Regain Your Independence And Achieve Your Unique Health Goals

Physical therapy, at its core, has the goal of improving the body’s function and movement while easing pain from an injury or aiding in the recovery of surgical treatment. This is a wide goal as each patient is different, as is every body, and so there is no one-size-fits-all treatment to physical therapy. As such, a physical therapist evaluates the condition of each patient and develops a care plan that guides the exercises and therapies administered.

A customized treatment plan is essential, as a younger patient who has suffered a sports-related injury won’t require the same type of treatment as a 60-year-old patient who is recovering from spinal surgery. Every factor is key, from long-term health conditions to the type of injury sustained, daily activities, and the nature of the injury a patient is recovering from. 

Physical therapists are members of your care team, working in conjunction with your doctors to meet your health goals and return you to your normal daily activities and hobbies. Due to this, sports rehabilitation often goes hand in hand with physical therapy in general. 

Typical treatments may include:

  • Exercises or stretches guided by your therapist
  • Massage, heat, or cold therapy, warm water therapy, or ultrasound to ease muscle pain or spasms
  • Practice with gadgets that help you move or stay balanced, like a cane or walker
  • If a prosthetic has been implemented, physical therapy will help a patient rehab to learn to use an artificial limb.
