Orthopedic Therapy

We have highly qualified clinicians in every region, many with board-certified specialties.

We use an individualized approach with all of our patients to empower each person with confidence, knowledge, and effective treatment strategies with the goal of reducing their dependency on medication, reducing healthcare costs, and reducing disability.

What is Orthopedic Therapy?

At OSF Rehabilitation, our physical and occupational therapists evaluate and treat all orthopedic conditions, from stable acute injuries to sub-acute and chronic conditions. 

In addition, we also help post-operative patients restore function and quality of life, using post-surgical protocols, when appropriate.

OSF Rehabilitation evaluates and treats many orthopedic problems. Orthopedic refers to muscles, joints, bones, ligaments and tendons of the back, neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot.

Common orthopedic conditions include osteoarthritis, tendonitis, muscle strains, ligament strains, bursitis, healed fractures, joint replacements, post-operative conditions and more.

We will help you get back to life by working on strength, flexibility, endurance and independence to achieve your goals.
