Physical therapy at PT Solutions also serves our population of aging adults. Older adults will appreciate a personalized approach to care offered at PT Solutions. A physical therapist will work with you to assess your physical abilities and limitations and help you regain strength and mobility. Physical therapy can help older adults prepare for an upcoming surgery by working to improve healthy functioning beforehand. A physical therapist can also help you through the recovery and rehabilitation process so you have the confidence to safely regain your strength and range of motion after an injury or surgery.
Pain Management and Physical Therapy
Physical therapy offers a natural and effective solution for pain management. Through stretches, exercises, and other therapeutic techniques, you can take an active role in learning how to manage and relieve your pain. A physical therapist may work with you to strengthen areas of weakness and work through stiff muscles. Learning how to increase your flexibility and improve your range of motion will also help reduce pain and discomfort while participating in daily activities and routines. Part of physical therapy at PT Solutions involves gaining the confidence to move through your regular routines safely and effectively so you can avoid future injuries or surgeries.
PT Solutions of Shawnee also offers dry needling in conjunction with physical therapy and other evidence-based treatments. Dry needling uses needles to stimulate and release trigger points in your muscles that are causing you pain. These needles do not have medicine or fluids in them. Instead, they are designed to target irritable muscle knots that may exacerbate your pain from an injury or a health condition like chronic headaches, tendonitis, or sciatica. Your physical therapist at PT Solutions may recommend dry needling along with other treatments like exercise and manual therapy for a comprehensive approach to pain management.
Physical Therapy for Rehabilitation
Physical therapy can help you prepare for surgery as well as recover from one. Your doctor may recommend you see a physical therapist to prepare for an upcoming surgery to help improve your healthy functioning and endurance before the procedure. Physical therapy before surgery, sometimes known as prehab, will target areas that may experience weakness or stiffness while you recover. By focusing on your strength and stamina, physical therapy before surgery can help improve your outcomes for a successful surgery and rehabilitation process.
Physical therapy is perhaps better known for its benefits while you recover from surgery. Rehabilitation after surgery may not always be an easy process. A physical therapist can walk alongside you through the recovery and rehabilitation so you can regain your strength and mobility after surgery. A surgery may limit your mobility for a period of time, during which your muscles can become weakened and stiff. Physical therapy will help safely reintroduce movements so you can get back to your regular routines and activities.
Physical Therapy for Injury Recovery
Recovering from an injury may require additional support and intervention from a trusted Shawnee physical therapist. At PT Solutions, our team of clinicians will provide you with a personalized plan for care that addresses your specific needs and goals for treatment and recovery. Physical therapy after an injury can help you restore and improve range of motion over time. You may need persistent training to support you while your body repairs an injury like a broken bone or torn muscle. An injury may cause uncomfortable symptoms that take a while to go away, and a physical therapist can help you manage those symptoms through evidence-based treatment techniques.
Shawnee Sports Physical Therapy
PT Solutions of Shawnee also offers physical therapy for athletes of all ages and skill levels. Whether you are a professional athlete or interested in running your first 5K, a physical therapist can provide you with a running analysis to help you improve your performance and reduce the risk of injury. A running analysis will assess your lower extremities and analyze how you run. Your physical therapist will then use this information to develop a personalized plan of care to address your strength, coordination, and joint mobility. Our physical therapists work with you to improve your running skills while also helping you avoid injuries. We also offer analysis for other sports, including golf and tennis.
