Some musculoskeletal injuries can be successfully resolved conservatively with physical therapy (PT) instead of surgery. If PT alone does not resolve your issue, it may also be prescribed in conjunction with preparation for and/or rehabilitation after surgery.
When referred for physical therapy, our hands-on physical therapists will perform an evaluation and develop a treatment plan specific to your needs using exercise, modalities, and manual techniques. The focus is on teaching you how to heal yourself and get you back to activities as quickly as possible. Austin Sports Medicine’s in-house facility allows for continuous communication between the doctors and the physical therapists. Our physical therapists also offer sports-specific injury prevention evaluations to minimize the risk of injury by establishing or maintaining a reliable exercise program.
