Exceptional Orthopedic Physical Therapy in Torrington and Bristol
Used typically as a nonsurgical treatment method, physical therapy (also known as physiotherapy or PT) involves hands-on techniques like manual therapy to actively treat patients with injuries or chronic pain related to medical conditions. You may need orthopedic physical therapy if a musculoskeletal condition is causing you pain or is limiting your movement.
Therapists trained in physical therapy are health professionals distinguished with a PT or DPT credential, depending on their level of education. The goal of physical therapists and physical therapist assistants is to make movement and activity easier, reduce pain, and restore function and strength. From a child athlete with a sprain to an adult with advanced arthritis recovering from a pelvic fracture, physical therapists help a broad range of patients feel better and return to their previous activities.
Our physical therapists specialize in orthopedic physical therapy and sports physical therapy, providing comprehensive therapy and rehabilitation services for any stage of the healing process. These services include conservative treatment, pre- and postoperative treatment, and spine care and management.

Our occupational therapists evaluate and develop individualized and occupation-based care plans. These plans are always designed to address the specific needs and treatment goals of our patients.

The goal of our therapists is to return our patients to better physical and mental health with pain-free daily living.
Our state-of-the-art occupational therapy department works together to provide patients with individualized nonsurgical and postsurgical rehabilitation programs to help patients restore joint and muscular function, strength, and range of motion.
