Benefits of Physical Therapy

Living with chronic pain doesn’t just impact the big moments — it can impact your everyday life and routine. For many patients, medication is not an effective way to manage their symptoms and help them return to their normal schedule safely.

Physical therapy, on the other hand, is a popular option that has the ability to help improve your level of functioning through a completely individualized treatment plan. Here’s how:

Reduces Your Pain & Improves Mobility

Physical therapy typically includes therapeutic exercises and manual therapy techniques to eliminate pain — and stop it from returning. Some techniques that may be used include joint and soft tissue mobilization or electrical stimulation.

At the same time, stretching and strengthening exercises used during physical therapy can help restore your ability to move more freely. For many of our patients, physical therapy helps strengthen the muscles that support your neck and back.

Avoids Surgery

Before surgery is suggested to a patient, trying more conservative measures such as physical therapy can help avoid an unnecessary need for a more in-depth procedure. If pain can be resolved through these techniques, then surgery may not be needed. Or, a patient can go into a surgery stronger, knowing their body is in the best shape possible.
