There are a number of physical conditions that can make performing even the most basic of daily tasks difficult. With physical medicine, you will not only eliminate your pain but restore physical functions and improve your range of motions. The goal with therapy is to treat your loss of mobility or physical impairment and allow your life to return to normal.
The first step part of our physical medicine program is to address the inflammation or affected area of the body with medication or physical therapy modalities such as ice, muscles stimulation, or deep tissue laser therapy. Once initial relief of pain and inflammation is achieved, our physical therapists can begin working on strengthening the weakened muscle or joint to build up strength. By treating the source of the injury rather than the symptoms, you can ensure a lifetime free from pain.
Physical therapy encompasses of wide variety of methods, including stretching and strength training in addition to ice, heat, water, and electrical stimulation. Your physical therapy doesn't end when your appointment is over; our physical therapists can also work with you to develop exercises or treatments you can use at home to enhance your progress.
