Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation from our Houma Office
For those suffering from chronic pain or recovering from an injury/surgery, physical activity can be a dreaded task. Fortunately, physical therapy and rehabilitation can be used as an invaluable tool to help the body heal and regain mobility.
When is Physical Therapy Necessary?
A doctor may recommend physical therapy rehabilitation for a number of reasons, including recovery from minor injuries and surgery, as well as mobility problems caused by sprains or fractures. Some of the most common conditions and injuries treated with physical therapy and rehabilitation include:
- Sports injuries
- Car accident
- Work-related injuries
- Chronic back pain
- Head injuries
- Degenerative disease
- Joint deterioration
Physical therapy rehabilitation programs are customized to meet each patient's specific needs. For example, while two people may undergo the same type of hip replacement surgery, their physical therapy needs and rehabilitation plans may greatly vary according to a number of factors like their health, medical history, age, lifestyle, and any underlying medical conditions or injuries.
Physical therapy rehabilitation incorporates a range of therapies and treatments such as strength and flexibility training, massage therapy, laser-tissue therapy, and counseling for lifestyle modifications if necessary. Physical therapy is non-invasive and is often a critical part of the healing and recovery process.
