Celebrate National Physical Therapy Month
Physical therapy is one of the most beneficial forms of treatment a person can undergo. It is non-invasive and can be used to help with a wide range of issues. That is one of the reasons this form of treatment has a month dedicated to celebration. At Flowers Physical Therapy, we want our patients to help us celebrate National Physical Therapy Month this October. If you need physical therapy this month, we highly recommend working with our team.
What Can Physical Therapy Help With?
As previously stated, physical therapy is a form of treatment that can help with many issues. If you become injured this month of October (or any month for that matter), the odds are that a doctor will likely recommend you undergo physical therapy sessions to help with the condition. By making an appointment for physical therapy with us, you can find relief for any of the below:
- Sports injuries.
- Injuries after a car accident.
- Muscular issues
- Ligamentous problems.
- Balance disorders.
How It Works
If you’re unfamiliar with how physical therapy works, National Physical Therapy Month is the perfect time to learn! When coming in for sessions of physical therapy, you’ll be taught how to do a variety of therapeutic stretches and strengthening exercises that promote healing from within the affected area. By performing these activities, it allows for the following to take place in these many facets:
- Elimination of pain.
- Reducing swelling and inflammation.
- Improving flexibility and range of motion.
- Regaining strength.
- Mitigating the chances of an injury reoccurring.
Additional Aspects Of Physical Therapy
Although physical activity will make up most of each session of physical therapy, it is not the only core aspect. Our physical therapists will utilize various modalities in addition to the exercises to foster the ideal healing environment. Examples of these modalities include:
- Heat and cold therapy.
- Electronic muscle stimulation.
- Ultrasound therapy.
