Physical therapy is one of the foremost necessary treatment modes of recovery for chronic pain.
A physical therapist is a well-trained, skilled health care professional who facilitates improving movement and manages the pain by safe stretching, conditioning, and strengthening exercise techniques.
Physical therapy is an evidence based profession that specializes in the treatment of physical impairment to address patients' functional limitations and activity restrictions. Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants are state tested and licensed health care professionals that specialize in the treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular injuries with the goal of reducing pain, correcting faulty movement patterns and postures, and restoring optimal patient function based on clinician established goals and patient goals.
Physical therapists evaluate musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and integumentary systems to develop the optimal plan of care for a given patient presentation. Based on the evaluation, physical therapists establish a plan of care that may include a variety of treatments, including, but not limited to: exercise prescription, manual treatment techniques such as joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, and scar massage, gait training, balance training, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, cryotherapy, and vasopneumatic compression.
