What to Expect from Physical Therapy
Your CONA physical therapists know how to evaluate your body and use feedback from our physicians to assess your situation accurately. Then, they will look at your body condition and abilities to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs. Your CONA physical therapist will help you every step of the way to make sure your recovery goes as planned. Depending on your condition, your physical therapist might be able to help you with the following:
Build your muscles and strength to help you move around more
Learn how to do new exercises to make you more flexible and mobile
Find out how to stretch and take care of your body in new ways
Get your freedom and mobility back
Our physical therapists use many different techniques to help you feel less pain, decrease your stiffness, improve your range of motion and strength, and make it easier for you to move around. Heat, cold, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation is used, as well as manual techniques, to help our patients move around better.
Therapists often use therapeutic exercises to help their patients get stronger, increase their range of motion, and do their daily tasks more effectively. The most important part of physical therapy is teaching patients about their condition or illness, where therapists may use charts, models, and diagrams to help patients understand their diagnosis and prognosis.
What to Expect from Physical Therapy
People who are injured, are in pain, or can’t do the physical things they like to do are usually the ones who everyone assumes would go to physical therapy. Physical therapy is an excellent option for people who have had surgery or tried everything else to treat their conditions or injuries. Even though all of these things are related to physical therapy, using movement to help heal and rehabilitate the body is very different; the sooner you begin therapy, the better your body will recover and feel better.
If someone can’t move or do their jobs because of an injury or illness that makes them weak, a physical therapist will give them exercises to improve the joint’s function and range of motion. Most of these exercises involve walking or lifting weights to help you become more flexible, stronger, better at coordinating your movements, or last longer. Manual therapy is a movement exercise like a massage that can help you become more flexible and feel less pain.
Because our bodies are so complicated and we use them daily, they are more likely to get hurt, ache, or get sick. Working with a movement expert, like a physical therapist, can be helpful and set you up for long-term health.
