Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is one of the foremost necessary treatment modes of recovery for chronic pain.

A physical therapist is a well-trained, skilled health care professional who facilitates improving movement and manages the pain by safe stretching, conditioning, and strengthening exercise techniques.

The different modalities of physical therapy include hot or cold packs, ultrasound, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, spinal manipulation, diathermy, massage, and aqua therapy. These treatment options may be indicated depending on the type and severity of pain.

The two different forms of physical therapy include:

  • Active physical therapy includes physical exercise or stretching, whereby the patient uses their own force to reduce pain.
  • Passive physical therapy is where the modalities are done to the patient by the therapist.

A physical therapist tailors a particular exercise program per the individual necessities and goals.
