Physical Therapy

What is physical therapy?

The focus of physical therapy is to strengthen, stabilize, or restore joints and muscles to their maximum range of motion, so everyday activities are easier and pain is minimal. These techniques almost always include some form of physical exercise such as stretching, walking, or core strengthening movements.

Physical therapy treatments often include the careful manipulation of joints, tendons, muscles, and bones by a trained physical therapist, and it can help with recovery and rehabilitation after some surgeries. Whether your pain is the result of an accident, sports injury, repetitive use, or a chronic condition, physical therapy can help improve your quality of life at any age. Think of your physical therapist as your health and wellness partner in recovery and well-being.

Can physical therapy replace pain medication?

Instead of masking or minimizing pain with drugs, the integrative specialists at Revive Medical offer all-natural pain relief through active physical therapy methods. These techniques strengthen and stabilize injuries or chronic conditions that cause discomfort or intense pain. Many people want to avoid taking over-the-counter drugs or potentially addictive prescription pain medications, and physical therapy is an effective, proven alternative to pain medication.

Depending on your individual diagnosis, your customized treatment plan may include one or more of the following therapies:

  • Physical exercises for strength and to increase range of motion
  • Gentle manual manipulation of joints
  • Therapeutic massage for relaxing muscles and increasing circulation
  • Low level light therapy (LLLT) to help your body heal itself
