Be The Best You Can Be With
A Physical Rehabilitation Specialist In Surprise
When you need a physical rehabilitation specialist in Surprise, the area offers several choices. Certainly, your schedule and recommendations will help you narrow those choices, but selecting a specialist who will best help you should be the force that drives your decision.
Physical therapy services are sometimes focused just on the injured area. We take a broader approach to help treat the whole person and improve the way you move. Taking the whole body into account tends to give a patient greater overall mobility, and faster results, than focusing just on a single part of the body (even if that’s where the pain is centered).
We focus on your overall physical health while treating an injury. This leads to more long-lasting improvement. Translation: you’re less likely to have continuing bouts of pain after professional physical therapy.
Fitness Magazine has this to say about how physical therapy can help:
Many clinics offer preventive evaluations to determine muscle weaknesses or other imbalances that could lead to injury. If a problem is identified, the therapist will provide exercises to keep an issue like tight hamstrings from turning into something more serious, such as a hamstring tear. “Most injuries are the result of long-standing weaknesses,” says Kim Wallace, vice president of clinical operations for Excel Physical Therapy and Fitness in Philadelphia. “Correcting those problems now can save you a lot of stress and money later.” Indeed, in one study, PT reduced ACL injuries by 41 percent.
If you can’t touch your toes or complete a deep squat without pain, you should definitely consider making an appointment, says Kyle Kiesel, PhD, associate professor of physical therapy at the University of Indiana at Evansville. These are often signs of an underlying problem, such as tight hamstrings or underdeveloped glutes.
Even when the source of pain is limited to one area of the body, physical therapists and rehabilitation specialists are trained to help your whole body move better. This helps prevent the surrounding muscles and joints from getting injured and causing more pain. Obviously each part of the body is connected to another part. Oftentimes, pain will develop in one part of the body (headaches) that is caused or made worse by pain in another part (the jaw, for example).
