Physical Therapist Info

Physical Therapist Summary:
Find the top physical therapists in your area for chronic pain management, faster recovery from physical injuries, mobility improvement, private evaluation and personalized physical rehabilitation programs. Using a combination of targeted exercises and medical massage techniques, physical therapists work with clients on an ongoing basis to lessen muscle and back pain, restore movement and maintain overall physical well-being.

Local physical therapists provide services for patients of all ages and physical abilities. While physical therapy is associated with recovery from injuries and pain reduction, it is also widely recommended for patients who want to remain active as they get older and reduce the risk of age-related muscular deterioration.

Physical Therapy Treatments:


Physical therapists offer a number of different forms of treatment depending on the patient’s unique needs and challenges. While exercises that increase mobility and flexibility are the most common healing methods, physical therapists also specialize in:

- Ultrasounds for tendonitis, muscle strain and other musculoskeletal conditions
- Traction for victims of car accidents and patients with severe neck and back pain
- Light therapy for pain and injuries that are concentrated in specific areas of the body
- TENS (transcutaneous electrical neuromuscular stimulation) and other forms of electrical stimulation to stimulate injured or unresponsive tendons and muscle tissue
- Massage to alleviate pain, stiffness and general discomfort within the injured muscles
- Hydrotherapy to reduce inflammation, increase range of motion and improve blood circulation
- Joint mobilization therapy for patients with limited mobility and joint problems
- Hot and cold treatments for reducing pain, swelling, inflammation and stress


Physical Therapist FAQs:

What Can I Expect from My First Appointment with a Local Physical Therapist?
Because physical therapists evaluate each patient’s needs and medical history to create an individualized treatment plan, your first appointment will be a consultation. In addition to asking questions about your condition and goals, your physical therapist may give you a diagnostic exam that involves light exercises and other mobility tests.

Where Do Physical Therapists Work?
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics most physical therapists work in offices of health practitioners and hospitals. Physical therapy services are also widely available in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Most people who need outpatient physical therapy get treated at private medical offices and small clinics.

How Can I Find the Right Physical Therapist for My Condition?
You can locate the best physical therapists in your area with listings on Wellness.com, information from your insurance carrier and feedback on health review websites. Before scheduling your first appointment, check the physical therapist’s qualifications, track record of patient satisfaction, educational background and level of experience.

When Should I See a Physical Therapist?
Your primary doctor may recommend physical therapy if you have recently been injured or diagnosed with a physical condition. You should also consider seeing a physical therapist if you have chronic pain, joint disorders, muscle pain, limited mobility or age-related muscular decline. While you do not need a referral to see a physical therapist, schedule an appointment with your primary physician first if you are experiencing unexplained physical symptoms.
