What is Physical Therapy?

I hear this question often from my patents.  My patents want to know what is Physical Therapy, how it can help and with what conditions.  They want to know what we will do and how; how long it will take and when they will get better.

Well, for start, I can say that Physical Therapy is a medical science that specializes in helping the body get rapid relief from pain, heal from injury, eliminate weakness and enhance performance during work, play, sports or leisure activities.

What conditions can Physical Therapy help with?

Physical Therapy helps adults with neck and back pain and kids with developmental disabilities but also people with serious  neurological conditions. Some therapists, like myself specialize in Women’s Health and treat pelvic pain, incontinence, pregnancy related issues, and prolapse. The list goes on and on. What is important to understand is that Physical Therapy can help with any pain, injury or weakness, joint, nerve or tendon issue. We help people get back to work after injury, return to sports, and improve physical performance of any kind.

How Physical Therapy does it?

Well, Physical Therapy is different. Unlike other medical intervention, Physical Therapy unlocks your healing potential without drugs, surgery, or injections. It is 100% natural and safe. It is much more affordable then injections, very often more efficient then surgery, and much safer then drugs. By focusing on the root cause of the problem and enhancing your bodies own healing power, much of the results are longer lasting then traditional treatments.

How we do it?

The Lilly Physical Therapy team is combining healing touch, functional movement, and cutting edge technology and our patients love it! We use manual techniques such us trigger point release to help with pain, circulation and promote healing. In addition to this we use movements specifically designed for you not just to reduce pain, increase strength, and flexibility but to help balance the body and improve strength and speed up healing.

How long does it take to get better?

Most of patients seen in our facility feel improvement right away and depending on the complexity of their condition, most of them get better within 6 to 12 sessions. Some patients require ongoing maintenance and care on a regular basis but this is not typical.
