Physical therapy is a natural method of healing. Instead of using prescription pain relievers, injections, or invasive procedures, physical therapy involves non-invasive techniques that rely on your body’s own healing abilities.
With physical therapy, you get lasting improvements. Physical therapy can help you grow stronger, improve your stamina, and increase your range of motion so you can get back to your life.
The MyChiropractor team provides comprehensive physical therapy services. The two categories of physical therapy treatments are:
Active therapy involves special stretching and strengthening exercises. Although the team guides and supports you, you’ll be doing the physical work in active therapy. Through active therapy, you can build up your strength, flexibility, and range of motion.
Passive therapy involves treatments that the MyChiropractor team performs when you’re at rest. The main goal of passive therapy is pain relief. The many passive therapy methods include heat therapy, cryotherapy (cold therapy), therapeutic ultrasound, electrical stimulation, nonsurgical spinal decompression, therapeutic massage, and Kinesio® taping method.
MyChiropractor also provides a full spectrum of other natural healing treatments in the office. The team often combines physical therapy with treatments like chiropractic adjustments, cupping, and lifestyle changes.
Physical therapy is helpful for nearly anyone with an injury or chronic pain-causing issue.
One of the main reasons that patients at MyChiropractor have physical therapy is auto accidents. After an auto accident, it’s very common to experience problems such as whiplash.
Physical therapy can address the problems that come with whiplash and other auto accident injuries, such as neck pain, headaches, back pain, and other debilitating symptoms. It also ensures that you heal correctly and help guide a faster recovery.
Patients with arthritis and other degenerative conditions frequently have physical therapy to help them reclaim an active lifestyle.
Physical therapy eases pain, stiffness, and other debilitating symptoms and helps you grow stronger and more flexible so you can be more active.
After surgeries like joint replacements, sports injury procedures, and many other types of surgery, doctors often recommend physical therapy.
Starting physical therapy soon after surgery supports optimal healing, prevents you from making “bad” movements that stress your body, and helps you regain mobility faster.
