What we do
Physical Therapy Helps Patients Overcome Pain and Mobility Concerns
Physical therapy is vital for helping individuals to improve their lives when dealing with injuries, serious health conditions, and disabilities. This type of therapy is focused on helping individuals to overcome pain and mobility constraints that prevent them from being able to live normal lives. With physiotherapy, people can greatly improve their recovery times and avoid reliance on strong pain medications that can carry risks.
Knowing What to Expect From Physical Therapy Makes Patients Less Nervous
When a patient first comes in for physical therapy, they will need to fill out a health history that will include information on their pain levels and current condition. It is important a person provides accurate information so they can rest assured their therapist will have the information that is necessary to draw up their treatment plan.
A patient will then be fully examined so the therapist can determine their patient's physical limitations, pain tolerance, and areas of concern. The patient will receive therapy services which may include, heat, massage, water, or exercise therapy to improve pain tolerance and mobility.
Patients will also sometimes be given therapy modalities to use at home, such as using ice, elevation, and certain exercises. Electrical stimulation units may be prescribed for use with certain patients who may benefit from this type of treatment.

Physical Therapy Helps With a Variety of Painful Conditions
Patients may need physical therapy for a variety of reasons. Individuals will be prescribed this therapy after surgery or after a debilitating illness or injury. There are many benefits from physical therapy, including:
Reduction or elimination of pain
Possible avoidance of surgery
Recovery from a stroke
Improvement of mobility
Improvement of balance for fall prevention
Management of diabetes
Management of age-related conditions
Management of heart and lung diseases
Physical therapy can greatly reduce the healing period after a serious injury or major surgery because it increases blood circulation and decreases swelling and inflammation. Many orthopedists or primary care doctors will recommend their patients go through therapy so they can improve their pain and get back to their normal level of activity as soon as possible.
