Our Approach

Our orthopedic physical therapists will evaluate your injury and create a treatment program to get you back to the activities you love. Your program may include:

  • Supervised and self-guided exercises to reduce pain and improve your strength, fitness, coordination, and flexibility
  • Balance and body awareness training to help you understand your body and how you move
  • Exercises that simulate day-to-day activities to help you to learn safe movement patterns
  • Education to teach you self-care techniques and skills to improve your understanding of body mechanics
  • Strategies to increase your daily physical activity, which research shows helps reduce your risk of re-injury
  • Massage and muscle/joint manipulation
Specialized programs

M Health Fairview also offers specialized physical therapy for a wide variety of orthopedic areas. We not only treat those who are injured, but we also help to improve the body mechanics of those who are healthy. These programs are staffed with physical therapists who have additional training and design programs to meet each patient's unique needs.
