Conditions Commonly Treated at Accelerate Physical Therapy, P.C.:

Soft Tissue Injuries
A muscle, tendon or ligament injury can bleed or swell, and effects your recovery time. Cold, compression, heat, massage and electrical methods will speed your healing and return to normal activities.

Inflammatory Conditions
Overuse causes tendon and ligament tissue to become irritated, causing pain in movement and at rest. Your independent treatment and exercises can accelerate your recovery. Your physician may have also prescribed medications to reduce the inflammation. Your physical therapist is an expert in providing treatments to reduce inflammation.

Post-Operative Rehabilitation
After orthopedic or general surgery, treatment to reduce inflammation, gait problems, impaired range of motion, muscle weakness and pain are addressed by a physical therapist to accelerate healing and yet protect surgically repaired tissues.

Neurological Injuries
Neurological injuries and diseases, including stroke, spinal cord injury, Multiple Sclerosis and acute nerve damage result in pain, numbness, loss of strength, daily functions and mobility. Physical therapists use techniques to overcome physical impairments restore function.
