Why Should I See a Physical Therapist?*
1. Eliminate Pain
Physical therapy can help reduce and manage pain, including low back pain, which affects up to 80 percent of Americans during their lifetime. Physical therapy that mobilizes the spine along with specific exercises can help alleviate the pain and is a great complement to the chiropractic care that we provide in our office as well! If you are at risk of heart disease, the American Heart Association encourages seeing a physical therapist for the initial treatment of pain resulting from tendinitis/bursitis, degenerative joint problems (osteoarthritis), and inflammatory joint problems (rheumatoid arthritis), rather than prescription pain medication. Physical therapists are a great alternative to medication and surgery for musculo-skeletal pain. Research shows individuals who receive active physical therapy experience greater improvement in function and decreased pain intensity.
2. Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
After a surgical procedure, your doctor will recommend a specific course of therapy. Beth has an extensive experience with post-surgical rehabilitation and will work closely with your physician to ensure that you are getting the best results!
3. Improve Mobility & Motion
No matter what area of the body ails you – neck, shoulder, back, knee – physical therapists have an established history of helping individuals improve their quality of life. A physical therapist can help you move freely again without pain and discomfort and feeling renewed and ready to move on. They can even help you prevent an injury altogether. According to the American Physical Therapy website, a study of 1,435 NCAA Division 1 female soccer players demonstrated that those who participated in a physical therapy program had an overall ACL injury rate 41 percent lower than those who did only a regular warm-up prior to practice.
4. Reduce the Risk of Injury
While playing a round of golf or picking up around the house may seem harmless, but these everyday activities can result in injury due to abnormal movement, stress on joints and strain on muscles. Because physical therapists are experts in knowing how the body works, they are able to design personalized treatment plans to reduce the risk of injury whether in everyday activities or sports.
5. Improve Balance and Prevent Falls
Falls among the elderly are prevalent, dangerous, and can diminish their ability to lead an active and independent life. According to the National Aging Council, about one in three seniors above age 65, and nearly one in two seniors over age 80, will fall at least once this year, many times with disastrous consequences. A physical therapist can help you prevent falls by designing an individualized program of exercises and activities with an emphasis on strength, flexibility, and proper gait.
6. Avoid Surgery
Physical therapy can help you avoid painful, invasive and expensive surgery, in many instances. Research shows that physical therapy, combined with comprehensive medical management, is just as effective as surgery when it comes to relieving the pain and stiffness of moderate to severe osteoarthritis of the knee. Pursuing an exercise program designed by a physical therapist in addition to preventative chiropractic care, can be one of the best protections from injury and surgery.
