Why come in for physical therapy?
Many people are often worried about the price of physical therapy and just want to do physical therapy exercises at home. While therapeutic exercise and manual therapy are common treatment methods used in recovery, rehabilitation specialists also use a variety of modalities to reduce pain, facilitate healing and restore function.
Depending on the injury, the modalities used include ultrasound, phonophoresis, electrical stimulation (e-stim), iontophoresis, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), dry heat therapy, moist heat therapy, light therapy, and cold/ice therapy.
No matter if you’ve undergone a strain, fracture or surgical proceudre, you want your body to work the same way it used to. That’s why having a specialist work with you to set a recovery timeline and monitor your progress is the approach you should be seeking.
