When you think of physical therapy, you may think it is solely to help you recover from an injury. Physical therapy is useful for more than what you might originally expect. Not only is physical therapy especially helpful if you have pain, medical issues or injuries, but customized therapy sessions can also help patients to improve normal functioning along with facilitating them in a variety of activities and lifestyle changes as a way to prevent an injury. Physical therapy can also improve overall health and well-being. Here are 5 benefits of physical therapy.

Increased mobility

No matter the age of an individual, physical therapy is ideal if a person is having trouble in standing, moving or even walking. Individualized physical therapy sessions are on of the best ways to regenerate the ability to regain your movement. Our therapists will work with you and monitor your progress to create individual care plans.

Reduced or decreased pain

Various therapeutic exercises and manual techniques, for example, joint and soft tissue mobilization or treatments including manual (or hands-on) therapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation or taping are essential in easing pain and restoring joint muscle operations. These types of therapies can also be helpful to prevent pain from coming back again.

Easing or elimination of symptoms

How long have you been living with your pain? If you could ease or eliminate those symptoms all together, would it be worth it to you? Our bodies were not created to live in pain and so if you are experiencing chronic symptoms, it may be time to find a solution. With physical therapy, it is possible for your symptoms to ease or disappear completely.

Improved balance

As we age, balance becomes more and more important to our overall health and safety. Physical therapy can help to improve balance and reduce the risk of falls due to poor balance.

A partner in your health

Sometimes just knowing that you have a partner in your health, cheering you on and helping you succeed can make the difference in helping you restore your health and quality of life.
