When mobility and pain are interfering with daily life, searching for relief often leads people to a physician’s office. Doctors frequently refer patients to physical therapy to help relieve their symptoms. Some people even choose to explore physical therapy aside from a doctor’s referral, possibly due to soreness from exercise.
With state licensed practitioners, physical therapy at Signature Health & Wellness Center offers the most current treatment options, including spinal decompression. Practitioners conduct full examinations to evaluate each patient’s condition. After evaluation and diagnosis of the issues, therapists will provide the recommended treatments to help patients recover.
Sports injuries are a common reason for physical therapy. Sudden and severe force placed on a muscle can result in a pull or tear. Recovery usually involves special stretches to re-lengthen the muscle, as well as special exercises that will help make surrounding muscles stronger. Golfers and tennis players may experience an elbow injury caused from overuse. Treatment usually involves exercises to strengthen the forearm. Even the common sprained ankle can benefit from physical therapy. Exercises to strengthen muscles and increase range of motion usually get patients back to their typical routines more quickly.
We also offer spinal decompression therapy to treat pain in the lower back, neck, and limbs. This therapy can be effective in treating spinal disc herniation, degenerative spinal discs, and facet joint syndromes. Like all physical therapy, spinal decompression is non-surgical.
Physical therapy focuses on strengthening muscles and improving patients’ range of motion. With these goals, patients may be able to avoid taking pain relievers. It’s also common for people to recover from an injury without the need for surgery when physical therapy is used to regain strength. As patients learn how to participate in their recovery by performing specific exercises, the patients empower themselves to become healthy again.
