PHYSICAL THERAPY

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy, known as physiotherapy, is an independent health profession that aims to ease pain and help individuals function, move and live a better life. In other words, physical therapy remediates impairments by promoting mobility and function. This care system is mainly used to better an individual’s quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis and physical intervention.

 

The above mentioned is performed by physical therapists, who are licensed health professionals, providing services that help develop and restore people’s maximum movement and functional ability.

 

Physical therapy includes a variety of different treatments: each of them is uniquely designed for every patient’s needs. It’s important to note, that in some cases, physical therapy is not only “physical:” may also include cardiopulmonary and neurological conditions.  

Some of the advantages of physical therapy are the following:

  • Helps patients function
  • Helps regain original capabilities
  • Helps shorten recovery time

Licensed physical therapists and athletic trainers

Physical therapy may be performed by licensed physical therapists or by athletic trainers. Physical therapists mainly operate within the post-injury timeline by evaluating and diagnosing an injury and then working with athletes or physicians in developing a rehabilitation plan care. Note, that the time spent with a physical therapist may differ for every injury, of course, depending on the severity. On the other hand, athletic trainers are licensed medical professionals who are practiced and certified in first aid and emergency care.

  • Fracture non-unions and mal-unions
  • Infections
  • Acute fractures
  • Geriatric fractures

 

Athletic injuries are injuries that occur in athletic activities or exercising. There are seven common sports injuries:

  • Ankle Sprain
  • Groin pull
  • Hamstring strain
  • Shin splints
  • Knee injury: ACL tear
  • Knee injury: Patellofemoral syndrome — injury resulting from the repetitive movement of your kneecap against your thigh bone

Post-Operative Rehabilitation

When an injury, a surgery, or chronic pain are keeping an individual from living their life a certain way, then it’s time to consider physical rehabilitation: a post-surgical program of reestablishing joint motion, muscle strength and joint function. Its main aim is to get people back to their daily tasks. The latter is done by implementing a uniquely designed regime of exercise and range of motion.

 

Keep in mind that while the surgery is performed within hours, the rehabilitation may last for many months, potentially up to a year.
