Four Reasons to Get In-Person Physical Therapy
We’re taking these steps and more each day so that you can get the physical therapy you need now – without fear and without delay. A physical therapist’s expertise and training focus on empowering you to address and correct the root problem. With your physical therapist, you can work to regain your freedom of movement in four unique ways.
1. It can help you avoid ongoing medications or surgery.
While traditional means of treating pain certainly have a place in some cases of chronic pain management, physical therapy itself can be a highly effective treatment option.
Treating pain by changing how you move requires an attitude shift. You might initially prefer procedures or medication if you assume the pain will end if your bones or muscles are repaired. However, a procedure might not mean an end to pain.
2. It offers an exercise plan tailored to your unique goals.
If you have long-term pain, the underlying injury has likely healed, and the pain is probably coming from an overactive nervous system that needs to be cared for gently. Exercise can help.
Instead of using lab tests and imaging to investigate your health, a physical therapist will ask you what you want to accomplish and then help you build an exercise plan from there. It’s their goal to meet you where you are and help you take small steps toward your goals.
3. It gives you a partner for the journey.
Physical therapists know that recovery is a process and that follow-up treatment for an injury can be just as important as initial care. That’s why they’ll be by your side for the duration. From helping you create a care plan that meets your specific needs to ensuring you’re healing as expected, they’ll be there until you feel like yourself again.
4. It can help you feel whole again in body, mind and spirit.
Ultimately, talking to a physical therapist is an opportunity to take control of your overall health – and that means more than just improving your physical health. In fact, studies show that a pain-free life means a happier life. And physical therapy can set you on the right path.
