The Benefits of Physical Therapy

HROSM physical TherapistsThe physical therapy team at HROSM works hard to help patients get back to their normal selves, free of pain, so they can enjoy their daily activities once again. The goal of physical therapy treatment is stated best by the APTA’s (American Physical Therapy Association) vision statement: “Transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience.” Patients will find there are numerous benefits to undergoing physical therapy. Let’s take a look at some of these benefits!

Improve Mobility & Motion

No matter what part of the body aches – neck, shoulder, back, knee – our physical therapists have the experience and expertise to help patients
improve their quality of life. A physical therapist can help you move freely again without pain and discomfort and feeling renewed and ready to
move on.

Avoid Surgery

While surgery may be the best course of treatment for certain diagnoses, there is evidence to indicate that physical therapists can offer an
alternative in some cases. Additionally, if surgery is required, a physical therapy program can help enhance the outcome of the surgery!

Shorten Recovery Time

One of our top priorities is to shorten our patient’s recovery time, so that they can go back to enjoying the things they love. If a patient has an
injury involving a muscle, ligament or joint, physical therapy exercises can help those stiff areas to heal quicker.

Reduce or Eliminate Pain

Studies reveal that patients who undergo physical therapy experience greater improvement in function with less pain. In some cases, medication
is essential to managing many conditions, but physical therapists can provide an alternative to the long-term use of medications for the
management of pain and certain other health conditions.
