Physical Therapy at South Lake Wellness & Injury Center
It's all too easy to suffer an injury, extended illness, or other catastrophic health event. Recovering as fully as possible from such an event, however, can prove extremely challenging. If you need to rehabilitate your body, recover your capabilities, and bring yourself back to your former state of well-being, physical therapy may be just what you need. Here at South Lake Wellness & Injury Center, our Clermont chiropractor can prescribe the ideal combination of physical therapy and other healing services to help you achieve your goal.
When and Why Do You Need Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a strategic approach to rehabilitation and recovery aims at restoring lost function or improving your baseline function. If, for example, you experience an auto accident injury that leaves you with a stiff neck or back, physical therapy can help you improve your range of motion and rebuild strength in these essential areas of the body. Physical therapy can also help re-train the brain and body to work together again after a neurological crisis such as a stroke. If you've been bedridden for months, physical therapy may be necessary to help you regain the strength, balance, and flexibility you had before.
Physical therapy can also play an essential role in pain relief and pain management. Exercises such as walking, swimming, and cycling can ease the chronic aches and pains of knee or hip arthritis , reducing or eliminating the need for painkilling drugs. Painful soft tissue problems such as adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) or internal scarring can benefit from gentle stretches and other flexibility exercises. Strength training can also help with conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome or elbow pain.
Holistic Therapeutic Plans from Our Clermont Chiropractor
Our Clermont chiropractor can tell from a comprehensive examination whether physical therapy should be part of your holistic rehabilitation or pain management plan. In addition to other non-invasive techniques such as chiropractic adjustment and massage therapy, we may recommend specific exercise routines using a treadmill, cycling, balance board, yoga band, or weights. We can also show you a number of exercises you can easily do at home or at work, such as resistance exercises from a lying, sitting or standing position. As your body begins to respond to the therapy, you will find yourself becoming more and more capable, and with less and less pain.
