Physical therapy (PT) is any method of treating biologic tissues using physical agents. This may include exercise, traction, electrical stimulation, cold/ice/whirlpool/ultrasound etc. PT treatments may reduce pain levels, improve function and even prevent disability depending on the individual patient’s condition.
Physical therapy procedures are designed to enhance movement and function of the body, often conducted under the guidance of a specialized physical therapist. They may take place in various settings such as hospitals or outpatient centers.
At a physical therapy session, you’ll be asked to partake in various exercises and activities designed to build strength, flexibility and range of motion. You will also be provided with tools and equipment for at-home use so that your progress can continue, as well as encouragement to start using mobility aids (like walkers, canes and wheelchairs).
Your physical therapist will collaborate with you to identify specific treatment objectives. They then create a tailored plan that may include treatments and at-home exercises. Furthermore, they offer advice on how to maintain control over the condition and avoid further injury.
