One of the hardest aspect of getting back to you feeling your best is recognizing something is not right with your body. Living with pain causes stress, lack of sleep, and could result in injury to muscle.
It is important to remember that pain is not normal even if you have been living with a certain level of pain for years. Addressing the pain could decrease your need for certain medications and could increase the quality of your daily life. Although individuals often recognize the pain, there is something standing in the way of getting treatment.
Whenever you encounter an injury or a pain, there is a concern you will be treated for an injury or pain case rather than being treated as a person. The power of personal attention and individualized care is that it is patient-centered. This means that your unique medical history will be considered as a treatment plan is formulated in order to bring you back to your best health. Choosing a practice that is patient-centered means a direct connection and communication to your physical therapist, which means that your treatment plan is customized specifically for you.
Having a direct connection to your physical therapist allows you to work with your physical therapist to address all the areas of pain as well as the causes of that pain in order to develop your unique treatment plan. Your treatment plan can include multiple types of therapy including agility training, pain management, hot or cold therapy, and therapeutic exercises. With the variety of different types of therapy, your unique treatment plan will ensure that you are on your way to feeling better and more like yourself. Your treatment plan will focus on improving your joint movement and flexibility so that you are able to perform daily tasks without pain or with a decreased amount of pain.
If you are experiencing pain and want to see if physical therapy can help you, book an assessment to gauge your pain and to discuss a potential treatment plan. Taking care of yourself is one of the best things you can do today.
