No matter what area of the body ails you – neck, shoulder, back, knee – physical therapy will relieve pain, improve your motion and give you a greater quality of life. A physical therapist can teach you how to prevent and manage a condition so that you will achieve long-term health benefits.
For instance, a study of 1,435 NCAA Division 1 female soccer players demonstrated that those who participated in a physical therapy program had an overall ACL injury rate 41 percent lower than those who did only a regular warm-up prior to practice.(American Journal of Sports Medicine August, 2008)
Physical Therapists do more than just help rehabilitate patients with physical limitations. They can work with patients of all ages with any loss of mobility due to an injury or medical condition. They can diagnose the issue, develop a proper rehabilitation program, and teach patients preventative measures and fitness techniques to keep mobility problems from worsening.
Because physical therapists receive specialized education in a variety of sciences – physics, human anatomy, kinesiology (human movement), to name a few – they understand how the body works and how to get you moving again. They know how to manage all four of the body's major systems – musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular/pulmonary, and integumentary (skin) – to restore and maximize mobility.
Whether you are living with diabetes or recovering from a stroke, a fall, or a sports injury, a physical therapist is a trusted health care professional who will work closely with you to evaluate your condition and develop an effective, personalized plan of care. A physical therapist can help you achieve long-term results for many conditions that limit your ability to move.
