A majority of pain can be relieved through physical therapy. It restores function and mobility and enables your body’s mechanics to function the way they are supposed to. Below, we outline three more reasons why physical therapy can be beneficial.
It can prevent you from resorting to surgery. For many, surgery should be the last option after all other modalities have been exhausted. There are several other avenues to explore for pain relief, depending on your condition. These include acupuncture, trigger point injections, and spinal decompression systems if you have herniated, bulging, or slipped discs. Often times, physical therapy will be used with one of these other modalities, providing you with a holistic approach that effectively targets the source and underlying cause of your pain.
It can help you recover from a sports injury. Even if you’re not actively involved with sports in your adult life, you may be surprised how the actions of your past may surface later on. Perhaps you had a torn ACL from playing soccer in high school that didn’t heal properly, only for it to surface years later while you’re working out. We can help you rehab old injuries if they flare up later on.
It can help those who have suffered a stroke. Stroke sufferers may find that they lose functionality in some of their muscles. Physical therapy can be extremely beneficial to stroke patients because it can help them strengthen the parts of their body that were affected and enable them to gain their functionality back.
