If you’re suffering from any kind of pain or strain that keeps you from performing functional daily activities, such as trouble bending over, sharp pains in specific areas such as neck or back, tingling sensations, inflammation, or limited mobility in limbs, or if you’ve recently had surgery or suffered an injury and your pain has become unbearable, you may need physical therapy.
Physical therapists (also referred to as PTs) are healthcare professionals who specialize in the care and treatment of individuals of all ages with minor to severe injuries, such as sports- or work-related injuries, or medical problems, diseases, or conditions that affects or limits patient mobility and daily activities.
Physical therapists will use a variety of treatments and physical exercises to rehabilitate patients or help prevent further injury. Many physical therapists work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, fitness facilities, health care clinics, and private practices. Each state requires a Physical Therapist to be licensed in the state they practice in.
Midtown Manhattan, New York City Physical Therapist Procedures
Initially, the physical therapist will examine the patient to understand the current condition. Then, the New York physical therapist will develop and implement a specialized treatment plan which will help reduce pain or strain, prevent further injury or disability, eliminate the need for potential surgery, improve and promote mobility, and or restore healthy function to a particular area or areas of the body.
Patients and PTs work together over a particular period of time, sometimes weeks or months, to help rehabilitate and treat the patient until they have reached the highest level of functionality possible. PTs also help many patients develop and implement fitness and wellness plans to foster a healthy, active lifestyle and prevent future injuries.
There are a variety of therapeutic procedures and physical exercise programs that PTs may employ to help treat individuals for their injuries or medical conditions. Depending on the level and severity of an injury or medical condition, some of these treatments may include but are not limited to:
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Medical Massage Therapy
- Physical Exercise Programs
- Chiropractic Therapy
- Acupuncture Therapy
- Ultrasound Therapy
- Personalized Physical Therapy
- Spinal Decompression
- Flexion-Distraction Therapy
Knowing when to seek the care of a physical therapist is imperative to preventative and rehabilitative care for patients. Too often, individuals wait until the pain or injury has become unbearable, many times resulting in the need for surgery, or worse, causing irreparable permanent damage or a long-term disability. If you’ve suffered a work- or sports-related injury, or if your daily activities have been severely altered by pain and loss of mobility, you should seek the care a physical therapist.
Physical therapists will examine you and provide you hands-on, personalized care with compassion and knowledge. Through specialized, custom treatment plans created specifically to treat each patient’s needs, NYC Physical Therapists offer their patients care to help them achieve a level of functional independence and confidence that far exceeds their expectations. The ultimate goal of a PT is to ensure their patients can live a pain-free, functional, and healthy lifestyle for a very long time.
