Physical therapy greatly reduces your back and neck pain. It also helps you heal and get back on your feet faster after surgery. With the help of Dr. Steigbigel and his team, patients in the Milford, CT area can reduce inflammation, increase their range of motion, and move around easier.
Physical therapy is a method of treatment that focuses on increasing mobility, relieving pain, and improving your overall quality of life. It tackles problems with the joints, muscles, or bones that may be hurting your physical function and fitness levels. A physical therapist will focus on improving the movement of joints as well as restoring flexibility, coordination, endurance, balance, and strength.
Typically, physical therapy can treat any sort of non-surgical back and neck pain, from various conditions like scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, stroke, injury, cerebral palsy, and more. It is also great for treating difficulty moving or bending, problems with standing up, or limitations with walking, running, or anything else that interferes with your daily activities.
It is also a great post-surgical method to help patients recover faster and more fully. It can help to reduce swelling, increase range of motion, build up strength, and increase the overall function of the muscles and joints that may have been affected during the surgery.
There are many different kinds of treatments, depending on what kind of ailment you suffer from. Perhaps the most common tool used is manual therapy. This involves massaging, mobilizing, and manipulating the soft tissues and muscles of the body in an effort to relax and loosen muscles, ease pain, and promote circulation.
Exercise is also an essential treatment, as building up muscle can help support the area and prevent future injury. Exercises prescribed can include stationary biking, gait or walk training, certain stretches, water aerobics, or lifting weights.
Other techniques can include posture training, cryotherapy, isotonic and isometrics, neck traction, heat therapy, pelvic traction, ultrasound, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, or a whirlpool bath.
In addition to your office treatments, your physical therapist will probably prescribe several home exercises for you to complete. This will help you stay strong and prevent any flare-ups of your condition.
