PROVIDING A CONSERVATIVE OPTION TO SURGERY:
While surgery can be the best course of treatment for certain diagnoses, there is evidence to indicate that physical therapists can offer a safer alternative. Many conditions can be conservatively managed with therapy.
When there is a need for surgery, physical therapists can enhance the outcome both before and after surgery. Additionally, for those individuals whose health conditions prevent surgery from being an option, Physical Therapists can be invaluable in helping them improve or maintain the quality of their lives.
MANAGE PAIN EFFECTIVELY WITHOUT LONG TERM PAIN MEDS:
A Physical Therapist can help patients control pain, often reducing the need for long-term use of medications. Studies reveal that individuals who receive physical therapy experience greater improvement in function with less pain. While recognizing that medication is an essential component in the management of many acute and chronic conditions, Physical Therapists can provide an alternative to the long-term use of medications for the management of pain and certain other health conditions. Less pain meds means less side-effects.
