What Is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a form of care that helps you improve your mobility and ease chronic pain. When you develop an injury, illness, or any other medical condition, it could hinder your ability to perform everyday tasks. Physical therapy allows you to adapt to your condition in such a way that you can get back to doing everyday tasks and the things you like to do without triggering pain or letting the pain stop you from functioning normally.

During your physical therapy session, a licensed physical therapist will guide you through active and passive techniques. Through the use of therapeutic exercise, your body greatly benefits from it and this manifests in results like stronger muscles, increased flexibility, improved coordination and mobility, aligned bones and tissue, and reduced pain, among others. Your physical therapist may also recommend alternative physical therapy treatments like massage therapy or acupuncture for pain relief.

Why Choosing Your Physical Therapist Is Essential for Treatment

Everyone’s body is different, which means the same physical therapy treatment plan isn’t going to be effective for each person. To get the best results, you’ll want to work with a physical therapist with the skills and experience to understand what your body needs. At Metro Pain Centers, you’ll be working with a physical therapist that can take the time to develop an effective plan that you can do in our facility or in the comfort of your own home.

Through your treatment plan, you undergo as many sessions as it takes to see gradual improvement. This progress allows you to eventually manage the level of pain you’re feeling and help you readjust your lifestyle and practices for a more comfortable life.

What Happens During Physical Therapy?

During your initial consultation in a Metro Pain Centers, you’ll consult with our physical therapist about your current condition, what your needs are, and what you want to achieve through your sessions. From there, your therapist can develop a combination of active and passive therapy treatments. We may also recommend additional ways to help treat your condition for an even better long-term solution to your condition.
