What Is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a form of treatment that incorporates a series of stretches and exercises that allow a damaged body part to heal itself from within. Our physical therapists will perform a full assessment of your condition to determine the levels of physical output that are currently possible before teaching you how to perform a variety of stretches exercises. These exercises will work wonders for correcting the issue at hand. In addition to the activity aspect, physical therapy can also include:
- Heat and cold therapy.
- Electronic muscle stimulation.
- Massage therapy.
Physical therapy can be used to treat a wide range of issues, making it extremely beneficial in the medical field. After the initial evaluation of your condition has been made, it’s extremely likely that physical therapy can be used to help.
