy plan to reduce the risk of injury and enhance performance.
