How Physical Therapy Helps You Recover from Injury

Moving Foward Physical TherapyAt some point in time, nearly everyone suffers from an injury or condition that causes chronic pain and dysfunction of movement, balance, or coordination. Our Lady Lake rehabilitation specialists offer sports medicine and therapy services to decrease pain, improve movement, and help you get back to your usual self. Our physical therapists at Moving Forward Rehabilitation explain how physical therapy helps you recover from injury and move forward with you life.

Pain Reduction

The first step in physical therapy is the reduction of pain. We will use gentle manipulation of your soft tissues to assist with reducing inflammation and swelling that cause pain in muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Our physical therapists will show you how to perform gentle stretching exercises at home that will allow you to continue pain reduction between visits.

Increasing Flexibility and Range of Motion

Building flexibility and range of motion helps you recover from your existing injury and restores proper movement to help reduce the risk of incurring another injury. We use ultrasound, heat and cold therapy, water therapy, and electrical stimulation to increase the range of movement in your joints and muscles in the impacted area.

Increasing Strength

Restoration of strength is an important part of your complete recovery. To build your strength and endurance, we will work with you to strengthen the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that were injured. Our experts will show you exercises and make recommendations for activities that will help you get stronger and prevent re-injury. Over time, you will find that performing your daily tasks gets easier and less painful as your strength, endurance, flexibility, and range of motion improve as a result of ongoing therapy services.
