Physical Therapy Month
McLean County Orthopedics is happy to celebrate the month of October as National Physical Therapy Month! Our physical therapy department at MCO implements research-based techniques to improve mobility, reduce pain, and prevent further disabilities. We offer a variety of programs and services dedicated to getting you back to the life you love!
- Return to Play Program
- The Return to Play program is perfect for athletes who get hurt while playing the game they love. Athletes with a sports-related injury have the option of a three, five, or seven-month program to ensure a full return to the sport. This program includes access to the wellness center to train and exercise independently and access to the performance center with individual and group professionally-led training. The program also includes the newest methods and technology, such as EMG data, 3D motion analysis, and functional movement system testing.
- Return to Work Program
- The Return to Work program is ideal for those who encountered a work-related injury. The program begins with acute therapy and advances to a more extended work conditioning program. We focus on the performance of all work-based tasks such as lift, carry, push, climb, or drag. Physically demanding jobs can have a high risk of physical injury; our patients come from demanding job areas from first responders to construction and everything in between.
- Aquatic Therapy
- Our Aquatic Therapy Program is an excellent alternative when patients need less-weight bearing therapy. Water therapy applies less pressure on joints allowing a much easier session. This program is sometimes added to other programs like our Return to Play or post-surgical patients. From the convenient location of our therapy center, your mobility can get back on track.
- Metabolic Testing
- Metabolic testing is offered to any patient in our therapy program with injuries from torn ACLs to knee replacements. This testing benefits all types of patients, from knee-replacements to torn ACLs. The test itself is completed on a stationary bike where the heart rate is monitored. During the process, our professionals will collect the information they need to establish patient-specific metabolic goals.
