Physical Therapists – The Movement Experts 
Have you ever needed physical therapy? I had a referral for the first time a few months ago for back pain that just wouldn’t go away. And you know what? I was blown away at how much it helped. Even months later, I’ve been continuing the stretches and exercises that my physical therapist gave me, and my back problems have stayed under control. What a win!

October is National Physical Therapy Month which recognizes physical therapists and physical therapy assistants and their abilities to optimize movement and overcome barriers to physical activity. A physical therapist’s job is to help injured, ill or disabled people manage their pain and improve their ability to move. Ways to prevent injury in the future are also discussed. They use physical methods such as exercise, heat or cold therapy, ultrasound, massage, and are cheerleaders in verbal support. They can help restore or maintain as much function as possible and keep many problems from becoming worse.

Physical therapy is a personalized approach just for you. After a thorough examination, treatment plans are designed specifically to each patient’s needs and goals. Therapists work with you to develop strategies and empower you to take an active role doing exercises at home in-between your visits. Your input is important as new exercises are added to your treatment plan as you get stronger. Items such as pulleys and weights are utilized to return you to maximum capacity to receive lasting results. They watch your progress and will adjust treatments when needed. For seniors, physical therapy is a way to treat chronic pain from diseases and certain chronic conditions. You can also learn techniques to help prevent falls. The exercises and stretches that are done can help maintain overall fitness for everyone. Physical therapy improves the quality of life of countless patients, along with educating them on the benefits of physical activity.

Physical therapists and physical therapy assistants are available in many different locations. Not only are they in private businesses, but hospitals, clinics, schools, offices, fitness centers, nursing homes, assisted living homes and rehab facilities. They can even come to your home after hospitalization. Your health care provider will be updated on your progress.

The evidence is clear that physical therapy is a safe and effective treatment for many conditions and symptoms that people experience. It’s important for the rest of us to see the numerous benefits of physical therapy. For more information or to see if physical therapy may be right for you, please discuss this topic with your health care provider. Happy October to the movement experts!
