What Are the Benefits of Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy offers enormous benefits to a wide range of people, from injured athletes to seniors with chronic pain. It offers an effective, long-term solution that doesn’t involve taking medications or undergoing invasive procedures. Is physical therapy right for you? Here is a look at some of the advantages.

Achieve Healthier Movement

If you suffer from pain, such as a frozen shoulder or chronic lower back pain, there is a good chance that the way you move is contributing to your symptoms. You may be moving in such a way to favor the affected area, which can trigger pain in other parts of your body, or may have developed a way of walking or doing motions in sports or on the job that put your muscles and joints at risk. Physical therapists can evaluate the way you move, spot any unhealthy habits, and help you correct them, so that you can achieve freedom of movement without the pain that is holding you back.

Avoid Pain Medications

Pain medications, especially opioids, may relieve your symptoms temporarily, but they also carry an enormous risk of side effects, from drug dependency to depression and overdose. Physical therapy offers a drug-free solution to chronic pain, so you can get the relief you need without triggering a brand new set of health complaints. If your doctor decides that pain medications should still be part of your treatment plan, doing physical therapy may help you take smaller doses.

Avoid Surgery

Some conditions, including osteoarthritis-related knee injuries, spinal stenosis, and rotator cuff tears, are sometimes treated surgically, which involves a substantial recovery period in addition to the inherent risks of invasive procedures. Physical therapy can often help patients avoid the need for surgery while achieving the same level of pain reduction.
