Physical therapy provides an alternative treatment program for those suffering from pain, experiencing limited physical functions, and having movement disorders. Seeing a chiropractor can help patients regain full body function and independence. Chiropractic care and physical therapy is a non-invasive and non-addictive treatment targeted to specific parts of the musculoskeletal system assisting the body in naturally healing faster. At Marron Wellness Center in Eatontown, NJ, we understand the need for individualized treatment and work to customize physical therapy treatment based on the individual patient, their pain, and their specific rehabilitation needs.
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is designed to help patients rebuild muscles and improve endurance after suffering an injury or having surgery. Through various strength and stretching exercises, physical therapy can help improve range of motion and strength and help patients return to their active lifestyle. Physical therapy can also help with specific disabling conditions, including low-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, and neurological disorders, such as vertigo and peripheral neuropathy.
How Can Physical Therapy Help with a Sports Injury?
Physical therapy can help with rehabilitation after a sports injury or surgery. First, rehabilitation physical therapists review the injury and screen for physical abilities and limitations. Then, they will customize therapy treatment based on the sports injury and a patient’s recovery and rehabilitation needs. Physical therapy focuses on the weak points of a body’s function and works to improve overall performance.
Do You Need Physical Therapy?
How does one know they need to see a physical therapist? People who have an injury or an illness resulting in pain may consider seeing a chiropractor for treatment, and the chiropractor may recommend the patient undergo physical therapy. Other things which may trigger needing physical therapy include having a physical impairment or limited function. Regardless of age, physical therapy can help improve the function of the body, which can alleviate pain and help promote healing.
