When you are faced with an injury, physical therapy is often one of the first treatments recommended by doctors. At SCR&PT, our primary focus is to help our patients achieve full functional potential and improving strength. Whether your injury stems from a sport, overuse, surgery, or an automobile accident, our staff is well-versed in the latest physical therapy techniques that are essential for diagnosing and treating various conditions.
What Is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a form of care that aims to ease pain through activity-based treatment. Our physical therapists are movement experts that examine each patient and develop a treatment plan to manage pain, improve mobility, restore function, ADL, and improve strength in mobility. Strength exercises and therapeutic stretching are all non-invasive methods used to promote healing. Physical therapy also allows the patient to be actively involved in their recovery process. Physical therapists can effectively treat a variety of conditions. Some common conditions that physical therapy is used to treat include:
- Sports-related injuries
- Shoulder impingements
- Muscle strains
- Shoulder, knee, and back pain
- Post-operative pain
- Neurological conditions
- Chronic pain conditions
- Hand conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome
During your first session, our team will evaluate your symptoms and perform tests and take measurements to determine the root cause of your complaints. Some of these tests can include balance testing, strength testing, and postural reviews. Once the evaluation is complete, your physical therapist will discuss a plan of care with you. At SCR&PT, our goal is to help patients achieve their goals and return to a level of health that allows them to enjoy their lives free from pain. As a patient, you will be an active participant in your healing process.
