Biodex Rehabilitation at Alliance Orthopedics
Biodex rehabilitation is a type of physical therapy that uses advanced technologies to help patients evaluate neurological and orthopedic injuries. Biodex rehabilitation is conducted by certified therapists who specialize in using this type of therapy to treat patients.
The Biodex system allows therapists to quickly identify, treat, and monitor a patient’s area of pain by offering diagnostic testing. The system uses an analysis of the patient’s movement to create a personalized treatment plan.
The therapist can then use the Biodex machine to target specific muscles and joints with exercises that are designed to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion. The Biodex machine combines science with state-of-the-art technology to create an effective and efficient rehabilitation experience for patients.
