Orthopedic & Sports Rehab

Research has proven that early rehabilitation can optimize a patient’s outcome from injury. At First Step Physical Therapy, we have over 15 years of combined experience diagnosing, treating, and progressing orthopedic patients to return to their prior level of function — whether it be the ability to walk to the corner store or the performance of a high-end athlete — as quickly and safely as possible. We work closely with the best general physicians, orthopedists, podiatrists, and prosthetists in the area for a comprehensive team approach to rehabilitation.

Your program will start with an in-depth evaluation to determine your individualized treatment needs. Early in your treatment program, we will provide, review, and train you in a home exercise program. After carefully discussing your condition and outcome expectations with you, we will work together to come up with a plan of care. As you progress through your program, we advance with your individualized treatment goals and needs in mind.

By the time you are discharged, you will have a keen understanding of your ongoing treatment plan. You will leave with a home exercise plan along with the option of staying on and utilizing our facility as a place to exercise with our staff readily available to answer your questions. Our skilled First Step Therapists will provide treatment and guidance throughout your rehabilitation process using a hands-on, skilled approach to physical therapy—treating you as an individual.
