How Does Physical Therapy Help Manage Pain?

Physical therapy is an umbrella term for various types of treatment options that can range from manual therapies to cupping and needling. It’s an excellent choice for dealing with different types of chronic—also known as long-term—pains. Apart from that, it’s beneficial for recovering from injuries, surgery, and many other conditions.

Using physical therapy to manage pain is fairly commonplace due to its efficacy. Though not all bodies respond to physical therapy in the same way, it’s generally quite well received.

Most plans for pain therapy are customized, as are the ones we offer at PAIN+Recovery. We understand that everybody has a different pain threshold, so we tailor-make plans based on a number of factors. The end goal is to provide our clients with the chance to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

Physical therapy is the ideal treatment for long-term pain management because it’s a holistic approach to recovery. Most pain is very difficult to deal with, especially when persistent, which is why we believe in comprehensive treatment plans.

There are different benefits to the techniques of physical therapy, including:

1) Physical movement and exercise

There are innumerable benefits to exercising on a regular basis, even when done on your own. With physical therapy, however, the exercises are more targeted. They include stretches, movements, and motions that target specific musculoskeletal problems and areas that need more mobility and assistance. The exercises prescribed by your therapist are intended to help you manage your pain, both with and without supervision—i.e. at home and at the clinic both.

2) Combining different techniques

Your physical therapist will use methods that are suited to your particular problem. These methods vary from manual therapy and exercise to the use of heat and cold packs to manage inflammation and muscle stiffness. They can also use massage and electrical nerve stimulation; at our NJ or NY Pain Recovery Center you can seek our services for chronic pain recovery.

3)  Stability

The goal is to eventually increase your stability, manage pain, restore bodily functionality, and improve your overall quality of life. The benefits of physical therapy are intended to be long-lasting and without side effects such as substance dependence. With our trained staff and team of experts, we will work together to help you reach your goals and maximize your comfort.

Managing pain is not an easy task, but it definitely is worth it to find alternatives that will help you in the long run. To know more about your options for physical therapy and pain management, contact us here, or visit our Pain Treatment Center NJ or Manhattan.
