Physical therapy is an essential part of the healing process after a devastating injury or illness. Being immobile for any length of time causes the body to lose strength. Pain and inflammation can limit your movement, making it almost impossible for you to exercise as you should. Physical therapy, when combined with chiropractic adjustments and deep tissue massage, will eliminate inflammation and help you regain your strength and mobility. Many physical therapy exercises can be performed at home so you will not lose the progress you've made between sessions.
Rebuilding your strength is an essential part of the recovery process. While deep tissue massage manipulates the soft tissues after a chiropractic adjustment, physical therapy will take over the strengthening process once you begin to regain your mobility.
As you begin to move your body more and your strength starts to increase, your circulation will also start to improve, boosting your healing process. This allows the body the time it needs to heal, which is essential if the body is to mend properly and keep scar tissue to a minimum.
Flexibility and Range of Motion
Physical therapy does not just increase physical strength and mobility. In addition to improving circulation, it also increases both flexibility and range of motion. As you become stronger and the healing process progresses, you will be able to extend your range of motion, making it easier to move and flex your joints.
Your chiropractor understands that in order for your range of motion and flexibility to improve, the inflammation must be minimized and your musculoskeletal system must be brought back into the proper alignment to help the body maintain its delicate balance. Chiropractic adjustments, massage, and physical therapy are used to reach that goal.
