What are the Benefits of Physical Therapy?
There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to your healthcare. The treatments you receive should be specific to your goals, your body, and your lifestyle. Physical Therapists are able to work directly with their clients to determine the best approach to help them maximize movement, manage pain, avoid drugs and surgeries, treat chronic conditions, and recover from injuries.
When it comes to your independence and the ability to live your life to the fullest, nothing is more important than the ability to move your body freely. Identifying joints and muscles that are causing you chronic pain is one way a Physical Therapist can help you maximize your ability to move, allowing you to engage in more activities, earn a living, and be free from the stresses of pain.
Regular physical activity helps more than your physical body. Studies demonstrate that routine activity provides boosts to your confidence, mental, and social health as well. Being able to exercise in some fashion can also help to prevent injuries, as well as chronic conditions such as obesity, depression, heart disease, diabetes, and even some cancers. A consultation with your Physical Therapist will help you identify ways to remove the barriers which are preventing you from routine exercise.
Many pain and movement problems can lead to surgery, but before you make the decision to alter your body you should see if Physical Therapy can help you treat these painful conditions. Research shows that physical therapy is as effective as surgery for many conditions such as osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disk disease. If surgery is not able to be avoided, physical therapy will help you to prepare and recover from it.
