What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a method of treatment that aims to strengthen the body after an injury and improve its range of motion. Oftentimes, injuries make it so that you become sedentary and not able to move without experiencing some kind of pain. This is where physical therapy comes in with a gentle approach to rehabilitation. Physical therapy is a method that utilizes gentle exercises and stretches that are guided by Dr. Thompson at our facility. You may also receive massages, cold and heat therapy, various rehabilitation techniques to get you adjusted to using an artificial limb, and various tool training sessions to help you become adjusted to using a cane.

Your physical therapist's goal is to walk alongside you over a course of time to improve your movement, reduce your pain levels, and strengthen your body overall. It is incredibly important to receive consistent physical therapy sessions, as just one session alone cannot provide you with long-term benefits. Fortunately, we here at Health Pro Physical Therapy are happy to take this walk with you on the path toward recovery.
