Why is physical therapy important?
Physical therapy is an important element to help you recover from pain, whether from a sudden injury, or a chronic problem.
Strengthening – Unbalanced or weak muscles can lead to pain, put undue stress on joints, and increase the risk of injury. Physical therapy can strengthen surrounding musculature, which can help to reduce the strain on your joints.
Movement Patterns – Most of us have faulty movement patterns created by our lifestyles over the years. Everything from our footwear to our office chairs can set up patterns of movement that are unbalanced or otherwise problematic. If you have chronic pain or have suffered an injury, physical therapy helps address the underlying movement patterns. Physical therapy provides pain relief and makes corrections to reduce the risk of reinjury and ongoing problems.
Prevent scar-tissue build-up – After you have been injured or had surgery, scar tissue forms naturally as part of the healing process. But if the scar tissue builds up too much it frequently causes pain and excessive tightness. Physical therapists use several techniques to prevent scar tissue build-up to ensure any scar tissue supports your healing and doesn’t impede your rehabilitation and recovery.
Improve surgical outcomes - Physical therapy addresses pain, strength, scar tissue, range of motion, and more issues associated with surgery. Many patients find physical therapy both before and after surgery helps shorten recovery times.
Flexibility and range of motion – Developing and maintaining flexibility and range of motion makes everyday activities easier, less painful, and more fun. Your physical therapist designs appropriate stretching exercises and therapies to help you move about more freely.
For pain relief, greater strength, balance, mobility, and flexibility physical therapy is an important component of a healthy lifestyle and to help recover from chronic pain or any injury.
What makes ACACPT different?
At ACACPT, our focus is on your healing journey. We start by listening carefully and making a thorough assessment of your condition(s) before making a recovery plan. You are the center of the process, so we discuss your goals to make sure that every step of the way you are comfortable with the approach and support you receive.
Physical therapy treatments often work to reduce pain immediately, but healing takes time. As you progress, your physical therapist will reassess your condition(s) and modify your treatment plan as you go along.
At ACACPT, we are with you every step of the way!
Take Back Your Life!
The first step to recovery and taking back your life with physical therapy is to meet with a physical therapist. This initial meeting is exceptionally enlightening for many patients. You will discuss your condition(s) and how it limits your lifestyle. Your physical therapist will provide insights into why your body reacts as it does, and help you understand more about what healing will occur as you continue on your recovery plan.
Most patients leave that initial physical therapy session feeling hopeful (and many have less pain already!) Don’t suffer for one more minute!
