Your Top Physical/Occupational Therapists Across MA & RI

Physical therapy isn’t just a recommendation your orthopedic specialist may make following your surgery or treatment for an injury. It’s a vital part of your recovery process that ensures your success in restoring your body to full function. Without physical therapy, your body will have difficulty regaining the strength, flexibility, and mobility it had prior to your treatment.

FAQs on Physical Therapy

What are some of the most common orthopedic conditions that require physical therapy?

Physical therapy is incredibly helpful in helping the body heal from damage to the musculoskeletal system. Some of the most common musculoskeletal injuries we provide physical therapy for at Prima CARE include:

  • Fractures
  • Ligament sprains or tears
  • Tendonitis
  • Muscle strains

  • And more.

Is physical therapy necessary after orthopedic surgery?

Yes. Even though surgery is performed in order to heal your body, the fact remains that surgery is a type of trauma from which your body must heal. Physical therapy after surgery can help you minimize the amount of scar tissue that develops after your procedure, support your joint function and mobility, and prevent your body from losing muscle mass as a result of atrophy. Physical therapy can help you recover more quickly and more effectively from your surgery.

Do you accept insurance for physical therapy services?

At Prima CARE, we’re proud to accept insurance from a number of providers across the New England region, including for physical therapy services. If you have questions about your coverage or payment options, please feel free to reach out to our office staff.
