Effective Physical Therapy in North Houston
When you get injured, immediate treatment of your injury is only the first step to complete recovery. After you have received an injury diagnosis and gotten the proper care for it, the next step is to see an orthopedic doctor. Through orthopedic therapy, our doctors will make sure you not only go through rehabilitation for your injured muscles but also strengthen them for injury prevention in the future. Get in touch with KSF Orthopaedic Center of North Houston today if you’ve recently suffered an injury and would like to get on the road to recovery.
In order to get the right type of orthopedic care for you, we at KSF Orthopaedic Center have magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) services available, so our doctors can get a thorough look at what they’re dealing with. MRIs can provide an orthopedic surgeon with views of soft tissue (such as tendons and muscles), as well as hard tissue (such as bones). MRIs are a great way for you to get proper orthopedic treatments since they are safe, painless, and noninvasive; plus, unlike x-rays, MRIs do not involve the use of radiation, which makes it an even safer procedure.
Once you’ve gotten a thorough injury diagnosis from our doctors, physical therapy is usually the next step in orthopedics. Physical therapy not only helps you recover faster from an injury, but it also strengthens your muscles for effective injury prevention. Once you’ve had a certain type of injury, it becomes easier for it to happen again in the future; physical therapy aims to stop that from happening. We have five full-time licensed physical therapists and three full-time occupational therapists on staff who will give you the best orthopedic care in all of North Houston.
