What Conditions Benefit From Physical Therapy?
Frequently Asked Questions
While physical therapists help eliminate pain, some treatments, particularly those to regain loss of joint motion, can be painful. However, with ultrasound, E-stim, or TENS modalities, along with heat and cold pack, our therapists in their affectionately labelled “Torture Chamber,” achieve amazing outcomes with theirs hands on approach.
Chiropractors do utilize some of the same treatment modalities as therapists. Their approach of spinal manipulation to treat non-spinal problems is based on a 127 year old but still unproven theory that adjusting the spine allows the body to treat itself. However, our therapists are dedicated to educating patients about their problem and educating them to enable continuation of therapy at home to complete rehab and prevent future problems.
Treatment frequency and duration depends on the diagnosis, severity, and therapy progress until the patient can be transitioned to a home therapy program. The specifics will be discussed by your treating physician in conjunction with your therapist.
Physical therapy is often sufficient to cure many orthopedic problems. The decision to treat a specific problem with therapy alone or in conjunction with other treatments will be made by you and your Fort Lauderdale Ortho provider.
