What do physical therapists do? A physical therapist is a healthcare professional that examines, diagnoses and treats individuals that have been injured or have a particular health condition that contributes to pain or limits general mobility.
Physical therapists employ a variety of different natural treatment strategies and techniques that don’t rely on medication or surgery. They use specific exercises and equipment to target injured and damaged areas to relieve pain and help you get back to your normal routine. At our chiropractic clinic we use physical therapy by itself, or as part of a personalized treatment plan for pain relief or to facilitate healing.
Physical Therapy Treatment
Physical therapy is a natural, non-surgical way to relieve pain and help your body heal from injuries or chronic conditions. We will always treat the underlying cause of your painful condition, so you can experience long-lasting relief. When pain medication is used to cover up the pain, the true cause is not being addressed, and will never be healed. The result is often a dangerous cycle of pharmaceutical use that could adversely affect all areas of your life.
Surgery may also be prescribed for many conditions like shoulder pain, neck pain, knee pain, back pain or hip pain. Sometimes, these procedures can help but the recovery process is extensive and there you’ll never know if it was truly successful until much later.
Our physical therapy treatment can help with:
- Reducing pain
- Reducing inflammation
- Avoiding surgery
- Restoring strength and mobility to muscles and joints
- Increasing flexibility
- Improving balance
- Improving range of motion
After an injury or when a degenerative condition has made your daily life unbearable, receiving treatment from our physical therapist can help get you back on track.
