While there are many benefits of physical therapy, ten common ones are:
- Enhanced Muscle Strength — Physical therapy improves and maintains muscle integrity and strength by passively involving soft tissues in a series of predetermined movements.
- Increased Flexibility — You can enjoy increased joint flexibility and range of motion that improves quality of life.
- Reduce or Eliminate Pain — Therapeutic exercises and manual therapy techniques such as joint and soft tissue mobilization or treatment such as ultrasound can help relieve pain and restore muscle and joint function to reduce pain. Such therapies can also prevent pain from returning.
- Reduction in Stress — When you remove the stress of being unhealthy from your mind and body, you lower your cortisol levels. High cortisol levels have been linked to atherosclerosis, reduced cognitive functioning, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
- Improve your balance and prevent falls - When you begin physical therapy, you will get screened for fall risk. If you’re at risk for falls, our therapists will provide exercises that safely and carefully challenge your balance to mirror real-life situations. Our therapists also help you with exercises to improve coordination and assistive devices to help with safer walking.
- A Stronger Core — PT focuses on core stability and strengthening to restore pelvis and back muscle health (whole body support).
- Less Stress on Joints — During PT, you can learn how to evenly distribute pressure on ankle, knee and hip joints.
- Relief Without Medication/Surgery — PT can help you avoid using prescription pain or anti-inflammatory medications or surgery to manage recovery from injury or post-operative complications. A conservative treatment such as physical therapy is not only healthier and more effective, but it is also more cost-effective.
- A Participating Role in Your Recovery — PT emphasizes collaboration between clients and physical therapists. You can take an active role in your recovery.
- Reduced Risk of Re-injury — PT reduces the risk of re-injury by strengthening and toning muscles, as well as coordination-enhancing activities.
