Physical Therapy is an essential part of the recovery for many patients who have had orthopaedic conditions, injuries or surgeries, and at Castle Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, S. C., we have assembled a team of experts to help guide you through your rehabilitation when it is needed. The physical therapists on staff have a combined experience of over 100 years. They are a very collegial group who have a variety of practice experiences allowing ideas and experiences to be freely exchanged for the benefit of the patients. There are a number of characteristics that set our physical therapy department apart from others:
Expertise – Your therapist is a specialist in outpatient orthopaedic rehabilitation. While his or her initial training included a wide range of treatments and conditions (stroke rehab, burn rehab, etc.) your therapist has chosen to professionally focus in one area. The therapists all routinely attend continuing education programs to keep their skill at the cutting edge of their specialization.
Individuality – Except in the case of illness or vacation, you’ll have one therapist working with you throughout your course of treatment. You won’t be bumped around from therapist to therapist.
Professionalism - We don’t have physical therapy aides or assistants so each time you attend therapy your care will be provided by a licensed, registered professional physical therapist.
Experience – After working with our orthopaedic patients for years, our therapists have a keen knowledge of the routines and preferences of each surgeon in the practice as well as how patients routinely progress through their course of treatment. Thus they can readily recognize deviations from routine expectations and adjust the therapy course accordingly or, if necessary, conveniently consult with the physician right on site.
Search far and wide but you will be hard-pressed to find a better group of professionals dedicated to helping you achieve your maximum rehabilitation potential than the group waiting to meet you at Castle Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, S.C.
