Physical therapy helps reduce pain, restores function, improves mobility, and builds strength. Pain-free movement is crucial to your quality of life, your ability to earn a living, and your independence.
Spring Creek Medical Center’s physical therapy treatments often help patients recover from surgery or help improve weak muscles. They might also help athletes reach a higher performance capacity or simply offer a higher quality of life to someone who wants to get more from their body.
Physical Therapists Do More Than Stretch Weak Muscles After an Injury or Surgery
Individual tests will be run on each patient by a trained physical therapist. We test 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. We help people learn to improve their body even after they stop treatments.
Dr.Garvert is the best chiropractor I’ve ever seen. He took care of me back in 2006 when I had a major car accident. And he recommends the right amount of physical therapy and massages and always does it at a reasonable price. When my right trap seized up he also helped me work through that and made great recommendations besides adjusting me and getting my back in line enough to help the muscle relax. I can’t say enough about Dr. Garvert! I’ve seen a lot of chiropractors in my time and he is definitely the best one I’ve ever seen! -Jessica H.
How Does Physical Therapy Work?
Physical therapy is a complex system with several treatment options. That is why every patient gets a plan created specific to their needs. Depending on your condition, your treatment will involve therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, ice and heat application, electrical stimulation, massage therapy, and patient education.
In general, physical therapy tends to only be a few hours a week. So, in order to create long-term improvement, our physical therapist educates the patient. By teaching a client about the cause of their injury and future challenges that may arise, we can help patients maintain healthy habits for a stronger body.
Physical Therapy Can Be Beneficial For Anyone Who Suffers From:
- vertigo, or balance disorders
- neurological conditions; stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injuries
- any other pain that limits your daily activity
