Physical therapy is an important component to Redefine Healthcare’s individualized, comprehensive approach to pain management and injury recovery. This type of treatment focuses on restoring function to parts of the body that have limited mobility due to injury or other conditions. Our physical therapy clinics are complete with state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge treatments to fit each patient’s individual needs, Paired with our other comprehensive treatment options, the likelihood of accelerated recovery time is increased substantially.
Whatever the cause for treatment, our licensed physical therapists will combine the right therapies and exercises to reach your specific goals. These techniques will help break down scar tissue, improve blood flow, provide nutrients to the joints and muscles, increase range of motion, and promote overall improved function. Redefine Healthcare’s physical therapy program includes:
Along with your in-office physical therapy sessions, our physical therapists may provide you with an at-home exercise program. We work with patients to build a plan that fits into your daily lifestyle. Many exercises we teach you during your physical therapy session have to become a part of your regular routine, even after your last appointment with us. Our goal is to provide you with the tools and knowledge to participate in your own treatment and recovery.
Physical therapy can benefit patients with the following:
In addition to relieving pain, or helping to heal an injury, there are other benefits to your overall health that stem from physical therapy. Many patients find that it reduces their pain and helps them heal effectively enough that they are able to avoid surgery. Even if a patient’s condition requires surgery, physical therapy prior can help you recover quicker and with less pain. While physical therapy is often the thing you do after surgery, there are many benefits to starting with it. A pre-surgical physical therapy program can reduce pain and inflammation and improve control of the injured joint and range of motion. Following surgery, your ability to regain motion and strength all depends on physical therapy. The end goal of physical therapy is for you to return to your pre-injury activity level.
Physical therapy can also benefit our aging patients. We are at risk of losing muscle mass and strength as we get older, which can result in conditions like arthritis and joint pain. Physical therapists can help patients manage these degenerative conditions conservatively, or recover from surgeries like a joint replacement. Outside of chronic pain and injury, physical therapy can effectively manage other conditions, like those related to the heart, lungs, or weight. For example, the regular exercise and movement associated with physical therapy treatment can help control blood sugar, which may be a component of an overall diabetes management plan.
Your initial consultation at our physical therapy clinic will allow one of our licensed physical therapists to evaluate your level of strength, posture, flexibility, balance, and coordination. Based on what your physical therapist observes from this evaluation and taking into account your needs and goals, we will develop a treatment plan to start your recovery. Most of our patients will return to our physical therapy clinic for several visits. The exact number of sessions to fit your diagnosis will depend on the individual, but you should be able to notice progress after 1-2 sessions. Your physical therapist may elect to combine your physical therapy with other treatments as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation plan, like chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatment is often paired with physical therapy in order to retrain the muscles and rebuild strength after your body has been adjusted to its proper form.
