Did you know?

Research has proven that quadriceps strengthening exercises included in an exercise program are effective in the improvement of pain, function and quality of life aspects with knee osteoarthritis.  Arthritis effects approximately 1/3 of all adults and the numbers increase with age.

After suffering an ankle sprain, you’re 2x as likely to injure that ankle again.  Physical therapy can reduce that risk up to 90%.  (Hupperets et al, The BMJ 2009)

Getting physical therapy first helps 60-70% of patients with knee arthritis avoid surgery. (N Engl J Med. 2013)
