Physical Therapy Q & A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapists are trained to alleviate pain and improve function and movement with noninvasive and minimally invasive techniques. They focus treatments on cutting-edge technology, nutrition, and exercise, rather than addictive narcotics and prescription pain medication.

Physical therapy can help restore function to damaged tissues, muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments following an injury or accident, providing long-lasting pain relief.

How can physical therapy help me?

Regular physical therapy can help relieve pain and improve the symptoms of many different conditions, including:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Cystic fibrosis 
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Postsurgical pain
  • Arthritis

Many patients turn to physical therapy to recover after giving birth, to adapt to an artificial limb, prevent future injury, control bladder or bowel function, or manage a chronic illness.

How does physical therapy work?

The Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness team prepares an individualized plan that aligns with your health history and goals. Depending on your condition, your plan may consist of one or more of the following physical therapy treatments:

Exercise

The team can design an exercise plan that helps improve function in the area that’s causing you pain or limiting your mobility. This plan may include certain exercises and targeted stretches that strengthen your muscles, address muscular and structural imbalances, and reduce pain.

Manual therapy

Manual therapy typically includes massage, hands-on spinal manipulation therapy, joint mobilization, and strengthening exercises to help you regain full function of damaged muscles, joints, tissues, and more.

Ultrasound therapy

Ultrasound therapy is a noninvasive deep heating treatment that targets musculoskeletal pain. The team presses a wand against your skin near the injury site allowing your skin and muscles to absorb the energy to repair damage.

Electrical stimulation

Electrical stimulation devices help stimulate muscles or nerves to reduce pain and provide long lasting-relief.

Heat and ice therapy

Heat therapy increases circulation to damaged muscles and tissues, which helps relax muscles and reduce pain. Ice therapy, on the other hand, decreases pain and reduces inflammation at the injury site.

Your initial physical therapy visit to Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness includes a comprehensive evaluation and review of your medical history. This helps the team design a therapy plan that helps you reduce pain and regain function and mobility in the safest way possible.
