Physical therapy is the treatment of disease, injury or deformity by physical methods which includes but is not limited to massage, heat treatment, ice treatment and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery. If you are suffering from any kind of pain that hinders you from enjoying day to day activities, for example trouble bending over, overhead activities, sharp pains in specific areas such as neck or back, inflammation, or limited mobility, or if you have recently had surgery or suffered an injury and your pain has become too much to handle, you may need physical therapy.
The main purpose of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For instance, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed. It also helps improve and restore your physical function and your fitness level. Physical therapy can help with recovery after some surgeries to improve your mobility. Our physical therapists would help devise a treatment plan suited to your specific needs and wants. The doctors would than customize your exercise regiment for you to be able to continue the exercises in the safety and comfort of your own home to help your recovery move faster.
Our doctors are continuously going to different seminars to learn the newest and most effective ways to treat each aliment. We at Friedman Spine and Physical Therapy pride ourselves on the one on one care that you will receive while undergoing treatment with us.
