What Is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a treatment option usually prescribed by a doctor in relation to a physical ailment. It can take place in a hospital or a private facility, with licensed physical therapists who are trained in body and muscle rehabilitation running the sessions. The goal is to alleviate one’s day to day issues in mobility and activity and accelerate the healing process.
Benefits of Physical Therapy
Physical therapy offers an assortment of benefits: reduction of the pain caused by a physical ailment, improvement in mobility, acceleration in healing an injury or stroke, and help in the management of existing conditions like heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes. It can, in certain instances, help a patient avoid surgery or a drug prescription. With exercise and physical activity as the focus of treatment, the benefits can be felt as early as the first session.
