Physical therapy is a type of treatment prescribed when injury or illness makes daily tasks difficult or painful.
Your physician may suggest physical therapy for a range of issues, including back pain, tendon or ligament problems, arthritis and other illnesses and injuries. The goal of physical therapy is to reduce pain and inflammation, strengthen muscles, increase range of motion and accelerate healing so that you can return home to your level of independence. Your individualized treatment plan could utilize several treatment methods including exercise, massage, joint mobilization, electrical stimulation and the application of heat or ice.
