What is “physical therapy” exactly?

Physical therapy is a medical science that specializes in helping the body heal from injury, perform better, and relieve pain. This is an all-natural pain relief method that involved no drugs or side effects. We do are able to achieve this by using procedures such as:

  • Pressure-Point Release
    This helps to normalize the muscles and increase circulation in that area. During this procedure, the therapist or clinical assistant will identify the muscles that are causing pain or actively in spasm and press on that muscle for 1-2 minutes. This may cause some soreness but it should steadily diminish.
  • Soft-Tissue Mobilization
    This is the application of force and movement to nerves, ligaments, muscles, and other soft-tissue for the purpose of reducing pain, promoting healing and normalization.
  • Joint Mobilization
    The application of movement and force to a joint for the purpose of increasing motion and range. Can be used to reduce pain. Sometimes discomfort may accompany the procedure.
  • Kinetic Activity
  • Therapeutic Exercises
    In order to have good movement, stability and long term pain relief the muscles around your joints must be strengthened and balanced. Physical therapists are the leading experts in helping those with pain, arthritis, obesity, diabetes and heart disease get fit and strong safely.
