Why Physical Therapy Makes All the Difference in Your Rehab

When you’re dealing with damaged tissue, one of the most important pieces of your treatment puzzle is targeted physical therapy. Through physical therapy, we can help you regain function and mobility, and bring you much-needed relief from the pain.

At Valiant Life Medical, we feature an integrated team of chiropractors, doctors, and physical therapists who work together to help our patients overcome a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and diseases. Our goal is to find the path of least resistance, which means tapping the amazing power of the human body to heal and support itself in the face of damage, and physical therapy plays no small role in this effort.

Here’s a look at how physical therapy can make all the difference in your rehab.

Regaining mobility

When your body has sustained damage, the odds are that your mobility is limited in some way, whether you can’t walk properly because of an injured knee or your arm is all but useless thanks to shoulder problems.

Through our physical therapy program, we treat your injured area with targeted exercises that promote healing and the restoration of function. To do this, we concentrate on strength. By strengthening the undamaged connective tissues around your injured area, we provide your damaged tissue with the support it needs to heal properly.

We also encourage flexibility and range of motion by gently stretching your damaged tissue, which prevents it from “freezing up” or atrophying.

Avoiding surgery

No one likes the thought of surgery, and physical therapy is a great way to avoid going under the knife. Through our customized solutions, we can use physical therapy in conjunction with other treatments, such as regenerative medicine, to strengthen and heal your damaged tissue from within.

Relieving pain without medications

Another great benefit of physical therapy is that we’re able to bring you relief from your pain by reducing the inflammation caused by the injury or disease. Strengthening your supporting tissues and promoting movement takes the pressure off of your damaged tissue to relieve the pain.

Not only does this approach improve your comfort, it also greatly reduces the need for pain medications.

Moving forward

One of the main goals of our physical therapy is to provide you with long-term results that go the distance. While physical therapy is designed to help your injury or damaged tissue heal correctly, we also take the bigger picture into account and work on:

By addressing all of these areas during your physical therapy, we can ensure that you have the tools you need to move forward.

Beyond exercises

The heart of our physical therapy is customized strengthening and stretching exercises, but we don’t stop there. We also turn to a number of techniques to help you regain function, including:
