Physical Therapy at UOA

Physical therapy is an essential step in treating and recovering from musculoskeletal  injuries and many forms of surgery. It is the branch of rehabilitative medicine that focuses on helping patients regain or improve their strength, range of motion, cardiovascular function and other physical impairments.

Physical therapy is often a front-line treatment for a number of orthopedic conditions aimed at avoiding or delaying surgery. It is also an integral component of recovering from a large number of surgeries.  Our physical therapists will perform a thorough evaluation and design a custom rehabilitation program based on your impairments. You will receive one-to-one, hands-on care and be guided professionally through the rehabilitation process to get you back in the game.

What Is Physical Therapy Used For?

At University Orthopaedic Associates, our providers frequently recommend physical therapy for:

  • Preoperative rehabilitation
  • Postoperative recovery
  • Arthritis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Shoulder injuries: related to the rotator cuff, instability, tendinitis or impingement syndromes.
  • Knee injuries: specific to the ACL, meniscus, and patellofemoral joint
  • Back pain, neck pain and other spinal conditions

The Graston Technique

The Graston Technique is an advanced and highly effective form of treatment that employs the use of specialized instruments to both diagnose and treat soft tissue abnormalities. Physical therapists trained in the use of the Graston Technique run these instruments over the patient’s body and can more accurately feel where there is scar tissue and muscle or connective tissue tightness. Then, the therapist uses these instruments to break up the tight spots, leading to a reduction of pain and an increase in range of motion.

UOA’s director of physical therapy, Dino Pinciotti, PT, and physical therapist Ryan Kay, DPT, recently sought out and received training in using the Graston Technique. Dino and Ryan are now Graston Technique Preferred Providers. Their commitment to learning and growing in their craft is representative of UOA’s philosophy of remaining on the cutting edge of treatment to provide our patients with superior service.

If you are interested in being treated with the Graston Technique, or a healthcare provider has recommended physical therapy to treat a condition or recover from surgery, request an appointment at UOA.
