While your annual physical by your primary care physician is very important, is not specifically catered to your musculoskeletal system. Physical therapists are experts in biomechanical assessments of the body. Whether you are in pain or not, A physical therapist can help make sure that you have no underlying issues that might stop you from doing the activities you are passionate about.
During your yearly Musculoskeletal Check up, we’ll screen your general body and joint range of motion, flexibility and strength, and perform more specific assessments as needed based on your screen results. If necessary, we’ll provide a corrective exercise program, activity modifications, or plan of care. An annual check-up truly is preventative maintenance for your musculoskeletal system. Your check-up is completely individualized and customized to you and your daily activities and goals.
