If you’re dealing with injuries or chronic pain conditions, you’ve likely heard the importance of both rest and staying active in your recovery. However, it can be understandably challenging to know the balance. You want to stay active to help your body recover properly, but you want also to protect the injured or damaged tissue from further injury or damage. Physical therapy can help you find that balance. Continue reading for more information about physical therapy and how it can help you.

What is Physical Therapy?

Also known as physiotherapy, physical therapy (PT) is a healthcare service that aims to restore functional movement in individuals who are dealing with an injury or condition affecting their functional mobility. Your functional mobility is your ability to move safely and independently in various environments to accomplish different tasks and activities related to work or daily living. Physical therapists help restore your functional mobility through specific exercises, equipment, and treatment modalities that address the distinctive issues you’re dealing with.

Physical therapists are health care professionals who must complete a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree, followed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. As such, physical therapists go through a similar period of rigorous training and education as medical doctors. Often, medical doctors and physical therapists work together to bring about optimal health and well-being for a patient who is dealing with conditions or injuries that affect their functional mobility.

Some therapies that physical therapists use to correct functional mobility in their patients include:

• Canalith repositioning for treating benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
• Cold compression therapy, also called vasopneumatic cryotherapy
• Dry needling
• Electrical stimulation
• Graston technique
• Joint mobilization
• Kinesiotaping
• Manual therapy
• Mechanical traction also called spinal decompression
• Muscle energy technique (MET)
• Neural mobilization
• Soft tissue massage
• Therapeutic exercise
• Trigger point release
• Ultrasound therapy
• Vestibular rehabilitation

What conditions can Physical Therapy help treat?

Many different conditions can affect your functional mobility. Accordingly, physical therapy can treat a broad range of different injuries and conditions. Here are some of the conditions and injuries that physical therapists can treat:

• Ankle or foot injuries
• Arm pain
• Arthritis
• Balance and gait disturbances
• Concussions
• Dizziness or vertigo
• Headaches and head pain
• Hip pain
• Knee pain
• Low or mid back pain
• Multiple sclerosis (MS)
• Neck pain
• Neurological disorders
• Parkinson’s disease
• Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain
• Shoulder pain
• Sports injuries
• Stroke, which is also called a cerebrovascular accident (CVA)
• Vestibular issues

What are the benefits of Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a hugely beneficial service for many individuals dealing with functional mobility issues. When recovering from an injury or condition, you may be concerned about how to exercise without further injury or damage to the injury or condition you’re dealing with. Physical therapists can help you restore proper function to your body in ways that protect injured or damaged tissues from experiencing a further injury. The strengthening exercises and rehabilitative techniques physical therapists provide also help prevent the recurrence of the injury in the future.

Here are some other benefits physical therapy can provide:

• Decrease your chances of needing surgery
• Enhance mobility and restore function
• Help you manage age-related conditions, such as arthritic pain
• Improve your balance and coordination
• Pain reduction or elimination
• Prepare and help you recover faster when surgery is necessary
• Prevent sports injuries and recover from them quickly when they occur

Who is a good candidate for Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is well-known as an essential part of injury recovery. However, you may also be a good candidate for physical therapy if you are looking for help with injury prevention, chronic pain management, preparation for surgery, or getting ready for an upcoming sports season or marathon.
