Understanding How Physical Therapy Can Help
People who have been injured face the reality that while the emergency room and hospital can take care of the immediate needs with sutures and casts, the road to full recovery will take a long time. This is why physical therapy is imperative to providing the guided exercise treatments needed to improve healing while avoiding scarring and permanent limitations. Our team at West Loop Spine & Stability is here to help.
The body has a unique ability to repair itself. However, it's not good to avoid long-term problems with how it heals. When soft tissue and bone are damaged, they begin to heal right away. If not set properly or treated regularly, both will heal incorrectly. This produces scarring, which creates less ability to move, stretch and work later on. It also increases the risk of a repeat injury in the same location.
Physical therapy involves treatments and procedures aimed at the particular part of the body hurt to heal correctly. Joints and bones develop their strength again, and muscles heal with minimal scarring, allowing them to work as normal again in the future. The proof is in the results. People who consistently stay on top of their physical therapy regimen see better results in the long run. Treatment isn't always relaxing, but don't let that deter you from achieving optimal health.
Treatment and Application
Our chiropractors and physical therapist's approach to physical therapy focuses on the muscles, the nervous system, and the patient's skeletal structure. We are particularly adept in dealing with cases where people have suffered injuries in the neck, back, joints, leg and arm joints, and headaches. Our approach focuses on where a person's health was before the injury and exactly what happened to the body during the event itself. Treatments can vary from guided exercises to muscle manipulation or re-alignment of the body and working joints. Again, our attention pinpoints what is needed to get the body functioning correctly.
