Physical Therapy

Tucson Orthopaedic Institute physical therapists are experts in sports medicine, strength and conditioning, athletic training, spine, and hand therapy. Working closely with Tucson Orthopaedic physicians, we design individual exercise programs to expedite the rehabilitation process and maximize function. We also provide hands-on manual therapy to improve your mobility.

We have five conveniently located Tucson physical therapy centers with extended appointment hours to match your busy schedule.

Surgery versus Therapy

Our philosophy is to avoid surgery, if possible. Often that can best be accomplished if we help our patients strengthen weak muscles, improve posture, or learn how to lift properly. Sometimes a brace, rest, or a home exercise program is needed. When surgery is warranted, surgeons and therapists design a comprehensive rehabilitation plan that addresses the details of the procedure and assures a speedy, long-lasting recovery.

Physical therapy at Tucson Orthopaedic Institute offers several advantages for patients:

QUALITY THERAPISTS: More than 21 licensed clinicians bring over 220 years of combined orthopaedic rehabilitation experience to Tucson. Tucson Ortho's commitment to continuing education creates a rehab team with the latest knowledge.

ON-SITE CARE/BETTER COMMUNICATION: Your physical therapist will have direct access to your orthopaedic physician and staff, and he or she can seek direct counsel as well as report your progress. This type of cooperative communication can maximize results for you because your therapist understands your physician's goals, timelines, and protocols better than any other physical therapist can.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY: With state-of-the-art equipment, including a comprehensive aquatic therapy program, therapists can confidently meet even the most complex orthopaedic needs.

  • General Orthopaedic Physical Therapy
  • Pre/Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
  • Neck and Spine Therapy
  • Aquatic Therapy
  • Lymphedema Care
  • Sports Medicine
