Why Is PT So Important?
If you’ve just had surgery to fix a joint or other orthopedic issue, you may think your medical care is done. It’s not. The recovery period immediately after surgery – or if you’ve sustained an injury that doesn’t require surgery – is critical to proper healing.
In general, physical therapy can help you meet your treatment goals, including:
- Restore function
- Increase flexibility and range of motion
- Strengthen muscles
- Alleviate pain and stiffness
- Move smoothly and efficiently after a joint replacement surgery
- Improve circulation
- Prevent falls
- Eliminate the need for pain medication
- Improve balance
- Correct posture or alignment issues
- Return to sports and other activities
- Reduce the likelihood of blood clots and other complications
- Prevent future injuries
- Manage chronic degenerative conditions like arthritis or osteoporosis
- Avoid the need for surgery
Keep in mind that every patient is different, and your PT program will depend on numerous factors including your orthopedic condition, severity of symptoms, overall health, and type of surgery you underwent (if applicable), as well as lifestyle preferences and work requirements.
Types of Physical Therapy
In the field of orthopedics, your PT program will be designed to address issues involving your musculoskeletal system – that is, your bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Examples of the therapeutic techniques that may be used as part of your physical therapy program at the Joint Replacement Institute include:
- Prosthetic and orthotic training
- Soft tissue mobilization
- Stretching and traction
- Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
When you comply with your physical therapy routine, you optimize the success of your orthopedic treatment such as joint replacement surgery. And for patients with chronic health problems, PT can actually help you avoid surgery. With all the benefits of physical therapy, why wouldn’t you want the better health and outcomes it offers?
