Physical therapy (PT), also known as physiotherapy, is a service that utilizes evidence-based kinesiology, exercise, joint mobilization and other treatments. PT aims to treat conditions such as tissue injuries, cartilage damage, arthritis, and physical impairments. Many of the services offered at Cohen Medical Centers is focused on improving the lives of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, ankylosing spondylitis, and other similar concerns.
What Is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy utilizes an individual’s history and physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish an effective management plan. Through the incorporation of laboratory testing and imaging technology like X-rays, MRIs, ultrasound, and bone density scans (DEXA), physical therapy can be targeted to address the exact problems that patients are exhibiting. After determining the source of a patient’s pain, our specialists can then provide exercise and mobility assistance to stimulate healing.
How Can Physical Therapy Help?
Stretching is vital in maintaining a good range of joint motion and muscular flexibility. Patients struggling with stiff joints or tight muscles can have a difficult time performing exercises, moving, and even engaging in everyday activities. With proper stretching, these functions can be preserved and improved over time. A proper program can help gradually improve patient well-being, improve motion, and decrease pain.
