Physical Therapy: Get Back to Normal Print Friendly and PDF

It is very common for your doctor to prescribe Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy or Speech Therapy as part of your treatment following a procedure or injury. In fact, the majority of patients get better with a course of therapy and do not require further treatment or surgery. However, in the event that surgery or other medical treatment is needed, therapy plays a vital role in restoring strength, mobility, and function to help you return to your lifestyle.

Treatment involves restoring overall function by improving flexibility, strength, balance, endurance, walking and stair climbing just to name a few. Therapists use manual techniques, exercise, education, and modalities such as heat and electrical stimulation to help relieve your symptoms and restore your mobility and function. Time is also spent on restoring activities of daily living including treatment for returning to work.
