Heal injuries sooner and stay strong with physical therapy.
What is Physical Therapy?
Whether post-injury or post-surgical, physical therapy is an important step in the body’s rehabilitation process. Physical therapy is performed through a routine of professionally coached exercises and stretches, along with other methods.
The aim of physical therapy is to safely reintroduce mobility and gradually restore the function of an injured body part, such as the spine. Of course, the ultimate goal is to make a full recovery and achieve the functionality that was enjoyed pre-injury. However, the extent to which recovery is possible depends on the severity of the injury as well as many other factors.
Goals of physical therapy include:
- Restoring range of motion
- Increasing mobility
- Reducing pain
- Promoting recovery and well-being
- Preventing further injury or re-injury
Since each patient is unique, our physical therapists customize a treatment plan to suit the individual needs and circumstances of each individual, weighing factors such as age, pain level, and the nature of the injury.
Conditions Treated with Physical Therapy
Physical therapy can be employed in a wide range of applications and at nearly any stage in life, including pediatric and geriatric physical therapy.
Whether you have a sports injury, work-related injury, or you are working to recover from an accident or surgical procedure, professional physical therapy can aid you on the way to successful rehabilitation.
Many patients have found regular physical therapy treatments effective in coping with acute and chronic medical conditions as well as aiding neurological rehabilitation.
Using physical therapy as a work conditioning program can help those who have suffered from work-related injuries to return to eventually safely work and perform the duties they performed pre-injury.
Even in cases without a pre-existing medical condition or serious injury, some have found physical therapy beneficial in managing minor pain and promoting overall well-being, including women’s health.
