Physical Therapy Q & A

 

 

What conditions does physical therapy address?

Physical therapy has multiple uses. It can address dysfunction in your joints and muscles, improve your posture, alleviate pain, and help you regain your strength and range of motion following an injury. 

Physical therapy is often used in the treatment of:

  • Neck/back disorders
  • Hip and knee conditions
  • Foot/ankle injuries
  • Sprains/strains
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sports injuries
  • Shoulder pain
  • Car accidents
  • Sciatica
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain and dysfunction
  • Rehabilitation after surgery

 

Physical therapy also helps to set you on the path to recovery following a stroke.

 

What are the forms of physical therapy?

Therapeutic Rehab Specialists offers a broad range of physical therapies to address acute and chronic ailments. Therapies include:

Manual therapy

This is a hands-on technique used to minimize pain, increase your range of motion, reduce or eliminate soft tissue inflammation, and much more. Manual therapy techniques include massage, soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, craniosacral techniques, and joint manipulation/mobilization.

Sports medicine

This form of physical therapy is designed to get you back on the playing field following an injury due to overuse or trauma. Initial treatment may include bracing, casting, taping or even surgery, followed by exercises and therapy to restore your motion, strength, and endurance.

In-home therapy

In-home rehabilitation addresses your unique condition in the comfort of your home, with programs to improve your physical abilities and make the activities of daily living more manageable. This therapy benefits those who’ve suffered a stroke or injury, had orthopedic surgery, or are living with a chronic condition.

Custom orthotics

Orthotics provide your feet with proper support to maintain proper biomechanics, preventing the recurrence of pain in your foot, knee, hip, and beyond. Therapeutic Rehab Specialists takes molds of your feet to custom fit you for orthotics.

 

What is pool therapy?

Therapeutic Rehab Specialists offers a pool physical therapy program in an offsite heated pool. The program is led by one of the only physical therapists in the state with multiple aquatic therapy certifications.

The buoyant environment of pool therapy provides many benefits, including improving:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Balance
  • Cardiovascular fitness

 

Because exercising in water is more gentle on your muscles, bones and joints, this form of physical therapy may be ideal if you have arthritis or back pain, are obese, or have a sedentary lifestyle. The pool in Lakeland offers convenient access via a motorized chairlift.
