Physical Therapy Q & A

What’s physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a type of therapy doctors use to alleviate pain and help patients improve their strength and mobility. This type of therapy is appropriate for patients with a number of different conditions, from herniated discs to whiplash.

How does physical therapy work?

During physical therapy sessions, patients participate in a variety of exercises designed to relieve symptoms of a physical condition, improve mobility in a specific area, and increase stability. In most cases, the intensity of these exercises gradually increases over time so that patients can continue to improve with each session.

Who can benefit from physical therapy?

Physical therapy can be beneficial to almost any patient. For example, if a patient has lost function in a specific part of the body because of an injury or illness, physical therapy rebuilds strength and helps the patient regain function. Physical therapy also is beneficial to patients with chronic pain in the neck, back, or other parts of the body. In addition, participating in physical therapy reduces the risk of future injuries and pain.

How does Advanced Back & Neck Pain Center use physical therapy?

Advanced Back & Neck Pain Center utilizes physical therapy in conjunction with other treatments, including chiropractic care and massage therapy. The doctors develop customized treatment programs for each patient based on that patient’s specific symptoms, medical conditions, and treatment goals.

What can patients do to improve the effectiveness of physical therapy?

Patients can improve the effectiveness of physical therapy sessions by following all of their doctor’s instructions carefully. Patients should attend all recommended sessions and give their best effort during treatment. Patients should also complete any exercises they are instructed to do at home. If physical therapy sessions become too difficult or painful, patients should report the issue to the therapist promptly.

Are there risks?

Because physical activity is involved, there’s a small risk of injury. However, the professionals at Advanced Back & Neck Pain Center are trained and experienced, and as long as patients follow instructions carefully, the risk of injury is low during physical therapy sessions.
