How Does Physical Therapy Work for Recovery?
Physical therapy is an avenue of treatment that uses various techniques to help your body perform better. It’s used to restore full function for even the most basic movements, such as walking or lifting your arms to brush your teeth. The goal is to ensure you can move through your daily life without pain or obstruction due to an injury or other issues in the muscular system.
Treatment begins by first assessing your condition. For example, if you’ve been injured, understanding that injury and how it occurred is of great importance in physical therapy treatment. It allows your orthopedic doctor or chiropractor to create a more personalized, targeted approach to recovery.
Treatment plans include a combination of movement and hands-on techniques. For example, if you’ve injured your back, your treatment will likely include back stretches, exercises for the back and core, and soft tissue treatment. Such a combination can help relieve your symptoms and address the root cause.
Combining Physical Therapy with Chiropractic Care
If you’ve been injured in any way, your skeletal system is likely involved. It might be partially responsible for the injury and is expected to be affected by it.
With a back injury, for instance, spinal misalignment might be at the core of the issue. Yet, that back injury can also cause specific muscles in the back to overcompensate, which puts undue pressure on other parts of the spine.
Our chiropractor will address skeletal and muscular systems for complete and lasting recovery. We can restore alignment to your spinal column, which addresses the root cause ahandles reduce pain and inflammation. Physical therapy will address any damage to the muscular system, further reducing pain and inflammation.
Each visit to the chiropractic and orthopedic doctor builds upon the other, so you can achieve full recovery in both systems. At Boston Orthopaedic, PC, we provide orthopedic, physical therapy, and chiropractic care, allowing us to help you with every step on your path to recovery.
