What is physical therapy?

Physical Therapy provides individualized one on one treatment with primary focus on restoring function and improving overall quality of life. This is done through utilizing techniques such as therapeutic exercises, manual therapy, muscle re-education, gait training, and functional movement training.

Physical therapy can also be an effective treatment option for individuals recovering from surgeries or other medical procedures. Through targeted exercises and other techniques, physical therapists can help patients regain strength and mobility, reducing the risk of complications and improving overall outcomes. Physical therapy can also be an important part of rehabilitation for individuals with neurological conditions, helping to improve function and quality of life.

What's the difference between a personal trainer and a licensed physical therapist?

The disparity between seeing a therapist and consulting a personal trainer with limited training in treating neurological patients lies in the extensive medical education that physical therapists undergo. Physical therapists have a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and neuroanatomy, acquired over several years of education, which enables them to account for a patient's medical history and comorbidities, and how they can impact the patient's performance, tolerance, and progress. Physical therapists possess the skill to administer tests and assessments that can either confirm or rule out conditions and consequently develop an accurate diagnosis and treatment strategy. Furthermore, they can detect symptoms that require immediate medical attention from a physician. The broad scope of practice of physical therapists allows them to safely diagnose and treat patients with ongoing medical conditions.

Personal Trainer

Personal trainers have a very important skill set and the principles are utilized in our facility in conjunction with our therapy programs. A personal trainer is a fitness professional who can design exercise programs and provide instruction to clients. They work with clients to help them achieve their fitness goals, such as weight loss, muscle gain, or increased cardiovascular endurance. Personal trainers can also provide guidance on nutrition and lifestyle habits that support fitness. Our personal trainers can help carry out post discharge plans once patients are discharged from therapy. This allows patients to continue to maintain their gains made and even set new goals.

What are the benefits of physical therapy?

Physical therapy offers numerous benefits, including pain management, increased strength, and improved flexibility. By focusing on functional training and rehabilitation, physical therapy can help individuals regain their abilities leading to an overall improvement in their quality of life.

Pain Relief

Physical therapy can help alleviate pain and discomfort in many areas of the body, including the neck, back, joints, and muscles.

Improved mobility

Through exercises and other techniques, physical therapy can help increase flexibility and movement, making it easier to perform daily activities and improve overall quality of life.

Injury prevention

By identifying potential areas of weakness or imbalance in the body, physical therapists can create personalized exercise programs to help prevent future injuries.

Faster recovery after surgery or injury

Physical therapy can help speed up the healing process by providing targeted exercises, techniques, and modalities to promote tissue healing and reduce scar tissue formation.

Improved balance and coordination

As we age, our balance and coordination may decline, increasing the risk of falls and injuries. Physical therapy can identify deficits and address them to improve these skills, reducing the risk of falls and improving overall safety.

Manage chronic conditions

Physical therapy can be an effective tool in managing chronic conditions such as arthritis, chronic pain, and diabetes, helping patients improve their overall health and wellbeing.

Increased strength and endurance

By targeting specific muscle groups and providing personalized exercise programs, physical therapy can help increase strength and endurance, making it easier to perform daily activities and engage in physical activity.

Improved posture and body mechanics

Physical therapists can provide education and training on proper posture and body mechanics, reducing the risk of injury and improving overall body alignment.

Reduced reliance on pain medication

By providing non-pharmacological pain relief techniques, physical therapy can help reduce the need for pain medication, decreasing the risk of dependence and addiction.

Improved overall quality of life

By addressing physical limitations and promoting overall health and wellness, physical therapy can help improve a patient's overall quality of life, allowing them to live their life to the fullest.
