What is important to know about physical therapy and your personal injury?
Often times, clients come to our office after suffering an injury and have questions about the recovery process. Physical therapy is an extremely important part of rehabilitation, and often requires ongoing regular treatment. The goal of physical therapy is to return you to full strength and movement, while managing and mitigating your pain. A physical therapist also helps document your injuries, and progress throughout the rehabilitation process.
- Physical therapy can take place before surgery and after surgery.
- Physical therapists try to strengthen the muscles in the injured area of the individual’s body.
- By continuously moving the injured area, the body will naturally heal itself and build strength and mobility.
- Individuals do multiple sessions of physical therapy so that the patient does not require additional surgery.
