In continuing with healthy alternative solutions in dealing with managing chronic pain, physical therapy (PT) is a great pathway to manage your pain. It is a safe and proven way to effectively treat chronic pain. In fact, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has begun their national campaign “#Choose PT Move Forward campaign” to bring awareness to the opioid epidemic throughout America.1 Check out the APTA web page for more information.
Physical therapists are experts in movement and movement is key to staying physically active and healthy. Physical therapists use evidence-based techniques to help individuals improve mobility, strength, balance and to relieve pain. PT can help you stay independent and help prevent falls to give you a better quality of life.
Try physical therapy first before using prescription pain medications and even before considering certain types of surgery! PT is an effective low cost option in regards to managing many types of pain such as knee, hip and lower back pain. Consult with a physical therapist today to learn more about getting relief from your pain.
