Rehabilitation Therapy Solutions

Physical therapy can help you recover from an injury and avoid future injury by improving flexibility and function, and building muscle strength. Physical therapy also is useful after joint surgery, especially for artificial joint replacement. The goal of the physical therapist is often to restore a person back to the point where he or she can perform everyday activities without difficulty.

To help you recover from injury your physical therapist will recommend exercises that increase the range of motion of an injured joint and build strength in the muscles around the joint. The physical therapist will also analyze how you perform an activity and suggest how to do the activity in a way that is less likely to incur injury.

Ultimately, the therapist will design an exercise plan tailored to your specific rehabilitation needs and, if necessary, show you how to use equipment that will assist with your recovery and mobility, such as walkers, canes, and exercise equipment.
