Physical Therapy Q&A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a method of recovery that focuses on restoring strength, range of motion, and mobility. The Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness offers complete physical therapy services in the office as part of an overall recovery plan.

When might I need physical therapy?

Physical therapy helps you function better in several situations, including:

  • Chronic pain management for knee, hip, back, or other pain
  • Adapting to changes in mobility, like an artificial arm or leg
  • Stroke recovery
  • Athletic injury recovery
  • Surgery recovery
  • Accident recovery

Most patients participate in physical therapy as part of a complete recovery plan at the Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness. To reach full recovery, you might also need acupuncture, chiropractic care, psychotherapy, intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy, medication management, ketamine infusions, and other treatments.

What can I expect from my physical therapy assessment?

During your first appointment, you’ll have a physical assessment. This exam includes checking your range of motion, flexibility, and movement patterns during everyday activities like walking and sitting.

The specialists use this information to design a physical therapy plan that rebuilds your strength and function.

What happens during physical therapy?

Physical therapy programs at the Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness are customized to individual needs. You’ll most likely participate in several different activities and treatments during physical therapy.

With physical therapy, you’ll generally do core strengthening exercises and stretching exercises. Your providers commonly do hands-on mobilization and manipulation to improve the movement of your joints and promote healing of your soft tissues.

Physical therapy also includes treatments to ease pain, like electrical muscle stimulation, massage, heat therapy, cold therapy, and ultrasound therapy. Your physical therapy treatments work hand in hand with your medical care to maximize pain relief during your recovery.

Your physical therapy plan can change over time as you grow stronger and improve your function. The end goal is to return you to the same level of mobility and function you had before your injury, accident, surgery, or chronic pain-causing condition.
