When your ability to move is impaired, it can affect every aspect of your life. It might be difficult to work or even play with the kids. Every day can be a struggle. However, there are treatment options available.
Physical therapy can help tremendously. It can help people get back on their feet after sustaining an injury. It can also help those people suffering from debilitating disease. Good physical therapy can relieve pain and elevate mobility for many patients. Here at Medical Access, we provide physical therapy in Germantown MD, Woodbridge VA, and Alexandria VA.
Is physical therapy right for me?
Do you have chronic or acute pain and have you had trouble managing it? If so, we can help. If you have restricted mobility, we can treat you. Our treatments are optimized to exercise and strengthen your joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This helps to increase their range of motion and optimize their functionality.
The goals with physical therapy are to reduce pain, enhance functionality, and prevent the progression of chronic conditions. For example, our patients with arthritis tend to benefit greatly from physical therapy. Arthritis causes joint inflammation and pain, which can limit mobility. Physical therapy works to exercise the joint without overexerting it. This strengthens the joint and the muscles around it, which eventually helps the patient use the joint more easily. This is just one example of many as to how physical therapy benefits patients.
We also help many patients with musculoskeletal problems due to an injury or chronic condition. Additionally, we receive many patients who have been injured at work, while playing sports, or in an auto accident. Physical therapy can also be very effective for patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, developmental delays, or muscular dystrophy.
