Physical Therapy

Physical therapy NYC also known as physiotherapy, is a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialty that, by using mechanical force and movements, modalities, remediates impairments and promotes mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention.

 

In addition to clinical practice, other activities encompassed in the physical therapy profession include research, education, consultation, and administration. Physical therapy services may be provided alongside, or in conjunction with, other medical services.

 

Physical Therapy can also be indicated if you suffer from pain, loss of movement or ability, to prevent from an injury. If you have an illness, the Physical Therapy won’t replace other doctors or other health care treatments, but will work alongside them. 

 

The main responsibility of Physical Therapists is to get you back in function, without having to experience pain and suffering, allowing the body to heal faster and helping you to do what you love without pain. 

 

The Physical Therapists are licensed health professionals, also called PTs or physiotherapists, that evaluate the conditions of your body and trace a care plan, to perform hands-on treatments for your injuries or symptoms, also teaching you how to exercise without putting pressure and more pain to your body.

Results 

 

The main goal is to get your body back on moving properly, without pain or any non-cured injury. Sometimes the treatments are long and the results take more time to be fully identified, but after the first session, your body will be more strong and prepared. 

 

Risks 

 

The most common risks for Physical Therapy are if you have swelling in the area of your body that you need to treat, so always talk to your physician before starting a new session. And you may experience discomfort and pain during the treatment, because the stretches, turns and twists can cause soreness and stiff muscles, but it’ll probably get better as the sessions goes by.
