Pain Clinic wants to get you back to your normal activities and moving as well as new, if not better. By evaluating your movement patterns, habits, limitations, and rate of healing, they can design a rehabilitation program that will get you back in action as quickly and safely as possible.
Benefits of Physical Therapy in a Pain Clinic
- Address Movement Issues
Injuries or chronic pain can often be tied to underlying improper movement issues. Physical therapy can not only provide pain relief but help correct issues to prevent future problems.
- Prevent Scar Tissue Build-Up
After an injury or surgery, it is common for scar tissue to develop. But if scar tissue builds up it can cause pain and limit movement. Stretching and other movement techniques can prevent scar tissue build-up and ensure rehabilitation is not impeded.
- Improve Flexibility and Range of Motion
Muscles and joints can become tight and stiff, especially after an injury or surgery. Physical therapists can design a stretching routine individualized to your specific needs to improve your flexibility and range of motion.
- Strengthen Muscles
Weakened muscles place a strain on the joints and strength imbalances can lead to injuries. Strengthening exercises can improve muscle strength in the muscles associated with your injury and the surrounding muscles.
- Improved Outcomes
The goal of physical therapy is to ensure you regain mobility, flexibility, and pain-free movement after an injury or surgery. The concept is to get back to normal or have even better movement and strength. Outcomes can be improved with physical therapists focusing on addressing pain, scar tissue development, strength, range of motion, and more.
