What is Physical Therapy and How Does it Work?
Physical Therapy is the art of addressing and treating contributing factors to physical disabilities, pain derived from the musculoskeletal and neurologic systems, and assessing and teaching proper biomechanics, to optimize function and improve overall wellbeing.
This is achieved by using relaxing passive pain modulation, applying various massage techniques to relax muscles and increase flexibility, performing skilled manual therapy techniques to improve Mobility and tissue flexibility, therapeutic exercise for neuromuscular re-education and to increase strength and flexibility, teaching proper posture and body mechanics, and a complete home strengthening and flexibility exercise program to help manage ones condition.
