Physical therapy can help individuals return to their prior level of functioning and encourage activities and lifestyle changes that can help prevent further injury and improve overall health and well-being. It can also help prevent surgery or recover after surgery. Even if you are planned to undergo surgery, you may benefit from pre-surgery physical therapy: if you are going into a surgery stronger and in better shape, you will most likely recover faster afterward.
Different physical therapy techniques will be used at Integrative Touch, based on your specific needs.
To reduce or eliminate pain
Therapeutic exercises and manual therapy techniques such as joint and soft tissue mobilization or treatments such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, Ktaping, and cupping can help relieve pain and restore muscle and joint function to reduce pain. Such therapies can also prevent pain from returning, helping you live your life to the fullest, free from any troubles.
To improve mobility
Stretching and strengthening exercises help restore your ability to move. This will help you complete everyday movements with a greater ease.
Aging joints care management
Physical therapists are experts in helping patients manage arthritic or osteoporotic conditions conservatively or help to recover from joint replacement.
