Whether you have an orthopedic or sports injury, have just had surgery, are looking to improve balance or gait, or you are looking to promote health, wellness and fitness, Physical Therapy can help to return you to your fullest active potential!
Many people are referred to a physical therapist in order to rehabilitate from a major medical trauma or surgery, but increasing research also suggests that treatment by a physical therapist is often an equally effective - and less expensive - alternative to surgery and prescription drugs for numerous conditions ranging from back pain and degenerative disk disease to meniscal tears and knee osteoarthritis, just to name a few common conditions. Movement can help you prevent obesity, which may be responsible for at least 18% of US adult deaths. Meanwhile, recent studies suggest that prolonged sitting can be unhealthy, and that walking just a little bit more each day can help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Consistent movement is also vital to maintaining a healthy balance system, and that's important because falls often lead to significant, costly injuries.
