Orthopedic physical therapy helps people recover from injuries of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, or bones. Therapy is focused on reducing pain, promoting healing, and improving flexibility and muscle function in order to bring you back to optimum health.


Physical therapy can help you optimize your recovery both before and after surgery. Before surgery, learning how to use a walker, crutches, or cane and improving your strength can help make post-surgical recovery smoother. After surgery, physical therapy guides you back to health through assisting in pain and swelling reduction, helping you safely regain strength and function. Common pre- and post-surgical diagnoses seen at Creative Therapeutics include knee, hip and shoulder replacements, rotator cuff repair, meniscus repair, spinal surgery, carpal tunnel releases, foot and ankle surgery.

Weekend warrior

Whether you need to elevate your game or just want to stay in shape enough to play with the kids, Creative Therapeutics can help you recover from those weekend warrior injuries such as ankle sprain, pulled muscles, tennis or golfer’s elbow. We can analyze mechanics and technique, helping you to keep playing at your highest level with less risk of injury.


The human spine performs intricate movements throughout the day. Anyone who has experienced back pain can attest to how difficult it can make daily activities. At Creative Therapeutics, treatment for back injuries, back pain, or following surgery starts with therapeutic relief for acute pain and determination of the root cause(s) of the injury. This is followed by gentle, supported exercise and building deep core muscle strength. Our mission is not only to help you recover but to provide you with lifelong tools needed to maintain a healthy back. Sciatica and chronic back pain are just a few of the diagnoses we treat.

Aches and Pains

If your level of comfort and ability is not what it used to be, you don’t have to “just accept it”—you can do something about it! Physical therapists are able to treat all manner of pain, from muscle soreness to joint pain, aching, or stiffness. Our physical therapists can help you return to a more pain-free, active lifestyle. Your therapist will evaluate your complaints and determine the cause(s). Old injuries, habits, muscle weakness, muscle imbalance, or restrictions of the tissues are often at the root of our aches and pains. You will be assisted through exercise, stretching, and manual techniques designed specifically for you to help you return your prior level of comfort. We frequently treat conditions such as muscle tension headaches, shoulder and upper back tension and pain, tennis and golfers elbow.


You have the right to choose where you go for treatment, and to tell your doctor or insurance company where you would like to receive treatment.
