Physical Therapy Is Not Just For Injuries
When people hear about physical therapy, many tend to think it is only for the disabled or people with injuries and pain. The physical therapy field of expertise has expanded significantly and it is not just about traumatic injury and disability anymore. Physical therapists are proficient in helping prevent injury and avoid pain by reinforcing proper body mechanics. The profession of physical therapy includes helping all individuals reach higher levels of wellness and physical conditioning. We advise clients about modifying their gym and other training routines to minimize the potential for injuries and maximize their quality of life and performance. In short, physical therapy does not just improve your function and resolve your pain but is also improves your ability to enjoy the activities that you love to do. So ask yourself some questions. Do you have a list of activities you have stopped doing? Are you physically able to do all of the things you want to do? Do you have any bothersome or chronic aches or pains that you are living with? How is your mobility and flexibility doing daily activities? If you answer yes to any of these questions you may be a perfect candidate for physical therapy. When you pay a visit to our physical therapists, they will conduct detailed tests for pain, strength, range of motion, posture, and much more. The tests evaluate the status of your entire body so an individualized treatment plan can be formulated. Physical therapists will educate you on the weaknesses and structural imbalances in your body and will provide an individualize plan of care to correct any dysfunctions. You will also be taught what can be done to prevent future pain and injury. Call our clinic to schedule an evaluation soon.
