Advanced Physical Therapy

Our orthopaedic physical therapists use specialized skills to assess and treat musculoskeletal injury and illness, prevent pain or further damage, train different muscles to compensate for ones that have been damaged and, ultimately, restore our patients’ ability to work, play and live as normally as possible.

In most cases, our patients are in physical therapy the day of surgery, which allows them to go home 1 or 2 days after surgery, depending on the treatment given and the patient’s overall health.

This was a second opinion more than anything. The Dr provided FAR more information than the first opinion Dr who was not part of USC. He answered every question and stayed until I was finished asking question. I did not feel like he was trying to rush me out to get to his next patient. His explanations were clear and concise and complete.
