The Basics of Physical Therapy
Physical therapy focuses on addressing issues with the musculoskeletal system and typically involves hands-on, physical treatments. This may include manual adjustments, therapeutic exercises, specific stretches, hot/cold therapy, electrical stimulation, and other tactics.
The best physical therapy treatment plans are customized to each patient and their specific needs. Some patients may be better served by electrical muscle stimulation, while laser therapy may prove more effective for other patients, for example. What’s crucial is identifying the root causes of your aches and then devising a treatment plan to address those issues.
Treatment should also be delivered one-on-one in order to maximize results. The therapist can also teach the patient how to perform exercises and stretches at home that will help resolve their condition. It’s important to learn how to perform these exercises correctly, however, or you could exacerbate your condition.

Physical Therapy Addresses the Root Causes of Pain
One of the best aspects of physical therapy is that it treats the underlying causes of pain. While medications can temporarily mask pain, they often fail to resolve the root causes of the aches. This means the pain will return as soon as the medication loses effect, which may be only a matter of hours. With physical therapy, however, it’s often possible to deliver lasting if not permanent pain relief.
Unfortunately, prescription pain medications can be expensive, hard to obtain, and addictive. Further, the body will develop immunity to many medications, rendering them less effective over time. These drawbacks make it difficult, if not impossible, to manage pain with medications alone.
Physical therapy can be used to correct issues within the body and to deliver lasting strain and pain relief. This way, patients can permanently resolve their pain without having to rely on medications. In turn, physical therapy can improve your quality of life, mobility, and more.
