What are the Benefits of Physical Therapy?
A personalized physical therapy program can help an individual return to their prior level of functioning and encourage lifestyle changes that can help prevent further injury, all while improving their overall health and well-being. Most primary care providers refer patients to physical therapy at the first sign of an issue, as it is considered a conservative approach to managing problems. Here are some of the ways physical therapy can benefit you:
- Reduced Pain – Manual therapy techniques and therapeutic exercises can help alleviate pain and restore muscle and joint function. These therapies can also prevent pain from returning.
- Avoid Surgery – If a physical therapy program helps you heal from an injury or eliminate pain, you may be able to avoid surgery. If surgery is required, pre-surgical physical therapy can also help you. This allows you to go into your procedure stronger and can help you recover faster afterward.
- Improved Mobility – No matter your age, physical therapy can help you move better. Strengthening and stretching exercises can help restore mobility. A customized care plan can be practiced and adapted to ensure optimal performance and safety.
