PHYSICAL THERAPY: INJURY, RECOVERY and WELLNESS

Written by: Jon Bissonnette- Lead Physical Therapist at T4K Adults in Weston, Florida



What is Physical Therapy and Why is it Important?

When a person experiences an injury due to performing daily activities, repetitive motion, motor vehicle accident, illness, or age, their physician will most likely refer the patient to a Physical Therapist.

While most minor injuries do not require therapy intervention, there are injuries that will not heal as expected and often require therapy to avoid lifelong disability. The therapist will assess the main cause of the injury and any functional deficits, and will prepare a plan, including both patient and therapy goals, for returning them to their desired lifestyle at the highest level of function.

What is Done During a Typical Physical Therapy Session? 

The Physical Therapist creates a plan for the patient that involves various exercises, stretching, strength training, and physical manipulation to help the patient recover.  There is also an allied approach given, with the inclusion of massage therapy and chiropractic care (as needed). As a health expert in movement-based-therapy, a patient will be educated about his/her condition, different treatments, and preventative techniques. The patient will be reassessed to track progress and report to their physician (as needed). The therapist will review a patient's daily activities (work and home) for body mechanic corrections and for future injury prevention, which plays an important role in general wellness.

  1. Immediate treatment website is owned by different people/organizations and for that reason have various solutions and types associated with physicians. Some centers provide x-rays, as well as ultrasound examination and a few offer only standard medical help. The locations will also be various. You have to think about the type of help you require and the place you want.

  2. One of the reasons this disease is difficult to treat is that it is usually diagnosed in the late stages. Early detection offers physicians a wider range of treatment options, including surgery, which are often not available options once the cancer has metastasized MesotheliomaHelp.org.
