Physical Therapy Q&A

Why would I need physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a standard part of rehabilitation from an injury, disease, or surgery. This service focuses on restoring range of motion and function in your joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Therapy can also help ease chronic pain.

The providers at Premier Orthopedics offer on-site physical therapy services for both adults and children under the guidance of skilled physical and occupational therapists. The physical therapy team provides:

  • Hand therapy
  • Spine therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Sports medicine therapy
  • Joint therapy orthotics

Your Premier Orthopedics physician can refer you for physical therapy following an injury or an orthopedic surgery or help you manage pain and other symptoms of underlying health conditions.

What’s involved in physical therapy?

Depending on your overall health and the condition you're treating, your physical therapist customizes a plan that assists with recovery. Your plan may include:

  • Exercises
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Educational resources
  • Manual therapy and manipulation

Your therapist can also provide guidance for lifestyle changes you should make to speed up your recovery and to prevent additional injuries from falls or activities while you heal.

You may need to schedule sessions several times a week to receive the maximum benefit of your therapy. Your therapist works closely with you to determine how long you need to participate in physical therapy based on your condition.

What are the benefits of physical therapy?

Working with a physical therapist can help you reduce your risk for mobility loss before it occurs. By following through with exercises and manual therapies, you can rebuild strength and flexibility in your body to aid in your recovery and ease your pain.

Physical therapy is also beneficial for helping you achieve and maintain overall health and wellness. Therapy programs make it easier for you to incorporate physical fitness into your daily life, so you can reach a healthy body weight and reduce unnecessary pressure on your joints.

Additionally, physical therapy is effective at keeping you healthy and strong to reduce your risk factors for age-related and degenerative diseases, sports injuries, and permanent disability.
