How does physical therapy help?

The usual objective of physical therapy is to strengthen and increase the flexibility of the muscles and ligaments surrounding the painful area. When you visit us for an appointment, one of our physical therapists will begin to work with you to create a personalized treatment plan aimed at helping you function independently.

To develop a treatment plan, your physical therapist will discuss your goals with you and go over the nature of your pain. Then, he or she will perform a physical examination and review your medical history.

Once your examination is complete, you and your physical therapist can begin your journey to recovery. Your physical therapy treatment plan may include:

  • Exercises and stretches to help strengthen the muscles
  • Hot and cold treatments to reduce pain
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • SCENAR therapy (treatment to promote the body’s ability to heal itself)
  • BEMER therapy (electromagnetic therapy to help improve circulation and increase cellular healing rates)

You will also be given instructions for exercises and stretches to do at home between appointments and after your recovery is complete. These exercises should help you meet your recovery goals faster.
