Physical therapy is fantastic for your health. It helps you heal faster, reduces pain and improves your overall well-being. After referral from a doctor, you’ll want to know the details of the process before deciding to sign up. PT can be a great alternative to surgical procedures or a life of chronic pain. Here’s how physical therapy makes you a better you.
Injuries and age can tighten or tear different muscle groups. This can impact your range of motion and make day-to-day activities that much more difficult. Working these areas on your own without experience can lead to further strain and damage to your body. A physical therapist can design specific exercises dedicated to locating those troubled areas, and strengthening them at a level that works for you. Starting small, the two of you can work together to build your body back up to a healthy level.
Stretching is a great way to loosen tight muscles. But when you’re struggling with an injury, it can be difficult to know what kind of stretching is best, and how much is too much. Physical therapy can find unique stretches best suited to your needs without overexerting yourself.
