At Alabama Bone and Joint Clinic, we understand the importance of physical therapy. Implementing physical rehabilitation pre and post operatively ensures our patients successfully return to work, play, and their healthy lifestyles. Our team of highly skilled specialists are dedicated to your recovery.
Physical therapy helps patients regain their range-of-motion, mobility, endurance, and strength. It can also help manage pain and promote healing. Our physicians work collaboratively with area physical therapists to create an individual treatment plan for each patient so that everyone receives the best therapy possible.
Physical therapy, often abbreviated as PT, is a healthcare discipline that focuses on helping individuals recover, improve, or maintain their physical abilities and mobility. It is a non-invasive, conservative approach to managing various musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiopulmonary conditions, as well as injuries.
The primary goals of physical therapy include reducing pain, restoring function, improving strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, and promoting overall physical well-being. Physical therapists, who are licensed healthcare professionals, assess a patient’s condition, design personalized treatment plans, and provide hands-on therapy and exercises to address specific issues.
Physical therapists treat disease, injury, or loss of a bodily part by physical means, such as the application of light, heat, cold, water, electricity, massage and exercise. They develop treatment plans based upon each patient’s strengths, weaknesses, range of motion and ability to function. Physical therapy is a health care field concerned primarily with the treatment of disorders with physical agents and methods, such as massage, manipulation, therapeutic exercises, cold, heat (including short-wave, microwave, and ultrasonic diathermy), hydrotherapy, electric stimulation and light to assist in rehabilitating patients and in restoring normal function after an illness or injury.
Physical Therapy treatments have been proved effective in many problems, such as continuous back pain, neck pain, headache, digestive problems, balance difficulties, whiplash and other collision injuries, occupational and sports injuries. Some of the other diseases in which physio treatment is helpful are Sciatica, Scoliosis, Fibromyalgia, TMJ disorders etc.
