Signs That You Need to Try Physical Therapy

How Does It Help?

Physical therapy can help you avoid surgery, injections, and prescription drugs to address pain and loss of mobility of the back, neck, arms, and legs. Research has found that physical therapy is often more cost-effective for many common conditions. These include low back pain, sciatica, and disc herniations. PT provides long-lasting relief from pain.

What Are Some Benefits?

Physical therapy also promotes movement, activity, and healthy lifestyles that reduce the risk of osteoporosis, stroke, and heart disease, as well as decreases obesity and related conditions. PT improves your quality of life for now and years to come.

Physical therapy could help someone who

  • Is injured: PT can help restore your activity, strength and motion following an injury.
  • Isn’t seeing improvement with other options: Perhaps you’ve had surgery or tried different modalities or medication, but haven’t gotten results. Physical therapy is safe, effective and non-invasive.
  • Chronically injures themselves (e.g. has constant ankle sprains): PT can help athletes, for example, who get the same type of injuries over and over again. Physical therapy can strengthen the area to make it less susceptible to injury.
  • Not moving correctly or compensating, which can cause wear and tear on the body: Physical therapists can help people move correctly by providing strengthening and stretching exercises.
