Physical therapy programs often include a therapist using their hands to perform manual therapy in conjunction with specific exercises for your condition. These exercises can include stretching, core strength and stability, lifting light weights, and aerobics. The goal of each exercise will vary but are often designed to increase flexibility, reduce stress on joints, strengthen muscles, and/or mobilize joints.
Some of the many benefits of physical therapy may include:
- Reducing pain in muscles and joints
- Improving mobility and flexibility
- Recovering properly from an injury
- Getting back to playing sports
- Avoiding surgery
- Preventing falls
- Optimal post-surgical healing and recovery
