Physical Therapy in Sauk Prairie
Experiencing pain or dealing with a painful condition can be very difficult. Some may go through long term pain from a chronic problem while others may be trying to live with pain that started with a recent injury.
Either way, there are times when your pain can be improved or resolved with the help of a physical therapist. Often, physical therapy and rehabilitation is utilized in conjunction with treatment from your medical provider.
How Can a Physical Therapist Help With Pain
Pain is often caused when joint, tissues, or nerves have been irritated in some fashion. New injuries, like a sprained ankle, can cause swelling and irritation in the area leading to pain. Chronic conditions, such as arthritis, can cause inflammation in the area of a joint also causing discomfort.
Physical therapists can help with painful conditions by evaluating a patient, getting an understanding of what is causing the pain, and providing customized rehabilitation services to improve or resolve the problem.
Physical therapy involves providing specialized treatment such as improving flexibility, reducing spasm, decreasing inflammation, or educating the patient in proper movement and prevention techniques.
In addition to manual therapy provided by the physical therapist, you may also receive passive therapies such as ice, heat, ultrasound, or muscle stimulation.
