WHY DO I NEED PHYSICAL THERAPY?
Rehab and mobility exercises are an important form of physical medicine and rehabilitation to promote improved function and mobility. The goal of physical therapy is to address injuries or illnesses that limit a person’s ability to perform functional activities or move. Successful rehab uses a physical exam, history, and diagnosis to establish a personalized management plan.
Rehab and mobility can manage or prevent conditions for long-term health benefits. Along with helping people recover from injuries and illnesses, physical therapy also prevents the loss of mobility and function before it occurs. After an initial evaluation, a treatment plan will be developed that may include rehab exercises, education on managing symptoms, manual therapy, and chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care and physical therapy often go together. Chiropractic adjustments may be a part of a physical therapy treatment plan and many patients see a chiropractor after physical therapy for continued adjustments.
