What happens in physical therapy?
Physical therapists provide a method of investigating and solving problems for each patient’s condition. They begin with a thorough evaluation, which may include:
- Tests of the range of motion of your joints and the strength of your muscles
- Palpation of soft tissues (manual inspection of skin, joints and other tissue)
- A neurological assessment to ensure that your nervous system is functioning correctly
- A pain assessment
- An evaluation of your daily activities and how they are affected by your injury
After your evaluation is completed, the therapist will look at all the data collected and provide you and your doctor with a recommended plan of care. Your goals for treatment are important to us. As most of the responsibility for recovery lies with you. When we have a plan customized for your unique goals and needs, treatment begins.
Treatment in physical therapy consists of three main types:
- Procedures: Procedures are active treatments that require your participation or a therapist’s manual skills to promote healing and improved mobility. Examples include exercise programs, joint mobilization and gait training.
- Modalities: These treatments are passively provided to the patient to work on pain, tightness, swelling and other symptoms. Examples include hot packs, electrical stimulation and ultrasound. These treatments alone are only marginally effective in treating an injury and are most successful used with more active procedures.
- Education: Education and training of you and your family are among the most significant interventions a physical therapist can offer. Often your body mechanics or posture is contributing to an injury or pain. Working with your physical therapist to correct and change that positioning or habit can eliminate many problems.
Talk to your doctor about physical therapy
Your physical therapist is a skilled member of your healthcare team. They are trained in thorough evaluation and problem solving techniques. Your physical therapist will ask for your assistance in setting goals for your treatment and, on an ongoing basis, ask you to rate your improvement and your progress toward your goals.
