PHYSICAL THERAPYSpring Creek Medical Center Physical Therapy in Logan
What is Physical Therapy?
The main purpose of Spring Creek Medical Center’s physical therapy in Logan is to improve the quality of your daily life. Physical therapists are trained experts who improve the quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care, and patient education. Physical therapy helps reduce pain, restore function, improve mobility, build strength, and prevent the overuse of opioids. Pain-free movement is crucial to your quality of life, your ability to earn a living, and your independence.
At Spring Creek Medical Center, our physical therapist treats patients with a variety of health conditions. The typical patient you probably imagine is either recovering from surgery or a car accident. However, those aren’t the only circumstances that could benefit from physical therapy.
Physical therapy can be incredibly beneficial for anyone that suffers from:
- neck pain
- headaches or migraines
- low back or back pain
- knee, shoulder, or hip pain
- repetitive stress syndrome
- neuropathy, vertigo, or balance disorders
- neurological conditions; stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injuries
- any other pain that limits your daily activity
Physical Therapists Do a Lot More Than Stretch Weak Muscles After an Injury or Surgery
Our physical therapist in Logan talks to each patient and evaluates their condition by testing joint motion, muscle strength, cardiovascular function, reflexes, and functional skills. After the necessary information is gathered, the physical therapist designs a treatment plan that will fit the patient’s needs and goals. The exercises in each individualized physical therapy treatment are intended to increase movement, flexibility, strength, and endurance. Physical therapists empower people to be active participants in their own treatment.
How Does Physical Therapy Work?
Physical therapy utilizes several different methods to help you reach your goals. Depending on your condition, your treatment will involve therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, ice and heat application, electrical stimulation, therapeutic massage, and patient education.
Physical therapy tends to only be a few hours every week. So, in order to create long-term solutions, our physical therapist educates the patient. This includes teaching them about the underlying cause of their issue and helps them change their everyday movement patterns.
Therapeutic exercises are the bread and butter for our physical therapist and your treatment. When joints, connective tissues, and muscles have been pushed beyond their limit (even torn or broken) almost nothing heals them faster than progressive range-of-motion and strengthening exercises. Our physical therapist often uses therapeutic massage to reduce scar tissue.
Why See a Physical Therapist?
Why not? You shouldn’t have to continue living with pain or limited mobility. Physical therapy can help you even if you aren’t injured. Self-medicating with painkillers will only mask the pain of a lingering issue.
Our therapist’s goal is to restore your physical ability and your independence. Joints are assessed for strength, alignment, and balance. Physical therapists teach you how to move better when walking, running, and climbing stairs. They can even teach you how to improve your posture. There’s no reason to avoid physical therapy in Logan if you find yourself in pain and/or with any limited mobility.
