What does physical therapy entail?

It’s an important question, and the answer will help you understand how physical therapy can improve your ability to move and function, while also benefiting your general fitness and health.

Rehabilitation includes a variety of common PT techniques and treatments that are specifically designed to address injuries sustained by the structures of the musculoskeletal system: bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and cartilage.

Common PT Techniques

  • Hot/Cold packs can prepare muscles for exercise and manipulation or reduce inflammation to make movement less painful
  • Electrical stimulation activates nerves in damaged tissues to help develop strength and stability
  • Ultrasound generates sound waves that are transferred to a specific part of the body using a probe. The sound waves travel deep into tissue creating gentle heat
  • Medical massage is an outcome-based massage that applies specific treatments targeted to physical therapy to help muscles function
  • Strength and stability exercises are used to help the body reestablish the proper function of the musculoskeletal tissues
  • Stretching tight muscles and joints can help relieve pain and get patients back to their previous range of motion
Other than these common techniques, physical therapists are also experts in “the science of healing and the art of caring.

“Since receiving treatment here, I can see and feel positive results in the areas treated. The atmosphere is most pleasant and relaxing which I feel also aids in recover.”

Deirdra

“Never having experienced physical therapy before, I had no idea what to expect. I feel so fortunate that my experience has been totally positive. Everyone helped me feel so welcome and comfortable. I feel that I am being challenged, but not too much. I feel that I make an improvement at each session.”

The Bridgewater Location is excellent! Every single staff person is on point. From day one when I called to schedule my first appointment and throughout my treatment staff were helpful, professional, and overall a caring and compassionate team. Their professionalism and caring was evident not only in my treatment, also in the treatment of other patients. Being in a room with multiple treatment stations you cannot help but notice the care received by other patients. My ankle is 100% better and if I ever need PT again I would not hesitate to return. I was always a part of the therapy process, if I had questions they were answered. If I wanted to improve my ankle health at home I was provided clear instructions for exercises. Staff were skilled and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this location to family and friends.
