Pain Reduction: Physical therapy techniques such as electrical stimulation, ultra-sound, dry needling, cupping, hot and cold therapy, exercise, and massage have shown to reduce pain while also restoring muscle and joint function. When done appropriately, our approach to physical therapy can reduce the likelihood that pain will reoccur.
Surgery Avoidance: Physical therapy is often the first course of action following an injury and if it reduces or eliminates the symptoms, then surgery may not be needed. However, even if surgery is required, you may be able to recover more quickly with our physical therapy program as it makes you stronger and in better shape.
Increased Mobility: If you struggle with moving, walking, or standing, physical therapy may be able to assist because strengthening and stretching exercises can aid in helping you restore mobility and stability.
Age Related Injuries: As our bodies age, we often develop arthritis or osteoporosis that may lead to joint degeneration. Not only can physical therapy aid in slowing down the degeneration process, but the goal with most cases is to help manage your arthritis with less dependency for pharmaceuticals.
