Benefits of Physical Therapy for Spinal Issues

Physical therapy is an excellent modality for patients looking to avoid surgery or to recover from surgery. Lower back pain such as lumbar spinal stenosis is sometimes treated with surgery, but physical therapy can work just as well. The goal of a physical therapist is to promote the patient’s ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. Physical therapy is an essential element of patient care. Some benefits of physical therapy include:

  • Physical therapists are trained to help decrease pain by identifying the underlying problems that sit at the core of your injury.
  • Physical therapy is an excellent way to relieve painful symptoms brought on by chronic illness.
  • Physical therapy plans are personalized for each patients individual needs.
  • Physical therapy improves quality of life
