Physical Therapy Q & A

What health benefits will I gain from physical therapy?

Physical therapists customize your treatment by drawing from a broad range of techniques and treatments (modalities). All of the therapies you receive have a physical impact that improves your health by:

  • Diminishing pain
  • Accelerating healing
  • Increasing blood and lymph circulation
  • Decreasing inflammation
  • Rebuilding muscle strength
  • Improving range of motion
  • Promoting flexibility
  • Restoring functional skills
  • Reducing stress
  • Correcting body mechanics
  • Improving balance

These changes work together to support your rehabilitation from injuries, diseases, and orthopedic surgery.

What health conditions improve with physical therapy?

Physical therapy has the potential to improve every condition that affects your musculoskeletal system, which includes your muscles and bones, together with ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and nerves.

Additionally, physical therapy has an essential role in chronic pain management and the long-term care of chronic diseases and disabilities.

A few examples of health conditions frequently treated by the team at Crom Rehabilitation include ACL injuries, herniated discs, arthritis, tendonitis, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, and other conditions responsible for shoulder, neck, and back pain.

What should I expect during physical therapy?

Your therapist completes a physical exam, including a comprehensive evaluation of your strength, range of motion, muscle performance, and respiration. They also assess your balance, coordination, and posture.

The results of your evaluation, combined with reports from your orthopedic specialist, give your physical therapist the information needed to create a customized physical therapy treatment plan.

A few examples of the therapies you may receive include:

  • Structured exercise
  • Strength training
  • Balance training
  • Gait training
  • Endurance training
  • Stabilization exercises
  • Flexibility and stretching exercises
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Joint mobilization
  • Electrotherapy

Your physical therapy program also includes a home exercise plan that supports and improves your results. 

If you plan to get back into competitive athletics, your physical therapy includes sport-specific training. They can also offer recommendations for your training regimen to help prevent a future injury.
