What should I know about physical therapy?

Nov11th 2020

Physical therapy is a natural, hands-on approach to relieving pain and restoring function. Physical therapy offers a proven, cost-effective, and safe way to manage back and body pain while reducing or avoiding the need for prescription pain medication. The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) recommends non-drug approaches to pain relief whenever possible. Choosing physical therapy for back and body pain instead of opioid drugs helps avoid risks like depression, overdose, and addiction.

Physical therapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and work closely with physicians. In addition, Wellspring utilizes an integrative holistic approach to evaluate and treat your pain condition, identify the root cause of your pain, and work to eliminate it naturally, avoiding the risks of prescription pain medications whenever possible.

While every patient’s condition and pain is unique, our physical therapist will use a variety of gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and computer-precision technology to relieve pain quickly and restore your function to optimum levels.

The overall goal is to restore pain-free mobility and function and to prevent the injury or pain from recurring.
