Orthopedic Therapy

Orthopedic therapy focuses on the recovery of your muscles, joints, soft tissues and bones. If you are suffering from pain or breakdown, Boone Hospital’s orthopedic physical and occupational therapists can help. They are specially trained to help restore your mobility and strength. During your one-on-one session, you can expect your therapist to discover the cause of your pain and design a specific treatment program to reach your movement goals. Your therapist will use a variety of personalized exercises and manual techniques to address your areas of concern and get you back to the activities you love sooner. We are grateful to be a critical step on your road to recovery.

In addition to traditional orthopedic therapy, Boone offers the following specialized treatments:


Dry Needling involves inserting a very thin needle into muscle tissue to affect change at a neuromuscular level. While the use of needles can be intimidating, Boone’s highly skilled physical therapists are specially trained in the use of dry needling to speed up your recovery process with minimal discomfort. It provides quicker and longer lasting relief than many traditional treatments. Dry needling has been shown to:

  • Decrease pain and muscle tension
  • Improve blood flow
  • Positively affect changes in the central nervous system
  • Decrease nerve hypersensitivity
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Accelerate healing time


Blood Flow Restriction Therapy is a specialized treatment that promotes quicker and more significant strength gains than regular strength training alone. It places less strain on joints and soft tissues and can be used to speed up recovery after injury or surgery.

During a blood flow restriction training session, specially trained physical therapists will place a tourniquet cuff on a limb and guide you through a specific exercise regimen. The pressure applied is specific and monitored throughout each exercise to ensure patient safety. The restricted blood flow to the limb forces muscles to work harder and creates greater strength gains with lower loads.

In studies, blood flow restriction therapy resulted in more muscle mass, more endurance, and more strength with less resistance. Reach out to your physician to see if blood flow restriction training with a Boone therapist is the right option for you.
