What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy helps restore and maintain maximum movement and functional ability. For seniors, therapy can help improve mobility, balance, range of motion, and physical strength.
Physical Therapy helps improve function, musculoskeletal health, and mobility. Individuals with joint or muscle pain or those who have balance problems or difficulty walking can benefit from physical therapy. Following surgery, physical therapy can be effective in reducing pain, swelling, and joint stiffness, and helping you re-gain lost muscle strength and endurance.
Typical programs may include:
- Therapeutic Exercise
- Strength and Mobility Training
- Gait and Balance Training
- Muscle Re-Education
- Innovative treatment modalities such as heat, cold, and electrical stimulation
Physical therapy is a covered benefit by most insurances when ordered by your health care provider.
