How can physical therapy help me? Physical therapy can help to reduce pain, improve mobility and range of motion, increase strength and endurance, and improve balance and coordination. While rehabilitation is often used to help people recover from surgery or injuries, outpatient physical therapy can also be beneficial for those who have chronic conditions or other physical problems. For example, physical therapy can help people with arthritis by decreasing pain and increasing range of motion or assist those who have had a stroke by improving mobility and increasing strength. Those who have had a heart attack can improve cardiovascular endurance and decrease the risk of future heart attacks with rehabilitation.
What can I expect at a physical therapy appointment? There are a variety of techniques and methods utilized in physical therapy. Some of the most common we use at Florence Rehabilitation Center are:
HIVAMAT: This is one of the best physical therapy options for a variety of ailments or injuries. This method of physical therapy uses deep oscillation to send electrostatic waves through your body and muscles. It feels like a gentle kneading of your body and it works by deeply healing your muscles, lymph vessels, and tissues, and by stimulating blood movement.
Stretches and exercises: FRC excels at teaching you strategies and skills you can use yourself after our sessions have ended. We develop and design treatment plans that show you proper form for stretches, workouts, weights, balance activities, and other skills that are specific to your physical ailment or injury.
Massage: Yes, massages may be relaxing but in physical therapy, massages are putting your body to work! Massage therapy aims to reduce muscle pain and tension from overworking/ compensating, improve joint flexibility and mobility, aid in the recovery of soft tissue injuries, and increase blood flow. And those are just a few of the benefits!
Aqua therapy: Aquatic physical therapy is an effective method of treating injuries or illnesses that need to be non-weight bearing. The benefit of physical therapy in water is that you can build muscle, and develop balance, flexibility, and mobility in a low-impact way.
You may also experience techniques such as floor exercises, manual therapy, motion or gait training, therapeutic ultrasound, traction, laser therapy, light therapy, joint mobilization, and much more!
