Our Services

Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation

At Carrell Clinic, our professional physical therapy and rehabilitation staff is composed of physical therapists specializing in orthopaedic and sports rehabilitation. Our goal is to provide the highest quality services to each of our clients by combining clinical knowledge from our practitioners and support from all staff members. We strive to enable each patient to function independently in work, home, or athletic activity. In addition to physical rehabilitation, we offer a wellness program under the direction of a personal trainer. The wellness program consists of private training sessions, age management classes, weight loss prior to joint replacement, ACL management after physical therapy, and employee group classes. For more information, please call one of our two offices.

Appointments and Suggested Clothing

Please bring your physical therapy prescription to your first appointment for an evaluation of your current condition. Operative reports, X-rays, MRI scans, and pictures are also helpful. Upon completion of the initial evaluation, the therapist will create a plan of care for your diagnosis and a schedule of follow-up appointments. We are open from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Fridays. For cancellations, please call our office as soon as possible. Your diagnosis will determine the type of clothing and shoe wear needed for your appointment (or visit). Bringing a pair of loose-fitting shorts, a T-shirt, and athletic shoes is usually sufficient. The clinic will also supply a gown if necessary.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is one of the foremost treatment modes of recovery. It is often adopted before surgery as a nonsurgical treatment for various musculoskeletal injuries and diseases. Therapy facilitates improved flexibility, strength, movement, coordination, endurance, balance, and pain management by teaching safe stretching, conditioning, and strengthening exercise techniques.

The different modalities of physical therapy include exercise, hot or cold packs, ultrasound, electrical nerve stimulation, manual therapy, diathermy, massage, and aqua therapy. You are also educated on activities to avoid, such as twisting movements and excessive weight lifting, as well as proper body mechanics. 

There are two different forms of physical therapy, active and passive. Active physical therapy includes physical exercise or stretching, whereby the patient uses their own force to reduce pain. Passive physical therapy is where the modalities are done to the patient by the therapist.

A physical therapist tailors each exercise program to the individual's necessities and goals.


Rehabilitation is a method of treatment designed to facilitate recovery after a serious injury, illness, or surgery by restoring your physical, psychological, intellectual, sensory, and social functions. With rehabilitation, you are able to return to your normal life through therapy and training.

Rehabilitation can include a preoperative program, where you are prepared physically and mentally for both the surgery and its outcomes, and a postoperative program that helps you heal faster and return to optimal health.

Various rehabilitation programs include:

  • Physical therapy: Physical therapy is a branch of rehabilitative medicine that uses specially designed exercises and equipment to help strengthen muscles and improve range of motion.

  • Occupational therapy: The main goal of occupational therapy is to enable you to resume your daily activities, regain lost skills, and learn adaptive techniques to lead an independent life.

  • Pain management: Pain management promotes physical activities to enhance the quality of life in those suffering from chronic pain conditions.
