Physical Therapy Q & A
What is physical therapy?
While the human body has incredible self-healing power, it often needs extra attention and support to recover from chronic pain or injury. Physical therapy is a form of medicine that concentrates on helping the body regain the functional movement, strength, and flexibility required to carry out everyday activities. If you’re an athlete, the right physical therapy program can also help you recover the mobility you need to get back in the game and to avoid future injuries.
How does the physical therapy process work?
At Maiden Lane Medical, Dr. Zocca and her team provide referrals for physical therapy, depending on the condition she’s treating. They make recommendations about various types of physical therapy that would be useful for your problem. Working closely with the in-house physical therapy team, she coordinates your care from a multidisciplinary perspective to help you manage your pain and fully recover.
Before your actual appointment, your physical therapist may recommend X-rays, an MRI, or other diagnostic tests to best coordinate your treatment plan.
What happens at a physical therapy appointment?
Your physical therapy appointments may include a number of treatments or exercises, depending on your particular injury or condition. Some of the common methods the Maiden Lane Medical team uses are:
- Massage or trigger point therapy
- Heat or ice
- Electrical stimulation
In addition to physical approaches, your care might also include home-based adjustments, like dietary modifications, herbal supplements, and mindfulness-based practices.
What results can I expect from treatment?
Each person has a unique journey when it comes to physical therapy. Dr. Zocca takes a whole-person approach to ensure that your treatment is comprehensive and effective. Combining a variety of treatment methods helps most men and women recover quickly, as opposed to singular approaches like medication or surgery.
Your treatment plan may last several weeks or months, depending on your condition and the desired results. As you start to heal and regain strength, your team can help you implement strategies that support your long-term healing and prevent future injuries.
