Recovering from a neurologic or musculoskeletal disorder often requires a physical rehabilitation treatment plan to get you active again, swiftly and safely.
To help you fully regain your physical health, Associates in Neurology offers advanced physical therapy at two of our locations.
Whether you are experiencing the lingering pain of an injury, are recovering from surgery and trying to restore your range of motion, or your joints are simply not as flexible as they used to be, physical therapy can help relieve your pain and get you back to an optimal level of physical health.
Physical therapy is comprised of three important phases: pain relief, strengthening, and functional integration.
The first goal is achieved through treatment such as ice and heat therapies, stretching, bracing, and ultrasound. Next, your treatment plan includes specific movements designed to increase your strength, flexibility, balance, and overall mobility.
Your LSVT-certified physical therapist is a movement specialist who is highly trained in analyzing mobility issues related to almost every form of physical activity. They can pinpoint your problem areas and create a customized treatment that focuses on improving these areas. Throughout the process, your physical therapist assists you with many of the exercises and also provides some that can be done at home.
Because your physical therapy is tailored to your specific needs and goals, it can help regardless of the stage or severity of your condition.
Although physical therapy is most effective during the early or middle stages of your condition, when you can improve function and potentially slow further symptom progression, it is never too late to produced significant improvements in function and mobility – even in those facing considerable physical difficulties.
