Living with Pain? Why PT Makes Sense
Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Living with pain is not fun. Just ask any of the thousands of people who suffer through it every year. Whether it’s a result of arthritis, lack of flexibility, an overuse injury, a traumatic injury, tendonitis, bursitis or something else…there are treatments available. And if you haven’t yet tried Physical Therapy, consider discussing it with your doctor. Why?
Pain can impair motion and normal mobility. It can also be related to or associated with weakness, muscle tension, and symptoms of numbness or tingling at times. Being able to be properly evaluated by a physical therapist is important in identifying the musculoskeletal relationship of your symptoms and potential paths of recovery through exercise, manual therapy, modality use, aquatics and/or massage therapy.
If you feel that your pain is holding you back from pursuing your desired physical activities, which may include exercise for fitness or weight loss, please inquire on how physical therapy can help you. We have five west Michigan locations near Grand Rapids, Muskegon, and Kalamazoo, making it convenient to where you work and live. Give one of our offices a call to see if physical therapy is right for you.
