What Is Physical Therapy?

There is no “one size fits all” program for effective physical therapy, which is why we take our time to customize your physical therapy regimen to meet your needs. Our physical therapists offer personally tailored, patient-focused services for every person who utilizes our services.

Physical therapy generally involves stretching and strengthening exercises to help restore your movement ability. In addition to manual therapies, your physical therapist may prescribe heat, moist heat, and cold therapy.

Our team provides the individualized care you need to overcome pain after sustaining an injury or recovering from surgery. We also help many patients who have diminished mobility or motion, such as those diagnosed with chronic joint pain from a condition such as lupus or movement disorders like Parkinson’s Disease.

How Can Physical Therapy Help Me?

Physical therapy not only helps those who are recovering from an injury or illness. It is also a valuable tool in helping you live well through every stage of life.

Some of the conditions that may require physical therapy and/or other rehabilitation services include:

  • Reduce or eliminate body pain: Physical therapists are experts in prescribing therapeutic exercises and manual therapy techniques to relieve pain and help prevent pain from returning.
  • Improved mobility limitations: No matter your age, if it is challenging for you to stand, walk, or move, physical therapy can help. This can help you become stronger and get in better shape to speed up your ability to move more comfortably.
  • Avoid Surgery: Physical therapy helps to reduce the symptoms of many chronic diseases and conditions. It also can keep many problems from getting worse. Physical therapists can help you avoid the need for, and the costs and risks of, surgery.
  • Prevent and Treat Sports injury: If you experience frequent pain or injury while exercising, a physical therapist can evaluate and treat your weaknesses and prescribe exercises that help prevent future injury. Our physical therapists can treat you, whether you are recovering from a stress fracture or looking to return to sport following a surgical procedure.
  • Pre- and Post-surgery rehab: Pre-surgical physical therapy may include muscle training, stretching and mobility training. The goal is to improve strength and functionality in the areas immediately surrounding the surgery site, and to improve overall wellness so that you are better prepared. Following a surgery, such as a joint replacement, physical therapy can help to ease post-surgery pain and discomfort, help muscles regain strength and function, ensure that you regain your flexibility and range of motion and retrain the affected muscle or joint to perform tasks normally. .
  • Stroke recovery – The aftereffects of a stroke can be devastating and possibly permanent, such as loss of function and movement. Rehabilitation and physical therapy have been shown to make a significant improvement in many patients’ conditions, including restoring lost mobility. Physical therapy can improve your functional abilities days and years following a stroke.
  • Amputation & Other Major Injuries – Even when complete recovery is impossible, learning how to live with a disability is invaluable. Physical therapy can help ease the patient’s frustration and help them regain control over their situation.
