An evaluation with a physical therapist is the first step. Once your physical therapist has identified what is causing your pain, they can design a personalized treatment plan just for your.
Physical therapy helps you to find the problem and work towards addressing it.
Your PT will use a combination of treatment styles to improve your back strength and mobility, i.e. a combination of joint mobilizations or manual techniques and exercises to help you gain and/or maintain improvements and stabilize the back.
Physical Therapists assist you in moving better, whether it’s a verbal cue, tactile cue, demonstration, props, or a combination of the above, they help you to move more optimally.
A Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) is a highly educated and licensed healthcare professional who specializes in movement analysis, pain management, and restoring mobility to the musculoskeletal system. A physical therapist’s job is to help you determine where your faulty movement patterns lie, and how to correct them.
Post-operatively, physical therapists also progress patients out of immobility and back to their prior level of function. They manage and resolve impairments with conservative but effective treatments such as joint mobilization, soft tissue release, movement re-education, and therapeutic exercise.
Physical therapists don’t mask your pain; they treat it. At MoveMend, we will help you move out of dysfunction, and on with your life.
