Sometimes, life comes fast and knocks you down, and when it does, it's very possible that you sustain an injury on the way down. Injuries come in all different sizes and magnitudes, and the healing process can take a long time. After the healing process, you still won’t be at 100%, as you’ll more than likely need to rework the muscle or joint to get it back even with the opposing muscle or joint. It can be very difficult to do this on your own, but the help of a physical therapist can make all the difference. They can help with anything from a fractured wrist to patellar tendonitis. The benefits of physical therapy are nearly countless, as it can help someone either avoid surgery or recover from surgery. It will improve mobility and motion while also improving stability. Physical therapy doesn’t just have to be for post-surgery or to avoid surgery, but it can help manage diabetes and vascular conditions, improve balance and prevent falls, manage heart disease, and even manage age-related issues.
Theoretically, we could all attend physical therapy throughout our lives for various reasons. If you are looking to reduce or eliminate pain in a muscle, a physical therapist may use a multitude of ways to help rid the pain such as massaging, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation. This allows for there to be pain relief and restore muscle and joint function, which can be highly effective.
