Physical Therapy Q&A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy focuses on the assessment and treatment of injuries or chronic diseases that limit your mobility and physical function.

The physical therapy team at Applewood Chiropractic has extensive experience in customizing therapy plans to help optimize your mobility. They can also restore full function in your musculoskeletal system, so you can feel better and recover from injuries faster.

When should I consider physical therapy?

There are many conditions that can benefit from physical therapy. The Applewood Chiropractic team may recommend physical therapy to help you recover from or manage:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Sports injuries
  • Amputation
  • Spinal cord injury

If you’re older or have a condition that puts you at risk for the loss of your mobility, you may benefit from physical therapy. The team focuses on helping you maintain your independence and improve your physical strength and vitality.

For athletes at all levels, the physical therapy team can also work with you on strategies to prevent injuries and enhance your performance in your chosen sport.

Together with the chiropractors, the physical therapists at Applewood Chiropractic coordinate your care plan to maximize your results and your overall wellness.

What can I expect during physical therapy?

During your initial physical therapy visit, the Applewood Chiropractic team of physical therapists spends time reviewing your medical history and your current health. They perform a physical exam to assess important information about your condition or injury, such as your:

  • Balance
  • Muscle strength
  • Joint flexibility
  • Range of motion
  • Neurological function
  • Cardiac and pulmonary function

Based on the results of your exam, your therapist creates a treatment plan that includes strategies to improve your mobility and physical function. These strategies may include ultrasound therapy, rehab, exercises you perform in-office and at home, as well as heat or ice therapy.

Applewood Chiropractic also offers electrical interferential stimulation therapies, which use low currents of energy to stimulate nerves that contribute to pain. This treatment can also improve the range of motion and function you have in your musculoskeletal system.

The team also provides you with resources such as recommendations for exercises to do and lifestyle changes to make to help you stay physically active and healthy.
