The most common reason people see a physical therapist for care is to address pain or a potential injury that’s inhibiting their ability to move and exercise normally. Physiotherapy also will be recommended by referring physicians post-operatively and for a variety of clinical conditions to improve the physical function of the patient.
Physical therapy is provided for individuals of all ages who have or may develop impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions related to (1) conditions of the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and/or integumentary systems or (2) the negative effects attributable to unique personal and environmental factors as they relate to human performance.(APTA)
Advantages of physiotherapy:
- Regains Original Capabilities
Physical therapy has been very effective throughout the years for many patients, and with continued treatment under the supervision of an expert physical therapist, it is possible for the patient to regain a majority of their original function or make a complete recovery. In addition, physical therapy is great for helping significantly improve the overall fitness and health of the patient.
- Shortens Recovery Time
Recovery time can be shortened with the help of physical therapy, which is top priority on many patients’ lists. Injuries involving a muscle, ligament or joint can cause that part of the body to get stiff and immobile and without proper exercise it could take a long time to regain full mobility in the afflicted area.
As each patient gets accustomed to their workouts, they will become easier to do and they will start to see their strength begin to increase and overall health begin to improve.
