Physical therapy focuses on improving muscle flexibility and strength, joint function, and proprioception. This line of treatment leads to increased balance, coordination, kinesthetic awareness, and better posture. Physical therapy also reduces pain and dysfunction by correcting imbalances. This line of care - which differs from chiropractic health care - is all achieved through specific exercises, therapy, and modalities individualized for each patient’s condition.
In many cases, physical therapy after surgery is essential to proper healing, especially when a procedure has been performed for spinal rehabilitation. Many patients also benefit from physical therapy after a sports injury. In both of these instances, the goal of your physical therapist is to promote correct healing and restore you to full function whenever possible.
Our physical therapists develop unique treatment plans for each patient’s condition. However, we understand a sense of urgency to get back to your everyday life after injury or surgery. While every treatment plan is different, successful physical therapy typically requires the active participation of the patient in the clinic 2-3 times per week (30-45 minutes per session) and home exercises daily. The duration of physical therapy also varies by condition but generally covers 4-6 weeks. Note that patients who participate as advised by their physical therapist receive the most benefit from their rehabilitation program.
Yes! Clinical studies have shown maximum recovery within a reduced amount of time in patients who receive physical therapy in conjunction with chiropractic office adjustments. Specific treatment is always coordinated through team meetings held by the physical therapist and the chiropractor. This partnership lends success to achieve optimal results for our patients.
