Physical therapy has long been heralded for its ability to help people with sports and musculoskeletal injuries.  But in reality, there are more than 204,000 physical therapists all across the United States work hard to treat movement, neurological and genetic disorders as well.  There are many conditions that physical therapists may treat that you may not be aware of.  

The following is a list of conditions that you may not know can be treated by physical therapy.

Balance, Dizziness & Vertigo

Physical therapy can help to improve balance.  Balance disorders and dizziness can be alleviated by working on balance exercises and vestibular rehabilitation.  This type of therapy can teach patients to compensate for any balance issues by improving vision and body sense.

Pre-Natal/Post-Partum Care

Physical therapy can offer relief for expecting mothers who may be experiencing pain and discomfort in the back, legs and hips through exercise and treatment.  Physical therapy is effective in treating pelvic and back pain to help new moms strengthen their bodies for the rigors of motherhood.

There are many types of headaches including tension headaches, migraines and cluster headaches to name a few.  Headaches can become a frequent occurrence that affects a person’s ability to function on a daily basis.  After a thorough evaluation, a physical therapist can treat chronic tension-type headaches, the most common headache disorder.  A physical therapist can work with you to identify the cause of headaches (for example muscle tension, joint dysfunction in the neck or jaw, poor posture or stress) and work to improve posture, strength and mobility.  

Multiple Sclerosis

Physical therapy can help combat the progressive weakening and degenerative skeletal problems associated with muscular dystrophy.
