The human body is a complex system of high cellular structure. Physical medicine focuses on the musculoskeletal system, which is responsible for the most intricate movements related to the central nervous system. Made up of 206 bones, the human skeleton is supported by structures that anchor muscles, called tendons. Ligaments, which are strong fibers, attach bone to bone and are responsible for the stability and reinforcement of a joint. The function of a particular muscle depends on the integrity of the joint it is associated with. Our Physical Therapy Department uses a variety of diagnostic tools to assess your complex musculoskeletal system. Whether you enjoy running, tennis, golf, swimming, volleyball, soccer, football, basketball or baseball, take advantage of our preventative injury programs.
