When health problems, recent medical procedures, or injuries reduce your mobility and ability to take part in the activities you enjoy every day, physical therapy can help. Physical therapists are experts in body movement and all of the factors that can affect it. They extensively study the many conditions that can limit your mobility. They are highly knowledgeable about adaptive technologies such as splints, crutches, wheelchairs, and other equipment that may be prescribed when illness or injury has made it more difficult for you to get around
There are a number of reasons you may be referred to a physical therapist. Physical therapy is beneficial after orthopedic and other surgeries. It can help relieve chronic pain, such as back pain. It is also beneficial for recovery after sports, workplace, or other injuries. Physical therapy can also help you adapt and improve your mobility if you are dealing with long-term health problems such as diabetes, arthritis, or another conditions that can affect your strength, balance, or range of motion.
