Do I Need Physical Therapy?

Most people are uncertain if physical therapy can help with their condition or injury. They consider surgery and pain medications as an alternative treatment to physical therapy, but this is not correct. Physical therapy can be a stand-alone treatment or an accompaniment to surgery and other forms of treatment.


If you ask a physical therapist who would benefit from physical therapy, most would agree that a fair majority of the population could benefit from some form of physical therapy. While the patient may not have a condition that is causing intense and life altering pain and reduced functioning, chances are that they do have a condition that would benefit from a little physical therapy. Physical therapy focuses on ergonomics, fitness, and wellness. Some of the conditions that benefit from physical therapy include:


•    Generalized neck, leg and back pain
•    Orthopedic conditions
•    Incontinence
•    Reduced mobility and balance
•    Chronic fatigue
•    Post-surgical rehabilitation
•    Cancer rehabilitation
•    Fitness and wellness education
•    Weight management
•    osteoporosis
•    Respiratory problems
•    Knee, ankle and foot problems
•    carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis
•    Stroke, spinal cord and head injury rehabilitation
•    Muscle strains and sprains
•    Work-related injuries
•    Sports related injuries


If you are not sure if physical therapy is right for you, ask your physician. Physical therapy is covered by most insurance plans as a medical necessary service.
