We’re now welcoming new members at our San Francisco clinic, right in SoMa.
If you’re a clinician who wants to refer patients with musculoskeletal issues, we’d love to help.
Just curious and excited about what we’re building? Sign up to receive big announcements.
A physical therapist is a movement expert who treats people of all ages and abilities, helping them improve and maintain function and quality of life. Physical therapists create individual treatment plans to match each person’s goals, helping people improve their fitness and function, avoid surgery, reduce the use of opioids and other drugs, and partner in their own care.
Physical therapists treat musculoskeletal (MSK) issues — conditions that affect muscles, bones, and joints, including pre-operative, non-operative, and post-operative injuries.
The types of musculoskeletal healthcare services that a clinician is authorized to provide differ based on specialty. At Motion, a physical therapist brings specific strengths to the clinical team.
Evaluate the musculoskeletal system and recognize deficits in mobility, stability, or strength and how those factors may be contributing to a given diagnosis.
Perform various hands on or instrument assisted therapies to soft tissue structures including myofascial release or stretching to assist with pain, swelling, muscle tension, or other restrictions.
Educate individuals about the science and nature of pain and how it relates to mobility and recovery.
Prescribe focused exercises aimed to correct imbalances or strengthen injured/weak body regions to aid in rehabilitation and recovery.
