Benefits of physical therapy

Physical therapy is not exclusively for people suffering from injuries or disease, it can benefit everyone. Many people resort to medication for pain that could be alleviated at least partially by the right physical therapy treatments.  

Physical therapy can also improve mobility and help prevent injuries. Moriarty Physical Therapy is here to help all members of the Cary, North Carolina community, and other nearby communities like Apex, NC, stay active and get back to their pre-injury/surgery selves. 

Types of physical therapy

Moriarty Physical therapy has a highly trained team of doctors on staff to treat a wide variety of issues for people in Cary, North Carolina. These physical therapy specialties include, but are not limited to:  


Orthopedic physical therapy involves treating bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Common surgical and non-surgical injuries treated by orthopedic physical therapy can include fractures, strains, tears, and sprains. The doctors at Moriarty Physical Therapy have experience in treating all types of orthopedic issues for people in the Cary, North Carolina area.

Orthopedic physical therapy is also frequently needed both before and after surgery. Few people are aware that orthopedic rehabilitation therapy can also be used pre-surgery. Pre-surgical orthopedic physical therapy can help increase your recovery time and reduce post-surgery discomfort. 


As we age, mobility can become more difficult. Geriatric physical therapy can help the elderly improve their mobility and physical functions. This includes common issues like osteoporosis and arthritis. Geriatric physical therapy is also vital for seniors who have had surgeries like a hip replacement.
