What is Physical therapy?
Webster’s Medical Dictionary describes Physical Therapy or (PT) as a branch of rehabilitative health that uses specially designed exercises and equipment to help patients regain or improve their physical abilities. Physical therapists work with many types of patients, from infants born with musculoskeletal birth defects, to adults suffering from sciatica or the after- effects of injury, to elderly post-stroke patients.
What to expect?
On your initial visit, your physical therapist will examine you and develop a treatment plan. Depending on your health problem, your therapist will help you with flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and/or balance. Once pain and swelling has subsided, the therapist will work to increase your flexibility, strength, and endurance.
Physical therapy almost always includes exercise. It can include stretching, core exercises, weight lifting, and walking. Our physical therapist may also prepare for you an at-home exercise program to follow.
Physical therapists may also incorporate manual therapy, education, and techniques such as heat, cold, water, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation. As with any new stresses that the body endures, physical therapy may cause mild soreness or swelling until the body adapts to the new activities. – WebMD
