Physical Therapy FAQs

Personal injuries can’t always be prevented. You don’t, however, have to live with the pain and discomfort of that injury. You can obtain relief through chiropractic and physical therapy treatment. At Riverbend Family Chiropractic, we often incorporate physical therapy exercises into our treatments to reduce pain and restore balance, strength, and mobility after a personal injury. These FAQs from our Destrehan, LA, chiropractor near you provide greater insight into physical therapy and how it can benefit you.

.

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy refers to stretching and strengthening exercises you can do to help you recover from a medical condition or injury. These exercises help strengthen your muscles, improve your balance and coordination, restore your mobility, and help your body heal.

Who can benefit from physical therapy?

Anyone who’s suffered a musculoskeletal injury (an injury impacting your muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, or nerves) can benefit from what physical therapy has to offer in helping the body heal.  

Can physical therapy be used with chiropractic care?

Physical therapy exercises work hand in hand with many of our chiropractic treatments. After realigning your spinal system with adjustments to reduce muscle tension and pain, our chiropractor may recommend physical therapy exercises to fortify injured muscles and help you regain your flexibility and mobility. Both are needed for a full recovery. Adjustments may also be combined with natural therapies like massage, hot and cold treatments, or nutritional and lifestyle counseling to maximize your treatment.

What is the difference between physiotherapy and physical therapy?

Physical therapy is an exercise-based program that can help your body heal after a personal injury, whereas physiotherapy takes a hands-on approach to treating an injury, using therapies such as soft tissue massage, myofascial release, and manual manipulation.

What injuries and conditions can be treated with physical therapy?

Physical therapy can be used to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, which is why it’s used so frequently in conjunction with chiropractic treatments. These include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tennis elbow
  • Shoulder pain
  • Subluxations and more

Whether your injury was caused by an auto accident, slip and fall, sports collision, or workplace mishap, you can benefit from chiropractic physical therapy treatment.
