Why See a Physical Therapist First for Pain?

Physical therapy might not be your first thought when it comes to nagging back pain, annoying headaches or other types of musculoskeletal issues and pain.

There are numerous studies that show a strong benefit when getting treated first by a physical therapist when dealing with musculoskeletal pain (or pain that affects the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves).

Physical therapists are movement advocates and work hard to treat your body naturally without the need for surgery. They also help you learn how to make modifications to every day activities to help you move with confidence and decrease the risk of falls and injury as you get older.

Physical therapists can treat your entire body by identifying the root cause of your pain. And not only do we address the area of pain, but we can teach you how to properly care for your body to decrease the likelihood of future injury.

Here Are Some Commonly Asked Questions About Our Customized Physical Therapy Offerings:

Q. Who provides physical therapy?

A. Physical therapy is provided by a doctor of physical therapy. Should you have a variety of health concerns such as sports medicine, spinal conditions, arthritis, post-surgical rehab, and other orthopedic conditions, it may be beneficial to consult a doctor with a trained physical therapy staff to learn more about the array of natural, non-invasive services that could be used during your course of treatment.

Q. Is a prescription necessary for physical therapy?

A. While a prescription from your primary care physician isn’t necessary to seek physical therapy, you may wish to obtain one in order for it to be covered by your health insurance. Many insurance providers need a prescription before they’ll reimburse you for an appointment.

Q. What should I wear to my physical therapy appointment?

A. Due to the nature of physical therapy exercises and stretches, loose-fitting clothing is recommended to allow for your full range of comfortable movement. This will allow us to easily access your injured area(s). Should you need to change clothes at our facility, we recommend you arrive a little early.

Q. How long are physical therapy appointments?

A. Physical therapy appointments last approximately 1 hour per session. We try to make it as convenient as possible for you, so as not to disrupt your daily routine.
