The Benefits of Receiving Physical Therapy
Maintaining a well-balanced musculoskeletal system is key to remaining active and mobile. If you have been experiencing medical issues affecting your mobility, you should consider beginning physical therapy sessions. There are several benefits you will notice over time as you continue going to physical therapy. Our physical therapy sessions usually last about one hour with one on one attention with our doctor. At West Loop Spine & Stability our Doctor of Physical Therapy has been helping our patients improve their overall health for years and we can help you as well.
The stretching that strengthens the muscles of the back, lower extremities, upper extremities, and abdomen, will increase your mobility. You will begin to move more confidentially after some sessions with our Doctor of Physical Therapy who will provide a customized treatment plan tailored to your condition. This will affect your daily life, as you can more confidently and efficiently perform daily tasks like gardening, putting away the dishes, and going out for walks. When you don't have proper mobility control, your movements are less efficient. This can lead to injuries that can promote a vicious cycle of improper form that can lead to immobility.
As we noted before, not receiving physical therapy on a regular basis can lead to habitual movements that are simply not ideal for what you need to do to complete your everyday activities. This can lead to long term pain, that if not resolved, can force you to undergo surgery. On the other hand, receiving physical therapy at least once or twice a week can have the effect of reducing any pain that improper movement might cause. This alleviation is a short term effect that requires maintenance, so to gain the long term benefits, you should make physical therapy sessions a regular part of your lifestyle.
Faster Healing and Recovery
Physical therapy is used to promote healing and recovery after an injury. The benefits of physical therapy, when used to restore function and reduce pain, cannot be understated. In many situations, physical therapy is essential to recovery. Physical therapy is an excellent choice, as you will benefit not only from the therapy itself but also from proper musculoskeletal alignment.
