Physical Therapy Q & A
What is physical therapy?
Physical therapy combines therapeutic exercises and manual techniques that focus on building your strength and flexibility following an injury, during your recovery from surgery, or as a treatment for a degenerative condition.
The skilled physical therapists at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers are all accredited and highly-experienced in creating custom therapy plans to ensure your safety and health.
Using information about your injury, disease, and overall health, your therapist focuses on relieving your pain and improving your mobility through:
- Physical agents
- Thermal modalities
- Manual manipulations
Electrotherapeutic modalities using the latest technologies are also available on-site and the team customizes each session to help you receive the maximum benefit.
Why should I consider physical therapy?
Your Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers doctor may recommend physical therapy to increase the efficiency of your recovery after a surgery or as a general treatment for conditions like:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Joint injury or disease
- Chronic pain in the back and neck
You may also benefit from physical therapy if you have neuro-orthopaedic conditions, like carpal tunnel syndrome or sciatica.
The specialists at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers may also recommend physical therapy for a variety of work-related and sports-related injuries.
What can I expect during my first physical therapy appointment?
During your initial physical therapy appointment, your therapist reviews your medical history and your existing health to determine which therapeutic techniques are right for you.
They also perform a physical evaluation. You may be asked to walk around or make certain movements, so your therapist can assess your range of motion and note any limitations. Other things that your therapist evaluates include:
- Motor function
- Muscle strength
- Neuromotor function
This information provides insight into your specific needs, and your therapist discusses the proposed treatment plan for your physical therapy sessions, including how often you can expect to need therapy.
The goal of physical therapy is to restore function in the affected areas of your body and prolong or prevent the need for surgery when you have conditions like arthritis or osteoporosis.
If you are receiving physical therapy following a surgical procedure, such as a joint replacement, your therapist focuses on pain relief and helping you heal fully.
