Physical Therapy

Most of us have experienced some form of pain at one time or another. Whether it is chronic or acute pain, its specific causes should be treated if you want long lasting relief. Physical therapy is a wonderful alternative that can provide immediate and long term relief from a number of physical as well as physiological stresses. Physical therapy dramatically improves joint and muscle function, while ensuring you a pain-free life and improved functioning.

Physical Therapy – Treatment Benefits

• Alleviates pain
• Improves joint mobility
• Restores function
• Increases independence
• Increases strength and balance

It can be an effective solution for just about anyone that is suffering from pain. A vast array of medical problems and symptoms can be treated effectively with physical therapy. Conditions patients normally suffer can be the result of an illness, injury, or chronic disease. Problems such as muscle and joint disorders, arthritis, amputations, hip, knee, ankle and shoulder dysfunction, sports or work-related injuries, spinal disorders or neuromuscular conditions can be treated successfully.

To support patients with a disability and to help them achieve a positive lifestyle, many healthcare centers are offering physical therapy programs. Physical therapists help patients manage and recover from debilitating physical conditions, and instruct them on how to deal with pain on a day-to-day basis so that they can function normally.

Physical Therapy Techniques

A physical therapist uses many physical therapy modalities and therapeutic exercise programs for diagnosis and management of pain. These include:

• Massage and Myofascial Release
• Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
• Ice or Heat to eliminate muscle spasm and inflammation
• Ultrasound to treat soft tissue injuries
• Sports therapy
• Traction
• Rehabilitation
• Exercise Programs and injury prevention

This approach to wellness will ultimately lead to the prevention of injury and help in maximizing recovery.
