Physical Therapy Treatment 

At Southland Orthopaedics, we take a compassionate, patient-focused approach to physical therapy. We develop special exercises, stretches and activities as the first phase in our treatment plan to relieve your pain. Our goal is to combat repetitive motion pain, heal your injuries, and strengthen weakened muscles, tendons and ligaments. We aim to make your pain disappear.

One of our board-certified orthopaedic surgeons will start by performing a thorough examination and physical assessment. Our licensed physical therapist, Tina DeLuca, will then develop a plan to restore your mobility and relieve your pain. Our goal is to ensure that you’re performing the activities correctly in our facility, carefully explain home exercises to you, and monitor your progress, providing comprehensive progress reports to your physician.
