Fractures often take upwards of 8-12 weeks to heal, but your physician will be able to give you a better idea of the time frame they expect for your particular injury. After surgery, you will spend time focusing on control of pain and swelling, as well as maintaining range of motion in your other joints.

At Orthopedic Physical Therapy Institute we can help you get moving safely and effectively. Our physical therapists are licensed professionals with graduate degrees and clinical experience who examine, diagnose and treat or help prevent conditions that limit the body's ability to move and function in daily life.

Also referred to as PT's, a Physical Therapist focuses on the evaluation, management, and prevention of disorders of human motion. They are an important member of the rehabilitation team.
