Physical therapy is beneficial as a treatment option when health problems make it difficult for you to move around and do daily tasks. The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. Additionally, physical therapy can help with recovery after some surgeries.
Types of physical therapy
- Exercises: activities that are in addition to your regular activity to help improve flexibility, strength, coordination, or endurance such as stretching to reduce stress on joints or lifting weights to strengthen muscles.
- Manual therapy: including massage (applying pressure), mobilization (slow and measured movements), and manipulation (controlled pressure).
- Specialized treatments: includes cryotherapy, wound management, gait training, biofeedback, and hydrotherapy.
How can it help?
Physical therapy can help you recover from an injury as well as avoid future injury. Some benefits of physical therapy include helping you reduce pain in the soft tissues, build muscle strength, and improve flexibility, function, and range of motion. A physical therapist can also help you manage and live more easily with chronic health conditions such as arthritis or spinal stenosis.
