Physical Therapy Q & A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy combines multidisciplinary techniques, including manual manipulation, exercises, and stretching to improve strength and mobility in damaged tissues. The goal of physical therapy is to help to restore patients to full, with less pain functionality using safe, non-invasive methods.

Who needs physical therapy?

Many people seek physical therapy following a major injury or illness that is not improving on its own. However, even minor injuries will heal faster under the guidance of a physical therapist. Patients that are not aware of a specific injury, but are experiencing long-term pain that is associated with certain joints or movements can also benefit from physical therapy to improve mobility in that area.

What kinds of conditions are commonly treated with physical therapy?

Physical therapy commonly benefits patients with sports injuries or other injuries that have rendered them immobile for a long period of time, or cause pain during movement. Physical therapy is also advised for patients with diseases such as arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome that limit joint functionality. Physical therapy can alleviate pain associated with many common conditions, and generally, any problem that limits normal motion can benefit from physical therapy.

What happens during physical therapy?

Physical therapy combines many techniques to improve the functionality of the body and help restore range of motion in injured joints. Patients can expect to learn therapeutic exercises and stretches designed to strengthen weakened muscles and improve joint flexibility. Physical therapists can also advise patients on exercises to practice between sessions, as well as activities to avoid until they are fully healed. Physical therapy is often used in conjunction with chiropractic care, massage therapy, and other holistic techniques to accelerate healing.

How should a patient prepare for a first physical therapy session?

A first physical therapy appointment at Studio 48 Med Spa and Wellness will involve a standard health screen and a physical to evaluate range of motion and strength in the treatment area. Back in Line then works with the patient to develop a personalized physical therapy strategy for optimal healing.
