Even a minor car accident can result in painful injuries. A physical therapist can help you get relief from pain and injuries caused by an accident. Of course, car accidents aren’t the only type of accident. You might get seriously injured from a fall or in a work accident. Injuries from accidents like these can all benefit from physical therapy.
Physical therapy can be a huge asset to athletes of all levels. Since athletes are physically active regularly, they’re prone to suffering from sports injuries, which physical therapists commonly treat. A physical therapist can also provide help beyond treating a specific injury to help athletes perform at their best. Physical therapists can teach their patients how to stay active safely and what to do to protect their health.
Aging can make it difficult to do things that used to come easily to you and cause you to experience pain more often. As you get older, you might have a harder time moving around and staying active, and it could become a safety hazard. Physical therapy can help seniors as they age and experience age-related issues to help keep them safe and active.
For certain problems, surgery is unavoidable. Recovering from surgery is often difficult and could cause you to be in pain for a while after. Many people rely on post-operative physical therapy to help them recover after their surgery. This can help relieve some of your pain and improve your mobility while you recover.
