Following surgery or after an injury, you may need physical therapy (PT) to help restore your body, reduce or eliminate pain, and improve flexibility. You can also use physical therapy as preventive care, to help with the normal wear and tear on the body. We’re body moving experts, here at the affordable clinics that make up the UrgentMED Network.

Benefits of Physical Therapy

The benefits of physical therapy are seemingly endless. Physical therapy can help you regain muscle and joint function, reduce pain, improve your mobility, help you with balance, endurance, flexibility, and strength. It also promotes healing – all towards the goal of helping you move again.

Physical Therapy After Surgery

Typically, your doctor will give you a prescription for physical therapy following surgery, especially surgery involving limbs or joints, including the knee, ankle, hip, shoulder, hand, fingers, feet, toes, neck. Physical therapy is the most effective way to help a patient restore mobility. It’s excellent after a joint replacement. Some doctors prescribe physical therapy to strengthen the joint before scheduled surgery, for example, in the case of a knee replacement.

Physical Therapy for Your Workout

Occasionally, you can push yourself too hard during a fitness workout and may start experiencing consistent pain. On the other end of the spectrum, old injuries or nagging muscle issues may be preventing you from your usual workout routines. Physical therapy can help in both of these instances.

Physical Therapy to Prepare for a Race

It’s crucial to train for races - even if you’re already a dedicated runner - but especially if you’re just starting out. You could potentially injure yourself if you haven’t trained properly. Some runners like to include physical therapy sessions as part of their prep regimen, both for strength and to help them avoid injury.

Physical Therapy for Flexibility and Mobility as You Age

As you age, you may notice your joints are becoming stiffer. It may take longer for you to get out of bed or up from your favorite chair. If this applies to you, you may be suffering from arthritis or osteoporosis. You may not have the flexibility or strength you had when you were much younger. Physical therapy is excellent for helping you to regain some of your balance, flexibility, and strength - helping prevent falls.

Physical Therapy for Certain Health Issues

Physical therapy can also help with certain health issues concerning pregnancy and postpartum care, bowel and urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, fibromyalgia, and more. It’s also used to help stroke victims recover.
