Key Aspects of Physical Therapy:
- Assessment and Evaluation: Our physical therapists conduct thorough assessments to understand the individual’s medical history, current physical condition, and specific challenges. This evaluation helps in identifying the root causes of physical limitations.
- Treatment Planning: Based on the assessment, physical therapists develop personalized treatment plans tailored to the individual’s needs and goals. These plans often include a combination of therapeutic exercises, manual therapy, and other interventions.
- Therapeutic Exercises: Patients are guided through a series of exercises designed to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination. These exercises are chosen to address specific impairments and promote functional independence.
- Manual Therapy: Physical therapists may use hands-on techniques such as joint mobilization, soft tissue massage, and manipulation to alleviate pain, improve range of motion, and enhance overall function.
- Education and Prevention: Patients receive education on their condition, self-management techniques, and strategies for preventing future injuries. This empowers individuals to take an active role in their own health and well-being.
- Rehabilitation and Recovery: Physical therapy is often crucial in the rehabilitation process following surgery, injury, or illness. Therapists work with patients to regain strength, restore mobility, and facilitate a return to normal activities.
