Are you ready to celebrate all the reasons that National Physical Therapy Month is important to your health?! This month is National Physical Therapy Month and so we want you to know that physical therapists play an important role in your health.
Your physical therapist is a highly trained and skilled healthcare practitioner that cares for people at all ages and stages of life. If an illness, injury or surgery has left you unable to move or live your life without pain in the ways you once did before, you may find yourself enlisting the help of a physical therapist.
This month is a time to recognize and celebrate all of our physical therapists as well as bring awareness to the wide-ranging benefits of physical therapy.
Our physical therapists help their patients experience many benefits of physical therapy. Physical therapy can help you to become mobile again, increase range of motion, get out of pain, manage chronic diseases, recover from injury or surgery, and/or prevent pain from happening again.
While rehabilitation is a large part of physical therapy, you don’t have to have a sports injury to visit a physical therapist. Yes, we can help you recover from one, but also many of our patients come to us with other conditions as well.
Physical therapy helps patients recover from stroke. It can help you improve your balance and prevent falls. Physical therapy may also help you to avoid surgery. If you are suffering from chronic pain, it can help you to manage that as well. Physical therapy is also great for managing diabetes and other vascular conditions.
If you suffer from any of these things and want to improve your health, contact us at 1-833-861-6161 to find an Empower Physical Therapy location near you.
Your Empower physical therapist will work closely with you, one-on-one, to develop a specialized treatment plan that is specific to you and you alone.
