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, dysfunction 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. Every woman should get physical therapy after childbirth to get a full musculoskeletal assessment, especially of the abdominals and pelvic floor and get the help needed to return the body to normal.  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, Ann Duffy, Dr. Zocca and their team make recommendations about various types of physical therapy that would be useful for your problem. Working closely with the in-house medical team, they coordinate your care from a multidisciplinary perspective to help you manage your pain and fully recover. Dr Zocca, being a medical doctor specializing in musculoskeletal pain can provide referrals for physical therapy when needed.

What happens at a physical therapy appointment?

Your physical therapy appointments may include a number of treatments and exercises, depending on your particular injury or condition. Some of the common methods the Maiden Lane Medical team uses are:

  • Manual therapy techniques for joints and soft tissue
  • Movement based therapy
  • Stretching and strengthening
  • Retraining the movement and antigravity system to promote good alignment and posture
  • Maitland/McKenzie/Mulligan/IPA/PNF/visceral and vestibular techniques
  • Biofeedback
  • Electrical stimulation, heat, ice, ultrasound
  • Wearable sensor technology- Viperform from DoraVi

In addition to physical approaches, your care will include home exercises and might also include home-based adjustments, like workplace and dietary modifications, herbal supplements, and mindfulness/relaxation-based practices.

What results can I expect from treatment?

Each person has a unique journey when it comes to physical therapy. We take 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.

To have your symptoms assessed, contact Dr. Zocca, or any of our physical therapists at Maiden Lane Medical Physical Therapy by calling the office or booking a consultation online today.
