Could You Benefit From Physical Therapy?
If you have joint pain, neck or back pain, recently underwent a surgical procedure, or you’re experiencing any restricted movement, the physical therapy can help.
Physical Therapy is about getting to the root cause of a patient’s pain or discomfort and working together to make improvements. There are a number of physical therapy treatment options to help reduce chronic injuries to avoid possible surgery.
Doctors of Physical Therapy are experienced leaders in the field of helping improve patient outcomes through customized PT treatments. At Moriarty Physical Therapy, we offer preventive care for athletes both adults and youth, non-athletes, those in retirement and individuals who may work labor-intensive positions.
The benefits of physical therapy are not limited to pain reduction, but rather what it encompasses to help maintain a fit and active lifestyle. Improving mobility, postural stabilization, muscle strengthening and injury prevention, can also improve symptoms or reduce susceptibility to heart disease, depression, obesity, and diabetes just to name a few.
Who Benefits From Physical Therapy?
Many people benefit from physical therapy. Doctors of Physical Therapy can help people whose goals are to reduce joint and back pain, prevent falls, improve their balance, recover from a stroke, injury, or other trauma, and increase strength.
Physical therapy is beneficial to those who have pain and restricted mobility or movement in the spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, pelvis, knee, ankle, or foot. PT can help increase your strength, mobility, flexibility and improve your posture.
Regardless of what stage of recovery you’re in, our doctors can help you reap the benefits of physical therapy.
Couldn’t I Just Rehabilitate Myself?
Learn What a Physical Therapy Program Can Do for You That You Can’t Do on Your Own.
A physical therapy program is truly designed to guide a patient’s progress through assessment and treatment. Although some may believe they can create their own health management plan, physical therapy treatment offers a broad-based approach to improving long-term health goals and quality of life. Patients who seek treatment from non-qualified practitioners may be missing out on the benefits and results that physical therapy offers.
Sometimes, medication or opioids are given to help reduce the pain that could be treated by physical therapy instead. It can be difficult to minimize the use of pain medication on your own, but with the help of a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), you may be able to manage long-term pain reducing the need for medication, which can lead to other risks like depression.
Just as taking medication can seem like something unavoidable, surgery may be as well. You might have been told by another healthcare professional, or you may hold the belief yourself, that you will have to undergo surgery to fix problems like rotator cuff tears, spinal stenosis, or a torn meniscus. But the truth is, physical therapy could potentially help you avoid some types of surgery.
The benefits of physical therapy will vary from person to person as each individual is different. We treat patients of all ages, and our patients all have different types of bodies, different patterns of movement, different alignments, and different habits.
A Doctor of Physical Therapy, along with our trained staff, will monitor each individual and attempt to reduce pain, correct improper movement patterns, improve strength and mobility. The treatment we provide is tailored to your specific challenges, needs and goals.
