The team at Summit Orthopedic Specialists are happy to be their California patients’ physical therapists, helping to address illnesses or injuries limiting a person’s ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Physical therapy addresses a variety of issues, evaluating and treating any abnormal physical function related to illness, injury, disability, or other conditions.
Physical therapy is the process of taking care of patients in all stages of healing, including the initial diagnosis to determine what method would be best for the situation at hand and through every restorative and preventative stage of recovery. While many patients are referred to a physical therapy provider by their doctor, many often seek therapy independently. Physical therapy can also be utilized as a standalone option or may even support other treatments.
There is a broad spectrum of benefits provided by physical therapy, from pain management resulting in a reduced need for opioids and medication even to avoid surgery.
Patients also include those recovering from various injuries, trauma, or victims of stroke or paralysis. Over time, physical therapists can even help their patients with gaining fall prevention due to improved balance.
Physical therapy is best performed when customized and personalized to each person. Anyone with pain in their shoulders or knees or even their spine can be a candidate.
We understand how important your active lifestyle or even your everyday physical activities are to living a life you love, and Summit Orthopedic Specialists want to ensure you can get back to the action as soon as possible!
The main focus of physical therapy is recovery. Procedures can vary significantly from person to person. Whether it is a bone issue, a muscular issue, or a nerve issue, there are a tremendous amount of options that you can select to make your recovery happen as quickly and safely as possible. Physical Therapy helps you to get back to a life you’ll be excited to live. We also know that collaborating with our patients throughout their physical therapy sessions is key to a successful recovery.

We make sure to spend adequate time with our patients and treat them with the highest respect as we provide clear explanations of the treatments we utilize and allow you to be involved in the decisions.
