Return from Injury with Physical Therapy
See encouraging improvement after just one session.
Physical therapy is a process of focused healing through appropriate exercises. Physical therapy is anchored by the specific limitations brought on by an injury. A strategic regimen carefully expands the limitations until the patient regains lost strength and range of motion.
- Bounce back from moderate or severe injury with targeted treatment
- Recover and regain strength and flexibility following surgery
- Undo damage caused by poor or repetitive movement habits
- Come back stronger and smarter about your body
- Learn to exercise safely and sustainably
Physical therapy is appropriate at any point after an injury. Go beyond recovery and schedule a session with a physical therapist at Dr. Ibolit Chiropractic, Physical Therapy & Massage today.
Physical Therapy Can be Used for Any Injury
The goal of physical therapy is always to return a patient to a pre-injury state. For virtually any injury, most patients will see measurable results within their first few visits, with many seeing improvement after a single session.
Treating acute injury
Our physical therapists can set you on the optimal path to a quick recovery. We’ll tell you how to deal with a recent injury and set a follow up to make sure you’re on the right track.
Physical therapy is an integral part of any post-surgery rehabilitation plan. By the time a patient undergoes surgery to repair an injury, significant loss to strength and flexibility has occurred.
Repetitive stress injuries (RSI)
Repetitive stress injuries can either directly result in debilitating pain or indirectly lead to acute injuries by causing imbalances and weakness. RSIs are brought on by specific movement patterns or postural issues over time.
COUNT ON Your Recovery
Physical therapy is mostly about getting familiar with the baseline limitations of your injury. As soon as the baseline is established, we can then determine the best course of action to get you moving again. Here’s how we do it:
Identify what caused the injury and how the injury is affecting you.
Strengthen the affected muscles without worsening the injury.
3. Follow up
Check-in to add or remove anything that might affect recovery.
One of the most common setbacks for patients is to experience immediate improvement and then cause reinjury because they feel better.
The extent of your injury is important but just about any injury can get better. Age and habits play a role but the most important part of physical therapy is sticking to the prescribed exercises. The more closely a patient adheres to the treatment – including rest – the better results will be.
Compliance and consistency are the main ingredients to successful and measurable therapy.
