Musculoskeletal problems are often accompanied by physical limitations and pain which can make it challenging to enjoy everyday life. The physical therapy specialists at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics are experts in helping patients regain the ability to handle simple daily tasks and return to activities of living and recreation.

They focus on restoring function to patients with joint and muscle conditions, like sore shoulders, back and neck pain, tendinitis, pinched nerves, and complex orthopedic, occupational, and sports injuries, as well as degenerative conditions. At Sierra Pacific Orthopedics, we provide comprehensive care that integrates many specialty areas.

To help provide the widest variety of comprehensive musculoskeletal treatment and care, Sierra Pacific Orthopedics houses a specialized outpatient physical therapy facility.

The 15,000-square-foot free-standing unit is dedicated to the treatment of orthopedic injuries and postoperative rehabilitation. The heart of the unit is a spacious gym area with ten adjoining private treatment rooms. This therapy unit contains state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment, including a Biodex System 3 testing and rehabilitation device. An indoor pool for hydrotherapy exercises, gait training, and deep-water running for patients with restricted weight-bearing abilities is located within the building.

Certified hand therapists (CHT) work closely with our hand surgeons to provide a progressive approach to your rehabilitation. In addition, pre and postoperative rehabilitation programs are tailored to the individual patient’s needs. In short, our team physical therapists utilize their skills and experience to optimize your recovery from injury or surgery.
