If you are struggling with pain, a physical therapy plan can help not only help you manage the discomfort but is often tailored to help you eliminate the underlying cause. For those who suffer from chronic pain, physical therapy is often prescribed as an overreliance on strong painkillers can become a problem of its own.
Sometimes it's pain that's affecting your mobility, so typical pain management techniques can help here. But your physical therapy specialist can provide mobility assistance in the form of devices such as crutches, canes, or boots, that support your limb as it heals. Through physical therapy, in time, you can often eliminate the need for these assistance devices.
Whether you're an athlete or work a physical job physical therapy can help you get back to your everyday activities. Every doctor will always tell you to rest as you begin to heal, but just as important as rest is to safely get moving again. Physical therapy can provide that progression until you're on your own feet again.
As part of recovery from surgery, most surgeons recommend physical therapy as an important step. It can help reduce post-surgical pain, restore your mobility, and help you recover. In some cases, if physical therapy is providing you the relief you need and providing positive results you may be able to avoid surgery altogether
