When Should I Get Physical Therapy and What Types of Therapy Do You Offer?
Physical Therapy is often needed after an injury or surgery that results in a part of your body being immobilized, or protected, to heal correctly. Sometimes your body adapts to compensate for injuries or pain but can result in further dysfunction and/or limitation in your daily routine. Physical Therapy also may be necessary to build strength to help you do everyday activities if you’ve slowed down a little with age. From walking, sitting up, going up and down stairs, to opening jars, we’ll work with you to set your goals and help you achieve them!
Physical Therapy can help if you are experiencing soreness in your neck, back or joints. It is often prescribed by doctors to help patients recover from injuries related to sports, work-related accidents, and automobile accidents.
What Are Some Common Physical Therapy Techniques?
In many cases, Physical Therapy involves guided exercises. These exercises will be tailored to your specific illness, injury or medical condition to help treat it. The goal is to improve your coordination, strength, endurance, balance and flexibility so you can successfully perform your daily routine without discomfort or limitations.
Soft Tissue Mobilization
Our therapists use various soft tissue techniques to improve extensibility, reduce inflammation, decrease pain and improve function. This in turn achieves muscle relaxation, reduces muscle soreness and improves circulation and, ultimately functions.
Our highly-skilled Physical Therapists utilize various manual treatment techniques and philosophies to improve joint alignment, mobility and mechanical function. Combined with functional exercise, modalities and patient education you are sure to return to your active lifestyle.
How Will Physical Therapy Help Me?
Physical Therapy not only helps patients come back from a previous injury, but it helps them prevent new injuries. Patients can easily reinjure themselves if they attempt to return to a normal routine before an injury is healed and have fully restored their strength, mobility and stability. Our Doctors of Physical Therapy will complete a full assessment to determine the appropriate treatment and help you reach your goals. Come to Minit Medical today for a complete evaluation to see if Physical Therapy is right for you and your goals.
